Hello! This is Lori Sjogren from The Singing Shell blog - stump-free and happy I got over a crafting bump in the road.
I was stumped for this month's project so I asked husband, "What should I do?"
He answered, "Do something showing off our boys."
Easier said than done. Do you ever feel intimidated to even try a new crafty endeavour? That's how I feel about scrapbooking. The funny thing is I started out a scrapbooker. But I set out to do just as my husband suggested and picked out one off our favorite pictures to scrapbook. That's all the inspiration I needed.
I used an image from A Child's Year but it wasn't right because I had two boys.
So I did what I learned how to do from you lovely ladies in the Cricut board - I altered it. :)
One of the most difficult things for me is lining up the letters - even in cardmaking. So now I use a level with a laser. I forget which blog I got the idea from but it is great! I tried to take pictures of it but they are not so great. I would love to hear how others make sure their letters are straight. How you keep your letters from being crooked?

Have a great day everyone!
