It's Time to Bust Some Scrapbooking Myths

So it's the second of February and that means we are on
day 2 of Layout A Day (LOAD 214). This round's theme is Scrapbook Mythbusters (where does Lain come up with these prompts?) and it's all about breaking down the myths and mysteries about scrapbooking.

I've decided not to post every layout this month, but rather highlight some of my favorites since I have a lot of other crafty projects in the wings. But I am particularly happy with how today's layout came out so thought I'd share.

The prompt today was to dispel the myth that you should only scrapbook big events or stories. So we were challenged today to scrap about a little story that was important for us to record. I knew right away which photo I was going to use...I've been saving it for just the right layout. (Layout design was inspired by another fellow LOADster, Orange Everything...ironic huh?)

When my oldest son was little, he loved to eat carrots...but they ended up turning his nose orange (hard to see in the photo). We actually were slightly worried about him and made an appointment to see his pediatrician. After taking one look at Matthew, the doctor said, "He must love carrots!" and assured us that his nose was just responding to the extra doses of beta carotene. We were relieved that it was nothing serious...but we did end up limiting his carrot intake.

Well that's it for now. The big game is underway and my craft space is being invaded by cheering fans.

Have a great night.
