Another one to cross off the list.

I started this week with a long list of scrapbooking challenges to complete. This is not a must do list but rather a great list of suggestions. So that when I get time to scrap I have already got a place to start - some of the options are already thought out for me.

I'd been flicking through my pile of already printed photos for the last week thinking 'scrap a mood' (NZ Dares challenge) nothing had really jumped out at me until I looked again at a photo of Alexander with me in the background. So I had the photo - had the mood - and then Megan put up the Friday night challenge - so I had the ingredients. And then it was just a matter of putting it all together.


I love it when it all comes together so easily. And there is still plenty of 'suggestions' on my list in case I should get more scrapping time this weekend.

Love the idea of a 'suggestion' list... would be really useful when I'm in a creative slump :)

Great idea to write a list, I must try it. After Senz I have heaps of ideas and also a pile of projects on the go it can get really daunting on where to start when you get time to create. Love that picture, the blue door behind you really sets the scene for the picture. :)

I love this layout!! Your boy is SOO stinkin' cute!!

Being a "list lover", I think the scrapbooking list is a winning idea! I must give it a go myself.

at the moment my scrapping revolves around challenges, mainly because I have a timeframe and guidelines and it gets me out of my comfort zone. Love your layout and what a great idea to write a letter on the back of it. Even better it covered two challenges.
