Have fun!!!!! For my layout titled "no longer a family of three" I wanted to add some brief journaling about what it feels like to see pictures of the 3 of us together, knowing that it wont happen again...I find scrapbooking to be very theuraputic, so I tend to also scrap a lot of very personal and tough subjects.
I used 3 alpha stamp sets:
Letterboxes
Splash me a little!
lots of dots

I love the look of mixing up my alpha sets, because it's a more affordable and versatile alternative to using letter stickers on every layout.


Layout titled "road trip"
I mixed the same 3 alpha stamp sets again, but this time I stamped the word 'trip' onto white paper, trimmed each letter out, and adhered onto the patterned paper.
