One of the things you might hear alot of scrapbookers say is "I will never be caught up!"
It can be very discouraging to see the boxes and boxes of photos, or the countless files on my computer, that have yet to be documented. As much as I love scrapbooking, being "backed up" can often times take away from the fun of creating. I struggled with this alot last year and because of that I hardly got any pages done.
Finally this year I'm taking a step back. I decided that I am going to put all of my past photos in regular ole albums so that they are at least being enjoyed! And now I am starting fresh with my 2009 photos, of course I am already monstrously behind LOL but it is way less daunting then going all the way back to 2002!
I am also trying to really stretch myself creatively this year. I recently entered a project challenge with my local scrapbook store. My first ever! I didn't win :( but it was still a very exciting experience and I'm looking forward to participating in the next one.
So I wanted to share a few photos with you of the project I made and also photos of the layouts I made when I spent a weekend at the beach with a few of my girlie friends. Sidenote: I can NOT believe I never blogged about that weekend! UGH. Let's just say it was all sorts of crazy fun! :)
