Speaking of my girls...



This layout I did based on a Becky Higgin's sketch is featured in the current issue of CK Magazine. A few of you have already spotted it. I had just taken these photos of Bella, and shortly after that was listening to the Charlotte's Web movie soundtrack and on there is a song (by I can't remember who...sorry...I need to look that up) called "You Color My World". That basically summed it up for me, and so I skipped the journaling that I normally am most passionate about on my layout, and instead, I poked holes and hand-stitched a yarn rainbow. It reminded me of my own self as a little girl. I used to love those 'sewing pages' that I played with; fond memories.

That is what I am beginning to love about scrapbooking. I'm not only having fun and being creative, but I'm also saving memories for my own kids, sharing a piece of my own heart and soul, and sometimes, even being nostalgic about my past. I had no idea scrapbooking would ever be such a great part of my life.

And just because I am sooo excited and have yet to spill this great scrapbooking news, why not do it now, right?! Well, the big news is that I get to attend CHA Chicago in July! I will be there with all my Fashionista Scrap In Style SISters. SO, if you're there and you see me...make sure to say hello! I guarantee you that I will be in 'rare form'. Rare, crazy, excited form! Hopefully some of all our SIS excitement will be caught on dvd, and you will likely see it on a webisode. There is some funny, interesting, and downright informative stuff on the webisodes up already. Including the latest by none other than KelliCrowe. You can check those out here. Yay! I'm headed to Chicago!!
