Memory Keeping Monday: "Better Together" Scrapbook Layout

I'm back today with another page to share for "Memory Keeping Monday"!

I have had these pictures sitting on my scraproom desk for over a year.  Just about everytime I'm in there I saw them, and really didn't know what I wanted to do with them. Truthfully, there's not too much of a story behind them. They are just cute selfies I took with the boys while we were waiting for Jason on a ride at Disney. I think that was part of what was blocking me from using them... I typically feel drawn to scrapbook something because it's a story I want to tell, and journaling is always an important piece of my pages. Here I really had nothing to say except for the Who, What, Where, When, Why of the photo. But, finally, inspiration hit and I was able to come up with this page, and I love it! It's also important to me because they are pictures that I'm in, which doesn't happen all that often either.

I used a December 2017 Page Maps sketch for my design, and stuck to it pretty closely. My papers are from Close to my Heart's Gimme Some Sugar paper pack. I love that woodgrain piece - if I could I'd probably buy a hundred of it! (You can never have too much woodgrain!) And the light turquoise piece behind the photos is the ombre watercolour piece from the Adventure Fundamentals paper pack. For the embellishments I used a mix from the Better Together Complements (which look like they're currently unavailable), retired Our Story Complements and Bitty Sparkles.

I'm on a roll and feel like I've finally hit a groove making pages! This page came together in one night, which is almost a record for me! (I am an extremely slow scrapper...)

Have you made any pages recently? I'd love for you to share, I always love checking out other people's work!

Thanks for stopping by!
