My Paper Pumpkin: All About Love Project #4

Why do we scrapbook...

"It was after supper that we all stuffed into the SUV to go to Topsail Beach for a photo shoot with Sandra Lee. Mommy had jeans for the whole family and a sparkly top for Jane.  Jane was camera shy and Jack was getting tired so the perfect family picture never came along… But in reality these pictures reflect us as a family.  We are fun.  We are a little loud.  We definitely love each other but we get on each other’s nerves sometimes.  We don’t strive for perfection and embrace our shortcomings.  I love this picture because we are happy.  All you two wanted was to be in our arms.  And we couldn’t be happier.               June 2013"

...That is why we scrapbook. Tell your story. Share your heart.

This layout is inspired by the following sketch.  I really found it hard to find some inspiration for this project.  My Paper Pumpkin kits are flowing but I really wanted to create another scrapbook page.  When in doubt, go find a sketch...

But that's not all...
I have a group of friends that are the best! They live primarily in Newfoundland but also across the grand country of Canada.  They are a big source of inspiration and learning in this world and I am so thankful for them as I don't believe I would ever have done even a smidge of this without them.


In particular, thank you to Natasha Connolly for the inspiration of the "pierced circles", as well as CoraLee Kilfoy for organizing our February PEP challenges.
Notice that I used the first kit with the "splatter" stamp.  I used white embossing powder to make it LOOK like paint.
Make sure that you play along with the My Paper Pumpkin Challenge!!
