As I've mentioned before, I'm not a scrapbooker. I should be, I have more than enough photos, but I'm just not. However, I have this lovely new Silhouette machine sitting here beside me at the computer and I figured it was about time I dusted it off and tried it out again.
I've made a few projects with it but I think I started out a little beyond my skill level so I got frustrated pretty quickly. Last weekend I decided to try just a nice simple layout to see if I could work my way up instead of reaching for the stars first thing.
(I was inspired by something I saw on another blog. Unfortunately, I can't find the link so I can't credit the original source.)
My sister and her husband have been working really hard all summer so they've missed out on a few of the adventures we've taken their kids on. I thought this would be a nice gift for her to see what they've been up to.
I know browns and golds are more fall than summer but this fits in with the decor in her home. I thought my chances of having it displayed would be better if I made something that fit in instead of something that stood out like a sore thumb.
Anyway, that's my Show and Tell for today. I like how it turned out and it wasn't hard to do at all. I just may become a scrapbooker one of these days after all~
