Appreciating the everyday

Sometimes I get stuck scrapping big events, particularly trips we go on or big events like concerts or recitals. Still, most of my life is made up of the mundane, so I try to take the opportunity periodically to scrap the everyday. Here's a recent page:

I used a July story starter and sketch from Simple Scrapper to scrapbook my commute, which is blessedly short. It' a positive page, so I used happy colors on a white background to make the colors sing.  Most of these products came from my June Studio Calico kit, though I dug into stash to fill in the blanks.

And here are some details:

I decided to curl the edges of the papers to add some texture and extra color. I stamped and stitched to add some more texture and color as well.

See the blue smudge on the 1? That's an accident from when I stamped the word LOVE. When I saw it, I cursed silently then did the same to each number, pretending I did it on purpose. Heh.

I love the word bubble stamp--I cut it out and adhered it with dimensional stickers. *Note* I wrote the wrong time on the journaling--I actually end of leaving at 6:40 because my boys are slow. I'm going to write the correct time on another piece of paper and glue it over the wrong time, which I time I always shoot for.

Thank you for checking out my page! How often do you scrapbook the everyday? Do you like to scrap the everyday? Share!

Great idea! It's easy to forget to document our daily routines and I doubt we will remember them years from now. It will be interesting to see how they change in the future.
Love this idea and layout!
