"...and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than sould can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)"

-E.E. Cummings

New Pages! :)

I have some pages that I love to share with you today! :D I just started a new scrapbook to put some of my favorite high school pictures in, and so far I love it. I hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I enjoyed creating them.

The first page is meant to give a little information about myself. This page is both for others, and for myself in the future so that I can remember who I was. :)

For the title (my name) I wrote the letters on notebook paper and then carefully tore them out to add a little texture. Then I decorated them with some glitter paint.

Below the picture of myself, I added one of my favorite quotes. I used these fantastic glitter alpha stickers for more texture and interest, then hand wrote the rest on notebook paper, tearing the edges once more.  This quote is from North of Beautiful, by Justina Chen-Headley. :)

To  the right side, I added three pictures that I took before making this page. The first is a stack of my favorite books, the second is a picture of my pen on a piece of paper, and the third is a paper crane that I made. The inscriptions read, "a reader" "a writer" and "a dreamer". Somehow, I can't find the picture I took of the full page, but when I do I will add it to this post. :)

The next page is made of pictures from my senior trip. What a fun day! :) A tradition my friends and I have is taking pictures of ourselves jumping... How could I resist?

The letters are fun foam stickies that I found at Wal-Mart. I made the flower embellishment myself, and I finally found a place to use the little butterflies left from other projects. Yay! Here's a close up. :)

This next page has a picture from my homecoming that I love.

Something I've been having a lot of fun with is making my own embellishments, and these butterflies are no exception. I found a wonderful scrapbook 12x12 paper with butterflies of all shapes, colors, and patterns, and have been cutting them out as needed. Love! :)

This is the last page I have to share for now. :) These are my aunts' horses, whom I love dearly.

I wanted a little personalization, so I added the horses' names in small alpha stickers on a border I cut from a random background on a pack of alpha stickers. :)

Thanks for looking! Lately I've been having lots of ideas for LO's, and with an upcoming trip to the beach there are sure to be more posts! :)

The First Post: The First Pages! :)

So, this is my very first blog post! I'm pretty excited! Mosty because I love sharing creativity with people. This post has several pages in it, and they are some of the first scrapbook pages I made. I love them because I learned a lot from them! I think my skill has developed more since I made these particular pages, and my mind has been opened to new scrapbooking possibilities, but I will always cherish each page.

This is the first page in my scrapbook. I love this picture so much. :)

This picture is a page I made to commemorate my first movie date ever! 

 Here are a few pictures of some of the details I really love on this page. I'm so glad I saved our movie tickets!

I also really love these amazing stickers and the 3-D butterfly embellishment.

The next page I want to share with you is one of my all time favorites. I love it so much!

These are two of my favorite pictures of us togeteher. :) Also, I love the dried flowers. I added them because he brought them to me one day for no reason except to let me know he had thought of me. Such a catch! ;)

This is the final page I want to post for now. I hand wrote a copy of the poem "i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)" as it's one of our favorites.

Thanks so much for looking at my my pages! I hope you enjoyed them! If you have any questions about products used, just let me know. :)
