I am a member and Published here.



Hello my dear friends it is finally friday. This is the day I do all my errands and clean the house so I can scrapbook during the weekend since I work full time. I consider my self very lucky to have a family that really support me in my hobby. Also to have such a wonderful niece Monica that share her amazing pictures for me to Scrap.

This LO is from my niece last visit to the Magic Butterfly in Hartford,CT. She is so pretty and bubbly I decided to make an album for her birthday. This LO is one of my favorite one. I try to keep it simple so the photo will be the focal points. Most of the supplies are from GCD love that Pattern Paper and I used Watercolors for the flower that I cut out of the PP. Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend.

PS. Beware soon there is going to be a challenge on my blog, with a very nice prize.

Happy Monday

My LO Emotions is out for publication

Hello everyone, Yes it is Monday and just staring the week. For all those that work and also for the SAHM. That means getting up early, coming home tired and also make sure you exercise. I set a goal to scrap a layout per day or at least get caught up during weekends. But some times you get to hooked to scrapping that can affect your personality so here is my Latest LO about my emotions when I scrapbook. I hope you like it and feel me on this!

Journaling reads: This is ME showing my emotions when I scrapbook: 1. CURIOSITY – behavior of exploring, learning or finding out there is some new scrapbooking supplies to play with. 2. HAPPINESS- a state of mind or feeling such of satisfaction, pleasure or joy. Specially when you get new supplies to scrap with. 3. GUILT- emotional experience that occurs when a person realizes or violated a rule. Like when you buy some supplies to scrap you are not allowed to get. 4. EUPHORIA- mental state defined as a sense of great elation and well being. Like when you finished a great LO. 5. LOVE- a single emotion built from two or more feelings. Like when your DH understand the need to get more scrap booking supplies. 6. SURPRISE- brief emotional state that is a result of experiencing an unexpected? event. Like when you get new scrap supplies. 7. GRATITUDE- positive emotion in acknowledgment of a benefit that one has received. You feel thankful of having great memories to scrapbook. 8. SILLY- a state of mind of being playful. like when your DH said you spend too much time Scrapbooking.
