Frightfully Delightful!

 i'm so glad you stopped by!
 i am releasing my first ever collaboration mini-kit with sue (falstaff folly) today!
i had the most amazing time working with her, she is a terrific designer and scrapper and i am certainly happy with what we came up with!
you can visit her blog for more on the story of how this mini-kit came to be and of course to be inspired!

as promised, here is our halloween- themed kit: not so creepy crawly or ultra spooky but somewhat more
 'frightfully delightful'

pick it up to scrap all of your halloween photos or like me to make cards like this one with it.

we hope you like it and please don't forget to leaves us a link to your creations - sue and i would most definitely love to see how you used it!

my layouts for the week:

thanks for visiting and kind comment!
 i wish you a wonderful week!


Scrap therapy

people are always curious of my reasons for doing so many 'me' pages.
it was not alway like that - when i first started scrapbooking i covered mostly trips, birthdays, events and the like but as time went on i discovered that i loved scrapping more about my heart and soul, about my emotions and my life journey and about the every day little things. i am not big on writing so my layouts take the place of a journal. a visual journal that is.

all the 'all about me' layouts i create give me the opportunity explore feelings and get to know myself a little bit better. it's like putting my emotions on a page and turning them into art! i think it's a great way  to combine a passion and creative outlet with some therapy, don't you think?

been busy scrapping my heart out for sure!

here are last week's pages:

and my freebie today is to encourage you to do some pages about yourself - yes, some scrap therapy!!

repeated lines: this is me
