An Overwhelming Task!

Whew! I just completed a little scrapbooking organizational project. I didn't organize my space or my supplies; I organized my layouts! I am NOT a chronological scrapper, and I often pick photos and memories from various years (decades even!) to scrap. If I reach back too far in time, I end up with a finished page which often needs a date. (Here's where the trouble begins.) The layout will go into a pile, the "look-up" pile. It isn't a very good idea, but once a page is done, I just want to move on!

So...what I did until 1:30 in the morning for two nights in a row was to work on that pile. Consulting date books, old photo albums, photo envelopes, camera image files, etc. I looked up of all those dates, AND put those layouts in their correct chronological scrapbooks. THAT was a lot of work. But now everything's in order, and I am feeling so much better about my books. Yay. Note to self: Don't let that pile get so out of hand. (I found pages created around 2006 in there!)

So now I'm ready to begin a new set of projects with Scraptastic's March kit, It's My Life. Here's a little peek:


 Scraptastic's other kit choice for March is equally awesome:


And sorry for the tease, but this month's This Life Noted kit is already sold out!


The exclusive flair and wood veneers, along with all the other hand-picked embellishments and papers make these kits a cut above! I can't wait to get started on my kit and hope to have some pages to show you next week, along with reveal of the full kit contents.  :)

That was quite a job for you! I know I'd be so relieved to have it done. I just finished putting away about six layouts (LOL) and was happy to get them off my desk. :)
