my girlies

I have been sooooo bad at taking pictures of my kids lately. I got out of the habit of snapping pictures when my camera wasn't working and then away being fixed, so I am trying to get back into it. Here a few pictures of the girls that I took in our front yard on Saturday morning. And I have to cute! My girls make me so happy. I could eat 'em both!! (and notice their "skinny jeans"....haha!! I love them!!)

I just can't believe how old they are getting. Payton is totally a little girl. So grown up and sassy and determined. And Gabby is slowly but surely transitioning from a baby to a toddler. Starting to have meltdowns. Oy. Gray and I always laugh after we put them both to bed...we love them so much, but oh, it is SO NICE to have a little peace and quiet once they are in bed! Haha!!

I was just folding laundry and once again my mind went to hit me as to why alot of people DON'T scrapbook...they feel like there's no way they could ever scrapbook ALL of their pictures, and therefore, they don't scrapbook at all.

Guess what????


I think that is another misconception that people have about scrapbooking....that you have to scrapbook every single one of your photos. But we all know that that is just not possible and THAT'S OKAY. I personally just scrapbook the photos that I love and that are speaking to me at that moment. No pressure. No worries. Just FUN. The only expectations that have to be met when it comes to scrapbooking are THE ONES THAT YOU SET FOR YOURSELF. Don't worry what other people are doing. JUST DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO. If you tell yourself that you have to scrapbook all 200 photos from your family vacation this summer, then obviously you'll get discouraged and quit before you even begin. Just pick the 2 or 3 that are your faves and have fun!!

Sound good?

For some reason I am just wanting to "free" people when it comes to putting their pictures in scrapbooks lately...don't know why, but it's been on my mind alot.

Okay, I had a root canal done on my tooth today, so time to take some tylenol and get to work...I'm working on some CUTE stuff for the Goodie Box next month. I can't wait to share!!

Hi Talia - such cute photos of your beautiful little girls. Funny to think you are coming into Autumn and we are on our way into Summer!!!

Am loving all your scrapbooking hints - what do you do with all the photos that you don't scrap? Do you print them all? And also do you have a system for your scrapbooking pages, e.g. separate albums for each of the girls, family albums, holidays etc?

TFS - Regards Ange NZ

Those are the sweetest pictures, so adorable. I love Gabby's pigtails, what a cutie.

I totally agree with everything you said about scrapbooking. Sometimes I forget how fun it is because I am too caught up in making every page perfect. I need to remember why I love scrapbooking and focus on having fun. Thanks for the great thoughts!
