Finally blogging.....

My intention for this year was to keep up with my blogging and finish my daughters' high school albums.  As you can see, I have fallen behind on my blogging and am struggling with my scrapping....just can't seem to get in any kind of rhythm.  

I would prefer scrapping layouts of Ava, but knowing that if I get started on layouts for my darling granddaughter, I won't ever finish the ones that I need to do for the girls.....oh, dear! 

I scrapped this layout in January for Raegen, this is her DH in high school,  and am just now taking the time to add it to my blog.  I used a sketch from Sketches for Scrapbooking Volume 6 by Debbie Sanders & Allison Davis.  This is my first sketch book from these wonderful ladies, hope to have more one volumes one of these days.  

Lately I have been catching up on my journaling on several of my finished layouts, mostly track layouts.  Since the main reason that I started scrapping in the first place was to keep a record of school activities & sports....the journaling/stats is an important part of the layout.  I am fortunate to have all of the results from their cross country & track meets since DH was the coach!  Today I am working on journaling, title, & adding elements to a layout that I started a couple of years ago & never completed.  It happens to be one of my favorite layouts, I really like the paper & sketch, hope to add it to my blog when I am finished.  

Now that I am current on my is time to head to my scrap space! Wishing everyone a good weekend!
