Great ending to a great weekend!

I had a fantastic weekend! I hope everyone else did too! It feels good to let out all of your creative juices that you've been holding onto after a fun packed weekend. I sat down next to my paper scraps and wondered what I could do with them. I keep EVERYTHING, thinking I could use it. And eventually I do! There's always use out of the littlest scraps of things. You'd be surprised what you could make! I didn't use my Cameo or E2 for this one either! The picture is of my niece, Imogen and I (she's almost 1!). I'm having so much fun being her aunt. She's such a great baby! Enjoy!


I just picked out all the little pieces of paper and hand cut them (I didn't mind not having uniformity) into strips. I had the most fun digging through my buttons finding the perfect ones! Also, I don't love my handwriting, but I love it for scrapbooking. There's something very special about finding something my grandparents had written and knowing they took the time to document it. I hope my work stays around long enough for my grandkids to see it. And understand that memory I scrapbooked, was meaningful enough for me to try to preserve it.



Supplies used:

Cardstock, buttons, ribbon, letters: Scraps!
Felt stars: Pebbles layered embellishments 
"Cute as a button" and butterfly rub ons: K&Company
Ink (edges of paper): CTMH Crystal Blue
