This is a "peom" (trust me, I am NOT a poet, I know there may be improper grammer and such in this, it's more of just how I feel and what I remember, so try not and be too critical of it).or more like a letter to my Grandpa about the memories I have from being a child. I normally wouldn't post something like this, mostly because I really don't like my handwritting, some days it's better than others, and well, today it was not looking so nice. But I figured I need to start humbling myself and like who I am and how I do things. And just to show a kind of neat idea when sending someone a birthday card or any kind of card for that matter. Just to write a little poem or note to that person that would make it even more special. My Grandpa lives in another state so I hardly get to see my grandparents as often and I'd like, and they're getting older and I would like to see them soon, I miss them.
More proof that I was up even later!

Look familiar? This was the super simple card I made for my Grandma, it was just a little too simple and it was bothering me, so I made a couple modifications to it. Instead of having it be all one white card I cut it and put it on a brown card and added some ribbon.
Ok, I almost didn't put this card up cause I REALLY don't like how it turned out. I was totally inspired by a beautiful card my sister in-law, Christina sent us for our anniversary. Well, lets just say hers was WAY better looking and mine looks pretty sad compared to her beautiful one. So I guess that's what I get for copying! Ha! But it is the same colors for the most part, and remember I was saying how my favorite colors were blue, brown, and pink? Well, she used all three of the colors together! And I was so excited that I was inspired to put one together myself! But like I said, it's nothing compared to hers!

Super simple yet a very sweet Valentine card. I hope you can make out the white hearts stamped in the background. I haven't decided for sure who these cards will be for. And I'm sure I will be making more Valentines so I'll have to decide who to send what to. I've been into the simple cards lately, sometimes simple is more. And it's a lot quicker to make too! But I still like experimenting with more detailed cards as well.
Detail of the "A" and the glitter embossed scallop. The brad is Basic Grey's glazed brads Eva collection, I love these brads!

I originally made this one in mind for my little brother in-law, Jacob. I pictured something else in mind for him, but it kinda of ended up differently than the original plan. I'm not sure now, I'm thinking I may give it to my nephew Ezra now.

I first saw these flowers made by my two sister in-laws and just really loved the way they looked! They are actually real easy once you get the folding down and they are lots of fun! And thanks to my sister in-law Christina I was able to make some. She's probably wondering why I haven't sent her punches back to her! *Winks*

I have decided to give the whole blog thing another try. I realize that no matter what people may think or do that I still am me and I still enjoy and love scrapping and just being creative... Be it that I am not as good as so many out there, but I still love doing it. Maybe I'm not the best but I can still have fun and enjoy it and not worry about what other people think. We all are different and I am learning to like who I am, and how I do things, and what I like. I want to do things that are me and not someone else. And if I seem to do things or "copy" someone else, it is because I am inspired by them!
I Have a tendency to be somewhat of a perfectionist and if it's not perfect to my standards I worry other people will be critical of it. I am always growing in my tastes and likes. As I know we all are. I need to except me and not worry whether someone is going to like the way I do things.
I LOVE my two sons SO VERY MUCH! They are everything to me. So you'll see a lot of them on here as I scrap them the most! Children are SO MUCH FUN to scrap, they bring such character, joy, energy to everything! It's amazing how much a child can light up a page! But as I have named my blog "Scrapping. Photos. Life." you will see many other things I enjoy doing and maybe things that I will venture into, may be scary, but just bare with me! As this is a new day, a new hour, a new beginning...
So here I go!!
