2 Page scrapbook lay out

OK, I have been TRYING hard to get back into scrap booking. John loves to look at my books as much as the kids do, but I am so far behind, I don't know how I will ever catch up. One thing I did discover is that having premade pages makes it so much easier. I have decided to start making 12 x 12 pages ahead of time to use at a later date. This worked well for me 2 weeks ago when I got together with some very good girl friends to scrap. Some pages, like the ones below, I made on the spot. Certain occasions need certain papers and emblies that I might not already have on hand. We made a quick trip to Hobby Lobby and I got a winter pack of paper (50% off too). I have also decided to only scrap pictures I want to display...every pictures doesn't need to be scrapped. Maybe I will get back into this like I was before now. Here's hoping!

Isn't it fun to scrapbook? Your pages are great and the pre-made page idea is brilliant!

Deciding to scrap only the pics you want vs. trying to squeeze them in makes things much easier. Sometimes it's much easier to scrap three or five photos rather than 10. Pretty soon you'll be cropping pics and doing fancy things digitally before printing...lookout! LOL!
