Have a Coke and a Smile...or LAUGH!

October Stamp of the Month Layout by Karen Pedersen

When I saw the October Stamp of the Month (Home for the Holidays), I knew right away that there was a layout I wanted to make.

At Christmas time 1989, when our son, Easton was about a year old the Coke commercials began...you know, the ones with the polar bears that you can still see running every Christmas time?  Well, this little one year old thought they were the funniest thing. Every time he saw them, he not only giggled, but belly laughed...and laughed...and laughed.  Of course, there is nothing like a baby laughing to get everyone else laughing as well.  Whenever one of those commercials came on after the first few times, Dan or I would grab Easton and run to the TV.  The belly laughing would commence.  Even today, 25 years later, I still laugh whenever I see a Coke/polar bear commercial and remember Easton's obsession with them.  What could be more fun to commemorate in a layout than that?

The moral of this story: Don't just scrap the EVENTS in your life (birthdays, Halloween, Christmas, etc), but the MEMORIES as well. It's the little things that make life grand.



For every $50 you order, you qualify for a Stamp of the Month ($17.95 value) at only $5. When ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your set(s) before you check out. Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy!


Also, for every $50 or more you order, CTMH will throw in a spool of red or blue chevron ribbon FREE in October.  They'll surprise you with the color. Who doesn't love FREE?

What a great story. I love the advice to scrapbook memories, not just events.
