YAY Me- I got to scrap

Well my mother in law is here- Bella will be 4 tomorrow- so she took them shopping so I have a day off. Well sort of, LOL. And I woke up really early and looked for some challenges (non- team work wahoo) to do. Journaling Junkies has a what's in your purse challenge. I have seen these before, but never got into it. But lately I have been thinking about all the stuff I carry in my purse and in the description of the challenge they say, "I have discovered that what we carry around in our bags is very indicative pf the stage of life we're in at this moment." And I find that statement so so so true. So here it is, see below for journaling.

My journaling is around the edges and it says, "I am not a purse person. In fact when I was childless I prided myself on not being one of "those" girls. Now with two children and a thousand things to do I am forced to carry a purse. On any given day I have a variety of things in my purse, but I always have ."

The arrows and journal spots are the pointing at

- wallet, phone, headphones and snacks
- sunscreen for the girls
- a camera for the girls (well really for me to take pictures of the girls)
- a notebook for lists, sketches, notes, etc.
- coupons and receipts

Almost all elements on this are from the July kit at Dixie Pieces. pp is October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket. Rub-ons are luxe designs. Alphas are Cosmo Cricket. Brads are Basic Grey. Pleated ribbon is Pink Paislee.


  1. Look at you rocking the mommy purse! LOL. Fantastic layout. Love the journaling :) You don't carry that much stuff girl. Have you seen the women carrying around suitcase-like purses?!

  2. Great job! Glad you could get in on the challenge (and start in on that awesome DP kit)! :)

  3. Thanks so much for joining in on the challenge.
    I will post yours in a readers roundup at the end of the month.
    As a Mom of teens now I miss those days of half chewed goodies and stuff to keep small children occupied/clean and happy.
    Love it!

  4. Yay I think I fixed it. I have always wanted to do this challenge but never have,

  5. What a great page to capture your life at this moment!! That's OC isn't it? Love that pp!

  6. I love this Ana! I too have seen this challenge once or twice before but have never done it. I might just need to. I think it would be very insteresting to look back on later.


Thank you for taking the time to comment on my blog. It means more than you can imagine.
