I am loving my new camera! My hubby gave it to me as a combined anniversary, mother’s day, birthday gift. The pictures on this page showcase some of the first photos taken. I got the camera out and one boy decided to play dead and the other decided to play the conquerer. At first, I struggled with color, but then I just jumped on the new 2018-2020 InColors and I think it worked out pretty well!
I am sure you have noticed how much I absolutely love the Ink Smooching Technique! It just adds so much to a project and it is so easy to do. I have shared a step-by-step tutorial on ink smooching and watercolor background, you can download it now by CLICKING HERE.
I tend to shy away from journaling as I am not a big fan of my handwriting, but I force myself to do it! I NEVER write straight but I have learned to embrace it! It is me, my style and I want my boys to remember all aspects of me. Handwriting is a lost art…handwritten letters are practically extinct, replaced by an electronic text or post. One of the most valued things my dad left behind was a handwritten poem…so, embrace it! It means a lot to those you love!
My boys make me smile every day! I sure hope that my presentation of them makes you smile too…and motivates you to create memories in scrapbooks.
