More Scrapbooking

Well after scraping day with friends I came home and made a couple of more pages for my Life Story book.  This page explains my name, I was named after my grandmothers and I added their pictures to the page.  They both had died before I was born, so I don't personally know them.

I also did another page for my baby brother.  I used some ideas from Kiwi Lane.  I still have a hard time covering up the designs, but I am sure I will be soon.
Today I watched this video done by Kiwi Lane showing how to make this waterfall page and I went right into my sewing room and made it. The link will take you to the You Tube video.
There are three pages that fold over each other plus two frames on the main paper.  So Kierra and can place five pictures on this one page.  It was fun.  Each picture shows the different waterfall page.  In the top one I use my rounded tip scissors to hold down the top one, it wanted to pop up.

The flower was covered with double sided tape and then ribbon was place on top of the tape and cut around the flower shape.  Kierra isn't much of a flower girl but I think she will like this one.

I was going to place a skull embellishment in the flower center but I couldn't find them.  So I used a black flower.

I also managed to finish 3 more Yo-yos at this rate of three a week it will take me another 19 weeks to just finish the yo-yos.  Oh well, I knew it would be a slow quilt.
Well have a great week and have fun creating!
