My Hockey Boys and the Reason WHY I Scrapbook

Hi Everyone
I went scrapbooking to my friends yesterday, and had a great time. Of course my mouth was faster then my hands so I only got one layout done! That is typical ME! So easily distracted! But I must say, I'm very happy with how it turned out; I based it off one of the sketches on Sketches 2 Scrapbook Aps on my iPhone.  I love to stamp on Glossy Card Stock: the White Skull tag was made with the corner rounder and Glossy Card Stock stamped with Basic Black; it is just SO vibrant!
Some Momma Pride:
This year was the twins FIRST hockey season.  Their first practice was their FIRST time on skates! LOL! Talk about throwing them in the deep end!  But I could NOT be ANY prouder of my boys! They fell at least 100 times, but they SMILED the whole time and got up 101! Not once did they give up, get frustrated.  At the end of that first practice while we were taking their kit off, Tristan said to me " Mom, we kinda sucked at first, but now we are AWESOME!" LOL! I totally had a tear in my eye! You can teach someone to hockey.. but you CAN NOT teach HEART! 
My Journaling on my Page
"You can't teach heart, you either have it or your don't.  You two have it in TRUMPS! Reach for the Starts my boys!"

I just wanted to point out, THIS is exactly WHY I scrapbook; I don't want to forget all these feelings,  and I want my boys to be able to read and see their childhood and to remember what is forgotten over time.
