I took a bit of a break from scrapbooking last year and tried my hand at doing other crafty things. What I realized was I really need to scrapbook! It gives me a creative outlet that nothing else seems to satisfy. And to be honest it's the one craft I do that I'm usually happy with the finished product. It the last month or so I have finished more layouts than I did in all of last year. I'm going to a crop in a couple of weeks and I hope to get at least 5 or 6 more layouts done then. Here are what I have done so far.
