Happy Happy Day! (Scrapping a last day of school field trip!)

Scrapping a fun end of school memory! I can't believe my baby is going to be a high schooler next year!

The Path Less Traveled (Pixels & Co. Dollar Days)

I snapped this photo the other day on a walk around a local lake. I'm glad I had my iPhone with me! It was just too pretty to pass by.

FYI, the Wisdom Stamps and Heartsy Papers are all part of this month's Dollar Days Specials!

Celebrating spring with an herb garden

My daughter enjoyed having a potted herb garden summer before last. Then last summer we were gone for a couple weeks early in the summer so we never got around to planting one. We definitely missed it! So, this summer my husband found some plans from a This Old House magazine and the two of them built a raised garden this summer. She's loving it! So am I!

Bring on the Party | A Birthday Celebration at Osaka Hibachi Grill

I used Sabrina's Creations (at Pixels and Company's) Hooray kit.

Celebrating Easter | Everyday Flair kit by Creashens

It's Saturday night and I'm sitting here scrapping and watching TV with my son. One-on-one time with the teenage kid ... that's a good thing!

Now for scrappy talk ... For these pages I used Everyday Flair kit by creashens and the kraft title was created with a Bebas font using Essential Styles by Mommyish (a Dollar Day Special at Pixels & Co. during the month of July) at Pixels and Company. I'm really loving (and using a lot!) this styles set. Seriously ... great stuff!





Digi Project Life | Week 27

This week's Project Life pages were fun to create because besides all the everyday family moments I love to document, I also got to include memories of being at the resort (and at the lake) over the 4th of July.

FYI ... Mye De Leon and Just Jaimee released a bright and cheerful kit today called "Beat the Heat". It was perfect for this week's Project Life pages!

Project Life | Week 26 (Check out Pixels & Co.'s Dollar Days Specials!)

Have I mentioned that I love P&Co's Dollar Days? I'm a huge fan of Scotty Girl Designs' This Year 2014 collections for my Project Life pages. If you want to check 'em out, a few of the parts of this collection are available for $1 this month!

For these pages I used: This Year 2014 Vacation collection by Scotty Girl Designs (including alphabets, brushes, elements, journal cards, square journal cards, labels, papers, word art, add on papers, veneer bits and flairs). The brushes and journal cards are available now on the Dollar Days special and the add on papers, veneer bits and flairs will be coming soon as Dollar Day specials!


I also used Mommyish's Essential Styles (I used the wire & epoxy styles) which are also only $1 this month. (I'm starting to use styles on my pages a lot more these days! They're pretty awesome ... I wish I'd have known about them years ago!)

The silly things teenagers say ...

I've been wanting to scrap a silly page like this for a long time. It was a lot of fun to put all these silly little random things that my son says (and that amuse me) down on a page so now I know that I really will remember them! Documenting these random things is why I scrap!

Mother's Day

I always journal on my pages. It's important to me to get my stories down in words as well as photos as much as possible. (OK, occasionally I don't journal, but not often.) This was an exception ... to the opposite extreme. While I almost alway journal my pages I seldom journal quite this much. This time I had a story I really wanted to tell (and remember) so I started with the story and then worked the page from there. I'm happy with it. I may have to do this more often!

How about you? Do you journal on your pages? Never? Occasionally? Always? We've all got our own style that works for us. Good thing there's no right or wrong!
