Ah, that hobby I used to enjoy for something like forty minutes EVERY DAY.
Wasn't that long ago. But man, it feels like a while! Adjusting to this new scrapbook-every-once-in-a-while-in-between-working-on-project-life thing has been tough. Whenever I start a layout, it feels a little rusty at first, since it's been a few days (or weeks) since I've had the pleasure of pushing around the pieces and making them feel "just so."
And the biggest adjustment? Is learning that I can't buy supplies to the level I used to. It's just too overwhelming to have so much stuff, and since I'm making way less layouts each month, more things are sitting around. So I've lowered the 'ol scrap budget, and have been trying to show restraint:)
Today I do have one of those few and far between layouts to share!
Here's a close look:
And the full shebang. I titled this layout my lovely, lovely girl which is something I like to whisper to my E when she's drinking her bottle at night.
The photo is a faked instagram--I wanted to get the look, but didn't have a smartphone just yet, so I used a fun filter online, cut the photo into a square, and backed in with black cardstock. Voila!
I love the soft colors in this layout--I think they're so "me."
How often do YOU get to scrapbook?
