Paper Issues: Anything Goes!

The new issue at Paper Issues is up on the blog today and this time "Anything Goes!"
This is a pretty easy one cause you can link up pretty much anything. :)
The sponsor this time around is a company called Whisker Graphics and they specialize in really cool party bags, baker's twine, printables and tags.
Here is my layout using some of the party bags and tags, plus a few items from various Swag Bags from Paper Issues...
I wanted to use my tried and true grid like design with instagram photos of two of my scrapbook layouts and two bags with tags tucked inside. One tag contains my journaling and the other is just for balance purposes. The "Every Picture Records a Little Story" die cut was in one of the Swag Bags along with the rest of the embellishments on the page except for the camera die cut.
I had been wanting to use that die cut for a while and this page about why I scrapbook was just right!

Here is a closer look at the journaling. And I mean every word of it! I scrapbook mainly to tell stories. Of course, I will scrapbook the big events, but I also love to capture the everyday moments of our lives together. And not always the good, happy memories. There have been a few hardships that I have made a layout or two about.

So I hope you will join in and link up with us for this issue. You can find all the details on this blog post *Here.* The prize is a selection of Whisker Graphics product.

And don't forget if you use code MARYJO you can get 20% off your purchase in the Paper Issues Shop!
If you link up before Tuesday evening you may just find yourself featured on the Paper Issues blog on Wednesday when I have a blog post going up.
Thanks for stopping by today!
