Welcome to our FIRST Memories Always - Forever Blog Hop! I am so excited to be a Design Team Member for this wonderful site.
(If you have arrived here any other way than through the blog hop, please click here to be taken to the MAF homepage and start at the beginning of the hop.)
Memories Always - Forever (MAF) has been created as a place where members can rally together as a crafting community, showcase their crafting talents, share their ideas, learn, and participate in exciting challenges.
Not a member of MAF yet? Why not??? We are new and ready to go! All we need is you to help make the site rock!!
As a Scrapbooking Design Team Member, I hope to encourage you to have a bit of fun with your pages and will be hosting Funday Monday this month - I encourage you to join in! My motto is 'there is no wrong way to scrap' because it's all really about preserving your family's memories in a way that is attractive to you, right? My style changes and evolves with each picture I take or each memory that I savor; I love every page that I do and never redo something once it's in my book. I recently made this LO of myself and my daughter wearing the colorful native costume of Okinawa. We took these same photos 10 years ago, and think we will do it again in another 10! The style of the LO is a bit bright for me, but the memory is documented and cherished, just the same. In the other LO, I took a photo of my husband by the river during a sunset. The colors are muted, the design more lavish than the other LO, but I love this page too. I really couldn't pick a favorite as they both document wonderful memories for me.
Anyone who knows me knows that I love to give gifts, prizes or RAKs and I will be doing just that throughout my time as a Design Team Member with Memories Always - Forever. To win a special RAK from me, comment on this blog post about one of your favorite memories.
Then hop on over to here to visit Monica's blog and see what this talented girlie is up to! The contests end Sunday at midnight EST, but the fun at Memories Always - Forever is sure to be never ending!
Be sure to complete the entire MAF Hop to be entered to win the great MAF blog candy shown above!
