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 :)

We had a "thumbprint" challenge over at If It's Groovy this month.

When I got our Family Fun magazine I tore this page out:

....what a great idea for my thumbprint! My only problem was I didn't have a page right now to add it to, so what I decided to do was make some of my own handmade printed paper. I just did it down opposite sides of two pieces of cardstock so I could use them for a future two page layout:

 Well, that was fun, so then I decided to make a card that I can have on hand and just add a sentiment later: 

 then a tag:

and last I had some scrap kraft paper on hand, and I did two 12 inch vines and fussy cut them out so that I can use them as borders:

 It's so fun to make your own stuff :)
