7/21 Masters Monday {Journaling on your layouts}

0 comments
Do you struggle with journaling on your layouts? I used to when I first started scrapbooking, I was never quite sure what to type. So I tried it from a different point of view.
99% of my layouts are photos of my little girl- they are her pages so most of the time I journal as if it was her speaking. Like this layout:

But then there are the pages where I want to just talk to her, or tell her something, so those are the pages I speak as myself.


I never worry about sounding perfect or using the 'right' words, I just type as if I was talking to her. I find that this way my words are true and they reflect the person I am. When I journal from my daughters perspective I try use words I could hear her saying when describing a photo or a memory.

Try it when you get stuck in a jam with journaling. Speak from a different perspective- it gives you a different way of recording a moment.

Sentiment Sunday {Brilliance}

0 comments
Hello everyone and welcome to another Sentiment Sunday. For today I have chosen the word.......Brilliance.
bril·liance
noun
1. great brightness; luster: the brilliance of a fine diamond.
2. excellence or distinction; conspicuous talent, mental ability, etc.
3. splendor, elegance, or magnificence: the brilliance of the court of Louis XIV.
4. Optics. that luminance of a body consisting of its saturation and brightness.
Last month my middle baby was in her dance recital so I chose definition 2 and created this page using Prima Ballerina

Saturday With The Stars: That's My Boy

0 comments
Welcome to another version of Saturday with the Stars! It's summer; I have boys; what better kit to feature this week than That's My Boy

Not only is it great for all kinds of boy-related pages and activities, it has enough neutral colors in it to work for almost any page!! And I just love all the textures in the coordinating cardstocks!

I love this page by Shauna of her little dog:

Helen took advantage of the neutral colors on this page about her daughter and her friend:

Mary Kate's page about her girls riding tractors is adorable:

Challenge Thursday {Photo}

0 comments
Hello everyone and welcome to another Challenge Thursday.
Todays challenge is a photo challenge. I am a strong believer of preserving the little moments as well as the big moments. Because the little things in life often end up being the most important. Plus, I think it's important to scrap about YOU as well as about others. So today I want you to take a photo of something that's about you and scrap a 'currently' layout.
I took a photo of my shoes, I'm actually standing on the entrance mat outside of my front door. I kept the journaling really basic, maybe you might want to go all out and do a full journaling layout?


I am very excited to see what you think about this prompt and if you have ever scrapped a 'currently' layout. Tell me in the comments!

Have a great day!
