Our November Guest Designer Denise lives in Southern California, which she loves because she can wear flip flops most of the time. She is a stay at home mom to two lovely children who are the main focus of her scrapbooking. She scrapbooks layouts, cards, and home decor. You can see a fabulous Halloween banner she made with Graphic 45's Halloween in Wonderful at http://lalasworldblog.blogspot.com/2010/10/trick-or-treat.html. She keeps busy with her kids, her addiction to scrapbook challenges, managing a group that creates lifebooks for adopted children, and the occasional fluff novel.
Denise submitted this layout for the October THAT Project Challenge. She said "for me my THAT project was scrapping a page about my life as a young adult. There are a couple of reasons I have put it off. The first is that I knew I would have to go through several shoeboxes to find the pictures. This actually turned out to be really enjoyable as I went down memory lane. The other is that I keep very busy with all the pictures of my children. So after I went through my boxes and found some pictures I wanted to use, I scrapped this layout.
I went crazy with my Fancy Pants rub-on and the paper is also from Fancy Pants. The blue flowers are from Prima. The vellum quote I cut up was from Quick Quotes and reads,” Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'WOW! What a ride!'”
