In March, I decided to start challenging myself to scrapbook a little each month. I had just signed up with Close to My Heart and thought I would try their Workshops Your Way Scrapbooking Kits. This has been such a great experience and I have completed so many layouts. The only problem I ran into was how much time I was wasting searching for the right pictures. I had pictures everywhere! They were in 4 or 5 different organizers, Shutterfly envelopes, and plastic boxes. (more…)
Today was the first day back to school for us! That means we are back to packing lunches every day. Surprisingly, I have never put a lunch box note in Gavin’s lunch in the 3 years that he has been going to elementary school. I have pinned a lot of printable ones from Pinterest and still have never followed through. (more…)
I stopped working three weeks ago. I really thought I would have more time to get myself organized and be more on top of my scrapbooking. Boy, was I wrong!!! I have been busier than ever! I keep finding so many fun things to go and do with the kids. Maybe once summer is over, I will buckle down and get some things done. For now I am just going to enjoy making the memories! 🙂 (more…)
As I mentioned last month, I have challenged myself to scrapbook every month. My goal is to complete three double page layouts using the Workshop Your Way Scrapbooking Kits by Close to My Heart. I could not meet this challenge without the help of these kits. They keep me focused on what I am working on and give me a starting point. Once I choose a kit, I decide what kind of pictures I want to use. Since I have several years of pictures to do this has not been a problem. (more…)
Last month I participated in a blog hop where I tried using one of the Workshop Your Way Scrapbooking Kits from Close to My Heart. I enjoyed that so much that I challenged myself to try another one and share it with you this month. I chose the Some Kinda Wonderful line this time. This is the last month this kit will be available. There is a whole new line coming out in May and I am super excited about those too! (more…)

Scrapbooking has always been one of my favorite hobbies but I just can’t seem to find the time! I probably have 10 years worth of photos that need a home. I have considered just slipping them all into albums and calling it a day. (more…)
