As promised, today I will be sharing some pics from the 2 scrapbooks I recently made. This 2 album set is special because the star of these scrapbook pages is a sweet little boy named William. William’s short life touched so many people and although I never met William, I was also touched by his beautiful smile, his happy and cheery little face and his unwavering ability to completely capture everyone’s heart.
In total, there are 40 pages, some of which I will share with you now. I had 34 pictures to work with and added other pages for notes, memories and letters. I have used various dies, Scan N Cut, MS Word, quotes from Internet, ribbons, pearls, pearlized envelopes, hand punches, string, and various embellishments. I also used 2 teddy bear die cuts that I received from Candace in a past card making swap. Page 22 is a scent page that includes a piece of wool felt inside a clear acetate envelope that can be sprinkled with William’s favorite bath time scent.
