A special helper makes everything fun!
Hello! I am so glad you stopped by today! If you have been following my blog recently, you know that I attended a crop last week and worked on lots of scrapbook pages. So now I actually have pages to share with you!
My DD#1 likes to make cards and went along with me. She also took her bucket for softball that she has to decorate and return to be used for storing her gear. When we arrived at the crop, one of my former preschoolers helped us carry things inside. His grandma organized the crop and he was there 'helping out' (He informed me that really he was 'in charge' but it was a secret!). We had a great time catching up and he was quite impressed that DD1 was decorating a bucket. His face lit up when she asked if he could help her. They worked together for about 15 minutes, perfectly placing the stickers and decorations. It was so much fun watching the two of them together, and he spent a big part of his time visiting with us and even made a few pictures using some goodies we gave him. It was a great reminder that when we share what we love to do with others, we not only enrich their lives, but bring happiness to our own.
Here is the photo of the busy bees working on the bucket. I blurred the faces as a courtesy to the others there. I think she just might have the most blinged out bucket in the dugout!
I also managed to get a little something accomplished! I completed several of DD#2's scouting and softball pages. I still have a ton to do, but at least the albums have a few more pages in them!
I have found that I have really adopted a less is more style to scrapbooking. I absolutely love the beautiful vintage and full of embellishment pages that I see others creating, but I just keep thinking that for me less is more. I have decided that this specific page is going to get a title, but I also knew that as busy as I've been lately that if it didn't get on here as is, it may never appear! I'm not going to give any instructions for this page-pretty self explanatory...
I am so glad that you took the time to visit. I know that life can get super busy and it means so much that you take time to see what is going on here! Have a wonderful day!!
