Do you find scrapbooking to be a scary task? I know that a lot of people do. In my monthly newsletter I have been including a series on scrapbooking. So if you need a little extra help- please be sure to sign up for my email newsletter in the top left bar. Also- I have a monthly scrapbooking classes and I would love to have you join us!

So here is my Scary page...


It is a 12x12 layout which is my very favorite size to work with. And it is only a 1 page layout because I only had a few pictures I wanted to include so I didn't want to drive myself crazy trying to fill the space on 2 pages!

I LOVE the layout of the pictures and the patterned paper on this one. It is very clean and yet it shows off that patterned paper that I so love!!!

Here is a close up of the title. It is chipboard (Lot of Letters pack) that I inked up with a black craft pad.

I ALWAYS include some sort of journaling on my scrapbook layouts. I don'y just want to glue pictures to paper and not tell my kid's the stories behind the pictures. My favorite way to add journaling right now is on 1/2 inch stripes of cardstock. And I think that the journaling on this page will really tell my kids what I was thinking when I asw these adorable pictures...

The pictures were taken just a couple of weeks ago. Now don't get me wrong- I have hundreds of pictures from the last several years that are not scrapped yet. But I was moer inspired by these new pictures- so I went with it. Often if I force myself to scrap pictures that I am not inspired by- it takes FOREVER to finish the layout! This one only took me about 30 minutes and that includes the time designing and picking pictures. My advice to those struggling with their scrapbooks- don't worry about "catching up." Just tell the stories that are most important to you right now!

That's enough from me!!! I will be back on Monday. Have a great weekend!

Very cute page...and pictures! :)
I remember hearing years ago that you should scrapbook current pictures first because you're more likely to remember more about those times. I'd be happy if I could just get anything scrapbooked. lol
