I'm still plodding along slowly with this project but happy to be able to say that I'm still plodding along. Yes, it's a tad uninspiring to work on due to the restriction I put on myself not to use buttons, brads and all things of a bumpy nature - although I have to say I'm happy with the result as far as how flat these pages are laying in the album. Twenty-six pages in the album so far and it still closes beautifully without needing to add spacers or post extensions - a fiddly, time-consuming task which I really don't enjoy.
Anyway, I recently came up with a good idea to get myself scrapping these photos. Since Jen and I have not been doing any scrappy projects during our weekly get-togethers and don't have plans for any right now, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to work on Project 365. It motivates me to choose my sketches and pull out the supplies I need before going over there, and then I work on my pages while Jen does her own scrappy thing.
A couple of weeks ago I was able to get a good start on Week 13 and then finished it up here at home. As a sidenote, our scrapping came to an end when Robert came home with cranberry-lemon scones from Starbucks and we decided to have tea instead! But, had I not committed to working on my project at Jen's, I know these photos would still be sitting on my desk gathering dust!
I used this double-page sketch from Inspired Blueprints:
And with Week 13 finished that means I'm officially one-quarter done this project! Here's hoping I can turn out some more pages in the near future!
Until next time...
