One of my biggest issues is journaling. My intentions are always well and good...but I get so wrapped up in the creative process that sometimes I forget to journal. Recently I've been creating peek a boo journaling or adding tags. However, I Love the concept of Once Upon a Sketch as it really does force me to journal. The sketch this week (as always) is amazing and the minute I saw it I knew what I wanted to do! Journalling Criteria: This time you need to journal at least 2 SENTENCES on WHEN you started scrapping and WHY?Although I seem to always find inspiration from my beautiful children it was because of my husband that I started scrapbooking and simply put it was because I wanted to record our life together. My first page was of us back in 2006 but I just couldn't get into it ...until 2009 after I had been blessed with children.
For this page I did some stamping using a Kaiser stamp, Prima flowers and bling. Pion paper and various cardstock.
