Bilo Celebrates Eighty!


Woah. A layout! I have been getting the scrapbooking bug lately, and then I signed up for Kelly Purkey’s Sketchbook class, now mind you, I am 3 weeks behind, but I am trying! The sketches are so fun and the samples are amazing! So inspiring! This is my sample for sketch #1. This is when we celebrated my Grandfather’s (I call him Bilo) 80th birthday. He had so much fun blowing out the candles!


I absolutely LOVE journaling with Harold’s ABCs. It is so easy! And there is just something therapeutic about lining up the letters. Let me know if you have journaled on a layout with Harold’s ABCs. I would love to see it! I stamped here with dye ink because I wanted the texture of the paper to show through. I think it looks so cool!


I love the look of pleated paper. Since I am not the best with a sewing machine (read: I’ve almost sewn through my hand on more than one occasion), I actually put adhesive down first to pleat the paper and the stitching was just for show. The clouds are from Buzz and Bloom and I believe that almost all of this page is from a Studio Calico kit, I just can’t remember which one! But, oh, how I love SC!
