Welcome to my Blog!

Let me first welcome you to my scrapbooking blog. The main reason for this blog is to encourage fellow scrapbookers and myself to get started and motivated to scrapbook. So many of my friends say they are SOOOOO behind in scrapbooking, years behind. I am four years behind in scrapbooking. Scrapbooking used to be a fun thing for me to do. I want to make it fun again and to get scrapping again. As mom's, we put so many things first, before ourselves and things that make us happy. I feel that I have lost who I am, throughout the years. Please don't take this the wrong way, I LOVE being a mom and a wife but I also like being Cheryl. I'm tired of making a New Year's resolution, to get caught up in scrapbooking. I want to enjoy and get creative in my scrapbooking. Last year I thought I could work on 3 albums at the same time and that would be the easiest way to get "caught up". Well now I have my 2006 album done up to July, 2007 is done up to April, and 2008 is done up to March. 2009 isn't started yet. Instead of feeling accomplished, I feel useless that I didn't get "caught up". I should be able to find time to do the things I love to do for myself.

I hope this blog gives encouragement and motivates people to do things they enjoy doing. I'm also a goal driven individual, and I hope this holds me accountable. I will post my lastest projects and let you know my accomplishments. When I get myself organized I will also ask for advice on new things. Sometimes I feel that my pages are in a rut. I would love to learn new things. Please post any comments and let me know your thoughts.

Happy Scrapping!!
