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 :)

Roll 'Em!

For our monthly challenge at Let's Get Peachy, w went to this website:

There were "3" dice to roll, and then we created a lo using the dice this way:
The first dice represents how many pics to use.
The second dice represents how many patterned papers you will use.
The third dice is how many embellishments you will use.

here was my roll:

So I did this layout:

I decided to do a lot of fussy cutting. The clouds were all cut from one piece of patterned paper (except the small blue ones, which were punched from a solid blue piece), the cloud border from another, and the rainbow from the third. My 2 embellishments are the metal word and the chipboard frame. Now, there's a funny reason why the pictures are cut...I had cut them down to 4x4 size, but then realized that part that I cut off of the one of my son was I added pieces back in...sometimes mistakes make a fun layout :) This is in Laupahoehoe point in Hawaii...there was a Tidal Wave there a very long time ago, such a beautiful place that had a horrible tragedy.  This was based on a Page Maps sketch.

When I did this, I wanted a second page (I work in twos, but don't always do them as "2 page" designs, kwim? LOL) that week Let's Scrap had this sketch:

it was a card sketch, but I did a layout:


printed paper was all Crate Paper "Season Collection"

same for the chipboard frame

the metal word is Making Memories

the cloud punch is Fiskars

also used Pop Dots, Zots, and Zips and my We R Memory Makers circle cutter
