My rules in a scrap page!

What are your rules when it comes to scrapbooking , do each of your pages share a pattern or do your pages match on each side?

My rules include: My photos must be mounted at least once if not 2 , 3 times! must have dimension and color must accent the other colors in the page.
Each page or set of pages (side by side) must contain a title , although I never understood the importance of journaling I am learning what are great ways to bring journaling in.Each page side by side must match or contain the same on both sides.
I love to scrapbook and often wonder what are other peoples goals in a scrappage!

My scrapbook

I was working on my daughters scrapbook and I am often at a loss on what to journal or write especially for opening pages of an album I want them to be great! Well I thought that I wanted to make it meaninful so i used the song from Tim Mcgraw's new movie Flicka - My little girl! i thought it was great !!! I am not sure that there is a proper way to scrapbook but I so love it and really want my pages to be awesome and meaningful at the same time!

Verse 1:
Gotta hold on easy as I let you go.
Gonna tell you how much I love you,
though you think you already know.
I remember I thought you looked like an angel wrapped in pink so soft and warm.
You've had me wrapped around your finger since the day you were born.

Your beautiful baby from the outside in.
Chase your dreams but always know the road that'll lead you home again.
Go on, take on this whole world.
But to me you know you'll always be, my little girl.

Verse 2:
When you were in trouble that crooked little smile could melt my heart of stone.
Now look at you, I've turned around and you've almost grown.
Sometimes you're asleep I whisper "I Love You!" in the moonlight at your door.
As I walk away, I hear you say, "Daddy Love You More!".

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse 3:
Someday, some boy will come and ask me for your hand.
But I won't say "yes" to him unless I know, he's the half
that makes you whole, he has a poet's soul, and the heart of a man's man.
I know he'll say that he's in love.
But between you and me. He won't be good enough!

Stamp Camp Preparation

So sunday is my brave attempt to be a Super Stamp Demo! I will be teaching 6 willing indivials to craft 15 different cards in 5 hours how fun is that ? Brave most say. Well I have spent close to a week figuring out the exacts and getting my so called example card crafted and I beleive I am a genius! jj! I have one more card to make and I am just stuck!This card has to be my favorite card of them all! He is good old frosty with my 1st attempt at embossing with a snow globe belly! Of coarse filled with blue hair gel and a touch of glitter! The stamp world will sleep a little better tonight knowing shana has embossed! Well My challange to myself and all of you out there is to sit down and make a list of the things you want to learn to do and make an attempt each week to try to learn a new talent! This week after my camp is said and done I will be making an attempt to learn a new technique on my own! so this week I am taking a waterfall card challange , will let you know and post a picture once I have followed through!

Hi all!
My name is Shana and I have been a stampin' up Demonstrator for just over 9 months, I completely adore and embrace the serenity I find in stamping and being creative. I am also a full time wife and mother and this keeps me on my toes. In addition to stamping I completely and totaly enjoy to scrapbook. I host many events, clubs and classes I plan to share on a daily basis either a thought or a project that I have accomplished or created. I hope that you will gain serenity and inspiration from reading my blog.May you and yours be blessed during the up and coming holiday season.
