Back to my love for Scrapbooking

I had some quiet time to sit and scrap a bit. I was inspired by several websites. First of all I would like to show you my "real paper" scrap page. I haven't scrap with paper in a while, thou that's how I started with paper crafting. I was truly inspired by CSI: Color, Stories and Inspiration, Case File No. 99.  I am sooo glad I found this place, it is so fresh, so encouraging, ladies so friendly. The colors for this week's case are fabulous. I happened to have this photo on my dresser's mirror since 2012! I love gazing at my boy and cherish the joy he reflects. Today at last I scrap the photo and I'm glad with the results. :)

My inspiration word was 'Gaze'.
My Evidence was fabric (twine bow), silver metal (clip), 6 of something (6 silver brads). :)
My Testimony was using stripes as journaling lines (hiding behind the photo, can you see them?), it takes two, you see two different fonts (in my "You are lovely" stamp and my "Gaze" title. (a third is in my own handwriting, but sshhh).
Today at last I scrap the photo and I'm glad with the results. :)

I love love scrapbooking digitally too since I met MDS (My Digital Studio). Never care about it because I thought it was too difficult. Wroong! Not with MDS. Lately I've been truly inspired to journal a bit on my second child. Assume because she is my busiest child. Lol!

I followed this awesome sketch from MDS Monday MDSM41. Let's get out the bling! Check this website, so much inspiration and so much you can do with MDS. Yipee!

I used some rhinestones (wished I had sequins :/) but loving the bling!
I love the white on white background. It is hard to see really because is digital and my blog's background is white...but the white border you see around is actually a layer of Whisper White CS on top of the background. I was inspired by ScrapAfrica Challenge 23.
This month is "White with a Pinch of" So I used mainly white plus blue...and multicolor! ;)

Have you been scrapping lately? I scrap as able, my life remains as busy as always...I think after you have children that never changes, eh!? I'm ok with that. I am the most productive when I am the busiest. Weird but true. Have a blessed week! See you tomorrow with some Thank you card ideas!
It is the season to be grateful! I am indeed.


Thanks for being here...a pleasure to have you in my creative home!
