Ramblings of a Scrapbooker

One of my biggest problems as far as scrapbooking goes is Holidays. I HATE to scrap them. Love the memories but hate scrapping them. No matter how good the idea for a page sounds in my head it NEVER comes out the way I had intended it to be. Then I struggle with which album to put it in,etc. So last night it hit me. I tried a 6X6 page with a pic from my girls combined Princess Party and now I am hooked. I mean seriously hooked. I really enjoyed that size. So from now on each holiday will get it's own 6X6 album. Now I am aware that that will leave us with like 100 6X6 albums in the next 20 years but that is ok. The kids can deal with that when I am long gone. Last night I got my groove back and sat down to scrap. For some reason I had lots of ideas running through my head and I decided to go with it. I also realized that I need to go back to Hobby Lobby to get some 6X6 albums while they are 50% off. Hubby is not too pleased seeing as how I went yesterday too.

Here is what I got yesterday. These are adorable little glitter bugs that I have had my eye on for a while. I love it because there are butterflies and bugs so it is perfect for my girls and the boy. I can't wait to play with them.

These are princess crown brads. So fun to play with!!



I did 3 lo's last night but one was the smaller size and I am not ready to share that one yet but here are the other 2. I am happy with how they turned out.




So that is my big share today. Hope everyone has a great day!!

I like the princess brads, too. It really is a good idea to scrap 6x6 for holidays...I hate scrapping holidays as well.

That's you on that page, isn't it? I've never seen a picture of you, nice to see a glimpse :)

You got some really cute stuff! I can't wait to go shopping for a few new supplies this weekend myself.

Your layouts are really cute too! I like the inking/distressing around the edges. I'd really like to try that on some of my hybrid projects but I have no idea what to buy to get that look.
