I am sitting here today trying to work on deadlines and writing assignments. I must be honest with you, when the weather is so lovely outside I really find it difficult to finish my tasks. So, I turned my thoughts to layouts that I had done in the past during the past. It has been a few years since I have done the above one but the reason why I scrapbook remains the same. To be creative, have fun, and share some wonderful stories & pictures. Scrapbooking and art can't be forced. You have to feel the creativeness, do the work, and enjoy it! With this I think of this quote by William Rose Benet (1886- 1950),
"I like to think how Shakespeare pruned his rose,
And ate his pippin in his orchard close."
Take time this summer to do some scrapbooking, but make sure to love what you are doing and enjoy your summer!

It is fun to alter just about anything, but I really have fun playing with articles of babies clothing because they are so tiny. The textures of material are quite easy to adhere whatever you feel like adding to your project. With these baby shoes I had fun using an assortment of flowers from Prima marketing Inc.I started by sewing on metallic beads to the heal of the shoe.
Next I used a glue gun to glue the ribbon around the edge of the shoe. At the ends of the ribbon I formed a loop to give the ribbon a pretty finish.
I then used thin gauged wire to wire metal beads, jade beads, and flowers so the I could easily place and attach them to the shoes. To fill in spots, I used smaller flowers and stuck them on with glues dots. I then added a tag and a little bit of gauze for presentation.
These are so fun to make for a baby shower table center piece or a present. So take a look around your house today and see what you can alter!
Keep on Scrappin’
