Getting my mojo back

Sometimes it feel so frustrating when something I really love doing - pottering in my scrap area - just feels heavy.  I have been struggling with actually getting things done and have found myself procrastinating and time wasting, rather than doing anything constructive or productive. Having also struggled with a bout of the flu didn't help either!

But finally, I have been able to settle myself down and start my catch up of both scrap pages and pocket scrapbooking. I have been doing 'Project Life" for the past four years and have usually been pretty good at keeping fairly close to being 'up to date'. This year, I have been way behind and have had to push myself to get close to the current date. I've finished up to end of June so feeling pretty accomplished right now!

After a 4 week trip in June to UK and Italy, I also now have my travel photos to print and start that album. I'm still contemplating the best way to make a travel album - I'd like to make it a bit different from the one I did in 2012.

Here are some 9x12 layouts I've completed.  I plan to get some photos or a video of my yearly album over the next few days and will post them once they are done.

I used some old supplies I had (I'm on a spending freeze as I have too much stuff, especially papers) on the layout above. Doing a smaller page creates some different challenges!

Again, using old supplies here. I also fussy cut flowers from the border paper to use as embellishments and was quite happy with the result.

Hopefully I will post over the weekend with pages from my 2017 album.

Until next time ...
