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 :)

Imaginisce sketch challenge

Imaginisce has this sketch this month:



I made this layout:



This is my youngest niece, Sophia, who turned 2 today. Her mom had posted this pic on her facebook last week of her trip to the pumpkin patch with her little preschool. Each kid was allowed to have a pumpkin, whatever pumpkin they wanted, but they had to carry it back by themselves...she picked a huge one, and her mom didn't think she'd make it...but she did! It's funny to think that this little girl that only weighed 3lbs 13ozs when she was born picked a huge pumpkin and carried it back all by herself!

some details:



that foam board with the canvas that the layout is pinned to is the back of the shadowbox that I put this in.




I sewed around the words "pumpkin patch", and also used the rub-on acorns over the acorns on the paper, to cover the cut in the paper.  Can you see my bling, love my I-Rock!  I cut the banner from the Apple Cider "Cinnamon Sticks" paper.


I lifted the pumpkin paper piecing idea from http://lilybeedesign.blogspot.com/2010/10/creating-pumpkin-paper-piecing-from.html ...see the stem?  It's a tree cut from the Apple Cider "Fall in Love" paper.

Here's what it looks like in the shadowbox:
