Back to scrappin...

My daughter, Born To Fly, recently wrote a wonderful post, Back To Basics,  about the joy of creating scrapbook pages regarding life's little moments.  I am fortunate to have a talented and artistic daughter who enjoys scrappin as I do.  I enjoyed her post because I had been lamenting to her that I needed to get back to paper scrappin.  While I luv all the altered art projects I make, my first true love is creating scrapbook layouts which capture the moments and stories of my life.  Soooo on Tuesday I began scrappin....
Page One:  Our son works for the Department of State and in April 2009 we spent a month in Romania visiting him and our sweet Grandboys  : ) but I never slowed down long enough to document our journey, other than our travel blog, thus this seemed like a great story to document. 
Page two
The two page spread:  with papers and embellisments from Cocoa Daisy's July 2008 Kit, featuring Ali Edwards' favorite products...LOL.  Can you believe it, 2008 and I still have the full kit unused.  Another commitment I have made is to use up my stash and quit buying new product!!!  Felt so good to get started again.


Would love to hear about what you are working on...
XOXO
Catherine

What style! What class! What cute grandboys! ( I enlarged them!) And isn't it wonderful having a daughter who loves the same things you do?
