Scrapping fun to Share

Well, I think I have finally broken through my slump. I have gotten several pages made, and I am feeling a bit of an urge to craft. The first page I am sharing today is the one that I made for the Master Forger's  2nd challenge on the Counterfeit Kit challenge blog; 
How do you like to spend your weekend? 

Challenge #2 is "Weekend time"
Interpret that however you like. 
I must admit, I was a bit stumped with this one (it's always the easy ones that get us, right?) I finally just started flipping through my pictures, and came up with some pictures from a few years ago of the twins at the playground. It was a little bittersweet to scrap these, as they are now "too old" to play on the playground like they used to, but it was something that I did every year with them when it would first start to get warm outside. These photos may actually be from the last time I took them to a playground, now that I think about it. I almost dreaded it back then, because it would be so hard to get them to leave. It's a good lesson to slow down and appreciate those moments...because they are so fleeting, and I surely miss them. So here is the layout that I did to commemorate those sweet moments at the park:

a look at the embellishments:

I also made a layout for the first challenge on the Counterfeit Kit challenge blog:
Challenge #1 is I LOVE PARIS
  • WE all love Paris. capture the mood of Paris in your layout/card/tags. Use iconic buildings from Paris (need I list them?).Add love hearts, lace, whatever you want.
  • I’ve added some ideas to the Pinterest page.
  • They don’t have to feature photos of Paris!

My answer to to this challenge was Epcot France photos: it was the perfect excuse to use some OOOLD Eiffel Tower paper in my stash , which I cut up and used pieces of to embellish my layout:

a closer look:

I love that I have been able to use lots of bits and pieces from this month's kit on these two layouts:

Thanks for stopping by today! I have more scrappy pages that I've done, and can't wait to share them with you! See you back here tomorrow with more scrappy fun!


  1. Both layouts are fantastic :) Love the bits and pieces used and such cute photos of the girls :)

  2. I really like both the layouts with all the small lovelies from your kit - which is adorbs by the way! Great that you found a way to record those moments with your twins and the reflection on the passage of time you wrote here on the blog is lovely - hope that's what you recorded in your journalling! Lovely to hear that you have your mojo back. It's never fun ;-(


Thank you for your comments, they make my day!
