A New Goal

I've decided that my new goal with my scrapping this year is to end the year with now pages in my work-in-progress folder. Let's see if I can manage that. I'd better get off the computer, attend to the crying kid, finish the housework then start work on my pages in my folder.
Wish me luck.

Getting some scrapping done

I have been scrapping almost every night for 3 weeks now. I'm getting good at quick layouts thanks to the inspiration of one of the ladies in the class at the scrapbooking show. She said she does most of her layouts in half an hour!!!! What a challenge. I've managed to do two 30 minute or under layouts in 2 days. I guess it's good. The quality might not be the best but the memories are recorded and that's the main thing. Right??

Here are two of my recent layouts. Yes, I know. I still haven't worked out the camera yet. Need lessons. Hint, hint.

Some layouts

This is the page done in half an hour. I included the shell that Jessica found at the beach.
I really need to get better at photographing my layouts because my photos don't really do them justice but it is better than not having them at all.
I really wish I could put these photos in a better order. The upload thingy is really annoying me.

It's back to work

Well the school holidays ended today for me. Kevin went back to work. Boo hoo!!! This means my holiday ha ended too. This means there is no one to help me during the day. No one to send the kids to when I want 5 mins peace. Oh holidays are so good. Now the real routine of life begins. I started well this morning (even though I didn't go for a swim) with the vacuuming, washing, dishes and the usual morning routine of making beds,cleaning kids room etc. Now I just have to clean the bathroom an toilet and Mondays jobs are done. I was going to brave the walk to town this morning but I got up too late and now it is too hot so I drove and got the shopping. I even bought a pie for Kevin and dropped it off to work for him. I'm a great wife I know.
So the kids are now settled down in front of the computer and Hannah is trying to go to sleep I might try to photograph some of my layouts so I can post them. I'm doing the 20 layouts from my stash challenge on the Scrapbooking Memories forum. I've completed my first 20. Now I'm doing it all again using my supplies from the scrapbooking show (and the rest of my stash). I've already done 4 of 20. Last night I got a layout done in under half an hour!!! It's nothing special but it is done and another memory is recorded. Will hopefully upload some today. Better get this girl off to sleep.

It's time for a cuppa

It's that time again. Since I got home from Brisbane it always seems time for a cuppa. Kevin says it's because he missed my wonderful cups of tea so much that he's trying to make up for it. For me it gives me an excuse to stop for a few minutes. It's time for a cuppa because the kids are in bed without any excuses, crying or complaining and they are asleep!!!! Oh the joys of motherhood sometimes.
It's cuppa time then scrap time and I'm going to bed early tonight. You hear? Early. None of this going to bed at 2am then being awake until 3am to get a baby back to sleep. Early, early, early. Did you get that? Maybe if I say it enough I might actually do it for a change. Then again maybe not.
