A New Scrapbook Started

My youngest daughter, Alex, is in her Freshman Year at the University of Alabama in Birmingham. She joined a sorority and does so many fun things that I wanted to capture the moments in a scrapbook for her. I am doing the whole scrapbook in kraft, red, black and white with a few other colors mixed in. All base pages are kraft and the cover is done in burlap with handmade burlap and red flowers. Here are a few of the pages I have done for the album:


On the first page, I used the text cloud and songbird image by Dawn Collins (available from Squigglefly) - it is one of my favorite images of all time. Alex loved that I put UAB and AOII in the little hearts. I can't wait to finish this scrapbook - I have 150 more fun pictures and still two more months of school (including Spring Break) to go. For inspiration, I have been doing the Scrapbook challenges on Splitcoast Stampers - they are so fun! You can find them HERE.

Hugz!

  2. Nancy, how wonderful you are doing this scrapbook for your daughter. She is beautiful and so is your other daughter. I've seen photos of both. They got good genes. You'll have to take a look at my AL card I made Friday. She'll need one of those someday. :-)

  3. Fabulous layouts and I love your color combo that will go throughout. It would have been funny if my son (also an Alex) and she were to date like you mentioned before. :-)
