10 Things I LOVE!

Here are the pages that my scrapbooking group did in February. My theme was "10 Things I LOVE." I challenged them to make these pages about themselves....and not to use their kids, pets, family, etc. for their "LOVE" items. I can't wait to find pictures to fill this in.

I think this will be a set of pages that my grandchildren can look back on and know something about me, other than the usual.....I love being a mom, I had a good sense of humor, I was opinionated...blah blah blah....

I asked my daughter and husband to offer up some suggestions to "things I love" and I was pleasantly surprised by their answers....

Hubby gave me:

Taking pictures, my swimming pool, and planting flowers.....

My daughter gave me:

bear hunting and soccer......

I had a pretty big list and this is what my journaling says:

I love so many things....
I love bear hunting; I
love tropical vacations;
I love stamping and
taking pictures; I love
watching soccer games
and growing flowers;
I love bow hunting and
beautiful doors on houses;
I love my swimming pool
and candles; I love life!

Stamps: Short Order Alphabet & Numbers; Unfrogettable (i love); Watercolor Vine Wheel
Ink: Mellow Moss Jumbo Ink Cartridge; Mellow Moss & River Rock Ink
Cardstock: River Rock; Taken With Teal; Soft Sky
Accessories: Stamp a ma jig; River Rock Double Stiched Ribbon; Vintage Brads; Chipboard; 1" & 3/4" Circle Punches

River Rock - 1 @ 7 1/2" x 5 1/2"; 1 @ 2 3/4" x 3 1/2"; 9 @ 3 3/4" x 3 3/4"; 1 @ 1" x 12"
Taken with Teal - 1 @ 1 1/4" x 12"

Make sure you use the jumbo wheel before you cut the cardstock up - makes things much easier!!! I rubbed my chipboard in my River Rock ink pad and then used the wheel on it. I also used a Mellow Moss Marker on the Unforgettable stamp that says "have i toad you lately that i love you?" and I just used the "i love" part on my title strip behind the "10 THINGS."

Awesome idea! Thanks for blogging all your ideas. If I lived in your neck of the woods, I would come for a class!
