Have you ever....

Nope, we're not playing some sort of strange game involving a cup and M&Ms! (I'm not the only one out there who remembers playing that game during awkward get-to-know-you events in high school and college, right?) I want to know.... Have you ever held onto a photo (or a bunch of photos) for years, waiting for the right paper to come along and be perfect?? I have!! I've had these photos from my son's baby blessing day three and a half years ago, and I've gotten them out a number of times intending to put them on pages and into an album, but the paper wasn't quite right and back into the photo box they'd go.  I was starting to think I'd never get these poor pictures in a scrapbook, until I came across some paper I bought on a whim at the last Scrapbook USA Expo in SLC (in September).... It was My Mind's Eye's Kraft Fun Day line and it worked so well with the brick background and the "Dr. Suess clothing" I had J dressed in (my older brother claims I dressed my babies in brightly colored striped sleepers which made them look like Dr. Suess characters... I just don't see it ;)  ) along with all the other clothing and colors going on in the photos.  So I got to work scrapbooking and here's one of the pages:

And some detail of the upper right side:
Supplies: patterned paper, twine, brads, chipboard (My Mind's Eye); ink (Ranger); pen (ZIG)
Kiwi Lane Templates: Rings 2 & 3 (traced for the stitched circles), Tags 1 & 7, Tiny Tags 1T & 5T , Adventure 1 & 2
On a side note: soooo glad I keep index cards in with my photos that tell the date and any other info of the event (I make them right after I print my photos), otherwise I'd have spent HOURS trying to find the date for these pics!

I did do more pages, but don't have photos of those.  I'll post when I get them done...

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping!
