Another 10 Year Album

When I found out the theme for the August Scrap Our Stash Challenge was to “re-do” something I thought I was in trouble.  I am not one to go back and redo any of my layouts.  I’m just glad they got done in the first place!  Plus, it’s interesting to see how my scrapping style has changed over the years.  It’s also funny to hear compliments for some of the layouts that I don’t really care for; we all have different tastes.  So back to the challenge….my second child turned 10 this year and this ended up to be the perfect opportunity to get something completed in a timely manner.  For my first, I had created a 10-Years of You album that featured a photo of her each of her 10 years.  So I decided to “redo” that same project for my second 10-year-old.  Let me tell you it was much easier the second time around!  I simply used the same album and layouts, choosing different papers and embellishments to suit a different personality.  The only trouble I had was that I stamped all the numbers and did the album backwards and when it came to doing the title it did not match my front cover paper.  Not a big deal to switch it up and I even used a number 3 in place of a the letter E.  The cover paper did just happen to have a nice lace/ribbon border that looked great on the front cover.  Here is the outcome:

 

Supplies used: CTMH All-Sorts Mini Album, DCWV patterned papers (stack), CTMH White Daisy Grosgrain Ribbon, Kaisercraft Rhinestones, Mark Richards Crystal Stickers, EK Success Precious Finds Adhesive Gems, Colorbok Gems Adhesive Accents, Miss Elizabeth Foam Letter Stickers, Basic Grey Bling It, and rhinestone border and ribbon from my stash.
