No Kids Required...

I know that many of us have children as the main focus of our scrapbooking. Sure, it is easy to understand why. We want to remember every special moment of their lighting fast childhood. However, there are so many aspects to life that we should all take time to document. In preparation for my open house celebration, I created a layout showcasing a few of my favorite photos from my recent photography class. It was a blast to create and I just LOVE the new Boom-Di-Ada papers.I hope that you can see in the photo that I was able to create a shadow by stamping Barn Red and then adhering my cut out letters using the Boutique stamp set. I also, wrote part of the title in my own hand writing, something I don't know if I have ever done previously.
Normally, I am guilty of trying to use my absolute best writing when journaling (or I fall back on computer journaling). After seeing a fellow Consultants pages and noticing that they had such a great personal feel to them due to her wonderfully imperfect handwriting, I took a stab at simply just writing quickly. I worried that I would destroy my layout (I wrote after everything was already attached), but the pressure was a good thing and I am happy with the results.


  1. Beautiful page and pics - I really love that paper pack and love how you did the little pieces in the corners. TFS!

  2. Thank you! I'd love to say that this was my own creativity, but I am just as happy to admit that these are layouts found in Close To My Heart Reflections book. :)

  3. This is so beautiful! I saw your post on the CTMH BBs and thought I'd leave so love :) Great idea to use non-kid pics... It just might be therapeutic for me to scrap something other than my!
