Back to Scrapbooking!

Yes, I know... this is my THIRD post today! But I simply cannot stand to leave you all with a bunch of jabbering (even when it's EXCITING jabbering!) and not show you something I've created! So here is the latest page I've made - and it just so happens to include the word "celebrate" on it, so I think I'll submit this one to Shelli's challenge (found at!

This is a picture of me and my two oldest boys - then just barely 2 and 4. That's Morgan on the left, and Mason on the right. I must say, Morgan looks just like baby Maddox (who happens to be almost 2 himself at the moment)! Just like my earlier pages, this one is for my 6"x6" Favorite Photos album, where all the pictures are black and white. You can view the rest of them at this link.

You can see that I used some of the NEW Bella Rose Designer Series Paper (included in Group 4 in my Paper Share!). As a demonstrator, I was able to preorder this particular pack, and I've been playing with it quite a bit... I must say, I do think that this is my very favorite pack. But who knows, once I get my hands on the other packs, I may say the same thing about them!! There truly is an outstanding selection of DSP in this new catalog! You can also see a few of the new In Colors here - Kiwi Kiss , Riding Hood Red, and Pink Pirouette. If I would've had the textured Pink Pirouette cardstock, I would've used that, but I don't have it... yet. Oh, believe me, it's already on order!!

For the sentiment, I had to force myself not to use the Scallop Circle punch like I always do (love that thing!)... so I used the Key Tag punch instead... L-O-V-E IT! Here's a closer look:

The Rhinestone Brad goes through all layers, except the ribbon. Then I used the Horizontal Slot punch on the ends of the Key Tag so I could thread the Chocolate Chip Wide Grosgrain ribbon through.

Well, I'm still hooked on this little album... can't wait 'til my next page! But I promise I'm done blogging for today. I'll tell you about the current promotions tomorrow. :)
