The makings of a summer

Howdy everyone!!!  Have you missed me?  I sure have missed each and every one of you!!!  I promised in the last post that I would be back with some scrapbook pages I made for the baseball player that stayed with us this summer.  So here I am for that :)

If you follow my blog and have seen pages of my daughter - you know I put a sticky note over her face....I haven't done that here (except the pages that have her in them)......Brooks is a 21 year old, 6 foot 4 inch, extremely well built....so I don't think anyone will try to kid nap him from the web.......my little girl, another story.....I know I am strange about the Internet and pictures.....but I can't help myself.......

The entire album used the same supplies - crumb cake, garden green, basic black and very vanilla card stock.  I also used some retired Stampin' Up! sets to create the designer series papers and the baseball accents.  Everything in the book is Stampin' Up!, I believe, so if you have any questions....just ask.  :)

Here is the title page:



Brooks encompasses the love of baseball and determination.  I sure hope this scrapbook will bring back fond memories of his stay with us for life.

Here is a close up of the date strip - I created it with the computer, as well as all of the journaling, using typewriter font.



Here are the second two pages, from the home opener -




More to follow in later days - I would love to know what you think of these pages......... Happy Stampin'!

these are terrific pages, and some great ideas, my husband starts baseball this coming summer (in Australia), so I can't wait to start his pages.
