Sometimes life hands you lemons... like when we ordered the book 52 More Scrapbooking Challenges the day it came out and yet we didn't get our order and by the time everything was straightened out - it was backordered for like... FOREVER.
Today we make lemonade!! It finally came in and we have it on the shelf.
I have grabbed one of these and I am going to do it challenge by challenge. When I said that I wanted to stay inspired and be creative... well here is a fantastic way to do it. I am so excited about this!! I think some of it is going to be difficult - but how fun to push yourself outside your box. I can't wait to see what happens (and I will let you see, too!). If you get this book and are doing the challenges - post your layouts on our facebook page because I would love to see your pages, too.
I have done this off and on in the past, but I am really going to try to do it a lot more in the future - I am going to keep a little notebook near me at all times so I can write down things that I just don't want to forget so I can scrapbook them when I get to it.
Like tonight - I happen to know that one of the challenges is to scrapbook a great memory even though you don't have the photo. When I was putting Sophie to bed, we just had one of those really goofy moments where she was laughing one of those honest belly laughs that just makes you want to remember that moment forever. So - even though there was no camera, I want to make sure I remember that small little moment that for me was so big.
So step 1 in my 52 More Challenges journey... get a small notebook and take notes - some of these challenges take some thinking!!
