I think I have finally found the key to successfully keeping up with scrapping. I've started using Project Life cards on my LOs instead of patterned paper and things just fall into place so much easier. Most of the time there is already a title on the card so I can just add my picture(s) and embellishments and just like that, done!
Once I started my PL album for this year it filled the gap that was left when I didn't have time to scrap. Now that Chen Chen is back in school I have a couple of mornings a week to work on things & i'm enjoying doing full size LOs again, of course that means I am a few weeks behind in PL though but I can catch up on that quickly.
