Loving The Pool

I have been feeling a bit down about my scrapbooking layouts lately. I see so many absolutely amazing pages out there that I have begun to doubt myself and my creative abilites. I have to share this bit of insight with you though as my precious boy came to talk to me while I was sitting at my computer this morning and sees this LO and says... "Wow mummy this is great".
How precious is that and it made me think. It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks, I do this for me and to preserve my families most precious memories. So whenever you may be feeling like I was, remember why you do this art we call scrapbooking.

I created this LO for the September Sketch challenge over at Scraphappykat. The sketch is awesome. You still have time. The deadline is tomorrow.

Papers are some old Stampin Up ones I have in my stash, Lily Bee Hello Sunshine and I have stamped images from SU Life's a breeze.

Thanks for looking.
