But back to the stresses of life. Thankfully, I'm a scrapper. It makes me happy. It helps me relieve stress. It relaxes me. In spite of how busy I've been, I've managed to scrap by buns off. Like I said, it relaxes me. Or maybe I'm just subconsciously getting ready for Lain Ehmann's Layout a Day in October.
Speaking of Lain, she is going to be a guest blogger on Brooklyn Girl Next Door next week. Stop by to read her post on Monday. Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win a cool prize. I haven't decided what that prize is going to be, but I'll make a decision by the time her post is live. See you then.
These layouts were inspired by Big Picture Scrapbooking's Big Idea Festival. Karen Grunberg's contribution really inspired me. I loved how she use small photos (1x1.5) in a grid format to show the happiness of her family right now. I chose to document Summer 2010.
Here I finally made some time to scrap some of this summer's birthday parties, using Memory Works Simple Stories line. Love it!
These next few layouts finally got me to use my stash. I've had most of these papers for quite some time and rediscovered them. The newer products are on the "Red Carpet Shower" layout are from My Mindy's Eye So Sophie Line.
I made it my business to do lots of journaling in these layouts; beyond the date, place and event! It was certainly therapeutic and I'm happy to add thoughtful words to my layouts.
