Just us - Ruby Rock-It

Hello my friends! Yesterday it was my turn to share on Ruby Rock-It's blog "why" I scrap ... I think my layout says it all: I scrap because some photos and memories "touch" me and I want to hold on to that feeling, I scrap because I want to preserve certain memories for my kids for when they're older and last but definitely not least I scrap because I need the creative outlet, I just love to play with papers and everything that comes with it! And that's what this layout is all about: the memory, the photo that touches my heart, the creative part: 

Because I always love to combine different designs and collections I decided to do just that for this page. Therefore I needed a subdued background and chose a kraft one. For the circle background, the title and the funky circles I used my Silhouette Cameo and for the rest of the rest of the page I used many different punches.  

On the tag there's some hidden journaling with a personal message from me to my son and husband.

The words and expressions were cut from one of the sheets from the "Kinda Krafty" collection: 

Fiskars was so generous to send us, the design team, several of their punches to work with. I got a  fantastic 1/2" star punch and this awesome 2 1/2" branch out lever punch: 

This is it for today. Hope you like it!
