It's the Little Things, You Know...

I feel the need to scrapbook! Just pain old scrapbooking -- no Project Life (I'm loving it, but I'm longing for regular 12 x 12 layouts right now!) and no mixed media projects. I've been on a painting/sketching kick for about 6 weeks now and I think it's time to take a break. I miss SCRAPPING!

So, to help me ease into this week of scrapbooking, I've been participating in the talented Shimelle's online crop (and there's still time to particpate! It runs through the end of this weekend!) Here is the challenge, and below, my version. SEE ORIGNAL CHALLENGE HERE

I love this photo from way back when... These two are now teenagers and what I wouldn't do to go back and visit with them at this stage -- they were two and four! Photos like this are the reason I scrapbook. It just totally takes me back in time, and helps me remember the little things. After all, it really is about the little things in life, isn't it?

Some Of My Favorite Things...

Some photos don't document big milestones in life. Some of my favorite photos, in fact, are pictures of the little things that make life so sweet. This photo just makes me happy!

I glanced at my desk top today and just had to grab my camera. My new Neo Pastels prominently on top of my stack, along with all my favorite supplies for my Project Life album... (Fun little chalk-board container from Target. Love!) All this scrappy goodness AND a glass of Prosecco -- what more could a girl ask for?! Cheers to the little things, my friends, and happy creating!
