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 Challenge

Imaginisce has a "Found" Altered Challenge" this month.  I made these:





Here's how I made them...

I found a tutorial a long time ago on Two Peas in a Bucket by Tia Bennett, and knew I wanted to do it someday :)  So, I had saved these clamshells from some scrapping products:




On the first one I used my little square punch on another piece of paper and added a gem (I believe it's Imaginisce too...I've had them a while and have thrown the package away):



Then I used the product paper inside as a template to cut the backer paper...I love that this paper is double sided so that I can add a "to" and "from" on the back:



and here's what it looked like before I put the Smarties inside:



Thanks for looking!!!
