My Inner Girlie Girl






Cliff says the cover has a tutu on it...only a guy right?
I admit it....I am a girlie girl....maybe not the "fluff and ruffles" type of girlie girl but I love pretty things....elegant things....if I were to discribe my scrapping style I would say it was more elegant and pretty than fun and cutsie....now part of this is due to the fact that I have older children....it's difficult to scrap teenage and 20something boys with lots of cutsie pattern paper. But over all I have more of a grown up scrap style. (for lack of a better term) So when I found out that Teresa Collins was coming to Scrapbook Dasies in Long Beach to teach a class I thought awesome...I love her grown up, elegant style of scrapbooking....I will sign up to take her class....then I found out the class would be with her beautiful new "Posh" line...and I thought what am I going to do with a pink and black....totally girlie girl project? I could have dug around and found lots of photos of my sister and me....or maybe done some of me with my girlfriends but I decided....NO I would make it work...who says you can't scrap boys with pink and black...now mind you my boys were slightly less than thrilled when I brought my projet home but I tried to include Holly and Me enough so that there was some female presence in most of the photos...I don't have to please everyone right? I had a great time and I learned some new techniques so it's all good right? So here is my totally girlie book with my awesome and amazing family in it.




This is a terrific way to add additional photos to your project
Love this photo of Jeremy looking at Holly
Another one of my fav's of Jason taken at the Costco Christmas Party

This is one of my favorite photos of my boys

Love this interactive page...lift up the clocks to view more photos
This has to be one of my very favorite photos of Cliff from Yellowstone
Love how this photo captures Jason's fun personality

  2. I love it, love it, love it! When I look at it, I see a beautiful family! I love all the photos! It's not until I look again that I notice that it is blingy and more feminine. It totally WORKS! I think you did a GREAT job!!

  3. Such a gorgeous, fun mini album! I just adore the classy products that are made by Teresa Collins... How very lucky that you not only got to meet her but also was able to have her as a Teacher...... She'd be proud of the amazing album that you created! Thanks for posting so that those of us across the country can also enjoy it!
