Son's Homemade Smashbook

As much as I love to Smash I think I enjoy creating my own Smashbooks out of Notebooks or Books even more. It adds a unquieness to the book that I love and little more creative freedom.

I thought is was important that in a book dedicated to my son that his name get its own page.
Nasser has one of the most special names. His Dad and I want to really make it strong and reprisent his  Heritage.

URIAS is his Hebrew Name his family are descendants from Ethiopian (black) Jews.
Nasser is Arabic to represent the union between his Grandparents as his Grandfather is Muslim.
The love of his grandparents goes beyond religion and they found a way to find peace in there love, something Muslims and Jews have been working on for thousands of years.

Recollection Alpha Stickers, Washi Tape, Brad
Magic Scraps Bits
Ranker Tim Holtz for the black dots.

There is a page before this I made of his Dad (now deceased) holding him. It was at the hospital when he was born. 

This is me and his big sister holding him when he came home. He was such a love bug! 
Blue Hearts are Provo Craft
Sweet Dreams Label is Making Memories
Moon n Stars is 
His first professional photo! They set an appointment for these before you leave those hospital. I always thought they did them there, but nope they come to your house. It was kind of trick to get this shot.
Nasser is almost 12 now and I keep that very special bear in a keepsake box!
Bear Pins, Bib n Bottle are from Jolee's
Papers are old single sheets from.
So this is what I got done yesterday. I added paint on the next page, and had to wait for it to dry.
Note to self, no paint until you are ready to move that project aside. LOL I had alot of mojo flowing then i had to stop to wait for paint to dry and then I never got back into te craft room. :P

An other SOG Card :)

I made this Thank You Card for a friend who gave me a book.
I finally feel like I am getting somewhere again with my coloring.
I have learned that once you put the marker down for a while, you cant just pic it up and be at the same level. LOL So no putting it down lol.

This is a Digi Stamp - Kimono Kaylee from Some Odd Girls
I used a piece of packaging from some bling I got behind her as a mat. 
Flowers & Cardstock were part of a card kit I had laying around that said Heidi Swapp but I do not think it is.
