It's been a while since I have blogged. As much as I love reading others blogs I don't seem to be very good at writing on my own. Life has been interesting to say the very least lately. I'm continuing to work in the Hearing Aid dept at work which I enjoy. I have a wonderful new job at church. I am working with the Young Women. They are a great group of girls and I love being with them. I think they help to keep me young. =) Of course I am still playing with paper. It's a bit more difficult now a days as I don't always have that many pictures. So the "Project Life" style of scrapbooking has really appealed to me. I wasn't sure in the beginning if I would like it but the more I do it the more I am enjoying it. In the last few months I have managed to fill up almost a whole 12x12 album full of pocket pages. I have been using mostly Teresa Collins stuff with a smattering of Heidi Swapp and Echo Park thrown in the mix. I also have found some fun digital freebies online that have well worked too. Teresa Collins was here last month and I took her pocket page class. I love that lady. She is so sweet and down to earth. She really understands that scrapbooking is so much more than putting pictures on paper. I have had fun the last couple of weeks filling up pages from her class. I can almost feel like I could say that  I am "caught up" but honestly I really don't think that is possible since I am always taking more pictures. The cool thing about the pocket pages is that I am scrapping pictures that might otherwise have never been scrapped had it not been for the pocket page method. So a big thank you to Teresa Collins for getting me started on this way of scrapbooking. It's definitely helping me get more pictures off of my computer and into my scrapbooks. I don't think I will ever give up traditional scrapbooking but this just gives me another creative outlet. So here are a couple of pocket pages I have done from Teresa's class and then a layout I did with a picture from Jason's Birthday. I am going to try and blog more stay tuned and find out. haha.
