Wow it's May!!

Hi everyone or anyone!!  I haven't posted since January!! I can't believe it!  My goal was to post every week, and it seems that every week has been hectic and crazy,  then add in some health issues and here we are, it's may.  Well, I got a new laptop, so I have been busy transferring everything over to the new one!!  I spent many many nights and weekends working hard on the 8x8 scrapbooks for the "grandmas" of Khloe and of course the one for my step-daughter who had a baby boy back in september!   The scrapbooks were of Khloe's first year, and all the grandma's loved their albums!!Well those are now all completed and the last one went out in the mail yesterday!!  Success!!  The thing is though, I've worked on those albums for over 1 year...  4 albums, and of course one for me (that will never have an end!)  It was hard letting them go!!  I know it sounds goofy, but, do you know what I mean??  You put your heart and soul into the books and then give then away, hoping that they bring as much joy to the person they are meant for, as the joy I had making them!!

So, now that those books are done, I am now going to return to working on some pages for my album!!  Here is the neat thing about my pages, they are shared pages!!  One of my best friends can design a page that should be in a magazine!!  She will often send me pictures of her pages, and then I use them for inspiration.  Because, when I am finished with my page, it looks nothing like hers, yet the inspiration or colors came from her.  AND what is even neater is the encouragement I received from my scrapping girl friends as I worked on them!!  So, I guess my message to everyone is, share your creations with others!!  Encourage each other in their creativeness!!  It can all be inspirational!!

On that note, let me share with you the first page of my book about Khloe's first year!!  (for those of you that don't know me well, Khloe is my beautiful grandaughter, who just turned one!)  I hope that it gives you inspiration to create a page of your own!!

Enjoy!!  And happy scrapping!!
