Coming back

It's been awhile...a long while. Life as wonderful as it is, is also crazy, or maybe that's what makes it so wonderful? Anyhow, I got wrapped up in life and family, and took a little break from scrapbooking. I was still creating memories, and still capturing them through a picture, but I wasn't taking the time to document them, I wasn't worrying so much about getting that one perfect shot...and I loved it...but I also missed the creating, and the documenting the stories. So, I'm picking up the old tape runner, and getting back on the wagon...just going to take it a little easier this time, no design teams, no stress, just for the fun and the memories. :)

I recently joined Clique Kits..so far I am in love with these kits. Its a great way for me to slowly dip my feet back into the world of lovely and new products, especially since I have no idea what is out there anymore. They also have some fun challenges, which has been another perfect way for me to get back into the groove. I created this layout using the January kit, and the fun sketch that they recently posted on their blog.

I switched it up some, instead of a circle, I cut this adorable mosaic heart from one of the papers...I think it was Simple Stories. I kept it pretty simple, and pretty straight on with the sketch otherwise. Love the way it turned out...but even more, I love that I am getting back to documenting the wonderful life and memories with the ones I love. :)


If you're still here, thanks for sticking around. :) I am going to try and get back in the habit of posting at least once a week, but again, no stress this time around..what will be, will be! ;)

Enjoy your weekend, and take time to create something you love!
