But then I took it a step further and went to the Crop at my old church on Saturday in turn getting 4 whole layouts done with those photos!!! Which is totally great for me... That was even part of my 2008 Craft Goal :o)
Here are the completed layouts. All but the Scrumdiddleumptious one were layout designs followed from Close to My Heart's new Imagine Book. I think following those sketches really helps me get out of "road-blocks" I get into it and get it done.
TO-DO... For this week, I think I would like to organize and chose photos for the two layouts of my daughter being 2 years old. The explanation for only two layouts is in THIS POST from last year.
I would also like to get more photos for my son's album printed, but we will see about that one... because that requires me to sketch the layouts to know what size and the photos should but and it requires me resizing them which is explained in THIS POST from last year :o).
Added Thoughts... Lots of computer work, but totally worth it when I am out at crops trying to have fun with my girl-friends.... everything is all nice and planned out... pictures pre-sized, sketches drawn (or chosen from Imagine) and paper picked :o)
Last Saturday I actually went over to my local scrapbook store and purchased 6 sheets of patterned paper (just enough for the layouts I was making that day). I thought it was great and am thinking that is the way to do it from now on... I had nice product to work with yet spent less money because I didn't buy everything I liked. Which brings me to....
Last week's Bonus Question: Do you prefer to stick with only big name-brand supplies or do you usually buy less expensive supplies?... I usually just buy whatever I like, but that is also usually big name-brand stuff. I don't usually buy it unless it is needed for exactly what I am working on though. I noticed having too much paper or embellishments on hand is wasteful, it just sits, gets old and never gets used. So it's quality not quantity with me :o)
This week's Bonus Question: If you could only do one kind of paper crafts for the rest of your life, which craft would you pick?... I will definitely be scrapbooking for the rest of my life. It's a good outlet for me especially since I do it with others once a month as time away from the kiddos.
Sorry for all the yammering, but I really like this whole Scrappin' Sunday thing... helping me plan goals along with sharing accomplishments... it's GREAT!
