Hey Crafters! I'm really on a roll with my scrapbooking. Normally I like to stay on theme, event; all that stuff. You may do that too. But this month I am picking out pictures I want to scrap then just creating a layout around them and it's actually easy. It works better of course if you are using a three-ring binder scrapbook album so you can add the pictures where you want within it. Can I share a second thing? How do you journal? I mean, do you hand write your journaling or do you type them then cut and add to your layout? I like to hand write mine. My mother died in 2005 and I don't have many things with her handwriting on them, but every now and then I run across a picture and find her writing on the back and my heart skips a beat! I remember her writing and I love to see it. So I think about my kids, grandchildren and even great grandchildren and them looking through all of the albums I'm creating and can just imagine one of them saying, "look here, this is Nana's own handwriting"! Okay so on with the share, the page base is Old Olive with Bold Brights Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise dsp layers. The stampset used is Simple Friendship (#113397) which is currently 30% discounted for May to celebrate National Scrapbook Month. I also used Jumble Alphabet stampset to stamp "Maui". Have a great week, thanks for visiting!
