Today I am sharing a favorite layout in the most recent Creating Keepsakes Feb 2011 issue. It is a favorite because this was an ordinary day, and these were not-so-good photos (low light), but together they represent who I am as a scrapbooker: photos and journaling. My memories of that day and those moments are solidified with these photos and my own words. Best of all, I didn't have to keep her masterpiece drawing of Daddy, because I know I will always have it on "film." :)
Having the editors appreciate a project that perhaps isn't any "design-team-worthy" but is full of meaning to me makes this publication that much more precious.
Here's a bit about myself and my scrapping. I can always tell when I am delighted with a project, I pull out my 7Gypsies rubbings and start to add to the page here and there, in a completely unplanned and un-designed fashion. I'm in a good mood and I'm ready to part with some of my most treasured and beloved rubbings... rub a little here, rub a little there, lol, yep, that's me :) And you can see the rubbings on this page :) It is a little bit, out of control, but please don't tell the editors :)
Lastly, this layout was done when I had just joined the My Favorite Things Scraps and Arts team (now dissolved). I was exploring using my favorite Pure Innocence gal on scrapbook pages. This particular stamp is not in stock, but you can check out the rest of the PI stamps here.
Tonight is my DD's school's annual Achievement Fair. She did a wonderful project with some help from DH and me. I look forward to taking pictures of her in front of her display and scrapping them. It'll be like this one again, not exactly quality photos, but quality memories :)
