It's Ok to Brag

Can you believe we are halfway through June. Summer is upon us and it is time for family cookouts, baseball and softball games, running through the sprinkler and many other summer past times.

We are creating memories. 

How do you keep your memories alive? 

Well, I enjoy scrapbooking, but it takes a lot of time and effort. Don't get me wrong, it is totally worth it but sometimes I just do not have the time to invest in my detailed scrapbooks. The typical size book I create for my family is 12"x12." I enjoy taking my photos and recording the details of memorable events. I have been scrapbooking for over 15 years. Fast forward to May 2013.......where I received my May Paper Pumpkin Kit. It is an adorable brag book kit. It is the perfect kit to jot down a special date, insert a photo, tuck in a ticket stub or your favorite recipe. It is a 5"x5" book that came with so many goodies! This mini book is a quick and fun way to keep all those special moments alive!

Today I am sharing a page from my brag book. I kept in mind the Tags and Banner theme from the My Pumpkin Challenge. I hand cut the triangles at the top to make a mini banner and then snipped the words from the "a good day" sticker into separate stickers for each triangle. For the banner along the bottom I used my bone folder to add some "life" to the paper which added some dimension. 


What fun things have you created with your kit? We would love for you to share your creation over at the My Pumpkin Challenge or stop by to get inspired!
