Photo Collages done over the weekend.


I have a SERIOUS amount of scrapping to do...literally years' worth...I've decided that every page needn't be a master piece...the important thing is to get through the year's & get those memories scrapped. Then (hopefully...) I can get up-to-date & scrap all my photos "in the moment" - every scrapper's dream I know. I just LOVE Picasa's Collage Function & have created 60 collages so far. I have scrapped them & will continue to do so "as is" (stuck on in their entirety) to save on time. Not a bad idea me thinks...


Camryn - December 2008 - note the toothy grin!

February 2009 - Cami & Lilly Bear (a Christmas gift from her daddy).

My Golden Girl.

Popcorn Queen.

Swimming with her baby.

December 2008 - Daisy Bucket (a.k.a. Lazy Bucket).

February 2009 - Chelsea gets ready to party!

Fashion Show here I come!

You Go Girl!


November 2008 - Jack & the ball.


I spent this morning in my scrap room. Not at my scrap desk, in my bedroom, creating...

No, I was actually tidying, sorting, containerizing, planning, visuallising, etc, etc...

Lotsa fun but also a harsh reality check for me. I've got to get down to some serious "catch-up" work...

A fairly overwhelming thought.

Love these collages in which you have captured the innocent beauty of youth. You have got beautiful children. Hugs from Desire

Lovely photos. I know the feeling, I have loads to scrap but I am getting there slowly but surely.

Vicki said...

You have some very photogenic kids there Helen. Don't let all the photos overwhelm you as scrapping will become a chore instead of something you enjoy.

Lol we all have years of scrapping to do....its quite overwhelming at times. I have been scanning old baby photos & then get involved with looking & oohing & aahing. Still perserverance is what its all about & loads of time - who has that LOL. Need to do some serious catching up in the school holidays.

Unbelieveable!! Only a calm Cami could get a CAT into a swimming pool!!

i know what you mean. i only scrap one a fortnight, maybe once in 3 weeks and if there are a few photos in a month you quickly get behind.

Your children are beautiful! Just wanted to let you know I've just received my APRIL CK - no sign of March yet! Have you received your March issue?

I completely understand what you're saying! I have more than a year to do and it's still overwhelming! I don't know how people do it. I started out the year saying I'd make sure to stay caught up this year and worry about the past if I had time ... and I'm already behind! Ack!

Jessica said...

That's why I switched to digital ... well, not switch, but do more digi ... and I've done more than ever before ... but still behind only three months into the year!
