Scrapbook Page - SPRING - SCRAP38 Theme

Scrapbooking with the beautiful new Strength and Hope stamp set from Stampin' Up! led me to some spring pages. This page is for the Stampin' Addicts Scrapbook Theme Challenge this week - SPRING has Sprung! SCRAP38 Theme Challenge. If you're looking for some great scrapbook challenges be sure to check out the weekly Sketch, Product, Theme Scrapbook Challenges that just started over there. I'll be hosting the Scrapbook Theme Challenges, at least for a few months, and I'd love to see your pages, too! Just upload them to your blog, online gallery or the Stampin' Addicts gallery (which is free) and then post a link to the Challenge Thread so we can see!

For this page I use a Pretty In Pink base and stamped the wildflowers from Just Believe stamp set in VersaMark ink across the bottom. I also stamped the wildflowers on the Baja Breeze cardstock for the title pieces, which are run through my Big Shot with the Serif Essentials Bigz Dies and then the Polka Dot Textured Impressions Folder.

The ruffled ribbon is Baja Breeze Seam Binding, with a middle thread pulled to ruche and then wrapped around the Scallop Border edged So Saffron.  The butterflies from Strength and Hope stamp set are stamped in So Saffron, Peach Parfait, Baja Breeze and Regal Rose with a Rhinestone Jewel  for each.

I have lots of scrapbooking to catch up on and sometimes I find I really enjoy playing with pictures from 10 or more years ago. I get nostalgic for when my babies were babies and I find that my journaling comes easier and more heartfelt - less stilted and fact based. Although, what do you see missing from this page??! yep - the journaling!
