Scrapping Mommy Memories

Hi SOC ladies!  I am excited to share my first two-page layout of 2015: my family 's trip to Houston in honor of my God-sister's graduation from her Master's program a few years ago.  It was one of the last trips we took with my parents before my mom passed away, and I recently got the urge to start documenting our travels together.  

I chose my 11" x 14" Smash Book for this layout.  The biggest challenge was pulling the different colors together, so I used very plain background papers and focused on 3 key colors: pink to match baby girl's headband and blue and green to compliment the graduate's dress.


 We had an amazing weekend celebrating my God-sister's accomplishment, from the ceremony to her wonderfully planned party.  Everyone, from the grown-ups to the kids laughed and danced their hearts out!  It was a great weekend that brought her loved ones together to wish her well.


I always like to add customized accents to my projects.  This time I played around with inking and stamping canvas butterfly shapes to top off the pages.


Thanks for letting me share a bit of my memorable trip with you!

Supplies used: Patterned paper by Heidi Swap and Close to my Heart; Paper flowers and pom pom trim by Recollections, Stamp by Unity Stamp Co; Smash Book by K & Company.

Thanks for dropping by!

Hugs,
 Kimberly

    1. DK, my daughter suggested I "write" on the butterflies, so I thought stamping would look good.

  5. Kimberly: I just got a good idea from you. My Mom has Alzheimer's and we used to take a lot of trips together. I have a SMASH book I haven't used for 2 years that I can document our travels together. Thanks so much!

    1. Boumaz, if I inspire just one person with my work, then, I did what I set out to do. Can't wait to see what you create!
