Using Feb.'s Kit

I must admit it has been a HUGE challenge for me this month to use this kit. I really do love what I put together, but am stumped for pictures to go with it. The first thing I noticed was it had kind of a vintage vibe going, so I scrapped a page using a photo that has hung in my house for years of my husband and his brother (circa 1957 or so). I'm glad it will be in a scrapbook just in case the picture gets put away or lost some day.

The other hard part for me these days is scrapping my oldest son who just turned 20. Lucky for me he's an artist who loves photography and is always taking my point and shoot camera (which has a video feature on it) with him on his adventures. He shared with me his latest off-roading fun, so I just went with it.

Now that some challenges are coming, I'm looking forward to making some other layouts & cards and being inspired by everyone's work. Thanks for stopping by!

LOL I am having the SAME probelm! The layout is wonderful, though. Blocking the paper was a great idea!

I can only hope that my kids will like to take pictures when they get older are very lucky! The layouts are beautiful.
