Refocus !!!!!!!

Good morning, I know its been quite here, I have been going through some upheaval when it comes to my scrapping commitments. 

This industry is a funny little thing especially when it comes to behind the scenes things, and the time it takes to do them, then of course theirs an knock on effect that flowing into family life, friendships and also to your creativity. There comes a point when the balance is thrown off and sometime you get overly invested, this I can say happened to me.

At the start of the year I picked my little word.... 

I need to allow this word to work for me and that means some readjustment and some focus out of what I want to do with my creative life. And if I invest to much time with others that doesnt allow myself a lot of time to do my dreams and goals. If I work this hard for others its time to work this hard for myself!!! 

So to kick off the new creative part of my life, heres a layout I did for the Top 50 Challenge (yes a layout for fun!!!), nothing like loading it close to the deadline I will work on that....

Good morning, I am here today with my final layout for Scrapping Clearly of the month and its a mad dash to make sure everything is labelled and ready to go for the first day back to school...... can you tell I am really excited?!!!! The kids not so much, I cant imagine why? 

I am sharing another birthday layout and if your anything like me, your way behind in scrapping these moments, sure I had great intentions not to get to far behind, at one point I was only 2 years behind now if I am completely honest I am about 7 years behind now. I often ask how did that happen!!! So with my project 365 layouts..... hopefully I can cut a year or two off the list..... might have to go organize my photos in year groups again, to keep me on task.

Good morning I am here today for Scrapping Clearly with another layout using My Minds Eye - My  Story range. I have decided that for this year I have set myself a task of doing 365 layouts!!! I know insanity!!! 

I have to admit it, my mojo flows best when I have deadlines, and if I don't have these deadlines I tend to do a lot of paper shuffling and not much more. I last year for 2015 did 224 layouts and 37 canvases, so I figured it wasn't too much of a stretch, as long as I do 7 layouts a week....... 

So no more procrastination!!! is all about scrapping the photos I have and to just get on with it instead of worrying about the perfect embellishments or papers, time to re- adjust and re-focus on the photos and the stories that make up our day to day lives.

The Sweetest Thing

Good Morning, how are you going? I am loving this so far, however I am struggling with keeping a time frame that allows me to catch up. 

I just found an awesome app to try and keep me on task its called 30/30 you can set up your task with breaks in between etc. My problem is I think  I am slightly addicted to being online more importantly checking FB every like 10 mins..... especially messenger hear that ding have to go and see what its about. So with the app and my music on I am going to do a layout in 40 mins.... I will pick the range before hand and stick to it!!!! 

How long does it take you to do a layout? I so want to be one of those 30 mins awesome layout kinda gals...... hmmm one day right?



Till next time have a creative day....

Many Faces

Good morning, dont adjust your eyes you are seeing a slightly blurred photo.... 

I will have to re- take it at one point but at the moment it will do, its all about the massive task to catch up on my Project 365 and about being consistent at it. 

Have you noticed that some of these layouts are including journalling? Well rather than add it later after the blog post is done I decided that it would help with the efficiency of the project, so you will see a lot more and maybe some hidden tags etc.

One in a Million

Good morning, how are you? I am here to share another layout for my 365 layout project and this is going to be out of order till I catch up next month and have a flow with my design team projects and these projects - see I told you it was going to be a  work in progress!!! 

However you will be able to see the number layout down the bottom to keep track and I will fill you all in at the end each month of my tally. As I said in the previous post its all about scrapping all my back log of photos, so the rough way I think I am going to work it is do a couple of layouts out of a range I pull out of my stash, scrap them (then tidy up) then put the remainder of the stash back for another day.  The aim is to turn over a couple of quick -sih layouts without getting bored with the paper, and I have no worries about running out lol...... I am sure there's a few of you all out there too.

Anyone going to join me??????
