Scrapbook Tuesdays

I love Tuesdays. My college roommate (whom I got into scrapbooking), Jeymi, comes over every Tuesday to scrap. I don't have a scrap room (yet) so we scrap on my dining table. We're still pretty new to it compared to a lot of people on 2peas so it takes us about 1-2 hours per page. I think if I had a scrap room with good organizers for all our stuff, we could create more than 1 page every week. We'll get there... we always talk about opening a scrapbook store when we retire and scrap all day... that would be a dream come true.

Here are 2 that I did the last 2 weeks. I've been on this thing about wanting to add more personal touches to my layouts.


Sorry for the bad scan...



I'm wanting to start drawing again and to not be afraid to be artistic. It's been hard for me because growing up, i LOVED to draw and was decently good at it. But somewhere in the 'growing up', I stopped drawing and stopped being creative and felt like i lost it all. I began to be afraid of how ugly it would turn out. How "un-creative" it is to others. I was afraid that it would just be junk. My drawings then became never good enough and I was ashame of it. Now, i'm starting to overcome the fears of it all again... slowly but surly, I'm not letting fear get the best of me. And as scary as it is to pick up that pencil to doodle, it's all so exciting at the same time.


kreativekell has such an awesome theme going on about facing our fears. It really speaks volumes to me. She just posted week 2's exercise, and i think i'll work on it tonight along with doing a layout with Jeymi. If you're reading this Kelly, Thank You.

I'm grateful for a very supportive husband who encourages me to think outside the box and pushes me to do what I love... that really is priceless
