Get Organized & Be Inspired

so.. of late, I've been pretty preoccupied with my scrapbooking addiction. Since starting the class at Big Picture Scrapbooking, I've been totally consumed with getting things organized in a systematic way that ultimately leads to kicking out pages. I've got so many current photos that i want to get in albums and that doesn't include all the heritage photos I have of moms.

I do feel like I'm prorgressing according to plan, though.
One of our first assignments was to create a mission statement on why we scrapbook.
I scrapbook to honor family members - both my living family and those that have passed.I also do it to help remember life...every day life as well as special events. The special vacations, like Italy, Germany, etc. and also to have fun with my friends; to spend time on "me".

One of last week's assignment was to document the steps taken to create a scrapbook page. My responses to the quiz in the workbook brought awareness to my approach to scrapbooking. The more I recognize how I naturally approach it, the easier it will be for me to develop an organized space - which is, after all, the main reason I am enrolled in the class.
Here's the page I created:

Design was crop-lifted, of course, because I have no creativity.
I'm going to work on that....
This is a picture from circa 1950 when my mother was in the second grade.
I'm anxious to share this with her.....

That's it for now.
Thanks for stopping by!
