I've been meaning to share these for months…
I used to scrap nearly every day, and would churn out four or five layouts in a night. These four are my grand total for 2008. It just didn't happen. I've never been one of those "I've got to catch up", "Gotta scrap chronologically" scrappers. I usually scrap what moves me, whether it's a story, a picture…but man, I'll admit, I am definitely feeling the pressure now! I've not scrapped any of David's birth, which was a year and half ago now. Yikes!
(Sorry the journaling is fuzzy. It reads: Man oh man. You two really are trouble squared. While Ben is methodical, Isaiah is an imp to the nth degree. Which basically means every conundrum you get into is impulsively well planned. Even in time out you guys entertain each other. It's hard to keep a straight face while disciplining you guys. And trust me, you spend a lot of time in the corner.)
(Journaling reads: Isaiah, you crack me up. It's like we can almost see the wheels turning. "What can I do to make the family laugh?" "Why does this not go the way I pointed it?" "How tall can I stack these blocks before they fall?" Curious and goofy, that's you. And very creative. You like to make up stories about everything and anything- it's neat to "listen in" while you are playing with your toys. Lately, your big phrase has been "I have an idea!" We never know where those wheels are going to take us next!)
(The distortion on this is pretty bad. I think it's been hanging too long. Whoops! Journaling reads: The tradition continues! My mom gave me a love of reading at a very young age. Some of my favorite memories of my mom are the stories she read to me as a child. When I got older it was a running joke that if you couldn't find mom or I, chances were, we were hiding with our nose in a book devouring chapter after chapter. So while I look at this sweet and innocent picture of a grandmother reading to her grandchildren, little do they know they are being force fed the bookeating disease. Luckily, the symptoms are both terminal and enjoyable.)
A rare two pager. I console myself with the fact that I have gotten one birthday scrapped this last year, even if I didn't get David's birth. Although, the design of this one drove me bonkers forever, and I am still not sure if I like it or not. But I am moving on!
My Work in Progress Friday will be up tommorrow morning. I never thought that playing would be so much fun..
