Every month I look forward to seeing what designer Melissa Craig has made to share for our twice-monthly "Scrapbook Saturday" posts, and I sure hope that you do, too! When I saw this week's layout, though, my jaw dropped. Not only is the page she created stunning as always, but, well...that's a baby me in those photos!
Melissa is a dear friend outside of our team, and she very sneakily borrowed some photos without me knowing to create this sweet page. She was worried that I might be upset about it, but quite the contrary -- I'm touched that she did this! Until two years ago, I didn't have any baby pictures of myself, and the ones that I do have now are fragile, so I've worried about destroying them in the process of scrapbooking them. Thank goodness for digital scrapbooking, and for Melissa thinking to handle them this way! Besides, now you all can giggle at what a goofy-looking baby I was, with my red curls just starting to come in, finally, at age 2! :-)
To make this page, Melissa used digital paper and tags/frames from the "Blue Christmas Kit." Aren't the little accents she added from her own stash of digital goodies -- the snowflake, bow, and that snowy white pinecone -- just darling? The white and light blue accents pick up the snowy swirls in the background paper so beautifully, and help to bring light to what I know to be some pretty dark photos. Of course, the large, white title is the perfect topper for a page celebrating the day of our Lord's birth -- Joy to the World, indeed!
By the way, the kit that Melissa used is one of three versatile Christmas kits that we introduced just last month. I hope to make and create more such kits going forward. Each of the Christmas kits includes five 8.5x11-inch printable digital papers as well as 30 coordinating patterned tags/frames. You can find each of the sets in our shop, and of course, as I said, I hope to bring you more soon! :-)
