Love to Scrap?

Anyone who knows me at all, knows that I am not a crafty person. Like to cook, read, write, play all the musical instruments, pretty much all around crazy- but not crafty in the least.

That being said- I greatly admire people who are. Especially on my mind tonight, is one of my faithful blog followers, Becky. Becky is all about scrapbooking and making beautiful cards and blogs about it at Love to Scrap.

Anyway, all of this to say- the most beautiful package arrived for Addison in the mail yesterday. A creation made by Becky taken from pictures that she got off of this blog.

I apologize that my measly pictures can't do justice to her creativity and scrapbooking style.

She left blank spots for me to fill in info about the picture or dates or what not, and sent a special pen to use- I'm a little afraid to write on it!

She took such a variety of pictures and surrounded them by beautiful papers, lettering and accessories.

The little brown envelop is for me to put letters to Addison in. love it! Also, the purple page on the left I think is my favorite!

The picture on the right says "Let's Fly" (-:



Needless to say, I am a bit speechless by this gesture. How amazing is this scrapbook! I would never in a million years be able to do this- but Becky took it upon herself to make sure that Addison had her own mini album. This is totally challenging me to organize my iPhoto full of thousands of pictures and perhaps do a bit more with them...hmmmmm.

Thank you so much, Becky! I am going to keep this out on a coffee table so that everyone that comes over can get a peek at Chubbs' mini album! (since my photographing ability totally takes away from the overall effect)

If you get the chance, check out her blog and see some of the other creative things that she is working on...truly inspiring!
