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 isn't perfect, and neither is every scrapbook page :)

Imaginisce Sketch Challenge

Imaginisce has this sketch challenge on their blog:

here's my take:

First, I have to say, I never thought I would use "fall" themed paper on a Hawaii layout!  All products are Imaginisce except the thread, the cardstock background, and the paper the title was printed on.

This was a series of errors that I made work in the end.  First, I wish I picked the slightly darker blue background paper that I originally pulled, but too late, I had already glued down the rectangles that I cut too small, and sewed with too light of a yellow thread, and because I cut them too short, I filled in between the bottom two with what is supposed to look like a leaf banner on a branch, ummm I tried LOL, then in between the top two, I hand journaled, but hated the way it looked,  so fortunately I had the chipboard "warm memories" to cover that, then I had used some epoxy letters for the title that didn't fit, but in removing them I messed the paper up a little, so I had to print the title on cardstock that kept having trouble going through my (old) printer

But, in the end I ended up liking it anyway!  Thanks for looking!


I did a companion page to it based on this week's sketch at Sketch Inspiration :

My take (and the green letters in person match the paper better than it looks in this photo):
