More Mason Pages

Well I had quite a break from Scrapbooking and now it is time to get some stuff done. It has been fun to be able to sit down and get some more pages done. I have still been debating back and forth wether or not to print separate pages, do a shutterfly book, and what sizes to do. I saw that Leslie did her printing at Costco. They offer awesome prices so I printed out some test pages. One was a 12x12 and 2 were 8x8. I was pretty impressed. Sure it might not be quite as pretty as a shutterfly page but I think it looks great especially considering that it costs 50% less! I have also decided that 8x8 is good enough for me. That size is actually pretty close to what I see on my screen when I am creating the page so I can have a pretty good idea of how big type will be and such.

I LOVED doing this page. Mason has really slimmed down in the past year so it was great to reminisce about those chubby cheeks! I just want to reach out and pinch 'em!

The hardest part about this page was choosing the picture to go with it...there were so many that looked so cute with it!

LOVE THEM ALL! You are so good... Can I hire you to do mine???

One thing though... You put "has really SLIMED down" not slimmed down on the first page! Or maybe you meant slime!!!

Love ya!!!

Problem fixed...thanks! I mean "slimed" would also be appropriate considering the allergies that he has had but not what I was going for in this instance.

Love ya back!

I know you posted these while ago, but I just saw them and I think they are really cute. I especially like Mason's 1 year page. You are so creative! And Costco pages do look really nice, especially for the price!
