my scrap philosophy

I scrap for me. I would love to do every page and look at it saying "wow, I'm proud of that"...but sometimes pages get done and are just okay.....that's okay! I don't have perfect days everyday, I'm not a perfect mom all the time, and perfect wife...LOL, let's just say I'm no June Cleaver ;) And those last 10 pounds I lost keep finding their way back...life isn't perfect, and neither is every scrapbook page :)

April challenge at IIG

I originally typed something here that I decided to not say, so I continue to bite my tongue :)

instead I want to share the April challenge at If It's Groovy

 Your challenge that ends on the last day on April is to show me your all time favorite lo that you ever created :) Easy right??? 

I think this is a great way for everyone to go back and think about what they liked about old layouts, which sometimes we "grow" out of as we learn new techniques and grow as scrappers! 

I picked this one, which I made for my parents for Christmas (I framed it):
