Only a year behind. . .

I tried for years to be a chronological scrapbooker.  I was diligent, I was organized - I was overwhelmed!  Now I take a more relaxed approach - I scrap what I like, what fits the product I want to use, what catches my fancy.  It has made my hobby a lot more enjoyable - and I am free of the "i must catch up" mentality that is a creativity inhibitor in my life!

So here is a layout of my lovely kiddos from LAST Christmas.  Still waiting for my printer to be replaced, so I thought - why not scrap last year's photos?  Genius - practical and in keeping with the festive season!!

I used the CTMH Frosted Workshop on the Go for this one - A great kit that comes with lots of goodies, plus instructions for a double layout,which I of course chose not to use! (That would be too easy!!)

And a little close up of the large snowflake:

Loving my Cricut Artiste Cartridge - I used it to cut the snowflakes and the snowflake border.  Make life SOOOOO easy.  It took me a while to become a convert - but I am hooked now!

Merry Christmas everyone - I am looking forward to some quality time with family and maybe a crafty moment or two over the holidays.  ( and I am still hoping for that printer from Santa. . . I haven't been very naughty at all!!)

Happy Day,


  1. I love your comments... I have been a chronological scrapbooker too for many many years. I struggle with it. Lol! Maybe we need a support group.

  2. Beautiful as always Jacquelin. Merry Christmas


I appreciate your comments - they help me make this blog better! Thanks!
