Scrapbook Monday3~Free Spirit

Hey everyone! So I think I am going to designate Mondays to Scrapbook pages. I am really trying to stick with my 52 Scrapbook pages for the year. I am hoping that I far surpass my goal and I think I just may as long as I don't get discouraged and give up lol.

To be honest I went online to the other day because they were having a sale 75 pictures for 9.99 I thought that was a good deal and I like the print quality of walgreens photos. (ADVICE WELCOME) Well anyway to get to my point lol (I ramble) it took me 5 hours to edit and upload 75 pictures. And 75 was a VERY VERY small amount of the pictures I have. That's what we do, us scrapbookers, we document everything through a photo. Half of the pictures I took I couldn't even remember why I had taken them or the significance of the occasion. YES that is something I am going to remedy, starting NOW. So if you'd like to join me come on over on Mondays and I'll have a new project up. If you've made a scrapbook page I'd LOVE to see it so please post a link in the comments so I can jump over there and check it out!

On a side note: I'm trying really, really hard to not buy new products. I realized that if I didn't buy another scrapbook product I would be able to make cards and scrapbook pages for the next 10 years without running low on material. I'm sure most of my fellow crafters are the same so I'm attempting to use up my products. Use old materials and embellishments in a new way. My problem is...I'm a pretty stuff HOARDER! If it's really pretty I don't want to use it because well the perfect picture or project might come up and by golly what if I've already used that perfect embellishment. So my other attempt this year is to USE IT!!!!!! 

Without anymore rambling here we go...

I've had these Anna Griffin embellishments and paper for about 3 years now (as long as I've been scrapbooking) You know the thing about embellishments...they lose their stick if you don't use them. Yeah learned that lesson the hard way! Anyhow all paper and embellishments are Anna Griffin and the black is Stampin up.

 Isn't this just a beautiful "flower" I had to put it on here.

My Free Spirit baby. I'd like to say that she gets this from her mamma but that would be a bold faced lie, so I wont. She amazes me everyday at how marvelous she is. I'll be sure to journal but I find the journaling very personal so it goes on after I take pictures of it. Perhaps someday I can share the journaling as well but to me the journaling is like a love letter I'm writing to my kids. :)

 Who loves Instagram raise your hand! ;) I do!!! I just discovered it and I'm in love! Its a really fun way to share photos. That's how this page came to be. This was one of the first pictures I took of the baby and I LOVE it. I think she is just so beautiful though so a funky photo setting can't really mess that up. I'm totally partial ;) My name on there is ravenb28 if you'd like to follow me. I'm pretty boring but its still a fun app. ;)

Hope you are all having a fabulous day!!!!


  1. I ADORE it!!! TFS. you girl never seem to amaze me :-)

  2. Gorgeous layout chickadee! I love the embellishments♥ By the way, I do the same thing, I hoard all the pretty stuff and I never want to use it in case I might need it for something else ;)
