A few more pages

Best Job – that wishlist journal card was my story for this page. I had already told the kids the one thing I’d love for Mother’s Day is to sleep in because Obi doesn’t let me do that anymore.

You Me and the Sea – When I look at photos in my Lightroom catalog for beach, I get a lot of photos of Elysse and Jorge. Not surprising because she loves the beach!

Well, I haven’t totally forgotten

how to scrapbook, so I’m pretty darn pleased about that. I’ve completed 7 pages since my last post and I can share 6 of them now.

On an exciting note, I got two PL spreads done! I’m trying the “stay current and then work backwards approach” that a lot of people suggest when you get behind. I have found that a little bit of hindsight isn’t a bad thing when doing these weekly pocket spreads because you know what comes next. But the memory just isn’t so perfect on all those little details anymore. And my photo catalog isn’t helping. So many times the date imports as today and not when that photo was taken and then I have to spend time figuring out where to move it.

FIVE for Sweet Shoppe!

This was an amazing week over at Sweet Shoppe Designs! Another brand new designer, a fun featured kit AND just a bunch of really gorgeous stuff from the designers! There was so much on my “I want to scrap with THIS!” list this week, I couldn’t get to it all.

But here is what I DID get to!

Blossoms From Within – back to those gorgeous photos from the Wynwood day

Creme Caramel and matching Overlays from Captivated Visions

Each Other – I can’t pass up scrapping with a kit about brother & sister. Elysse keeps me stocked up with family photos to scrap, too.
