Scraps [11]

This is a double page layout for my trip to Florida.
I made the trip two winters ago.
Now you know how far behind I am on my scrapbook!

I took a bunch of pictures, but when I laid them all out the photos felt random, and I didn't know what to do with them.

I used the layout, paper, and add-ons to bring in together and I really love how it turned out.

I also think that the pictures really told the whole story, so I didn't journal much on these pages.
This was a layout that I wasn't convinced would work as I was making it.
When I finished I was definitely, pleasantly surprised.

This was definitely the first cluster layout I did, all those you see from here on out (or before for some reason) all stemmed from this first idea.
I kinda love it!

Have a great Friday!
Eat leftovers and enjoy family.

Monday Morning Card #57

Sometimes a simple flower says it all.

Other times you need a few words to go with it.
This card offers both!

Scraps [10]

Sometimes I have only one picture to remember an event.
It's this, the forgetful camera women, that makes me love to scrap.
I can collect a picture, artifacts, and a blurb about what went down.
That way I can remember the event forever.

I guess what I'm really saying is that, no matter how much I love sharing my pages with others,
the memories will always be mine.
I'm the reason I make scrapbooks.
Is that selfish or what!
Maybe my memories will spark a memory of your own.
Have a great weekend.

Monday Morning Card #56

Thanks for rainbows and unicorns.

For bright days and flowers.
And thanks for the cold days and snow to remind us how lucky we are.

Scraps [9]

Last summer, that's 2012 I'm talking about, mom made a great drink.
I've now come to believe that ever summer has it's drink.
It doesn't have to be the one I drank the most of (gin and tonics every time!).
Instead it's the one that we tried that one time, and it's got a great story to go with it!

This gin martini was that drink in 2012.
So much so it got its own scrapbook page.
(2013 was the peach margarita we bought a case of peaches for.)

Have a great weekend.
Maybe even enjoy your summer drink again-just for fun!

This one is fun.
Classic and elegant with a dash of vintage in the paint speckled button.

Scraps [8]

Some birthdays need to be documented.
21 is one of the, but how do you talk about it?

I decided you don't.
Just let the pictures tell the story.

I like to think that when people look through the scrapbook I'll be there to tell the stories!

Monday Morning Card #54

Let's start November with some love.
Some heart.

Breathe in.
Breathe out.
Feel your heart, how strong it is.
Time moves, hearts beat, life goes on.
All will work out in the end.
