One Sketch...Many Layouts (30 in all!) And a WINNER!!!


Corey!!!! Hey Hey Miss Corey! You won my ribbon raffle. I will send you some goodies this week girl. Same address?

And now to some scrapping goodness.


I have been putting off doing the kids school pages for years now. I have been gathering up school photos each year...along with the class photo in the hopes of getting them all in albums by the time the kids were in college. What a laugh that is. Well, I finally got off my butt and put some pages together. Helen and I went again to "A Time For Memories" in Grafton, MA for the scrap pink crop. I told myself I was going to get these pages done and not come home with any left over to scrap. Well, I did it. 30 pages in all and now the kids are caught up. Untill this years photos came home in backpacks last week...oh well! How I made this easy and doable was using one sketch and a stack of papers and embellies that I had collected in one box. I stopped myself from using anything else. Some examples are below along with the sketch that I used.

This was a fantatic way to get things done and I mean A LOT of things done in a short period of time. Limiting myself to just one bin of product made the whole process work up quick and with low stress. I would suggest that you find a sketch you like, gather up some products and just limit yourselft to what you have. Don't keep buying more supplies and putting it off. It can get so out of hand that the task is just too daunting to want to tackle.

I am so happy I got these done. Now I can move on to tackling my next pile and bin of STUFF!!! And I am really happy about that. MF signature
