Why I am now a blogger!

Thanks to my bsb (best scrappin' buddy) ever, Nellie, I am a total scrapbook nut now! I am a stay-at-home mom (kindergarten teacher on hiatus) and I am in need for some creative outlets! I really need some practice, so I noticed Nellie competes in different scrapping challenges each week, so here is my first attempt...I know I am NOWHERE near the talent that a lot of these ladies possess, but, Nellie, I hope I make you proud!

The challenge is from This week the challenge was inspired by the movie To Kill a Mockingbird. I first saw this movie when my husband and I were living in Chicago. During the summers, the city would offer free movies in the park. We went to see this one and it was awesome! So fun, to lay on a blanket in the park with your honey, watching a classic movie...with snacks of course (I am an avid eater: see profile pic!). When I thought of this movie, my memories took me to hot summer nights, fireworks, and fun. Here is my card:

Here is what I used:

Paper: making memories (I think)

Ribbon: Offray

Paper Flowers: Colorbok

Buttons: My personal collection!

Metal word fetti: making memories

Letter Stamps: Hodgepodge Alphabet from CTMH

Ink: White Daisy from CTMH

Thanks for letting me play!
