How do you scrapbook a catfish? Sort of sounds like the title of a Dr. Suess book gone very wrong, doesn’t it? You can scrap it on a hook, you can scrap it in a book…
Maybe we should just take pictures of the catch, and scrapbook those instead! Since our children are “grown” (you notice the quotation marks – our sons are 21 and 18 years old, technically grown, but still lots of growing up to do in this mom’s opinion!), my husband and I get to spend a lot more time alone together than we did when the boys were younger. These pictures were taken on a day that he and I went to lake – he to fish, and I to read.
(Let me back up just a little. My father-in-law passed away in January of 2013, and this was the first time my husband had gone fishing since his dad’s passing.)
So, here’s how it went:
As my hubby cast his line into the water for the first time, he said quietly, “This is for you, Dad.”
Almost immediately, he had a bite! So, I put down my book & took a picture as he reeled it in.
And that’s pretty much how the afternoon went. I’d sit down and start reading, he’d cast, he’d get a bite, I’d get up and take a picture. I didn’t get much reading done, but he did catch a lot of fish! All in all, a very good day!
If you have fishy pictures to scrapbook and you’d like to recreate this look, I used paper from Etcetera Designer Series Paper for the background (the black border around the pic is my kitchen table), Night of Navy to mat the pictures, Real Red and Very Vanilla for the letters (cut out on my electronic cutter), and Sahara Sand for the catfish (also cut out on my electronic cutter).
