I have spent so much time focusing on my other blog, that I have really been neglecting the scrapbooking that I need to get done. As part of a New Year's resolution, I am promising myself 1 full layout a week. It's a lot to ask of myself, so I am allowing myself to count a layout that is done, but that I get the pictures printed and on the page, along with journaling, that will count as the completed layout for the week. I'm hoping that I will find the time to do my own pages for at least half of the year, though. So I bring you the layout for this last week, and I will be finishing this week's layout today.
I actually made this layout a couple of months back when we had a girl's night out with my sisters and my sister in law. We went to a local scrapbooking store and spent the night scrapping away. It is then that I realized just how out of the scrapbooking scene I am. Although I'm really happy with how this layout turned out, it took me almost all night, and I don't feel like it looks like what you would find in a scrapbook store. But then I realized that this is my type of scrapbooking, and although I know my style will change throughout my life, (and maybe it will change a lot over the year as I get back into scrapbooking), but for right now, this is me.
The title of my blog is "Always Behind" because really, I am always behind. This is the first layout I've scrapbooked with Josh and I, and we have been married for over 2 years, and have been together for over 3!! I am almost finished scrapbooking the whole year of 2004, which will be a milestone, because there is not one year that I have completely finished yet. Hopefully this will change over the next year!!
Anyway, these pictures are from December of 2006. My office has another office in California, and for a couple of years, they flew the Utah office out the California office for the Christmas party. The year before, the company paid for a rental car for two couples to share, but since we wanted to kind of do our own thing and to not have to worry about sharing a car with anyone else, we rented our own car. It was a great decision, because we did a lot of driving, and had a lot of fun. This is from one day that we drove up to Santa Monica and spent hours walking along the beach and taking pictures.And if you are interested, I have this same layout (without the photos, of course) for sale at Scrapifieds. You can find it in my store.
Also, I know that no one reads this right now, but I am trying to find the best way to get my layouts online. I am scanning them right now, but they don't scan the best. If you can see from pictures, the layout looks curved, and the colors are a little bit off. I use a program called autostitch to stitch them together, buy any suggestions to get them online better would be appreciated!!
