the countdown is on to LOAD

May Blinkie LOAD 5.11

Layout-a-day starts on May 1st. I'm excited, but nervous at the same time. I'm excited, because I know that I can finish the month with 31 new layouts in my albums, but nervous because I have only created one layout since February!

Yes, I know I said I was going to scrap every day during March. I took Karen Grunberg's "Finding your Way" class during March and April, and it reinforced a lot of the things I learned during LOAD (but will need to remind myself of them during May), but life got in the way, and I allowed myself to not make the effort, and once I started not-creating, it was easy to keep not-creating.

So during the next couple of days I'm going to be shuffling papers and alphabets and photos and embellishments on my desk, trying to make a workable space for Sunday morning. And I need to pack my tote for a crop on Saturday night - my first real application of the things I have learnt about my scrapbooking style.

And I'll be reminding the family that I will be scrapping every day, and working on ideas to keep the momentum going once the month is over.

  1. Good luck on getting all 31 done.

  2. Oh Good luck - I struggle with 2 a week.

  3. A layout every day? Oh my goodness - I can't wait to see them all. I have problems with one a week ;-)
