Nana's Blessings

Several years ago I was in a page kit swap. I can't even remember what the theme of the swap was but of course I still have probably 75% of those kits still to this day. I decided that it was time to use at least ONE of those kits and this page is the result.

Usually I have my photos and then I pick out paper and embellishments to go along with the photos. This time I started with the kit and went from there. I had two entirely different photos to start with but when I was almost ready to adhere them I changed my mind and remembered I had recent photos (from this week) and thought...why not? I had also picked a different background paper but it wasn't working so, I dug once more into my baby boy stash and I like how this one works much better. Then sitting in a basket were those "skittles" (which are clear plastic disks that scrappers are using on their pages) that someone donated at a crop last summer and the perfect color for this page,

I stamped and wrote on the tags, did some journaling and as quick as that it was done.
I have to say it is one of my favorite pages with two of my favorite subjects!
