Scrap Happy: Week 14

I made this page from a picture I took of my son last week. I used some drop shadow effects and also blurred the image around the focal point - which was the boy on the scooter. I like it fairly well - but maybe other scrapbookers understand this feeling - I am not quite satisfied. However, the more I tweak it, the less I like it - so I've decided to leave it alone.
I also used too many fonts - but nothing quite gave it the look I wanted. I didn't have my own computer with all of my own favorite fonts on it - so that was part of the problem. And in case you didn't know - if you want to view someone's picture or scrapbook pages, you can click on the image to enlarge it! Makes reading the small journaling much easier.
I can't wait to see the pages you're making! Happy Scrappin'!


  1. I gave you the schmooze award on my blog, come check it out!

    BTW Do you know what happened to Fatty? Blog gone and everything.

  2. Jewls - you didn't ask for any input, but I'm putting my two cents in anyway. I love everything about this page except the font you used to journal. I'm not sure what I would have put in its place, but there you have it...

    I figured out who the Tampa people are. My girlfriend's (in OH) mom's (from NM) friend. Not some crazy psychopath. Maybe I am the crazy psychopath.

    Have a good evening. I'm going to try to go to bed early tonight. George will be home tomorrow so hopefully the house will feel just a little less empty.

  3. Fatty's blog is gone- my heart just dropped! I thought she was taking a break and was thinking of going over and checking in.

    Very cute page. I love the caption.


Awaiting your words......
