These are my sister, Keely's kids... yes, ALL 7 OF THEM! Aren't they adorable?! I'm so behind with my albums that the baby (who was 3 months old in the picture) is now 3 YEARS OLD!
The scrappin' kit I used is called Crew Kids-Boy (retired)... which is ironic, considering that there's only one boy out of the whole bunch... yes, Sam is a lucky guy to have 6 sisters, don't you think? :)
Here's a close-up of the title...
Do you recognize the alphabet set I used? It's a sneak peek from the not-yet-released 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog called Jumble Alphabet. Check out the flyer to see all of the 52 letters (2 of each). It's available only during May for you to order (115199/$35.16) at 20% off! After that, you'll have to wait until the new catalog is released on July 1 and pay full price. In case you were wondering, I used a couple other alphabet sets on this layout: Calendar Alphabet & Short Order Numbers.
I sort of got lucky with the wave along both pages. I started off with two pieces of 12x12 Wild Wasabi (retired) card stock and positioned the pictures how I thought they looked best on the pages. Then I took the lined paper and thought "Hey, wouldn't it be nice if I could use this one piece on both pages?" The way the pictures were, it didn't take much for that to work. I drew a light pencil line and cut it out. Then the fun began! I punched circles and "randomly" placed them so that no 2 touching were the same... size/color/etc. After I was happy with the "random" look, I used Tombo Mono Multi adhesive to adhered them to just the lined paper. The pictures are tucked behind the wave, so I attached those in place before the I glued down the wavy layer.
Hope this inspires you to get working on your albums... it is National Scrapbook Month, afterall!
Happy Stampin & Scrappin! :)
