“If you see something that moves you, and then snap it, you keep a moment.” – Linda McCartney

I am not one of these people that take pictures and leave them in my computer.
I choose my favorite ones and have them processed.
I have a huge drawer that I keep filling with more and more photos.
I mean to scrap them right away but you know how it is...
Every once in a while I reach in and grab one.

EXHIBIT A


EXHIBIT B


The other day I was having love in my heart for these two wonderful people.
They both bring me joy that is hard to put into words.
At least for me
Writing is not my forte.
I work hard at it.
The more intense the feeling, the more difficult to describe.
Because I want to get it right.
Words limit me.
Therefore I scrap!

If you could say it in words there would be no reason to  paint ~Edward Hopper~






I used paint chips for the journaling and the circles.
I sprayed a finish on the words to keep it from smearing.
The flower is a fun find from TJ Maxx.
Hard to resist a  book like this for $3.99.
Seems like a doable craft for the little kids when they come  visit.
Unable to resist, I tried one.
Love the way it came out.
Notice how both girls are wearing the same colors!
No way I could resist using the flower here.
I did add sprinkles of white gel pen to lighten it up.


While I was feeling goosies all over for my wonderful daughter, I was inspired to make another page.
This one is a little undisciplined!
But I love it non the less.
I knit a beautiful head scarf  and asked for some photos of her modeling it.
I hardly notice the scarf when I look at her beautiful face.



So there you have it.
Now I must go to my next project.
(after I Daven, clean up, eat, finish work,etc...)
Here's a preview of what I am working on.


Wonder what I can do with that messy old seat...
Keep you posted!

Hi .. I'm visiting from The Perfect Pair blog party :) Your scrapped pages are gorgeous. I love how you used the paint chips. Good for you for processing your favourite shots. My mom does it and it's so nice to be able to look at her photo albums! I have to get some done.
