Seriously, I must be the slowest scrapbooker on the planet. These two pages took me 2 hours, and there is nothing to them! I forced myself to simplify and resisted the urge to stamp on these pages. Yes, finding the photos took a bit of time, but…still! Oh well, they are done, and I completed my challenge for the weekend. That makes me a happy camper!
The first LO is from the current Creative Scrappers sketch. I know…it wasn’t on my list, but I saw the sketch in my blog reader and was inspired. I’m really attracted to circles. The only problem I had with this LO is that my large Coluzzle circle is only 8″, but I went with it since my goal was to simplify.
Again, notice my love of circles! This time I went with sketch #5 over at 52 Sketches…52 Weeks; I’m a little behind! The beauty of being the world’s slowest scrapbooker is that I don’t put pressure on myself to keep up with a LO a week. 😉 That being said, I do want to finish my cruise album this summer, so I do need to pick up the pace. I also need to cut back on the number of pages I create–I’m already at 20 and I haven’t made a dent in my photos…uh…yeah…not a good sign. I’m fairly certain that I don’t want to look through a 50 pound scrapbook!
This LO reminds me that I really need to get a zoom lens for my camera. I also need to learn how to use the manual features of my SLR. I need more time in the day!

I’m right there with you in the slow department.
But, both layouts are great!

The layouts are great! If going slow produces layouts like these, then creep on!

I love these layouts! I sometimes have that where it takes hours for the simplest LO and no time at all to do a complex one. And I NEVER get one finished in the first time I sit down with it – always leave my titles and journaling for another time!
