Halfway through April…

And I haven’t scrapped much… but I HAVE scrapped! More importantly, I’ve watched TV, played with the dog and read books all when I would have been sitting at my computer in the past. I feel like I have more of a life! And THAT is what I was trying to accomplish.

So here are the four pages I’ve made so far this month:

Craft Room – honestly my favorite room in the house, the one I spend nearly all my time in

Love the Yard – the little stinker absolutely LOVES the backyard! He could spend hours out there just laying in the sun and snoozing or digging in the mulch.

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.

The camping layouts will commence

Anybody that knows me knows that my son is an Eagle Scout, a camper, a hiker, a man that enjoys the outdoors something fierce. I am lucky to have plenty of scrapping ammunition to use for camping and outdoorsy kits to tell his summer stories.
