How often do we really scrap a page about ourselves.  I've dedicated an entire album, A- Z, on just me.  Now, granted, most of the pages are empty, but all I can do is one page at a time.

My mom passed away last August and she left us with wonderful memories.  I'd like to leave more than memories to my boys.  I want them to really know who I am.  My likes and dislikes, my thoughts, my memories.  These scrapbooks I make are for them, something tangible they can cherish, along with the memories.

This page was designed using sketch # 227 from Sketch Inspiration and also for Challenge Week #5 at My Scraps and More.

Thanks for stopping!


  1. totally awesome page ... I just love that story, and I'm sure the boys will too! LOVE the background paper ... I don't recognize it ... what pack is that from?! I like how bright and colorful this turned out ... I also really like the simple, clean lines ... sometimes I forget how great a page can look without a ton of ink and distressing! Great job ...

  2. The BG paper was from CKC in Louisville, KY. I'm not sure what class it was from, but if I remember correctly, it was Basic Grey. I've noticed that I've gotten away from journaling a bit and really need to make it a point to include it!

  3. A wonderful photo into a beautiful page! I loved the heart and the little sign with the words, perfect!

  4. Good morning!!! Have a nice week!!!
