Rose Blossom Blog Hop

MId-November already?  Really!
That means time for another Rose Blossom Blog Hop.
This time we are highlighting the
Fundamentals line in the Enchantment Collection.
I thought this cardstock would be perfect for scrapping my
2015-16 school photo.

I know it's kind of cheesy but about 10 years ago I decided I might as well scrap the school photos that were piling up in my cabinet.  So I have two volumes of 8 x 8 albums that have only my school pics.
What other profession provides you with a professional photo every year, lol?
The fun part is going through and seeing the different glasses and hairstyles.
This layout was mounted on a sheet of the Eggplant Cardstock.
All the colored stickers are from the
The clip and wooden arrow are from the Fundamentals Assortments.
The glitter stars came from there as well.
The die cut mat was created with the Artistry Cartridge.
I just cut it in two pieces to "stretch" it out.
Pretty basic but I think that using the Simply Fundamentals Workshop helped me
to create some simpler layouts which means more photos scrapped in less time, yay!
Now, let's see what wonderful layout(s)
has to share at the Tater Patch!
I know she will rock this blog hop challenge.

Love this Lynn and the idea that there's a book all bout YOU! I be it is fun looking at hair and fashion over the years. Totally agree with you on how Fundamentals has a way to simplify scrapbooking when we need to get more done. Thanks for inspiring us all once again! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

What a great album idea and page. Love the angles and the way you "stretched" the background cricut element! It looks great and I bet you're a fantastic art teacher!!!

Shelly Nemitz said...

This is so much fun. I love that you scrapbook all of these photos. It's not cheesy at all. My son just started teaching and this would be a really fun thing to do for him each year (last year he gave me the whole pack of photos since he doesn't know what to do with them). It's the perfect kind of album to use fundamentals for.

I love that you chose to scrap a school pic! Mine are all put away in a drawer....all 20 years. The alphabet background is just perfect! You did a beautiful job! I agree with Shelly, perfect kind of album to use fundamentals for!

Kristine Porter said...

Oooh! I love this!! I have so many school pictures just collecting in the drawer-- I love that you did this! Lovely picture of you, too! Lovely!

Morgan Vogt said...

Aww - I love this photo of you! What a fun layout - that background mat is really cool and I love that you did it an an angle. Too cute!

Mary Newman said...

What a great idea to have an album of just your own school pictures, and this picture of you is so nice Lynn. Love how you laid out your background and photo at an angle. I always think everything needs to be so centered. You've convinced me to try something different. Love the cricut cut..perfect for this page. Beautiful work Lynn.

I love that you scrap your school photos from each year, Lynn! Must be so fun to look through! You look amazing, by the way! And so does this page! Love the subtle background stamping and love the fun jaunty angle of the photo and paper strip. And that die cut alphabet panel is so, so cool!

Kim Hill said...

I love this photo! You may be the only person who looks fabulous in your school pictures! 😉 This is a beautiful page. Love the idea of "stretching" the background to fit. I'll be using that technique in the future! Beautiful and inspiring as always!

I think it's wonderful that you scrap your photos each year!! Being a teacher is a big part of who you are, and I think the photos (and smiles) tell a great story! I love your smile in this photo!
