Life is Wonderful!!

It really really is!

Welcome to the Rose Blossom Blog Hop!!  You probably arrived here from Mary's Blog. This blog hop is a big circle so you can just hop from blog to blog until you find your way back here. Today we are going to show you art work from the July Stamp of the Month - Life is Wonderful!



Life can be rough it has a lot of up's and downs. 2011 was not a good year and I was so happy to start a new fresh year in 2012. This past weekend I got into my craft room and got it organized. I really wanted to work on scrapbooking regularly again and so I needed to find out where I was at. I thought I was in 2011 but after all was said and done I washed my hands of it. I have most of it done but decided I would just start fresh with 2012. I tend to scrapbook both now and chronologically so I sat down started my list to work off of for 2012.

My photo's are stored in my computer by month. From there I used to put them into folders of stuff I wanted to scrapbook and I would use that to make a bullet point but yesterday I just sat down and looked at the photos and started my list.

January

  • New Years Eve
February
  • Date night with my daughter
  • silly girls
  • and on and on
Once that was finished I decided what I wanted to scrapbook. I realized I didn't even have a photo from NYE (I told you 2011 was rough) so I found a photo that I liked and noticed the other one where I am gazing out to the future perhaps...anyway I used those and thought that this months stamp of the month could not be any more perfect. So if you are still here reading this I shall stop rambling and show you the artwork!

Side view and some of my journaling. Funny how I know how 2012 is going to turn out so that is how I spun it.
