from that to this:

i found this freebie template.
the clean graphic design is AWESOME.
this is what it looked like after i plugged in my photos

i added pattern papers and elements from three paper peonies.
i also enlarged the whole block a little bit and moved it to fit the oversized brush title from karla dudley.
fast, easy and simple.

my life, my story.

i am all for simplifying and minimizing the scrap these days.
in addition to my project life, i am preparing some pages in this style.
very simple, photo-based pages to tell the stories of our days.
i like doing the more elaborate pages...but time is an issue and so is storage.
it is all good:)

Monthly Project Life.

i divided up my page protectors into 2 albums.
the first is the binder that was included in the kit. i am using that one for my childhood pictures and am getting it done a little at a time.

then, i purchased another ac cloth binder, 2 refills of 12x12 and 4x6 divided protectors.
i divided them up into 12 and now i have a monthly project life:)

we haven't taken many pictures in january between being sick and the weather, so this is perfect for a few pictures, some journaling and other little thingies that might pop up.
my scrapbooking is always evolving and taking different forms, so this is where i am right now.
it is working and it is all good:)

pictures of me:)

lots of soul-searching these days while i have been sick. i guess i have not been able to keep myself busy to not think.
scanning old pictures and trying to make them look a little better will bring up lots of memories.
good and bad and so-so.
embracing my story and putting it on paper is cathartic and therapeutic and heartbreaking and sad all at once.
and it is all good.
