on a roll

I am so excited to have gotten so much scrappin' done lately! The inspiration is flowing. I do jump around a bit in my scrapping...always making sure that my pages end up in chronological order. But I do end up completing an album here and there and I have one that is like 5 layouts from being done! That means that it can emerge from my stamp room and out into the real world for others to enjoy. I also have to report that my plan for getting pages ready to go and scrapping them as I can is working so well I can hardly stand it!

I have evolved so much as a scrapper over the last year. I went from having to scrap EVERY single picture I took to combining the kids' albums and scrapping the pictures that I love. In fact every time I go through the albums I find more pictures that don't make the cut. You know the ones that I feel like I have to scrap but really dread doing it for one reason or another. Those photos are OUT! Why on earth would I scrap something just to do it, when I'm not inspired by the pictures or the event. I also have to say that I'm tired of scrapping every single event year after year. WHY do I need to have an Easter picture for every year of their lives? I haven't even been taking pictures lately and that is where my first love of this hobby started. I still love photography but I'm drowning in the pictures that I have to scrap and I'm afraid to add any more too it. I can feel myself coming out of that little problem too. I grabbed my camera yesterday and took some pictures...just because. And the weather is so beautiful today that I just might do it again!

The only problem is that I only want to scrap right now and so my card making is being put to the side for a bit! I do have a couple of swaps coming up and as soon as I get my Occasions mini catalog order I'll have a couple of cards to show you.

have a great day!

supplies: su guava prints dsp, textured white cardstock,, maya road chipboard flower, misc. chipboard letters (some su), buttons, white paint, white glitter stickers by making memories.

good idea to only scrap the special photos....that's one reason I'm sort of afraid to start scrapping....I've got TONS of photos and am a bit overwhelmed!!
Your pages are awesome!!
