Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop - Follow that Sketch

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a lovely weekend! We are forever covered with white fluffy flakes up here in Canada. That means more time indoors, which equals more time for memory keeping if you ask me! Today I am hopping with the Scrapbook Sunday team! I am truly honoured to be joining them. For those who may be new here, my name is Carolynn Sander. I am a Canadian Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator located in Calgary, Alberta. Thank you so much for visiting my blog today. I hope that you enjoy! Make sure to click through the blog list at the end of today's post so that you take in all of the memory keeping inspiration to be shared! Believe me, you will fall in love!

Today's inspiration comes from a sketch! Yes that's right... the fabulous sketch above. To be honest, one could create many fabulous momento filled pages by following the above layout! It's pretty amazing! Here is my interpretation of the sketch...

So what do you think? Yes ... I changed it up a bit! I flipped my picture horizontally, and I moved a few of the elements around a wee little. But that is what is so fascinating about one's interpretation of a sketch. We will all come out with something slightly different in the end. And that is what makes it all so fabulous! 

I have been reminiscing about life more recently. I love my hobby. I love my career. But mostly I love what I have been blessed with (my family). These pages are more than art. They are celebrating special moments. Moments that at one point in time were the now. But now they are then. I want to cherish the now more, so that I can look back on the then. If that makes any sense. Cherish now...  

Of course Stampin' Up! has helped me to put these precious memories into the keepsake album forever.
