I had high hopes of scrapbooking this past week – or at least getting some scrapbooking in during the past three days.  Alas, life did not go according to plan, and neither did my muse.  It just wasn’t in me.

And then, I thought to myself that even though I didn’t “feel creative” I should just sit down and piddle a little with the pictures and see if I got inspired. After all, it’s been months since I’ve scrapbooked and I’m still working on 2010 pictures, for Pete’s sake. (whoever Pete is…)

So, I did just that.

Sat down, opened up my software to see where I’d left off, and before you know it, I’d managed to do six pages! That, along with, feeding kids, retrieving dogs who are escaping their invisible fence, troubleshooting my mom’s email account, answering the phone, well, you get the picture. 

The days of quiet solitude while I scrap are long gone.  But, the nice thing about digital scrapbooking is that I can do just that – scrap in between life’s little interruptions. It doesn’t mean I have to put all the mess away, or pray no one bumps my page in progress. Nope, I just hit the “save” button, take care of the urgent matter, and move right along.

Love it.

Anyway, here are the pages I’ve done: (most of the digital supplies are from the Daily Digi subscription I have. Best investment for high quality digital supplies, I tell ya.)

And as a special treat for you guys – I have uploaded the template for the two pages above to my 4shared account (Creative Memories StoryBook Creator Plus templates) for you to download!

  1. Oh such colourful and pretty pages, Lois! No wonder you’re pleased with them. I love the double-pages of the toys’ tea party – memories of my DS with his “Fuzzy Bear”, having a “carpet picnic” on a chilly autumn day. Love that doggy with the silver milk jug!
    The party looks as if it was wonderful and the day out looks such fun.
    Lovely pages – and thank you so much for sharing the template. I have downloaded it and will try to have a go – my digi scrapping is still very limited, so it’s nice to have some help from a skilled person!

  2. Thanks for the templates! I use SBC and I’ve loved all your templates and scrapbooking posts. Love your blog! Thanks for sharing.
