I Remember...

Perhaps you could argue that all of my scrapbook layouts should fit the title "I Remember". After all, recording memories is one of the main reasons I create layouts. Still, when I read the challenge at ScrapFIT to create a layout with the title "I remember" it really got my creative juices flowing. I had some photos of our first trip to our favorite ice cream parlor last spring (this is an event I always photograph.)

I used CTMH's special double stamp set It's Your Day for all of the stamping and most of the embellishment on this layout.

(Contact me to find out how to get yours!)
I stamped the cardstock to create a base for the large photo mat. Created the striped border by stamping on the pink patterned paper. I even stamped and then cut or punched the text based embellishments including this circle and flag:

and this arrow and these flags:

The title, "I remember" led me to journal not just about our annual first trip to the ice cream store (as my kids call it) but also about my father and grandfather's long-time love for ice cream. This story tells more than the photos do, and I'm glad that I have it recorded so that my kids know they are not the first in this family to have a soft spot for ice cream.

Thanks for the challenge!

  3. This makes me wish I had photos of sitting on the cemetery wall with my mom, grandparents, and uncles, enjoying the first Pat Mitchell's of the season. Great embellishments!
