More Stuff

I still have been working on some projects and layouts with pictures from our trip to Mexico this past September, and I am really liking the outcome! I had the idea for this mini album when I was actually in Mexico and made sure I jotted it down, so I would not forget it. I really love the concept, and I tried to keep things simple and not too complicated, as I just wanted to focus more on the natural beauty and stories of the pictures themselves. Little embellishments, little detail, little stress...it all came together so nicely and I really love the simplistic nature of the project. Here is a sneek peek of a few of the pages from my mini album. Here is another 12 x 12 layout that I completed for our big scrapbook. I used the picture I had taken of Matt and I on the beach at sunset...definitly one of my favorites. I loved the colors that I used, and of course the making memories paper and embellishment line. I just love all of their products and am truly addicted to buying them. They are so inspiring to use and I think they look so great on pages. I am loving how this album is coming together. Nothing is planned, or in any particular order...it is just being completed as I am feeling ready to, or inspired to I guess. Ultimately it is just our diary of the time we spent in Mexico, and our favorite moments, memories and photographs. It will be so nice to have to look through again and again, whenever we want to relive the time we spent here together. To me, this is what scrapbooking is all about. Capturing the memories, freezing time, and using our albums to bring us back to truly important and memorable times in our lives. I absolutely love it. It purely and simply just makes me one happy girl. Let's all be a little happy today!
