I'm going to be a scrapbooker again!

Good morning friends! I've been wanted to get back into my "scrapbooker" mode. While I was in Germany it was a challenge to get my photos, and since I'm not very quick with the digital aspect yet(but I'm working on it!) I have missed the paper and photos combo! So, I've made a goal to get back to my this is where I started my papercrafting love affair!

Today I have a layout I made about my daughter. I LOVE these photos from this summer. We were at the park with my sister and her kids while visiting my parents. It was a beautiful summer evening and I the 100% perfection of these photos. Well, perfection is relative isn't it!? Photography isn't my forte, but I am so happy to have caught these shots of my little girl. The pure joy she is having...I love that.
My journaling reads "Lovebird. I'm not sure where that name came from. Daddy started calling you 'Lucy Lovebird' a while ago, but now it is usually just 'lovebird.' You are such a ray of sunshine in our family. You are kind to everyone. You show love to everyone that you know. You are willing to help in whatever way you can. You acutally ask for what job you can do next...what 5 year old does that!? You are a wonderful loving sister and daughter. You help us all to show love. I love you my dear sweet Lovebird!"

I used a sketch from Jana Eubanks for the starting point on this layout. My products are a lot of SU stuffs. Patterned paper: Sweet Pea dsp, some old retired papers. Old Olive cardstock, MS flower bed border punch. MM Paperie Rouge journaling book, AC sticker alphabet. Stiched felt flowers from SU.

I'm really hoping to get more layouts felt SO good to scrap today...I'll be back in the saddle in no time! Now that I'm all done with my photo project...I finished putting our photos from Germany and Europe into photo albums...14 albums to be exact...that means 4200 photos! All the photos I have in my possession are organized and right where they make sense in my head! Now, I can feel good about scrapping...I know where the photos are that I love and that makes for one happy momma!!

I also did something that made my Lovebird very happy, I gave her all the photos that she took, with our little camera. We learned very quickly that a camera did wonders to keep our little people happy while on their long walks through foreign cities! It's fun to see things through her eyes, and she's excited to "scrapbook" her photos...yea!!

I hope you have a great weekend! Take care and I'll check in again Monday! Make it a great one!

I LOVE your page, it's really beautiful and the focus on the photos is perfect! I, too, plan on scrapbooking again too, just gotta get that camera out and concentrate on taking pics of my boy more!! It's so hard, isn't it? It's just easier it seems to take a photo of a card, lol!
