Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Scrapbook SKetch Challenge: Cherry Blossom Awesomeness


Good morning and Happy Monday!  What a beautiful Easter Sunday, the weather was perfect and we enjoyed the rest of our family trip to Hershey, PA and then headed home to get ready for the week.  It's time for this month's Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog scrapbook sketch challenge.  I love these challenges since it gives me a great reason to work on my scrapbooking and I'm able to change up how I usually do layouts which really helps me stretch.  This layout was great since it gave one photo as the focus so I decided to use my pictures from the Cherry Blossom 10 Mile race I ran earlier this month.  Once again My Digital Studio came to the rescue and I was able to use lots of fun elements and change sizes, colors, etc. for just the right effect.
I have to admit, in the past most of my scrapbooking has been focused on Aidan and my family and there aren't a lot of pictures that I was in.  Part of this is because I really enjoy taking pictures but also when I was heavier I really wasn't comfortable seeing myself in pictures.  I've read several things lately about how important it is to get out from behind the camera and be in pictures to help remember special events as well as everyday life since this is how your kids and family remember you so that's what I'm trying to work on.  I really like the result and it helps me remember how I felt as well as my family.  I would highly remember you take more pictures with your family, it doesn't matter how you look but remember how you felt and the memories you're making, it's what will last.
