Scrapbook pages

It has been forever since I did any scrapbooking for my kids' albums. My daughter's scrapbook is suffering from second-child syndrome compared to the bursting-at-the-seams two full albums I did for my son! So, I worked on a few pages for Kennedy's album tonight using some photos from the enormous pile waiting to be scrapped from the last two years of her little life!

The first page I made following a sketch from the Basic Grey July newsletter and I used Basic Grey's Lemonade paper collection.

The second one uses Basic Grey again, Junebug papers. I sewed a zig-zag stitch along the edges of the papers. Both pages use Bazzill cardstock, Walnut Stain Distress Ink and sponge.

Thanks for looking!
