Scrapbooking Sunday

I love scrapbooking and have a slight addiction to collecting paper and embellishments.  But, I also have a real problem with actually utilizing my collection.  I just can't seem to find the time to work on my projects.  If you are a scrapbooker like me, you are probably so far behind you have no idea how you'll ever catch up!

But, today is just one of those days and I hope to hang around at home and actually work on some scrapbooking.  My project for today is to work on Kaden and Keira's school scrapbooks.  I have to create pages for Keira's first year of preschool and Kaden's two years of preschool and kindergarten - see, I told you I was behind!

I absolutely fell in love with these school scrapbooks!  The bold red cover with a simple embroidered design was just perfect.  I found them in the Oriental Trading Company's scrapbooking catalog for a great price.  Unfortunately, it looks like they don't carry them anymore.

Two hours later (the kids and husband were especially needy today) I have one layout complete, and only three more to go!

Maybe I'll be lucky enough to get caught up on these today.  I'm keeping the pages pretty simple, since we keep school art projects and work in another place.  Are there any scrapbooking projects you've been itching to finish?


  1. I know exactly what you mean, I never seem to have enough time. I think for me, I just need to dedicate a space that's just for scrapbooking. I'm still working on Grace's 1st year and she just turned three. LOL, you could say I'm a procrastinator.

    By the way, those pages look great. Very cute!

  2. Amy, I'm so glad I'm not the only one! Kaden is 6 and I'm 99% done his first year album. Keira turns 4 this weekend and I've barely just begun her first year book.
