yesterday i NEEDED to get out! in record time i managed to find new papers and goodies that took me far over my budget....uh oh.
i grabbed one of my "basic necessity" bins from our garage on the way into the house....and went to work immediately.
i find it takes a clear head for me to scrapbook. i was amazed at how my energy recovered as i worked away. i even woke up this morning and scrapped some more. out of character for me! but when you have a certain girl who woke up at 6:23am....and i still had designs running through my brain....well, it just worked.
the one difference these days is that i don't have ALL my supplies available. most are packed up and not worth the trouble to get. instead i am seeing my limitations as a challenge. i am also learning that i depend on flowers, gems, brads and ribbon more than i expected. oh, and a variety of letter stickers too.
so instead of focusing on perfection....i focused on having fun!
even my masking tape came in handy. and the stapler.
this was a lot of fun!
YOU are growing so fast! each & every DAY with you is even more fun and i cannot believe that your 3rd year is nearly complete. but you are still my lovable boy.
i really like this photo. and i thought it worked well with the CollagePress papers.
i wanted to add journaling here, but couldn't find the right spot. then i decided that the photos speak for themselves!
