He Holds My Heart - 123 Challenge

I'm excited that my marathon is complete.  I successfully ran 26.2 miles and I have the finishers medal to prove it!  My running routine will be drastically reduced which means my scrapbooking time with be drastically increased!  Yeah me!

Yellow is one of my new favorite colors, so when I came across this months challenge at 123 Challenge, I knew that I had to participate...

The requirements:
1.  Yellow
2.  Mixed Alphas in Title
3.  The word "Heart"

I started with plain white cardstock BG and spritzed and dropped yellow spray ink Dylusions by Ranger.  To be honest, it looked like someone urinated on my page...  so, I added black spray ink.  LOL!
Sometimes, the best paper is in my scrap box.  It is one of my first go-to places and was happy with what I found there.  In fact, all my paper on this page, with the exception of the BG is scraps.

Some Pages Inspired by Pinterest

Summer here in Michigan seems so short, so I spend a lot of my time outside with my boys.  Instead of scrapping during the summer, I'm out making the memories that I will scrap through the fall and the gloomy winter.  Needless to say, the activity level on my blog has suffered as a result.  I'm getting back into the swing of things now and have been busy getting some pages done.

I'm not sure where you get your inspiration, but for me, a lot comes from this little site call Pinterest.  I go through phases with this site.  It's a love / hate relationship.  Sometimes, I can spend hours searching for inspiration for scrapbooking, gardening, interior design, and much more.  And at other times, I can go weeks without looking at the site.

Anyways, I'm hoping these pages inspire others...

This was taken at Kalahari in Sandusky, Ohio.  Eric and I took our 2 boys and 2 of their friends to the indoor waterpark there.  We didn't know, but there was a ropes course there as well.  And of course, my boys had to give it a go!


Last year, we surprised the boys with a trip to Disney World.
I love the simplicity of this page.  I think it took me longer to choose the paper than it took me to put the entire page together.  Love those!
