    My favorite season to scrapbook is SUMMER! Maybe the reason is because I live in Michigan, and we only get 3 short months of semi-warm weather, so I just embrace this season like no other! I love to memorialize that all too short glimpse of warmth on a page, so I can revisit it when we are up to our necks in snow, kleenex, and red noses. So yes, I find SUMMER to be my favorite time to scrapbook!

There are beautiful red lanterns everywhere. I really enjoy doing cultural scrapbook pages.
