Snow fun!
Spring Ahead already!!

I've been taking Stacy Julien's Library of Memories class at BigPictureScrapbooking and it is soooo fabulous.  I've been understanding the whole concept throughout the past 8 lessons.  To be able to scrapbook for fun, to scrapbook what I want when I want and not feel guilty because Christmas hasn't been scrapped, for example or Jacques' book is way behind.  My books are no long chronological and I like it!  GUILT FREE!!  I had stopped scrapping chronologically a while ago, but having my books in no particular order is so freeing!

THEN, the other day, I actually experienced it!  I was thinking about how I could dress up these little albums and drawers that Krista gave me... and it hit me that I was doing this without any guilt to what I should be scrapping.  Unlike before this class, I never once gave a thought to all those unscrapped photos, or how behind I was or how much time this project would take away from those.  Before this class I never did many other projects because I felt like they were taking away precious time and energy from the scrapbooking I should be doing... getting caught up.  Well, now I am caught up, in my own way, which is not having to be caught up at all! LOL

Below is a scan from Cathy Zielske's book Clean & Simple Scrapbooking - the Sequel  Love this!!!  It makes so much sense doesn't it? Just click on it to make it big enough to read :)


Ok, I know I've been gone a long time, and I need to update a little about our trip.  It's just that it seems like such a huge, overwhelming job that I kept avoiding it.  Today, I decided to just jump right in and blog about something else.  Just to get something posted.  Maybe I'll be back soon and update Canada in point form, maybe...
