This one's for you Ari

Yesterday I was talking to my husband about this blog and how much fun I was having making new things for it and getting comments. But there has been one thing that I haven't quite figured out how to do and that has been creating my own digital scrapped background. I have never really done much digi-scrapping {who am I kidding, I've have NEVER done any}but I have learned bits and pieces since creating this blog and have designed some of my own little logos and stuff. Anyway, I digress, as I was telling my husband this, he gave me the idea to just piece together a layout from my own scrapbook paper and scan it in to the computer. I actually thought that that was a decent idea, I even kind of knew what measurements needed to be where on the page. So, last night I sat down at my desk after finding some paper that I thought would make a cute background. As I was piecing it together, I thought that it was actually turning into a really cute scrapbook page. I ended up totally forgetting about creating a blog background and started scrapping a page for my sister's album. I'm not entirely sure if I have completed it or not {there's a bit of space at the top that I don't if I want filled or not, I think the pattern itself might be enough to fill the negative space}. But all in all, I feel that it turned out pretty decent. Strange what things can turn out when you are trying to accomplish something entirely different!

I love this picture of my sister and me and I call her AriBug, so I thought the butterflies were a nice touch! Let me know what you think...



  1. Uber cool!!! I love anything with flowers on it. The color palette is wonderful! I just emailed you with some info. :)

  2. Lovely layout. This came out wonderful! I love butterflies so I'm biased! lol I think those butterflies added just the right finishing touch. I like that ribbon that goes across the page on top...I need to try that on one of my layouts! Thanks for the inspiration...


Please leave me a comment, a suggestion or share your own ideas! I love hearing from other scrappers. If you prefer to not leave a public message, you can email me at I look forward to hearing from you!
