Today I

Haven't done this in a long while (since June 2009!
Here it goes....

Outside my window... it's raining again!
I am thinking.... I have to pack for my trip to NYC woot woot!
I am thankful for... Summer Break and being able to travel this year
From the kitchen... Chicken marinating in lemon and garlic, to go on the  BBQ for dinner
I am wearing... comfy black cotton pants and a black t shirt
I am creating...12x12 scrapbook Layouts for a class at
I am going... to Justin's ceramics class exhibit at the museum
I am reading... Storm of Swords, book 3 of Game of Thrones
I am hoping... to have nice weather in NYC next week
I am hearing... Bryan chatting with his friends on Skype while, Justin laughing at some funny videos
Around the house... laundry, dinner, dishes, and scrapbooking of course
One of my favorite things... my new Sony cybershot super small and super cute, I can take it everywhere!
A few plans for the rest of the week: getting everyone ready for our vacation next week

Happiness is...

...having all my photos and all my scrapping supplies organized which makes it super easy to put together a quick page like this one.  It is made entirely with older scraps of paper left over from other projects. I like to keep all those scraps of paper in 12x12 plastic drawers organized by color, and every once in a while I like to challenge myself to make a LO with only scraps. This particular page was made from the green drawer. The photos are from 1997, that adorable 3 year old boy in the photo is now almost 17!  The design of the page was inspired by a page in Designing with Recipes Book
 made for Mother LOAD class at

Why do you Scrap?

the photo says it all for me, it was taken almost 4 years ago on my son's 10th birthday. He loves to look back on the pages i have made of him and his baby book especially on his birthday. you don't know where you're going until you know where you've been...
All the embellishments are symbolic here, clocks and butterflies because time flies, these moments are so fleeting, I remember this moment like it was yesterday...
loosely based on sketch 92 from Got Sketch
