Longing to Scrap....

Since our family was together while we were gone for the past month, I did not find myself longing for home much (it's true that home is where the heart is and my "home" was with me!) But, I sure was wishing I had packed a bag of scrapbook stuff! While visiting Sue's blog, where she posted this card she did for a Courtney's Closet challenge, I thought of the last layout I did, which at this point was months ago! A while back I did a page for Savannah that I was pretty happy with, so I wanted do a similar one for Kylie: The lighting wasn't great when I took these photos, so the colors did not show as vividly in as they really are.
As you can see, I am great at leaving spots for journaling - but not so great at actually doing the journaling! These pictures are all pretty old and pre-digital camera - but special to us. I feel as though I will forever be playing catch up with my scrapping of memorable events. I have now switched to "get it done" mode and am taking a more "no frills" approach to scrapping my old photos. If I don't, I may be documenting my children's pre-school years well into my retirement! This week I will be working on getting settled back in at home as quickly as possible so I can get back to it!

You have an eye for this for sure! But finding the dedicated time is sooo challenging. Have you tried Digital scrapbooking at all? I know it isn't the same outcome but for me I can at least feel like I accomplish something. Your girls will love looking back at these!

I love scrapbooking but just don't do it anymore. Thanks for sneaking around, come sneak some more if you have a strong urge too!

Oh, I LOVE your scrapbook pages!! I am really behind in scrapping as well, probably about 3 years worth. I figure it will give me something to do when the nest is empty (if I survive the child rearing years that is :)

I love them. I just did a page myself yesterday and finished one up today. But mine are not like yours, so gorgeous. you are such a natural at this. I'm still in the beginning stages. I'm not good with cutting. One day!!

God Bless you girl, we miss you guys!!
