Christmas Tree

Hello!  I just finished this page and thought it would be one of those perfect 'Christmas in July' layouts to share.  It also means I'm getting closer to being done with scrapbooking 2012.  I'm doing my best to pick out the photos that I 'should' scrap instead of scrapping them all.  It's hard to choose!  I had fun with this color combo since it has the traditional red/green Christmas colors, but also some pinks and purples.

Hello!  It's been awhile since I haven't posted.  My sister in law, Natasha, surprised me with a 10-day visit.  I'm taking a little break right now (maybe before I take a nap), while she and Quent play some cribbage.  I thought I would post something since I had a moment.

I was inspired by a page I found through Pinterest.  The digital kit I used is: Currently by Traci Reed

Little miss blue eyes

Hello!  I've been scrapbooking a lot lately.  It's been so fun!  I've been listening to an audio book and some fun music and have just been having a blast!  I have completed 3 pages in the last day, not to mention some Project Life pages.  Feels so good!  Suddenly I feel so creative!

Project Life: Week 24

Hello!  Would you believe it if I told you I was caught up with Project Life?  Well, you better because it's true!  Ha!  Feels so good!  I bought some new digital kits and that was true motivation to have fun and play!  Works every time!  Now maybe I can get caught up on last year's photos!  Haha!

Project Life: Week 23

Hello!  I'm so glad it's raining today!  I needed a rainy day to have an excuse to be inside and play with Photoshop.  I am a month behind on Project Life and I would really like to get caught up.  So I'm on to the next week...

Project Life: Week 22

Hello!  Honestly, I didn't think I would be back so quick posting another Project Life page, but here I am!  I have to say I love this spread!  It feels so good to complete another week.  I'm about to start week 23, but I wanted to blog first.

I've been noticing this pressure I've been putting on myself to scrapbook 'normal' pages, aka NOT Project Life, but I've come to terms that Project Life just might be my norm for awhile.  It's what's working for me.  The more pressure I (or others) put on me, the more I want to turn and run the other way (this applies to like everything in my life, maybe it's because I'm a stubborn first-born!).  I don't like pressure.  Pressure + scrapbooking = procrastination and unhappiness.  And who wants to be unhappy in their hobby (which isn't something I HAVE to do, but that I LIKE to do).
This is a new season for me, it's a season of documenting with pictures, some journaling, in the simple collage form that is what I call Project Life.  And I'm ok with that.  I had so many years of having the time to scrap whenever, whatever, but now my time is precious and limited, so I will do my best, and my best right now is Project Life. 
And friends, that's creative freedom to me!  Yay!
