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?

Awww...too sweet! I have some young adults that I'd like to revisit as little ones again too. As hectic as they were I miss those days!

I know what you mean about missing your scrapbook time. I too have been getting crazy about my mixed media classes and need the picture memory fix I get from scrapbooking. Love you layout!

Thanks so much, Ladies! I miss those days, too, Madeline! They passed so quickly... Oh well, I better just embrace TODAY! :)

I love how you did three embellishments and created a visual circle which draws your eye to the photo !
