Sprinkles V28 by Valorie Wibbens
Herbology by Valorie Wibbens
I scrapped this last weekend but ran out of time to write up a little blog post about it. Although last week was filled with lots of normal activities and moments for our family, they always add up to so many memories. Even just the daily tasks can be memorable: vacuuming, doing school, time with friends, reading books, etc... I love that these pages help me reflect on the simple things that bring joy and meaning to my life.

I'm still loving this style for our family album. I don't have to pick out a background paper, which I'm loving since that always took me the longest to find just the right one. The only thing I have a hard time with is going through all of my digital stamps and finding the perfect one. Any ideas on how to organize my stamps to make this easier? I also love how bright and clear my photos are looking on my papers with the white background...even just phone photos.

It's GSO Time!

Happy February!!  Already one month down in the new decade and what a month it was!  I absolutely loved MOC. The gallery was just chocked full of goodness and I had so much fun perusing it.  You won’t believe the layouts I’ve seen this month, and I’m super excited to share a few of them with you right now.

First, let’s take a look at this one by Chippi

I’m a sucker for layouts with QR codes and even more so for layouts with journaling.  Chippi put both in one layout so obviously I’m drawn to it!  I think her story is hysterical.  Don’t kids ALWAYS go for the simple things (like boxes and in this case the hand sprayer) more than the actual present??  I love how she captured the moment of this special day.

Speaking of journaling, you have to read sberkan’s story on her page.

Haven’t we all been there with travel delays and airline troubles?  I love that she took the time to capture the story as well as the memory.  I’m also in awe of all the photos she put on her page and yet the page is super clean and eye catching!

I also wanted to show you this layout by klee70310.

I love the artsy feel of her page and the sepia treatment on her photo is just perfect!  I also am amazed at klee70310’s eye for detail when she split her stamp into two parts where it overlapped the paper matting.  By doing this, she gave her page a very realistic feel.  You’d never guess this was a digital page!

And look at this layout by momtojackia.

The way she blended her frames is simply remarkable!  Her title work is eye catching and her journaling is so heartwarming.  This is just a “feel good” page for me in so many ways!!

Lastly, I couldn’t help but show off this page by IntenseMagic.

I’m always so sad when women don’t take pictures of themselves because they never seem to like their own faces.  Because of that, I’m so happy that IntenseMagic participated in the selfie challenge during MOC and even better, scrapped it.  Her family will be so grateful for this preservation of HER.  I wish we would take as many pictures of US as we do our families, pets, vacations, etc.  Family and friends want to see us as much as we want to see them.  Thank you IntenseMagic for being such a great example, and I’m so glad you like this picture.  I love it!!

Well that’s it for this blog post.  I’ll be back in March with some more eye candy to share with y’all!

Monthly Blog Challenge - January 2020

Welcome to the February Blog Challenge!

I don't know what it's been like in your part of the world but my January 2020 flew by in what seemed like a blink of my eye.  Despite what seemed like mere moments, I managed to fit in some time to scrap.  This month's template was one of those pages and I rather like how it turned out.  Quite possibly, one of the reasons I like it so much is that I had the ability to celebrate both my children and their friend but one of my closest friends as well.  Here's to you celebrating those who bring you joy in this new decade.  

The template I used and the one you may download for FREE!
