Scrap Happy!

Okay, so I am typing this for the SECOND TIME now and if that isn't enough to make someone really mad, I don't know what is! Just kidding... it's frustrating, but nothing to waste energy on getting angry over.


So here's the short & sweet version of what I had before. I love scrapbooking... but once, I was the girl who was convinced that scrapping was not for me. The instant gratification of making cards was so much more enticing to me... but I have jumped that hurdle and I'm diving full force into scrapbooking!

I made this page the other day... and I have really come to love it! My boys really enjoy fishing with their Daddy and Brandon finally took pics for me while they were out on the boat.
And my wonderful husband - the great fisherman that he is, has taught my boys how to properly tell "fish tales"...

The next spread I did was to fulfill a challenge that was given to me by Joan in my Sisterhood 10 group... the challenge was to make a scrapbook page using NO Designer SB Paper. We often tend to take the easy way out and use dp in nearly everything we do... so I was all over this challenge when it was presented... and I must admit, I am right proud of myself... not to TOOT my own horn or anything, but I think it came out beautifully!

So, what do you think? I'm getting used to this scrapbooking thing... and I must admit...

I REALLY LIKE IT!

So I'm off... to feed my girl some lunch... thanks for stopping by - and leave a message, let me know who's visiting me! Have a blessed day!

wow! Both your pages are just fabulous! I love the challenge one and how you've Popped the butterflies. Just beautiful, I don't scrap as often as I'd like for the same reason, sometimes it can take a few days for a page to come together, whereas a card is done in less than an hour. FTS.
