Most Tuesdays, I get some girl time with my scrapping friends, but not this week (unfortunately). Instead, Violet and I put on our crafty hats and got down to business right here at home. I am loving the fact that more and more I am able to scrapbook alongside my darling daughter. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if, in another several years Violet really loved to scrapbook as much as I do? In the meantime, I’m happy that she enjoys using scissors, markers and stickers with my scrap paper.
I was able to get one page done this morning and I’m happy with that! One more page of my mom’s old scrapbook done — 7 to go. These are photos taken way back in 1962 — the summer after Mom graduated high school and just before heading off to college. Looks like the girls got pretty wild back in the day; see the picture of them skinny dipping in the lake? My mom is the caboose. 😉
Next month I’m going to be asking for scrapbooking supplies for my birthday, so I’d better use up some of my old stuff. This is my first time using the FabRips I bought last year from Studio Calico. I love the pink houndstooth pattern and it was super easy to position. The flower and brad are Girls’ Paperie and the tags are Sticko.
I fell in love with this fabric flower (Bo Bunny) when I saw it, but haven’t found the perfect occasion for it until now. The hat pin is another item I’ve had for years and years. I love it here. (It is by Rebecca Sower Designs – Nostalgiques.) I just put a bit of ribbon under the flower to add a little color.
Now that I’ve released some creativity, I can go get some housework done! Maybe tonight I will be energetic enough to scrap some more… I want to finish that album!
