Scrapbooking Resolutions Continued



Continuing with my New Year's Resolutions to keep attempting to catch up with my scrapbooking, here is another layout I completed that has creatures around my yard.  I apologize for my photos, as I have a new computer and I need to purchase new photo editing software, I just have not done it yet and another thing on my "to do" list.  One thing I would like to point out is my matting.  I always use Perfect Layers and this system makes matting easy and gorgeous.  A long time ago, I was one of those people that had to keep shaving off a bit here and there to make my mats look perfect to no avail.  This is a great product and if you would like a set for yourself and also at a discount, please check out the sidebar on the right for a link and discount code as I am a brand ambassador.  This is one of those tools that I purchased "once upon a time" and use over and over and over again!

If you have been inspired to catch up on your scrapbooking, please post and let me know how it is going for you.

New Year's Resolutions



So were any of you silly like me and made crafting New Year's Resolutions?  And if you did, are you keeping them?  I was getting a bit behind and so I decided to try and do some catching up.  I sure keep trying to be not more than a year behind in my scrapbooking, however I have not attained that goal yet.  The good news is that I am no longer more than a couple of years behind..............lol!  Last year was the first year I made a crafting resolution and I was over three years (just call it four) behind.  As of today I am around November of 2011, so I think I am doing okay.  This month, I decided that to keep me motivated, I would start sharing layouts that I am getting done.  I love scrapbooking and for me, I have so many different albums going on at one time, it makes it even more challenging to keep up!  I am finding that if I schedule myself to go to crops in my area and to actually put crafting time on my calendar (make an appointment with yourself) that I do much better getting the things I need to get done, done.  Also, get those photos off of your computers, cameras, and phones.  You can't scrap them if you don't print them. 
 
So how are you tackling your scrapbooking projects?  Please share your ideas with us!
