Story Board~3.31.2010

Can you believe it’s the last day of March already? I wouldn’t either, if not for all of the pretty spring colors popping up in the galleries in digi-land. Check out these great examples of “real life” scrapping on today’s Story Board … We had a motto when I worked at the newspaper … if […]

Not Eggs-actly What I Had in Mind

Easter is just days away, bringing with it all kinds of photo and scrapbooking opportunities… Little girls all dolled up in their fancy dresses, shiny shoes and pretty hats. Little boys looking all dapper and adorable. Squeals of excitement as the kids spy a goodie-filled basket. More squeals as they discover the carefully hidden eggs. […]

A Hobby 30+ Years in the Making

As a digi-scrapper, I have copies of all of my layouts in a folder on my hard drive and that folder is linked to my screensaver, so when I actually step away from my computer for more than a few minutes, a slideshow of my scrapbook pages starts running on my screen. My girls love […]

Creative Pursuits: The Goal

If you’ve been following along with me the past week, beginning with last Saturday’s blog post and continued through various forum posts in the Creative Pursuits social groups forum, you know I’ve been working on clarifying my first goal and developing a Vision Board to go along with it.

A Page for All Seasons

Story Board~3.24.2010

This week’s Story Board is bright, it’s springy, it’s full of wonderful ideas, and it’s been compiled especially for us this week by March Calendar Girl Lydia Tarbox (ltarbox). Fill your senses with these beautiful pages found in our neighboring galleries… I love the bright colors of this layout. And, the photos are just pictures […]

Ugly? Yes. Worth Scrapping? Absolutely.

My kitchen is, for lack of a better word … gross. Our house is nearly 100 years old and when we bought it almost six years ago, it was definitely a “fixer-upper.” Since that time, we’ve done a ton of work … stripped paint off the trim in the room that is now my office, […]

10 Ideas for Dating Your Layouts

When it comes to dating scrapbook layouts, it seems people either do it consistently … or rarely do it at all.

Creative Pursuits: An Invitation

So I thought I’d try something different this weekend … and I’m hoping you will join me. But first, a little background … I’ve been a “self-help junkie” for as long as I can remember. As a very quiet, not terribly social preteen and teenager, I spent hours reading – and my preferred genre was […]
