It’s a cold day and I wasn’t feeling so into scrapbooking another page. The prompt for LOAD didn’t spark anything either – one of those days. I could have scrapped about my school days, since I don’t have kids…but really wasn’t feeling it. I turned to my ongoing projects instead and created an opening page for my love letters album.
Still very simple and clean, but gasp – no sewing today! I enjoyed using the pink background paper from my designs in my CatScrap shop - a different kind of look with the grey cardstock. But my favorite little bit is the punched heart with the word sticker “letters” in the corner.
Guess I couldn’t help but add a bright red heart! LOL. Not to mention those October Afternoon stickers, tags, and quotes are super useful.
This page will be going into an album I recently started, to keep the cards and letters my husband and I give each other.

Sometimes it’s a chaotic mix, but always beautiful and true. Even the simplest, most direct proclamation serves a purpose. Our emotional declarations mean so much, even if we can’t express in words how much… here is a record of our exchanges… our love…
