Welcome to the Frosty Festivities Blog Hop! Maybe you came over here from Mel's blog? Or maybe you're a regular visitor? In either case, I encourage you to check out the blogs in today's blog hop. There's sure to be lots of great ideas and inspiration. The hop begins and ends at Jennifer's Jumbles (click here). Plus, check out the announcement at the end of today's post for information on how to win a great prize!Today I want to share with you some thoughts on making the final page in a scrapbook album. Since I scrap my family pictures chronologically, my final page always follows my Christmas pages. I used to use an enlargement of a family portrait or an assortment of family photos for my final page, but last year, I embraced the joy of the holiday by featuring some of my favorite seasonal photos.
I usually use a "special" piece of patterned paper for my final pages. It's an opportunity to really show it off. For the top page, I used Club Scrap ornaments paper and added red jewel bling. The paper had a perfect pattern already on it. For the second page, I started with a fairly basic wintery blue piece of paper and added almost an entire pack of dimensional snowflake stickers to create the pattern I wanted because, try as I might, I could not find a patterned paper which "fit" these photographs.
Even if you don't make chronological albums, I still think the final page requires some thought. In my travel albums, for instance, I take a different approach (some favorite memories, a favorite enlargement, our itinerary documents, etc.) I'd love to hear what you do for you "final page."
