One of the biggest things that has been bothering me lately is my lack of scrapbooking, which has resulted in a drought in scrapbooking posts. I don’t feel like myself if I am not fiddling with paper. I was telling Kita that this weekend when we met at Big Summer Potluck when we discussing our hobbies. She was saying that she was itching to get back on her mountain bike after a day off on Friday & Saturday. At least last week I did quickly make the two of us little scrapbooks. But I have not been working on layouts. Sure, I’ve been slowly continually working on Project Life but not enough on dedicated to completing the weeks so nothing to post on here. I guess I just need to carve out some time to get creative, but it is so hard when we are always busy/away on the weekends and then playing catch during the week. #firstworldproblems
I love sharing what I make so I decided I needed to buckle down and finish some posts that have been in the ‘almost done’ pile. I had to wrap up my journaling or do some little finishing touches to these layouts and it feels good to get them done and slide those layouts in my albums.
First Game– ugh these are old pictures. Look how short my hair is! I created this in response to a Studio Calico Sunday Sketch but since this has been in the ‘almost done’ pile for so long I have no idea what sketch it was!
I Love You This Much– I really liked doing this layout. It was fun to link winter : knit accessories : thread & sewing. I just wish I picked a darker thread or a shimmery one for the ornaments since that thread there gets lost against the patterned paper. I made the ornaments from circle stickers and then I put washi on them.
The Big Move– A simple double page layout. Also really old photos since these are from our move last year. I love simple pages like this with lots of alignment and plenty of photos. Nothing too special going on here but it is just nice to have our move documented.
