STRESS and SCRAPBOOKING

When my stress levels are out of control the one thing that really takes my mind off of everything is scrapbooking!!!  The past two weeks I have spent a lot of time at my scrapbook table and am now finished with my first book of 2015 ... January to end April.

I have just copied my first two weeks of May photos onto a stick so that I can have them printed.  Tomorrow evening I will start working on my outstanding pages for 2014.  Here are a few pages to share ...


On Saturday we scrapped at Leonie's house in Pretoria ... We took a little trip to the shopping centre close to her house where there is a Creative Talents ... I bought this paper and while looking through my ideas file I saw a layout and thought "that will be good for my paper" ... when I started working on this page I found that it was the same paper!  I love how this layout turned out.

While at Creative Talents I also got paper for my December challenge ... here are a few snippets ...

Unfortunately my flash wouldn't work along with me on this photo ...

This is the last page of Book 1 of 2015 which I finished about an hour ago ... I love this page!!!

  2. Strangely...when my stress levels are high and I am upset...my mind doesn't go quiet enough that I can focus on scrapping. Love your pages.

    1. I had a couple of months where I couldn’t scrap but then I picked myself up and once I got to my scrap table I found that the stress was a little less … Then getting into bed all the nightmares come back and I don’t sleep.

      Tonight I am going to do some work as I need to try and get on top of that … and then hopefully I will be able to sleep tonight.

      I am so happy with what all I have gotten done and I have done some really nice pages … I now need to print my May photos but in the meantime I can get to grips with what I haven’t done for 2014. I really don’t like being so far behind.

      Love you so very much and thanks for the comment on my pages.
