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 :)

wanted to share what I did on NSD.  I mostly did challenges at

first had to make a card, so I made this for my middle daughter who is graduating next her school colors:

The next one you had to feature your favorite tool in your scraproom....I did a quick 8x8.  Personally, I don't like challenges where I don't make a layout or project that I will actually use.  I mean really, what am I going to do with this page LOL?!  But it was quick ;)

Next you had to do one with a lot of journaling.  I don't normally like my handwriting, but did it anyway!  I don't know if I like the kraft background or not, but what's done is done (I'm not one of those "go back and re-do pages" kind of girl...I've got 20 years of memories to work on people LOL!): 

Then, thankfully the next challenge was for vacation/getaway pics.  YAY, I always do two pagers...not always matching 2 pagers, just same papers and such, so it gave me the chance to do the 2nd page to the one above: 

The last one was to include a handmade flower.  So I used one of mine made from pattern tissue.  This is my mom's mother's day present: 

Then I spent the next 3 days re-organizing my scraproom.  Now I gotta catch up on DT projects...OH, and my oldest is getting married next Wednesday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  YIKES!
