Good morning Peas! Sorry I didn't get this up last night, I knocked out EARLY! Guess the trip wore me out a bit too LOL!

I am so happy to see you all playing along! YAY! If you need help uploading creations please let me know, I think I could walk you through it! (not on a mac though not sure if that is different)

Today's challenge is all about STARS! Last week we did circles this week I want to see at LEAST THREE stars on your creation somewhere. It could be as accents/embellishments, in your background/patterned paper, as bling, or even have your pictures (if you are doing a layout) cut in those shapes (GASP!) LOL! Or how about STAR eyelets, brads, chipboard etc? Dig in that stash and find some STAR shaped items and build your creation around them! I can't wait to see what you do. Notate what star shaped items you used when you upload.

Remember to keep linking, uploading, and praising.

CADA GALLERY

Chatter: Who is/are the STARS of your creations? Who do you create for? Yourself? Your family? Friends? Or someone else? Why do you create?

Oh boy! Another excuse to use my wood veneer stars. Love those things.

My stars are my niece and nephew. I scrap their adventures and throw in some family history there too.

When I started scrapping I just wanted to record memories for them so later on they could look back and see how much we love them and how many fun things we did together.

After awhile I started sneaking in some old photos and family stories my sister and I heard growing up. The kids never knew their grandfather in person and we have a lot of stories about him.

Bottom line though - it just makes me feel good to scrap these things whether the kids even care later in their lives or not. And I just love playing with paper!

I just did a layout the other day which had stars on it. Since I use so many hearts and flowers on DD's pages, stars seem to be my go to embellishment for DS's pages.

Now that I got my printer working again I am going to try the sketch layout from the other day too.

The stars of my pages are, of course, my two kids. It is very rare for me to scrapbook a page that is not about them!

Love it ladies!

I started scrapping while in high school but it was NOT like it is today! Took a long hiatus but still "smashed" but didn't know it was called that through college and my stint in the service. Once we found out we were expecting DD I got REALLY into it, plus they said it would be good for my issues stemming from Iraq (it was). And well the rest is history. I now have about 20 completed albums that need to be sorted chronically (I was doing so good until the third move LOL) and working on the second year of PL. I now have two stars, DD and DS but I also make it a point to do DH an me and me alone pages too. I think that is important to see us as other than parents especially right now when we are in the trenches so to speak.

OK... I think I looked through the CADA gallery and saw everyone's fun stuff. I've been busy here trying to get some of the challenges done and, of course, I'm behind but I managed to get two LO's done. This one is for the "Stamp Me" challenge

Here is my LO for the One Color One Neutral challenge. It was so hard to photograph this one for some reason. The white CS, looks drab and I had to play around a lot in PSE 10 to get the color to look right so at least the color is close to the color of the ink, which is my favorite color ink so I wanted to get that right. Any tips on photographing lo's? I'm sorry the photo is not the best but I have to get over it and move on.

The stars of my scrapbook are definitely my daughter and myself. I definitely create for myself though, scrapbooking is my creative play time. If my daughter ends up treasuring them, that's a really great bonus, if not, I've enjoyed making them and that's good enough for me. I don't choose archival safe, I sometimes don't journal on my photos and overall don't put a lot of thought into them lasting for generations.

Do you have a list of what's been done so far, so I can catch up without hunting threads?

So in an effort to catch up. I've combined my CADA 8 and 13. HERE is my CADA 8 & 13. Sorry for the poor photo. I'm 1/2 sleep trying to snap, upload and type.
