Welcome to this month’s CTMH Technique Blog Hop.  If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Sheila Bennett.

I chose the Honeycomb Embossing Folder for my layout.  I think it gives the impression of brick.  It adds a beautiful touch to the page!

Picture My Life as a Specialty Album

I have had this album planned for a very long time and have finally gotten around to doing it.  I had all the supplies, pictures, and everything ready.  When it came time to sit down and do the album, it came together very quickly.  I had a variety of photos that were easy to fit into page pockets on hand.  It was just a matter of cropping the photos, rounding the corners, adding them to the pages and filling in the spaces with cards.  Below are the pages that I made to complete my album.  This is from last year’s dance and I will just add on to the album for this year.

This won’t change my style of scrapbooking as I still prefer traditional layouts but it was a nice change and perfect for a special topic (like dance in this case).  It would also be a good option for a Christmas themed album.  I used the Skylark theme but there are many other Picture My Life Scrapbooking Programs to choose from.
