Some of you may know that in September 2008, Creating Keepsakes Magazine named me Scrapbooker of the Year. The award came as a complete shock! I never thought that what began as an activity to excite myself again to scrapbook my own photos, and not just for scrapbook manufacturing companies, started an adventure that is hard to describe!
I have worked for Scrapbooking companies, on and off for about 10 years, but the thought of publishing pages that I enjoyed doing, that were my style, and expressed my deepest feelings, was something I had not shared with the public. Now here I am, a year and a half later, sharing with you all the little pieces of my life, and displaying that piece of creativity that has been instilled in my soul since I was young.
Creating Keepsakes has only published a few of those pages that inspired them to choose me for this award, and so as an exciting series to my blog, (and celebration that I am now updating my blog regularly) I thought I would share one of these pages with you each day for the next little while. What do you think?
Now after winning the contest, some friends were very congratulatory, and other friends were mean and belligerent. My pages are what they are ... SIMPLE! I am so grateful for the great scrappers who inspire me to explore many different techniques and help me find my creative spark. I hope you all know that the fact that they would pick me ... out of all of those talented scrapbookers still blows me away to this day. I hope that these few pages will inspire you!
This page was about my husband's work softball team he played on, the summer after we got married. We didn't have any kids then so I was able to go to almost every game. Although most of the products included on this page are no longer sold in stores, it still is one of my most favorites pages!
