Some pages for the book

Back in August, I headed up to Charlotte, NC for a Creating Keepsakes scrapbook convention.  I went ALL ALONE, and it was wonderful.  I stayed in the Westin hotel right next door to the convention center.  The hotel was lavish, the food was fabulous and the time alone was so.very. needed.  I took classes all day, shopped in the vendor faire, and attended a crop in the evenings.  I met some really sweet ladies,  but it was so nice to go alone.

Each of the classes were loaded up with information and product, so I came home with almost 25 complete layouts and supplies to last forever!  I was introduced to some great new scrapbook companies, and some new techniques.  I can't wait to attend next year.  Maybe they will schedule one in Atlanta! Attending this event inspired me to get back to work preserving our family memories. It also reminded me just how much I love to get crafty and creative.  Here are some of my completed layouts from the convention and over past couple of months.  Be warned...I am not very good at photographing scrapbook pages. 

This page was inspired by a PageMaps sketch.  The patterned paper is from Creative Memories.
This is one of my FAVORITE pages from the convention.  The design is by Technique Tuesday using Ali Edwards stamps.  The title is Life if Beautiful with You.

A mix of papers and embellishments from my stash.

I just had to throw in a card.  :)

 Thanks for looking!


  1. I love the "clean" look of your designs. Not over-blinged & seeping with lace, dollies, fabric,& humongous flowers. Thanks for sharing you work. I look forward to seeing more!!! :)

  2. So pretty, Rachael!
