Going on



Well here I am again posting for the first time in a long while. So I thought I would challenge myself... For the next thirty days I plan to blog once a day. Now mind you it may not be note worthy to any one else but at least I will be blogging and hopefully get myself back in the habit!




So today I am blogging about scrapbooking and another challenge for me to complete... I want to get 10 pages done in the next thirty days and boy that is going to a hard one for me. So here I go .... Oh but before I do let me leave you with a picture of my darlings!

With the little snap of actual winter weather here in Tx and no school my two kidlets have had some extra playtime together and I would haft to say that a great deal of that time I am wanting to pull out my hair as they scream, fight, chase each other around the house and are just generally loud and bouncing off the walls. However the little moments like this cuddle session make it all worth it and bring the biggest smile to my face. James invited Miah to get a little warmer under his coveted blanket as they watched a little tv together. He almost could not get her close enough.... How darling are they!!



Now on to scrapbooking, I have let it get way out of hand. Yep I am so far behind that I will never get caught up if I try and do it the way I had my mind set on doing it. So I am changing my strategy.... I am going to go back and scrap at least one page from each month of the last several years for James and the last two years for Miah. Instead of trying to scrap every thing I will limit myself to my favorite photo or to a special memory for each month up until now. Seeing as I already have some pages done for certain months I am not going to allow them to be placed in my catch up.... No I am starting two new chronological albums for the kids and when they are done I will just add on from there. Now I know me and I LOVE to scrap my latest favorite photo so I will allow myself to do one "new" Photo for every four older Photos and that will keep me motivated. So here is hoping my challenge will get me started in the right direction and I will keep you up to date on how well I do... till then here is one of my latest pages....

So so cute...as usual! Are you doing paper, digital or hyrid scrapping these days? I have been better at scrapping pages right away, but I also need to get caught up on those many many months that are missing! I can't wait to see more of your layouts...you always inspire me!

I too am soooo behind on my scrapping. I am a champion digital kit downloader but can't seem to make the time for actually scrapping the gazillion pictures I take. I would love to take this challenge with you and complete 10 layouts in 30 days!! Maybe that would jumpstart my scrapping again!!
