~Making Memories~

Here is my absolute favorite portrait of M. It is, of course, on her First Communion day back in April. We got the the church really early that day. I mean REALLY early, so we had plenty of time to do some portraits. In this one, she is kneeling on the altar and the light is shining down from the skylight above.

The paper is Making Memories and the vine is Prima. I adhered it to the layout with giant stitches and then I wound the ends of the vine around a paintbrush to make them look "vine-ier." The font is Storybook, cut with my Cricut, LOVE this font! I inked the little Tim Holtz "Trust" tag and added "in God." M cherishes that part. The calendar is from Jenni Bowlin, I just love circling the date.

Now, guess where that green backing strip came from. The trash! Yep, that is part of the packaging that the Prima vine came in. Too beautiful to throw away. I guess you can call that "real scrapbooking."
