The giveaway closes on Sunday the 24th of May at 10pm BST, and is open internationally
Jennifer gave us the task to do a projects based on the theme "Focus".
Its a hard task for me at the moment, I'm finding being 26 weeks pregnant (almost 6 months) my focus is a tad all over the place. One moment its on cleaning, then I get distracted & I'm thinking how I need to list all the things the baby needs Vs all the things we have, then I get distracted by kids, food (normally food), & anything else going on, or that I need to do.
The craft project I want to Focus on though is getting my photos from when Zack is born (1999) scrapped, upto the present date - not as hard as it seems as theres only about 5 years that are not complete. So I'm starting with Focusing on my 1999 album.
I start with getting out my 1999 photos, most are in flip albums but some I've had reprinted. Then I check my 1999 scrap album to see what I've already done pages for. This gets entered into my spreadsheet...
The red is those pages I've done, the pale blue I havent done, the white I need to print photos off for.
I start off with the front page. All my albums have a front page of the year made up of the photos from that year using a program called Andrea Mosaic (You can download it HERE). I print it & create the front page
So next I go hunting for challenges. Normally I look for challenges & then match any of my photos that I think go with them. This time I have my 1999 photos. I decide on 2, the weekly challenge on UKScrappers, and Simple Recipes, also from UKScrappers.http://www.ukscrappers.co.uk/
As I finish each one I update the Spreadsheet.
I'm going to try & continue focusing on my 1999 album through out the Focus your craft & Soul event.
So from here you are now off to my friend Jo's at Curly Scrapbooker. Enjoy the hop & please keep coming back to see what else I come up with during the event as I'm bound to be joining in this week.
