Do you ever make mistakes when you're scrapbooking?? Like sticking something where it doesn't quite go, or coming back to a page and finding out that your 3 year old has scribbled on it?
This happens to me all the time with the making mistakes part but my theory is THERE ARE NO MISTAKES IN SCRAPBOOKING as we have the luxury of finding something else to stick over our 'mistake', or adding more and more until it looks right!
The second one with the child scribbling on a layout doesn't happen quite so much...but with this page, it did! I had my page all finished and then went to do something (as we mothers do, I got distracted!) only to come back and find that my 3yo Bronte had drawn on my page in the bottom right hand corner of the layout. My first reaction was to yell and scream and for Bronte to get in trouble, but I thought about it for a second a realised she was probably just trying to be a little bit creative herself and I couldn't punish her for that, could I!?
So instead, I explained to Bronte that in future she shouldn't use textas on Mummy's scrapbook pages and should use her own box of scrapping goodies...and I went about sticking more on my page to 'cover up the mistake'. Alls well that ends well...and I'm still happy with how my layout ended up (except for the big crease in my nephew's head, but thats another story!!!).

Thanks for visiting Purple Pumpkin today, and I hope you too take on the belief that there are no mistakes in scrapbooking!!
