i scrap

The reason I started scrapping was mainly to preserve my sons childhood memories, but also as a much needed creative outlet. I have always been a crafty person, ever since I was a child myself. It is so rewarding for me everytime my son pulls out an album to browse and says, 'I remember that!'. Love that! I also love to make stuff for others. Like this sweet little birthday hanging I made for a co-worker friends birthday yesterday. Made with some of my favorite things (Teresa Collins Celebrate line and Blingage Stamps!) She loved it!

Another thing I have enjoyed, is being part of a circle journal group and also a tag swapping group. The scrapbooking community is so generous, creative and welcoming, As I have found out by being in this tag swapping group. This time around, our theme was 'Secret Garden'. Here are my versions of that theme::
Here are all the versions that I recieved in return. Everyone had such a different, creative, beautiful version of that theme. Love them all!

The next tag swap will be a Summer theme. So excited! I love Summer!

Being creative is my obsession, my hobby. It makes me happy, very happy. Which is the reason i scrap.
