The Day I Fell In Love

I am having so much fun with this We Are Family Kit from Scraptastic Club!! I am scrapbooking more often and scrapbooking things I wouldn't normally scrap. As I've said before, this kit is all about family so here I go again with a layout about Chris and I. This is one of the last layouts I did with this kit so I was down to scraps. A lot of pinks and teals so I took this pic out of a broken frame and started scrapping.
We took this selfy on a day trip to the Oregon coast. Chris packed a picnic and we played on the beach with my dog Shilo. It was this trip that I realized I was falling in love with him. How could I not? Picnic on the beach and all.


I'm using things I would never use otherwise. I don't normally pick these colors but really love working with them. The flower pins are something I thought I wouldn't use but I used all 6 of them from this kit. If you've never purchased a kit before, check them out now. Such a fun way to scrap!!!
Thanx for stopping by!

This!! is what it's all about!

This made my day when I saw my boys looking at my scrapbooks. It's because of them and for them that I do this amazing craft. Scrapbooking brings me so much joy and to see my boys enjoying it too means the world to me.
This layout came together haphazardly. I started it at night by cutting out the chevron. I put the papers down and the photos on top and went to bed. The next morning I liked the way it was positioned so I kept it that way. That's how the rest of the layout came together as well.


I began cutting out the cut aparts from the Scraptastic Club September We Are Family kit and tossed them on the page and really liked where they fell. All of Jessica's kits come with so many embellishment so I just kept tossing them on the page till I was satisfied.

Just love this cluster in the bottom corner. Those wood veneer hearts are amazing!
