Some Scrapbooking Fun....






I have never shared any of my LO's before....kinda a private thing...but I thought what the hay! Scrapbooking....is such an outlet for me. It is constantly changing and such stimulation creatively. I don't think I have ever had a craft challenge me as much! I love pictures and am lucky enough to have many of my families pictures from wayyyyyy back. Can you think of a better way to leave behind something to your children? Giving them a glimpse into the past and the way things were. As close to time travel as you are gonna get!
I have always loved papers, stationary, etc. I remember getting so excited one Christmas because my Mother had special ordered some stationary and pads with my name on it! Have you ever seen Cherry on anything? NOPE. I still have one paper pad with my name on it. I loved paperdolls and those little villages you carefully cut out and created. I really think the skys the limit when it comes to creating with paper. Anyways.. enough of my love affair with paper. Above are a few layouts I did last night while watching the new Jane Austin movie. xoox, cherry

Great Layouts Cherry.
How lucky that your Mom was so into paper and you got stationary with your name on it.

Hello, Cherry, so glad to see you back! What lovely scrapbooking! I always imagine how future generations will view scrapbooking -- as a sort of beautiful pastime for 20th century ladies, much the same way that painting screens was for 18th century ladies!

Have a wonderful day!
xoxo,
Mary

I found your blog through Today's Creative Blogs. Your layouts are great!

But what I really love is the bowl of doorknobs in your last post. That looks so fabulous! And I see that you have a fondness for roosters just like me!
