Nothing Here

Jill says:
Well, sadly, this is still what August's Lifescrap looks like. I think I had it to this stage on the 30th of August and then mayhem set in.
I was lying in bed this morning, feeling guilty about not having posted my August Lifescrap and so here it is, unfinished, but still posted!
And why haven't I posted you might ask? Scroll down.......
This is what my scrapping space looks like at present. So I'm also sorry to report that September's will still be a ways off as well. My table is covered with memorabilia I brought back from cleaning out my parent's belongings. They passed away 10 years ago, and it has taken me this long to bring myself to be able to do the big clean out. I did some initial stuff with clothes etc but what was left fitted into a double car garage and a huge shed. Anyway, lots to do. Will post when I can.....

Where O' Where

Melissa says:
I get the distinct feeling that my partner in crime has too many photo's to choose from last month. I was feeling quite chuffed that my entry was actually done early but now I'm itching to see Jill's too.

Only 4 months to go

Melissa says:
When Jill and I spoke today she was working on her page from my Trend Studio class on pleats, tucks and ruching. She was so excited because it was inspiring to her and the page was in an entirely different creative place than she probably envisioned. I always love it when my students come with an open mind, heaps of photo's to choose from and willingness to try something new. For me, that is exactly what scrapbooking is all about.


Melissa says:
This month was a really inspired month for me. I have constantly worked on layout after layout, challenge after challenge and found so many things around me that inspired creativity continually.
A big shout out to Jill for keeping up the pace of a photo of a day. Not sure what she concluded from the 31 day slog but I think it gives a much broader look to her massive month.
With September beginning, it makes me very aware that Lifescrap 365 for 2010 is almost on the final stretch and I have started to entertain some ideas for next year. Nothing set in stone yet but the control freak in me likes to make a head start.
