Good morning! I am not a chronological scrapbooker. I scrapbook whatever I am inspired to, whenever I am inspired to, so I may scrapbook a photo from when our boys were little or from a couple of years ago when one of them graduated from high school. I find that I am much happier with my creations when I am inspired to create something. The beautiful colors from the Rusty Weather paper inspired me for this layout.
To create this layout: Step 1 – Trim our papers to the following sizes: 1 at 12″x12″, 1 at 12″x11″, 1 at 12″x7″ and 1 at 12″x6″ and a photo mat. Distress all edges.
