In This Family

I started my journey in paper crafting world with scrapbooking. I got into it way before I get into card making. And for me,  there's different joy in scrapbooking.

I love card making, but when I scrapbook, I could literally feel like my heart is singing. I know, it sounds cheesy, but that's how I feel. I just love, love, love doing it. I think  the main reason would be because I am working on preserving the memories of all the important people in my life. And as I grow older, it's also about remembrance. So many moments, sayings, stuff that I don't want to forget.

I am a bit hesitant in sharing my layout on my blog, because after all my blog focus on card making, but this past few weeks, my heart been wanting to do more scrapbooking and I think since it's also part of who I am, what I love, I should just post it. So, no card for this post, but a layout of my family.

The journaling is inspired by wall plaque "In This House" that I found on Pinterest. For this layout I made it into "In This Family" and of course, I adjusted it to how it goes in my family (you can click on the picture to make it larger if you want to read the journaling). 

This picture is from my visit to Indonesia back in December 2010. Taken on New Year's eve. I love this pic as it capture our family closeness. Yep... to this day, even when we're in our 30's and 40's, we all still like to pile up on the bed and sharing stories, just like we did in our childhood.

And, one thing that I realize.... my scrapbook style totally change from when I first started. :) You can expect more layouts from me, that's for sure. Am a slow scrapbooker, though, so there would always be more cards than layout. Thanks so much for stopping by here.

good for you Vera! I really miss scrapping also! I keep telling myself I need to squeeze more scrapping into my posts, but my scrap style isn't heavy and layered like so many do, so I am hesitant to share!
