Scrapbooking with flowers, ribbons and all things beautiful -- with BOYS!

If you're like me, a Mother to Boys and a little more then addicted to scrapbooking - the paper, ribbons, flowers, buttons, glitter, you might be wondering how to incorporate all those finds into the perfect layout! I'm here to help! At least, I'll try. I've been scrapbooking for about 8 years and have only recently decided I was done with holding back on all the beautiful embellishments and am going to start using them. Hope you enjoy my journey!

Just One of Those Days

I've had them, you've had them, we've all had them....just one of those days when you don't know if you should keep trying or just turn around and go back to bed.  I think in this kitty's case, she was trying the "maybe if I look at it upside down, it will look better" perspective.  Whatever the reason, it's always good to remember, that it is just ONE of those days, and if not today, tomorrow, or the next day, it will get better! 

This layout took all of about 30 minutes, which is really fast, even for me.  Inspired by Scrap your Crap's latest challenge to use 10 different manufacturing lines on a single layout, I picked all kinds of things -- brads that have been hanging around forever, scrap pieces (GCD, Carole's Creations, SEI and some others...), some Pink Paislee tape, Colorbok butterfly and frame that I've had (I kid you not) atleast 5 years and letter stickers that I've had for 5 if not longer years.  So - once again, thank you Scrap Your Crap for helping me to use a bit more of my stash!!!  Hope you like it!
