A Variety of Pages

Typically I scrap my weekly double pages on the weekend, and if I have extra scrapping time I will work on Matthew's adoption album. This weekend I made two pages for Matthew's album, the July page for a 2016 Calendar I'm working on, and an extra (just for fun page) for a challenge over at Scrap Orchard. If you include my weekly double pager, I scrapped a total of 6 pages this past weekend. I'd say that's pretty good.

Above is the July page for the 2016 Calendar. I'm loving Juno Design's Everyday Life kits for these calendars. And I just can't wait to print this calendar for my mom...I might even get one for myself.

To get these pages done for Matthew's Album I kept them nice and simple...which I always end up loving anyway. Plus, with these photos, especially the ones on the page at the top, I really wanted the focus to be on the photos themselves.

And this page was created for a fun challenge over at Scrap Orchard. We were supposed to scrap the top 5 of 2015 (so far). I thought it might be difficult at first, so many great memories this year, but once I started going through my pictures I knew instantly what I was going to choose.

It was a great scrapping weekend. I sort of fit it in between all the normal weekend activities, but I mostly scrapped at night. I'm hoping this weekend will produce as many pages!

So, I'm curious. When do you mostly do your scrapping? Weekends, nights, mornings, in-between?

For me, it's almost always fitting it in around weekend activities. I just can't seem to squeeze it in during the week.

You've been productive! :) I used to do a lot during my big boys' afternoon quiet time and at night after everyone else had gone to bed, but lately (with a newborn), I'm finding it difficult. It's hard to get it done in small chunks of time when I was accustomed to having a couple of hours uninterrupted. This week, I started making a to do list each morning, and I usually have 3 categories: Laundry, Computer, and Other. I try to have no more than 2 things in each category because I want to actually get them done, and more than that is just not going to happen. I always include a scrapbooking task in my computer time. It has helped me a lot to be focused on one thing (like editing photos for a specific week of Project Life). If I'm not distracted by a bunch of other stuff on my computer, then I can actually get something done in 20 minutes. :)

I am so jealous that you got 6 pages done over the weekend!! Earlier in the month I went to our annual scrapping retreat, and I got almost literally nothing done. All I did was upload photos from cameras to my computer. My little boy did NOT want to cooperate like his sister always did at our scrapping events. I must say I have gotten each of the two weekly challenges done for Iron Scrapper, so that was good.
I just love reading about your family. These pages about Matthew are so wonderful, you journal them so well, straight from your heart!
