When asked to scrap about something mundane that I do, feeding the family came to mind — specifically, Sunday breakfast. Most of the time my family doesn’t eat breakfast together – we all grab something: an egg, a cup of coffee, some cereal, or maybe just a banana. On weekends, for as long as I can remember, we’ve gone out for Sunday brunch. Covid-19 changed that and we were stuck home eating anything that was easy to grab like any other day of the week. At some point I “flipped the switch” and decided to be more grateful for my wonderful kitchen and the fact that I had my entire family with me. I thought about ways I could make Sunday brunch enjoyable again. I just needed to change my mindset. Now waking up early and baking the family a nice brunch has become something I really enjoy and look forward to as much as they enjoy eating it.
For the technique I used basic colored cardstock and added some textures to it.
It’s easy to scrapbook older photos and events when I create my page layouts. Now and then I am challenged to create a page that’s more of a “slice of life” moment describing things in real time. This is one of those pages that focuses, specifically, on where I am in life right now.
One of my favorite spaces in my house isn’t technically indoors. We have a lovely lanai and I think it’s one of the most beautiful and peaceful places for me. It’s where I spent the most time relaxing and a great space to just … breathe.
Today’s layout challenge from Scrap Happy was to find inspiration in a magazine cover. The recent issue with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell inspired me to “scraplift” the cover and design a page with my guy. Designed using Artisan 6 software.
