My Return to Scrapbooking

I've made some new decisions in my life........some because I want to and some because I have to. My scrappin' is an area that has definitely needed to be re-evaluated. I've had some health issues which have made scrappin' difficult at best, and due to this, I've resigned from all of my team memberships. But even more than that, I found myself not wanting to scrap from the pressure of having to make a certain project....by a certain due date...and good enough that the bloggin' world would like it. Compound that with not feeling well....and I just quit scrappin'. But I miss it.....so I'm back to doing it again. At least scrapbook pages. Cards are too much time....and I figure people just throw them away. With my limited time available to scrap, I'm trying to make it count so I'm doing scrapbook pages. And I'm doing whatever I want- good, bad, messy - whatever makes me happy. I might even use stickers!








Here's my latest project - my cute little daughter Kati. I was inspired by a wonderful sketch 124 from the Scrappiest. Used a bunch of random paper I had around, cut the background flower shapes from Paisley, added Thickers for the title, and used floss, glitter, and some blinged out ribbon for accents. I was so excited about scrappin' my way - I'm headed downstairs to do some more.

Love your layouts. I didn't know you had a second blog. I was a follower of your other one and saw your post this morning about getting back to scrapbooking. I understand the pressures and not being "fun" anymore. Sometimes you just have to take a break. So glad your back and scrapping again. You have wonderful things posted. Cindy
