Inside the Scrapbooks

Now that I have rested my wearly bones, here are the remaining pics of my scrappin marathon!

Here is a closeup of the poem on the last page. My older daughter always ends her books with a closing poem and I "stole" the idea from her. It makes a nice finish to an album.

And one more closeup. This layout tells an extremely condensed version of baby Naomi's brief life. Because some of the family members have small children I didn't want some of the pictures visible when you first open the page. They are very heart wrenching images of her final hours with us. I decided to use our CTMH flip flaps and create a mini-book. I covered the top with an image I duplicated using one of Michelle Zindorf''s cards and techniques. I love following her work and re-creating it for my own use.

And that concludes your tour of my 60 pages in 6 days marathon! Please put your seat backs and tray tables in their fully upright and locked position! LOL.


  1. WOWZERS!!!! You outdid yourself! I'm sure the family will LOVE them!

  2. Amazing! They are beautiful and I am sure your gifts will be treasured!

  3. Wow! I am stunned. The attention to detail in this much work is staggering. These are so obviously not slapped together. Beautiful work!

  4. Naomi's story is amazing. Thank you for sharing your work and her life with the rest of us.

  5. This is amazing - can you email me the layouts? cutting instructions is a better term. any help would be great! thanks! You are amazing! Theresa
