August Kit from The Scrapbook Get-Away!

I just love this months kit from the The Scrapbook Get-Away!

Grandma's Closet
This kit reminds me of what you would see if you were to take a peek inside of Grandma's Closet. The collection of papers from Jillibean Soup and American Crafts is a wonderful array of colors and designs. All papers are double sided.  Two specialty papers included as well.  Embelllishments from Jenni Bowlin, Prima, Jillibean Soup, Zva and American Crafts alphas in chocolate. Yummmo!  Visit The Scrapbook Get-Away to see what our Design team has done with this glorious kit.

Here are 3 layouts I created so far with this wonderful kit, and I still have tons of product left over for more creations!!

Be sure to keep an eye out on The Scrapbook Get-Away message board & blog for information on our upcoming Blog Hop & on-line Crop!!

Thank you for looking!

Wanted to share some Heritage Pages

Hello All!

I wanted to share some Heritage Pages I've been working on.  While going through some photos my dad had given me a while back, I found an envelope that contained the photos from my grandparents' honeymoon in 1939!  I was SO excited!  So, I have decided to create an album of these photos.  I want to preserve these photos and pass them along to my girls!

I chose to use the original photos, using photo corners to add them to the page.  So, they are removable if the need ever arises.   This first page I think I've shared with you already, but I wanted to include it in this group. 

Thank you for looking!

Have A Wonderful Day!
