A Scrappy Extravaganza

During a semester like this one, 2 completed pages in one week qualifies as an extravaganza! Both are with Studio Calico's March kit.

This first one is about headbands. Now, I'm sure some of you might be wondering why on earth I want a scrapbook page about headbands. It's not like I'll hold this page in my wrinkly hands many years from now and weep. Or at least, I don't think so.

I just enjoy making pages where I experiment with design, and enjoy pretty pictures of beautiful things. Breaks me out of my creative box, and I love that!

And my great-grandchildren will know that I liked headbands.

This next one is about banangrams and my husband's love for them. But on a deeper level, it's about how cute I think it is that he loves this game, and how I should really be more giving and play with him more. And in some ways, the headband page above is really about confidence and being "me."

Our great-grandchildren will probably ask, "What are bananagrams?"

I hope each and every one of you has a relaxing, enjoyable weekend! I'm looking forward to dinner out tonight, lunch with just me and the hubby tomorrow, and a birthday party tomorrow afternooon.

What topics do you like to scrapbook?
