Hi Everyone! I wanted to post this layout of my sweet Marcus for a number of reasons. First of all the new Vroom paper line rocks and it is so much fun to work with! Secondly, I just love the way that the layout turned out in the end, I just wanted to keep looking at it. But most of all, I wanted to post this layout because it deals with a sensitive issue. I have learned that scrapbooking is not always about rainbows and butterflies but rather it is a venue to document and help work through things in my life that are not always sweet. My Marcus worries about everything (which is part of a diagnosed condition), I have wanted to journal about it for quite sometime but have not found the means. This layout enabled me to do so. At first glance it is fun and happy, only when you pull out the journaling tag do you read the whole story; thoughts of mine that I want Marcus to know. Also, I have sung that same Bob Marley song to him since he was in my tummy and so it was a meaningful way to scrapbook that musical bond between us.
The physical act of scrapbooking relaxes me, has brought me some beautiful friendships and is an outlet to my thoughts, feelings and inspirations. What a great hobby!
I hope that you enjoy the layout!
