I've slowly been adding to my scrapbooks thanks to MFT and decided today that I'm going to do an album for my oldest of all the pictures I take of her and all of her friends.  I know she will cherish it someday.  I will include traditional 12x12 pages and some Project Life type pages, whatever scrapbooking mood I happen to be in that day :)

Anywho....I used the Project Life layout today (MFTPL1) because I had many pictures I wanted to use and my 4x6's were too big for the other layout.  I'll list the stamp sets and Die-namics I used as we go along!  So sit back, relax and enjoy!

Here's the sketch:


This is the whole page in it's entirety.  I did leave out the element from the sketch for the upper right corner because I didn't want to cover up the photo.  The 3x4 pictures in the center were two 4x6 photos that I just merely cut in half to fit in the spaces.  The two outer pics was actually one picture with both girls peeking out from either side of the tree.

This is the upper left pocket.  I used the High Rise Uppercase and High Rise Lowercase Die-namics for the words.  The circle/sentiment was made with Behind the Camera Die-namics and Stamp set.  The film strip was made with the Mini Film Strip Die-namics.  The two notched flags were made with the Fishtail Flags STAX and the Fishtail Flags Layers STAX.  The patterned paper is Crate Paper On Trend.


This is my favorite picture.  These girls are beauties for sure!


This is the center picture.  It was a 4x6 but I cut it in half to make two 3x4's. The word Friend was cut using the High Rise Upper and Lower alphabet.  I added three letters to each picture and finished each with an arrow from Lead the Way Die-namics.


This the lower left pocket.  The top three words are from Pretty Pocket and were cut out with the smallest die from Fishtail Flags STAX.  The bottom sentiment is from Behind the Camera and was cut out with the new Howdy Frames Die-namics.


And finally the camera from Behind the Camera Stamp set and Die-namics and some more of the Mini Film Strip Die-namics.

I hope you get the chance to play along with this new monthly feature from MFT!!
