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.

Wow! It’s been over a month…

and I had a really good reason for not posting for such a long time. I’ve been packing up my entire house to sell it. With the help of family and friends we managed to get it all packed into boxes and then into storage units.

I actually haven’t even scrapbooked in two weeks which is a very long time for me! But today, I closed on my old house and I scrapped! But before I post those, first I better post the few that I haven’t included on the blog as of yet.
