Five Months From Inspiration To Posting

It's been five months since my initial inspiration to scrap the photos I'm sharing today! Typically I work on one layout or project until it is complete, then I clean up my work space before starting something new. I photograph the project and post it to my blog very soon after it's completed. I rarely having anything "in process."

However, the layouts I'm sharing today all started five months ago. Here's a look at the timeline:
March - pulled photos, papers (from a kit that my friend Amy gave me in February) & embellishments to create page kits to take to a crop in April.
April - completed quite a few layouts at the crop, but not the three I'm sharing today.
May - added sketches from the BPC Sketch Solutions workshop & took the kits to Ellyn's Crafty Tuesday and put three layouts together, however I didn't include journaling & needed a few additional embellishments.
June - added journaling & additional embellishments to complete the layouts. Took photos and edited them for the blog.
July - finally sharing them here on the blog!



These photos were taken on a FUN day in 2012, so I guess these layouts have actually been "in the works" for a couple of years! So excited to add them to our 2012 album!

I love blowing bubbles - thanks for the reminder to ensure there are some here for our summer party :) That is a big statue of Eisenhower.

Most importantly, they are done :) I need to find out where our children's librarian bought her bubble blower. It blows hundreds of small bubbles, so cool!

Thanks for sharing. Your blog posts are awesome. I often think I need to blog and then just never seem to find the time. I do have the inspiration that I would love to share but just can't figure out a way to get motivated. Any tips on how you got started and why you blog would be awesome. Thanks again.

What brilliant bow ties ... You have such a varied style. I think my favourite is the second one - that background paper is just perfect for your photos, and the simple treatment really makes the most of them.

Great pages - 5 months is a long time for them to be in process. I would have lost the pieces in a much shorter time period. That last page is my fave - loving the bow ties too.

Great journaling card. :)

LOVE that first layout. The detail photos from the trail are wonderful.

I can relate. I actually created a sketch and printed the photos for a layout well over a year ago. They are still laying on one of my tables. Maybe in August . . .

Love your layouts. But the feeling of finishing them is the best!

I've so enjoyed this post. I'm always in awe how well you scrap, so to hear a bit of your process, is really interesting. Also as always, your pages are a joy to see
