Another fantastic thing about being a scrapper is never having to buy premade cards again. They're so impersonal, and sometimes expesive for the nice ones. I haven't met on person yet who didn't enjoy receiving a handmade card from me. They seem to keep ahold of them longer as well. Here are some cute sketchs by yours truely to try your hand at. Remember to show me your work!

Some words to live by...... and them some we wish we didn't have to.

Hey girls, one of the most important elements on our pages / cards are the words! Whether it's the title, the journaling, a quote, or phrase, the words are what set the mood of the page. Here are some of my favorite "words" over the last few years. My challenge for you is to sellect one of these "words" and use them on a layout or card.

Between the innocence of babyhood
and the dignity of manhood,
we find a delightful creature of a boy.

Sometimes if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowely away beneath you, you suddenly know everything there is to be known. - Winnie the Pooh

Today you are you,
that is truer than true.
There is no one alive
who is you-er than you!
- Dr. Seuss

The world is mud-elicious and puddle-underful. - E.E. Cummings

Advice is what we ask for
when we already know the answer
but wish we didn't.

Give me a call
or write me a letter
You'll feel good
but I'll feel better.

Gateway to the World

This is my son, Camron getting ready to slide down the tube slide at the park. I decided to journal right onto the photo this time. Journaling: Leave a door open, son. Learn what you can from others and use it to grow. Understand that while you may not always like everyone, there are unique parts of all of us that make us special. Look beneath the hard exteriors, the walls. You never know what will end up touching your soul. Leave your heart exposed. While you risk getting hurt, it will let you love to the fullest. Rather than let one rule, let your heart and brain work in unity. Love, dream, explore, touch, smell, travel, laugh, and wonder. My challenge for you is to blow up a photo and journal in the open space. Don't forget to show me what you come up with!
