masterful scrapbook design is free for the first ten days. ;) ***
well! i think i might like scrapbooking again! maybe you haven't noticed, but i haven't scrapbooked (other than project life pages) in four months. woah. i was beginning to worry that the urge was just gone, gone, gone. seriously, i was worried. i did manage to make a halloween page a couple weeks ago. i liked it okay, but it didn't give me that creative thrill. but this one. oh yes. i made it two nights ago and i feel so creatively invigorated. happy sigh.
then to make the feeling even better, my niece and i were talking about our kids and loose teeth and i had to flip through the scrapbooks for reference. it was such a wonderful walk through memory lane. it wasn't just the delight in having all those thoughts and memories recorded. not just that. i could remember the thrill of creating so many of those layouts. really. all my favorites i just remembered the actual act of creating them and how i felt in that moment. such a good feeling.
so now i am wanting to dig around in my papers and inks and make something meaningful. hooray for fall break and a scrappy playdate. let's get scrapping!
antiquarian and artisan kits. i wasn't sure what to do with that pack of feathers, but i wanted to use them so i went flipping through my photo files for inspiration. this set of photos gave it to me. they are from a fall campout in which our cub scouts and siblings had an epic stick fight in the woods. the journaling reads, "you think she's trouble now; wait till little sister is sixteen." the double meaning behind the title really makes me giggle.
here and here.
