Pumpkins Scrapbook Page Video

School has already started monopolizing my time, so this video has taken a few extra days to complete. Hope you like it.

Play Date

We recently had a delightful visit from our cousin, Mary Ann, her mother Ann, and grandchild Zoe. We met at my mother, Donna's house. My sister, Rheta brought her grandson, my great nephew to meet Zoe. The kids had a great time getting to know each other and we enjoyed a very pleasant visit. 
My mother and sister are very enthusiastic bird feeders. The grandchildren were treated to a lesson in spreading cracked corn in the back yard for the birds and squirrels. 
Inside, the kids played with cars, talking books, and posed a lot for pictures. 

And I had fun scrapping the whole thing later.

Pumpkins Scrapbook Page

I spent the better part of yesterday making a video of two duplicate scrapbook pages, one for my sister and one for my niece. This was the first time I've made a craft video in a while and I was very excited about the project. I'm trying to make a scrapbook each for them of my great nephew, Nick, and this was a cute layout. This afternoon, I'm putting the segments together, splicing, cutting, making notes. The quality of the video is less than I had expected, but I'm not doing it over. I cut it down to 32 minutes which will probably mean making three installments to get it on this site. I'm including two snapshots of the finished project that I took with my camera, so at least you'll get a clear closeup of the finished project. I'll still post the video when it's finished because I feel it was clear enough to get the ideas across. I need to check the settings on the video camera, or maybe next time shoot downstairs where there's more light. Like I said before, it's been a long time, and I do remember making a lot of the craft videos at the downstairs kitchen table rather than in my workspace. I hope you enjoy the film and please send comments.
