Merly Impressions Challenge

I stumbled upon the Merly Inpressions layout challenge earlier in the week and thought it was a great challenge!  As a scrapbooker I get asked a lot as to what scrapbooking is, but not often WHY do you scrapbook.  So when I saw the challenge was to create a page about "why I scrapbook" I realised that I do not have an incredibly heartwarming story as to why this is my passion and hobby. I scrapbook for the obvious reasons of documenting our life and telling/preserving our story of course, but the reason I scrapbook is simple. It makes me happy and I love it! I like the fact it is a hobby I share with my mum.  I love getting lost in my pretty paper, bling and other yummy stash.

This is the LO I created. 

 I wanted it to be bright and fun.  I know that not a lot of people are crazy about neon, but I love Heidi Swapp's neon washi tape. It is a recent addition to my stash and I hope to use a lot more of this....

Products I used:
Die cuts from Authentique, My Minds Eye, Miss Caroline, My little Shoebox (mini alphabet stickers)
Heidi Swapp - neon washi tape, Studio Calico abroad paper. Some scrap paper I found in my scrappies box.

Thank you for reading and have a lovely weekend!
