And we're back!

Hi Nesters!  I'm so glad to be back sharing with you.  :)

My original game plan was to take a break for a few weeks to deal with the start of school (we homeschool + I've been teaching part-time at a local college) and a Disney vacation.  Then life just sorta got crazy so it turned into a multi-month break.  


Recently, however, I made the conscious decision to start scrapbooking again.  I don't know if you're anything like me, but when life gets busy, my hobby ends up being the first thing crossed off my to-do list.  And for a brief time, this may be necessary, and a good thing.  But I've found that when I go weeks (or more realistically, months) without taking any time for myself, I really start getting worn down.  And that's no good for anyone.  So after talking with my husband, I decided to start crafting again.  I still have a long to-do list, but I'm finding that I'm more relaxed when I take small breaks to play and get my mind off the craziness of life.


And that brings us to today.  :)


I pulled out a small pile of pictures and my February "It Takes Two" Scraptastic kit.  Using just a few extra items, I've scrapped 7 layouts in the past couple weeks.  


(There's also an "It Takes Two" Add-On kit which includes the chipboard shapes and heart enamel stickers that I used.)  


Here's a little video I made that walks through the kit and the first layout I created with it:




Here's a photo of that layout:



I'll be back shortly with more of the pages I finished, and also one more video.  Until then, here's the  stack of pages I created with the kit:


It makes me happy.  :)


P.S.  I'm not affiliated with Scraptastic, except that I purchase monthly kits.  I am receiving no compensation for writing this post.
