I have always admired and been amazed by other peoples' skills with the art of scrapbooking, but it seems to require a lot of stuff to do it, not to mention time and creativity, so my attempts to do it myself have been few and far between. Recently though I have become intrigued with "digital scrapbooking" and "hybrid scrapbooking." When my folks came down from Oregon for a visit, I ended up with lots of cool pictures and decided to try creating a mini album. It took tons of time, and was not inexpensive (since I have very few scrapbooking supplies on hand), but I am pleased with the results. I sent it to my mom for Mother's Day along with a photo CD of all of the great photos we had taken. Here are some pictures I took of it before I dropped it in the mail.
I love that living in Texas I get to use that good ol' Western theme.
Many of the page markers were cut out of an old pair of Levi's jeans.
The star on the left page was a freebie they hand out to kids at the information center at the Fort Worth Stockyards.
This is my daughter Melanie's favorite page. She likes the ribbon trim around the picture of the antique bathtub.
Love the Levi's tag on this one - the paper is pretty great too!
Y'all come back now y'hear.
