I've been busy scrapping (and forgetting to upload here)

Hi Friends,

I didn't realize I had gotten behind uploading here...but I guess so!
I've done a few more pages, this one is of photos taken about a year and a half ago...but the pictures are so cute I couldn't resist scrapping them. Plus I wanted to try the "curved" paper trick (it's not as easy as I thought it would be.)

I also did this's of my oldest child...she's grown now, but we had taken her to "Glamour Shots" for her 8th grade graduation photos, and this was one of my favorites. I thought she should have a page, too. I've been concentrating on the youngest of the bunch, but figured it was time to branch out a little. This is a QP (quick page) so all I had to do was add her photo, and a few embellishments:

I learned that "extraction" means to extract the subject from the background of a photo...basically a "cut-out". I've been wanting to do a layout with just one photo, and also learned how to enhance eyes in a picture...I thought this photo of ds was SO cute, and couldn't resist enhancing his eyes, and of course that developed into a layout...

I really wasn't satisfied with that single photo layout, so thought I'd try again. I browsed a bunch of layouts at the Scrap Matters Gallery and then was inspired to do one with dd's sonogram photos and my belly shot...I really like it! What do you think?
