Officially Behind...

Well, as much as I hate to admit it, as we come to the end of Week 16 of the year, I am Officially Behind Schedule. Or, to put a slightly more positive spin on it, I've been on Scrapping Hiatus. Either way, I've just got the one layout to post this time. Here's No. Thirteen:

Doing this page made me realise how differently I work on layouts now than when I first started scrapbooking. Back then, I used to plan everything before I dared to cut out or stick down anything - mainly because I was so worried about making mistakes. (It was for Posterity, after all...ho hum) Now, I have no idea how a page is ultimately going to look as I begin it; it's all down to experimenting and letting the thing evolve. It's less a case of "but what if it doesn't work?", and instead a focus on "I wonder what would happen if...?"  Much more satisfying! And besides, there's always another page.

I'll try to catch up a bit over the next few weeks, but in the spirit of 2012's jettisoning the "should do's", if it doesn't happen, I won't beat myself up over it. There are always peaks and troughs in Creativity World; next month I may be so inspired it's all I can do to STOP scrapping... We'll see!

Have a wonderful week :)


  1. Hi Dani,

  2. Hi Danielle :) It was so nice to meet you the other day... I love your layout philosophy... I worry about mucking up a LO,and spend too much time shuffling things around. You are right, thres always another page.
