Getting back to my roots…

No, not those roots…although my gray hairs are starting to show again..hehe! Nope, I mean scrapbooking. That’s where my crafting journey began and I miss it so much so I decided to take time to do what I love.

Kristie and I are both going to try to do at least one layout a week and post them on Saturday’s, so be sure to visit her too!

It’s been SO long since I have sat down to do a layout, I sure hope it’s like riding a bike, that you never forget how! LOL!

I thought since it’s been so long that I would start super, super simple. I’m going to work on our Kung Fu album and it is going to be very basic, just to get me going again.

I must admit I’m a bit intimidated to post my layouts as I do not follow most current trends where scrapbooking is concerned. I like my layouts simple and showing off LOTS of photos. But I will share them as I love them and that’s all that counts! I truly do have a soft spot in my heart for scrapbooking and it feels so good to get back to it!!

So here’s what I’ve gotten done so far for this first of hopefully many, Scrappin’ Saturdays!

I'm with you, Danni! Stick to your style, and forget the current trends. You've got a winning combo going on. I can't wait to see more.

This is a great layout! Nothing wrong with simple I think. Sometimes choosing the embellishments can get quite overwhelming. I haven't made a scrapbook page in months. I have so many photos that I want to scrap too. Since it is a long weekend, I think I will try and manage a layout or two myself. :) Your little boy is a cutie btw.

Enjoy your weekend Danni!

Oh my goodness, you are so good to go back to your scrapbooking. I love it too and need desperately to get back at it. You may be the one that gets me going again if you start to post these wonderful front covers and layouts. I love the black and the white and red.....just perfect Danni! Thank-you so much for reminding me of what started all this creativity!
