Don’t think I have forgotten you all. I still love you. I just got myself sucked into a scrapbooking challenge. I have no clue how I do this to myself. I used to hate scrapbooking. I mean really hate it. I thought it was a huge waste of time and money. I liked classic photo albums. Black pages with simple photo corners. I still do.
But today… I am a scrapbook fiend. I love paper. I love pretty colors and combining the solids and the patterns. I love the challenge of a good layout. I still am not into 3-d stickers and all the embellishments people come up with.
So what do I do? I thought I’d give the scrapbooking section of Soul of Adoption a look. I was hooked! They have a quarterly challenge. You say how many pages you can finish or you want to finish in the quarter. I am so behind on my scrapbooking that I challenged myself to 30. 30 pages is a ton. It isn’t so much that I am a glutton for punishment. It is that at the moment I don’t have web designs to do, chocolates don’t start for another 2 weeks and the only major thing coming up for us in the next 3 months is Graduation Sunday for our kids at church. I have some time.
This will be a good way for me to get away from my computer for a little bit. Don’t worry, I’ll still post. And I promise I’ll try to get some photos of the boy up soon.
