little steps....

after the monster print i just made (125+ prints) i am making sure to take it easy and scrap at a more leisurely pace.
digiscrapping is so very addictive, more so than traditional i think just because it is so easy to just make pages anytime or anywhere.
and so i am taking it sllllllllloooooowwwwwwwww:)

using stash: project life supplies:)

so i have to admit that my stab @ project life was an epic fail.
i got to the month of may and i ran out of steam.
maybe it is because digital scrapbooking made more sense to me? i am not sure.
BUT..... i am not one to hoard anymore or to waste stuff, so while watching tv i decided to tackle a photo box of pictures that was in the basement.
my bed was full of little piles of memories.

the mostly empty box after i made all my piles:)

i filled up a bunch of page protectors with pictures that i had not scrapped.
this made me very, very happy:)

for now, the pictures are in the album...waiting for embellishments, but to have them IN something is huge
being able to look at them is even BIGGER!

i repurposed the plastic divider boxes for small paper pieces that i will probably use for the albums.
lots of little tabs, project life and ki memories pieces.

the best pictures i put in my to scrap box...all nice and organized for whenever i want to paper scrap:)
if nothing else, this stuff is ready to go!

more irene scrapping:)

we hunkered down  for miss irene, waiting for her to make landfall.
all the devices were charged just in case we lost power.
thankfully our little island borough was spared the worse of the category one hurricane.
digi*scrapping came to the rescue again...there is no way i would have had the attention span to make any paper pages.
today i sent off a printing order of roughly 125 8x8 pages that document the better part of our summer, along with a shutterfly album that was a steal.
the great majority of those pages were made with freebies and inexpensive digital supplies and for that i am grateful:)
i am a happy girl for sure:)
