Celebrating the Simple Things...

Hello Everyone!  Lynne here today and I want to share with you a layout that I created after having two of my grandsons here with me for three amazing, wonderful, joyful weeks. 

As I have grown older and maybe a wee bit wiser I have come to realize that it really is those simple things that you are doing Right Now that will make the sweetest and longest-lasting memories.  So I created this layout to celebrate some of those little things that I hope my grandboys will remember fondly when I am long gone and they are much, much older!

Like a double scoop of ice cream and a HUGE piece of homemade beef jerky from the Bergen General Store all eaten by the river; Or a dip in Poppa's hot tub every morning after breakfast when the mountain air is still quite chilly.



I also wanted to show you how you can scrapbook a "boy page" using flowers and butterflies and sparkle and it is STILL a boy page!  Susan's paper line makes it easy to impart a bright and cheerful feel to the page without it being too "girly", and I balanced sparkly stickles with some pearlescent stickles to give the page a little more down to earth feel. 

So while you are spending time with your family this Summer take a mental note of some of those simple things you do together so you too can make a memory page for their future.
Cheers
Lynne Mizera

As well as Susan's paper I used the following stamp sets on this layout:

Create Your Day
The Happy Homestead
