Scrapbook Profile

Our caseworker for our adoption asked us to do a profile online, which we have done, it will be posted to the agency's website as soon as we are approved. In addition though he asked us to do a scrapbook profile. When they meet with birth families they don't always have a computer to show them our online profile, so the scrapbook profiles are to tell them a little about us. So I created these pages for our profile. The scrapbook profiles are 2 pages all about us, just kind of a teaser if you will. I was just waiting on the photos from Snapfish to add to it. I got those on Thursday so I was able to finish the pages. I'm not a major scrapbooker, although I am trying to get into it more. So these aren't the best pages, but I was still happy with them.

I used the Bali Breeze DP from SU (I love this paper, I wish I had more, I'm running out.) I paired it with Tempting Turqouise and Certainly Celery. The Our Family is printed on Whisper White cardstock with my computer printer. I used my crafter's tool kit to paper pierce the pages and then hand stitched them. They took quite sometime, almost 8 hours total, but they were well worth the effort.
A detail shot of the stitching:
Tomorrow I will post some of my latest photography shots from the recent SCS photography challenges.

Beautiful pages! I'm so excited for your adoption - it's getting close! Your hand stitching is amazing! (Why haven't I ever done that????)
