March Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome to the March Joyful Stars Blog Hop! You've probably come from Crystal's blog so you're on the right track. If you're starting here, follow the links at the bottom of each post to see what each of the talented Joyful Stars have to share with you. If you get lost, you can visit Joyce's blog for a complete list. 

I'm continuing my walk through of my 2015 album that I worked on during a crop in January. I used Zoe paper pack for this layout. While the whole 2 page spread isn't the prettiest thing I've ever made, some times it's just not worth spending too much energy when there are bad pictures to scrap. My MIL had a family gathering on her porch for one final end-of-summer cook out and my cell phone takes horrible low-light photos. But there were memories I want to remember and share with my kids later on so they are worth preserving. That's the point of a scrapbook, right? ;)

But then there are some pages where I only have one fabulous photo. I'm still puzzled about how this scenario happened because I don't remember taking this photo (#mombrain) but it showed up on my camera roll and it is adorable!!! I was watching my niece, who is a year younger than my youngest, and since the cousins don't see each other too often, they get along great. My son is so much gentler with her than his sister. Go figure. 

This layout was a happy accident because these are the leftover scraps from the Zoe workshop layouts I made. There was no cutting, just some adhesive, stickers and journaling. Love it!

I'm going to continue sharing layouts from this album, so stop by any time! :)

Now you're off to Debi's blog to see what she has to share. 


  1. Fun layouts! Love the number journaling :)

  2. Capturing moments & memories - that's what it's all about! Great job Stephanie! :) I need to do so much better at actually putting my memories on pages! Thanks for inspiring! :)

  3. Your kids are going to love looking back at those pictures, great MOM.

  4. Awesome reminder to scrap the memory and not worry so much if it is an award winning photo! TFS
