Create Memories.

Isn't that what taking photos is all about? Have you been slow on the scrapbooking/stampbooking? Today I am encouraging you to break out those albums, blow off the dust and find those GORGEOUS photos. It's time to scrapbook and why not incorporate your fav stamps too and make it stampbooking?

Today's layout was my creative mess. I had all these FAB embellies and paper...not to mention cute pics that were just dying for a layout. I literally found the paper and the photos and just laid them on the table while I found some matchy match stuff. Do you see those photos? That is how I laid them on the paper when I was searching for the other things--I just left them as is. Have you ever done that? That is what I call my creative mess. I {heart} it!

A few close ups for you too...

Ali, I love your work. I am a "lurker" so I don't post often, but I visit frequently. I saw this post when you originally posted it, but wasn't able to post my versions until recently. I have two pages using this layout...
This one I made awhile ago to put in a baby scrapbook for my husband's friend:
And this one I made last week:
Thanks for the inspiration!
