Hello, scrappy followers!

It has been more than four months since my last post, and I feel terrible for not keeping my blog updated. And I actually had to think really hard about how to do it! Honestly, even though I don’t have too many followers, I realize I can never build my scrappy groupies if I never post anything new! So a lot has happened in my life since December 29 when I last posted (many great things, some not-so-great things, but LOTS of scrappin), but I am not going to go into detail about that right now. Instead, I will be posting a series of layouts I did this weekend in celebration of National Scrapbook Day. I love whoever invented this day!!!

First up is a layout of my now-12-year-old daughter, Sydney, at her confirmation … hard to believe this was more than a year ago already. Anyway, this layout is for a challenge posted by Scrapbook and Cards Today on using memoribilia. I used Sydney’s confirmation certificate here … but you’ll see it’s tiny! I didn’t want to use up most of my scrappin’ real estate for the certificate, so I shrunk it on a colour copier! This little trick was suggested some time ago by my dear sister, Penny. She was awesome. I miss her so much. Pen, this one is for you <3.



Okay, watch for another post on the next challenge!

Thank you for visiting,
