Hello there! Happy Saturday... it looks like this is at least becoming a weekly thing - this blogging. I'm working on my consistency folks... bear with me!
I'm actually hanging out at the Cool Crops Scrapbooking Retreat this weekend and had a few moments to check-in on the ole' blog and thought I'd share with you a scrapbook page I made as one of my entries for Stampin' Up's annual Artisan Design Team.
Demonstrator selected for the team receive a box full of FREE goodies each month to play with. Fun, right? Just another perk of being an SU demo. Unfortunately, I didn't make the cut this year, but there is always next time.
The good news is that I can now share these samples with you as the winner announcement was made at convention. I'm a little behind in posting them, so most of the supplies on this layout are retired, but it can still be a great starting point for a page if you have one special photo you'd like to showcase.
This page features my Mom. I've had so many stories bouncing around in my head since losing her last year. So many things I want to be sure I remember for the rest of my life.
The journaling on the page reads:
There are thousands of little things that make me think of you each day: birds chirping in the early morning, the fragrant smell of lilacs, musty old antique stores and beautiful gardens, just to name a few. Your wisdom is often repeated in my mind just when I need a little shove in the right direction. You may be gone, but you'll remain in my heart forever.
I think scrapbooking can be really therapeutic when you are dealing with loss. And I really hope to do some more pages about my Mom and her influence. She was such an amazing woman and I never want to forget all the stories...
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
