Exploring My 'Scrappy' Side

Hello friends !

Something new and different from my side today. Of late, I've found myself getting drawn towards scrapbooking. I love seeing those wonderful mixed media scrapbook layouts and watching the step-by-step process of creating one. Although this is not my first attempt at a scrapbook LO, but this is surely my first attempt at making a mixed media layout, playing with different mediums and sprays. Oh, yes, I thoroughly enjoyed it !

Have a look:

I was inspired by the sketch at Once upon a...sketch-November Challenge, where this month's theme is-- Inspirations. 

My inspiration for making this is my 3-year old daughter. Every mother loves to see her child smile and giggle and laugh her heart out, to be free of any worries. I have tried to capture the happiness I feel on seeing my baby with her wholehearted, toothy giggle. :) Although she loves to pose for the photos, it usually gets difficult to get her real self, her natural laugh to be captured in a photo, because kids get camera-conscious and don't come out naturally. After a few attempts, I got lucky and captured my favorite moment :)

The Journaling reads like this--"I may be having the worst time of my day, but your innocent smile makes all my worries fade away. Keep smiling always!"
