I am proud of myself! I did 4 scrapbook pages this weekend! This one is a re-do. All of us evolve in our craft, whatever it may be. Sometimes I look back at previous pages and think "Ugh! What was I thinking??" Other times, I'm happy with what I've done and the feeling I captured on the page. This time, however, I felt I needed to add more than just the date, place, and event as I did originally. I also feel I can give a different perspective to the photos now than I could "back then." For example, these photos are of my oldest son when he was 5. Now he's almost 16. As his mom, I look at his precious face and think about the young man he's becoming and how much I treasure moments spent with him. I just added a little more journaling, but I like the vellum sentiment that says "Happy are the pure in heart." I think it conveys meaning about the pictures.
The background paper is from Paper Studio; the journaling block is Bo Bunny. The "E" monogram stamp is from Studio G. Thanks for looking and have a good day!

Hello! I have a cute Halloween project to share today. I made this "witchy" dish towel by following this tutorial. I didn't have any ric-rac for the bottom edge and I used buttons on the boots instead of ribbon. I thought the idea was so cute and a great gift idea. I also decorated the little jar from Ikea with a cute witch stamp from DJ Inkers.
I added a bow to the top and put M&M's in the jar. Halloween candy would look great inside, but I didn't have any on hand for the photo. : )
Hope you enjoyed this project. I am so inspired by all of the creativity out there in sewing and holiday decorating blogs! I haven't had much creative time lately; busy with school stuff! I hope to post a scrapbook page I finished soon. Thanks for looking and have a great day!
