How Do You Choose...

what to scrap?  Are you a chronological scrapper, an event scrapper, a moment scrapper, or some combination of those?  When I started I really wanted to be a chronological scrapper.  It somehow fit my idea of order.  The only problem with that, as I discovered, is that it is not humanly possible to start at the beginning and "catch up."  I'm always taking new photos so I'm always behind.  So then I started scrapping events.  But I realized that I was missing out on some of the truly wonderful moments in my life and my son's life.  So now, I guess I'm a combination scrapper in that I scrap whatever it is I feel like scrapping at the moment.  Sometimes, I just look through my iPhoto library and see if any photos speak to me.  Sometimes, I see a great kit and it inspires me to think about that photo I know I have that would be perfect for the kit.  That's what happened on Saturday, which is new release day over at Sweet Shoppe Designs.  I saw this wonderful kit by Shawna Clingerman:

When I saw this kit, I immediately thought of the pics I took of my son on the first day of school this year.  I still hadn't scrapped them, but this made me want to.  Here's the layout I made:

I came up with the composition one day when I was out.  I was bored and without my laptop when I started imagining scrapbook layouts.  I grabbed a pencil and some paper and started sketching.  I made a template from one of those sketches and used it for this layout.  I am offering it to you as a freebie just for visiting.  If you use the template and post your layout anywhere, I'd love it if you'd leave me a link in the comments so that I can see the layout and leave you some love.

Have a great day and keep scrapping life, one dream at a time!
