Quasi Project Life and another layout

Well, after my epiphany over the weekend I was able to let some of my OCD tendencies go and place layouts in my girls scrapbooks out of order.  This is a HUGE deal for me.  The other thing I was able to do was include some Project Life type layouts.  They were my first try at something like this and not nearly as in depth as some of them out there but again, it was about getting the memories down for me.  I was able to get several events in one page protector that would have equaled multiple layouts for me.  Does that make sense?  This was perfect for Christmas/Winter and Fourth of July, events where I take a ton of photos.

Here is one of my examples:

I found these page protectors at Hobby Lobby.  I think they were $9.99 and I picked them up when they were 50% off.  I can't tell you how freeing it was for me to add these in to my girls albums!  Like showing you my underwear!

I have a regular layout to share today too:

This little goal I've set for myself has been going so good.  It has felt great using up all of my scraps and last night I finished up Landry!  It feels great!  Now to get started on Abie and then last years vacation album.  I'll be buying new product in no time!

Thanks for coming by today and I'll see you tomorrow!

  7. Becky, Good for you girl. Whoot Whoot. OCD is a real devil, I know. But baby steps makes it possible to deal with the little things can drive us bonkers.
    By looking at my house at the moment you would never know I have OCD. LOL Oh but I do. My very bleached, cracked dried hands are proof.
    Wonderful that you got so much done already. I love the layouts as well.

  8. So happy for you that you are getting projects done.
    I know how hard it is to let your perfectionism go...I am still working on mine ;)
