The silly things teenagers say ...

I've been wanting to scrap a silly page like this for a long time. It was a lot of fun to put all these silly little random things that my son says (and that amuse me) down on a page so now I know that I really will remember them! Documenting these random things is why I scrap!

Mother's Day

I always journal on my pages. It's important to me to get my stories down in words as well as photos as much as possible. (OK, occasionally I don't journal, but not often.) This was an exception ... to the opposite extreme. While I almost alway journal my pages I seldom journal quite this much. This time I had a story I really wanted to tell (and remember) so I started with the story and then worked the page from there. I'm happy with it. I may have to do this more often!

How about you? Do you journal on your pages? Never? Occasionally? Always? We've all got our own style that works for us. Good thing there's no right or wrong!

Good Times - More digi goodness from Sabrina's Creations

Before I went to bed last night and while I was watching some TV with the kiddos, I had a chance to play with more digi goodness from Sabrina's Creations. What fun! I used this Clean & Simple template design on a page last year but I decided that since I loved it then and love it now ... and it's in a different book ... I could use it again! You've gotta love a great page design!

Credits: Clean & Simple no. 19 and Understated kit

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see ...

I got to play with a kit by Sabrina's Creations tonight. It's called "In The Making" and it's gorgeous!
