Who Are These People and Why Are They In Mom’s Scrapbook?

I have often said I am going to make a scrapbook entitled:
“Who Are These People &
 What Are They Doing in Mom’s Scrapbook?”
And it has begun.
Dream Pop Paper Pack has given me a lot of inspiration to DREAM of special scrapbooking projects. I think that happens when a paper pack is available for a limited time, don’t you?
Well, in this dreaming, this project and these people POPPED in my thoughts.
May I introduce what may become one of my favorite scrapbooks….
“Who Are These People &
 What Are They Doing in Mom’s Scrapbook?”
Start with a bunch of random photos of people who have been in your life – which instantly makes them special to your story.
Then use the leftover grid piece from cutting for FUNN Clubb / PJ FUNN Party. 
This one was from CTMH’s Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge, page 63 at 3.25″.
Adhere ONLY the top bar of the Cricut leftover frame.
When you add inserts – use Bonding Memories Glue to the base. You will be able to scooch your photo to the right spot. When I used double sided tape it was much more difficult.
I trimmed the photos to fit the opening or a wee bit smaller.
The smaller photos were matted to add color, interest and pizazz.

Don’t be in a hurry to glue your grid. You will probably do better than I because I kept adding and pulling, pulling and adding. 
See why I didn’t want you to adhere the entire grid? You can lift it up for easy placement.
Later, you can add some Bonding Memories Glue to a small piece of paper and slide it under the grid to add sticky or the Bonding Memories Pen is great-er-oo, too.

Eventually, I got the look I wanted.
Next to explain who these people are and why they are in my scrapbook!
Each photo has a number and name on it (see the strip of paper)?
Other FUNN things..
The flowers are made by adhering strips of Dream Pop paper on a piece of copy paper and then punched.
The glitter brads were a FUNN find in my drawer. Viva la supplies on hand!
Having some Houndstooth Alphabet in my stash was mighty handy.
A little Slate Washi Tape always adds a touch of FUNN.
I love how Close To My Heart works together to make my life cuter and more FUNN!
