Page after page after page....
I did warn you, didn't I? Here are just some of the pages that have been keeping me busy that last 3 days. I can't describe how great it feels to have completed a huge chucnk of my scrapbooking that has been waiting for me. Like I said before, there is still at least this much again still waiting for me before being caught up, but I know I can do it~ Imagine - scrapbooking photos as I go. Printing off the photos, taking them to the store, picking out the right papers, the right embellishments, and completing the layout just as I want it. It's not every scrappers dream, but it IS mine. I can't stand having something undone hanging over my head. The idea of being (and staying ) caught up makes me feel so light! Will I actually STAY caught up? Hmm.. not sure. I've never gotten to the point of being caught up yet, so I can't really say.
If nothing else - I completed the summer 2007 album, which was a HUGE chunk of photos. I was smart about it, though - I printed most of them as wallet sized prints, and only chose a few to print larger. I was able to fit dozens of photos onto fewer pages, which made the process simpler and quicker. I'm going to do that far more often. I also realized that I can scrap an event in a 2 page spread, not neccesarily in 6 or 8 pages! - I don't have to scrap EVERY photo either. It's okay! Just pick 2 or 3 or 4 photos that really encompass your feelings about that day. I've also started taking fewer photos, which has made the narrowing down process much, much easier. Yes, I suppose I CAN get caught up and STAY caught up in 2008!
