First, I wanted to say thank you to everyone for your lovely comments and thoughts and prayers last week. Everything went really well and I was back at work yesterday!
Last Monday, Tracy tagged me in this fun blog hop. I was supposed to post this Monday, but I got totally confused on my days. I was kind of out of it Saturday and Sunday and didn't have to work Monday, which just totally threw me off.
But anyway...Tracy does rock, and if you haven't checked out her blog, you should. She blogs every.single.day. And makes the most beautiful cards that feature her awesome Copic coloring skills.
And on to the hop...
First I talk about my blog:
I started my blog in 2010. No one I knew scrapbooked, and I wanted to share my layouts with other people who liked to scrap. And I ended up meeting the best group of ladies, I love reading their blogs and I look forward to talking to them through comments and email!
What do I create? What am I working on right now?
Right now, I'm working on lesson plans for the upcoming school year. Which isn't too fun or creative!
But mostly, I work on scrapbooking, everything from big moments and holidays...
Project Life and I love creating weekly layouts that way.
I also love creating home decor pieces, and made all of the decor for my October wedding.

How does my creative process work?
It really depends. Sometimes I see a paper that I love, other times I fall in love with a sticker sheet or a set of embellishments. But usually it revolves around the pictures or the things that I have from an event. This layout was all about showcasing my "Bride to Be" sash. I had my heart set on having a sash for my bachelorette party, so when my bridesmaids gave me this one, I knew I had to make a scrapbook layout around it.
Why do I write or create what I do?
Mostly I love the actual act of creating. Its fun and relaxing to play with my paper and scissors and adhesive. But I also love having all of these memories on documented for us and for our future family.
Here is where I tag others to play along...
I totally forgot to email everyone to see who wanted to play along. Seriously, those pain meds did a number on my memory (apparently as I was being wheeled out of surgery, I asked when they were going to start it!) So if you want to play along, let me know and I will tag you to play!
Well, I'm off to the second day of teacher prep...aka the day before the first day of school...where I'm going to be surrounded by lots and lots of paper, but nothing scrapbook related!
What are you up to lately?
