Playing Catch-Up

Playing Catch-Up

This week has been weirdly busy, so while I have been able to continue to create pages every day, I haven’t been able to share them on the blog with you.

Let’s do a quick run-down for you:

I tried to make a rhyming poem for this page, but ditched it when nothing but doggerel made it onto the practice paper.

This page was all about playing with fun fonts. And filling in the blanks on the prompt, “Don’t Let the ____, _____,” based on the “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus” books. (If you haven’t read any Mo Willems books, you need to. He’s the Dr. Seuss of our generation.


Trying to remember books that were read to me as a child for the next prompt, and I can’t remember any of them. However, I vividly remember reading to my little sister “The Monster at the End of This Book,” hence the monster themed paper.

This page came together in half an hour, when I realized at 10:45 that I hadn’t made a page for the day. I used a few photos that I had put aside to document my new iPhone, and lots of scraps from my scrap bin. One of the big benefits of LOAD is how fast I scrap now. There’s a lot less indecision when time is a limiting factor.

And then page creation got a bit hairy. We headed off to my sister’s, which meant I either needed to bring scrapbooking supplies, or find an alternative way to scrapbook if I was going to continue making a page a day. Solution? The Project Life app for iPhone.


Both Monday and Tuesday, I used photos I or my sister had taken to document the events of the day, a few cards from various kits, and the pages were done. And shared on Flickr! I am loving how versatile my iphone is! But that’s a post for anther day.

That brings us up to today. We got home about an hour and a half ago. Next on the to-do list? Listening to today’s prompt.

There are so many ways to scrapbook every day. Pick one and start telling YOUR story. It is definitely worth it.

  1. Nice work, as usual! No iPhone here, so Photogrid is what I use for travel. I keep journaling to a minimum, print 8×8 later and journal & embellish that on a 12×12 page.

What do you think?
