Merly Impressions Monthly CHallenge

Well, the "Where Bloggers Create" party was a lot of fun, I visited some amazing blogs and saw some truly stunning crafting spaces.
There is a world of beautiful blogs out there and I was thrilled to receive many visits from some very talented bloggers.
One such talented blogger is Emilie Chamel and I was very inspired by her blog when I popped over to visit during the UKS bloghop recently.
Click here for a peek into her crafting world.
Emilie is on the DT teams of Scrap 365 and Merly Impressions who hold a LO challenge on the 15th of each month.
The July challenge is "why I scrapbook" and here's my take on it.

I scrapbook for many reasons but they can all be summed up in one word "memories".
The "everyday memories", the "big event" memories, the "sad" memories, the "silly" memories and the "did we really do that" memories they all find their way into my scrapbooks.

The papers and some of the embellies are from the Saturdays range by Little Yellow Bicycle, other bits and pieces from my stash.

Linking to the Merly Impressions blog post July 2012 Layout Challenge.
