So much easier said then done…

My eyes will accept my layouts but that little scrapbooker within won’t keep quiet…

Makes life SO much easier...

Scrapbooking a Double Page Layout

This new computer is both awesome and horrid all at the same time. For whatever reason, these two pages are simply NOT going to line up properly, therefore making the mirror image of the pages look wonky.

This frame is one of the many offered by Silhouette America, allowing you to scrap a LOT of photos quickly and easily!

Monday so SOON?!

This month, well this YEAR really isn’t it, is going much to fast for me. Can you believe next week is February and I’m STILL working on my Alaskan Album? I’m sure you’re tired of hearing about it as I know I certainly am, lol!

Anyways, here is my page for Ketchikan which I did before Christmas. It’s one of those pages I really had no plans for when I began but the end result was better than I could have hoped.

Ketchikan - Double Page

Just at the moment I’m working with a new computer which has meant out with the old knowledge, and in with the new. Very exhausting to say the least.

I’m particularly missing the ability to place black borders around all my work but hopefully by the end of NEXT month I may have sorted this… stranger things have happened!

Memory Monday!

I don’t know why I didn’t think of this title sooner for my scrapbooking Monday posts? Then again, this is only the second week I’ve posted any of my scrapbooking pages on a Monday so…

Today’s pages were three months in the making but what’s even more impressive than that, is that these two pages remained on the table, simply covered with clear plastic all that time. We all worked over the top of this layout. Scary but true!

If you hadn’t already noticed, I tend to revert to this style of page set-up quite regularly. Last year I fought against this constantly but you know what, sometimes it’s better to work with what you know then lose hours, days, weeks or even months procrastinating over something else. This being the perfect example!

Scrapbooking should be about what YOU like and what YOU know. Sure sometimes I can see a layout in a magazine and can immediately adapt it to what I’m doing. Then there are times the pages are really all about the memories of those moments captured.

Time has never been my friend hence this year my focus is getting the job done rather than focusing on “pretty-ing” it up. But as Darling Hubby said to me, “we’ll see, we’ll see…

Scrapbook Monday

My Alaskan Album has become a thorn in my side. It should have been completed before the children went back to school in September. Yet, even with the teacher’s even giving me a couple of extra weeks, I’m still not even half way through. {sigh}

Hence I’ve now set myself the goal of completing this album before the end of January… and to be clear, that’s January 2015. Wish me luck!
