Traditional and Digital Scrapbook Inspiration

Happy Oct 18, 2012

My granddaughter turned 7 months old yesterday.  My grandson turns 2 on the 25th 
AND I have 10 more days until I am another year older.
I have been looking back at all my scrappy stuff both Traditional and Digital and the years are showing.
My hair is looking a bit gray and I have put on a few pounds.
The memories are fading from my mind so I am very thankful for my scrapbooks.

I started traditional scrapbooking in 2000 and was introduced to digital scrapbooking in 2010,
but didn't really start doing digital until 2012.
I love both methods but find I have less mess with digital and I spend less money too.
I wanted to share a few of my pages with you.  I hope you can find some inspiration in them.

This is one of my favorite traditional pages.  
With the help of my cricut I created this framed look enclosing the pictures under the word Fall.

Another traditional page I love is this one 
This one is 2 layers with the top layer cut in the center to make pie pieces then flipped out
creating a 3D frame.

Now onto some of my favorite digital looks.

I hope you enjoy seeing some of the pages I have created.
Please leave some love if you do.
Thanks for stopping by the Scrappy-Penguin

Shades of Autumn

Fall is in the Air and Shades of Autumn every where
This is my favorite time of year... Sweaters, hot chocolate and decorations.
This is a special year for my family and we intend to do it up right.
I hope you have fun plans and lots of picture taking ops.

Here is a new kit by Tami Miller Designs created for the Grab a Byte exclusive at Scrapbook Bytes

With beautiful elements perfect for elegant photos or even those 
fun "playing in the leaves" pics... this kit is perfect!
I created this page using a photo of my daughter and her children.  The picture represents "New Beginnings" and while most of us think of Spring for new beginnings I think of the the "old" falling away 
to reveal the new seasons of our life.

Be sure to check out this kit at the great price of $1 per pack.  
And a little birdie told me there will be add on's coming soon.

Well I have waited since June for today... actually it has been a year of waiting for this day to come.
I shared a page a few days ago....  Yep this one.

I am re-sharing it today because my prayers were answered and I brought my grandson home to our family.
After a painful year of not being able to see him I now have custody and his mother has a chance with him.
There is a lot to overcome, but I have faith the path will be a short one.

Wow!  It's been a while since I posted in here.  I've had a lot going on around my house 
and getting scrappy was put aside until now.
Creating pages for two designers can get kinda hetic if you don't keep a calendar, lol, I don't.
I guess I need to put that on my to-do-list.

Here are some recent pages I was able squeeze in the last few days.

The First Day of School

Today I took my little guy back to school as a 1st grader.  He was a little nervous but very excited to see his friends.  He was so handsome and grown up.  I couldn't wait to get his "first day" picture and make a page.
I created this page using "Learning Curve" by Colie's Corner. 
For safety reasons some journaling has been left blank

You can find this an Colie's other kits at Gotta Pixel and Ginger Scraps

God's Beauty

Yesterday was a great day at our house.  While I was out (getting eggs for the kids to make dessert for after dinner) this was the sky above my local area.  I had to stop my car and tear out my phone to capture this beauty. 

 I created this page using September Morning by Tami Miller Designs
 available at Gotta Pixel and Scrapbook Bytes.
