Scrapbook Challenge!

Today is National Scrapbooking day and May is National Scrapbooking Month! I know, it seems there is a day/month for everything, but sometimes I just need an excuse to get motivated! My pictures should be in books for my family to look at, not in boxes or stuck on my computer.

The last couple of years, I've issued a challenge to finish 31 scrapbook pages (an average of one per day) during the month of May.

It's been awhile since I sat down to scrapbook other than doing my exchanges. But I hope to change that this month. I have a lot of partially finished pages that need journaling and/or pictures. I hope to finish all those up as well as add many more.

I also hope to finish my 2006 albums. I'm pretty close, but am down to those pictures that haven't quite fit into my exchange pages.

My other goal with this is to use more stuff than I buy, It's part of my New Year's Resolution. I'm not sure I'm ahead for the year, but I'll be keeping track this month. With thousands (yes, thousands) of sheets of paper, yards of ribbon, 100+ stamps, and embellishments galore, I think it's do-able.

I would love you to join me with this challenge. I'll be posting photos (hopefully) every week and I would love to hear how you are doing with it also!

So, here's to scrapping...hopefully I can get a bit done today!
