Wink Happy Saturday

....I can't believe it's almost the END of April and I have only a few pages done for the year Being gone all of January and most of February, then my MOJO was gone February through March and ... here we are. I've never had so many 1/2 started pages on my desk at one time either ... ugh!

We're making BIG Changes at work and I think my subconscious mind is stressed. It seems when my life is in "upheaval" I can't scrap ...I've had this a couple other times before and that's happened so it seems I just have to wait it out. It's frustrating, but I feel like I'm coming out of it ... maybe?

On a positive note, with all the traveling I've done this year again, I have tons of fun photos to scrap!

Scrap On!

Default VSBN17APR#3 - Star Event with Friends

Star event with friends by Ozpom - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Happy Tuesday everyone (or Monday, depending on where you live )

I finally managed to complete another LO. Sorry I had to cover the faces but I feel I only have permission to upload photos of my family. It's a shame as you can't always get the effect of the event which our son and his girlfriend (at that time) and friends attended. They were obviously having fun as there's lots of smiles in the photos.

YTD: 20 (yay)
April Goal: 4 completed, 3 to go....so on that point I'm heading up to my craft room to think about what I can do for challenge #4.

Happy day everyone

Hi Sharon, sorry I haven't replied earlier. Thank you for sending through this post and I may have a go and see if I can combine something with one of the remaining challenges I have to do. Your LO is beautiful and I now wish I hadn't put so much colour on. Yours is how mine should have come out. I did have a play with the inks and realised I only need to dab a small amount on and squirt water as it goes so far....my lesson for this past weekend learnt

As you will have noticed things didn't go to plan this weekend on completing LO's. I was all set to go and we had friends and home commitments that cropped up and before I knew it, the weekend had gone. Fortunately I managed to finish one today and will start another now. My goal is to do at least 2 more this week, fingers crossed

Please keep sharing challenges you think I may be interested in as I don't always see them, time dependent.

Happy day. Hugs from Australia jx

Been working on my nephew's birthday party. Made my goal with this set and actually past it by one. Used my Cricut a lot with these pages and it made all the difference with the layouts. I'm even the central focus on one of these, but not in a way you'd ever want to be!

Unless I become a mad scrapper for the next three days I will not be making my goal this month! I had to check to see how may days in April but if I can work like mad....... I doubt I can still make it as the mojo just is not there right now.

Hi Sharon

Me neither....in my last post I said I was heading to my craft room and only managed to get photos out. I'm having difficulty coming up with something. I'm hoping I can start tomorrow but I think end April may be here before I complete my last 2 LOs.

Maybe let's give one another a kickstart.......or perhaps some ladies in this group can help us.

I've got photos of our son at 3 different music festivals with various friends over the years. Lots of different colours but I just don't know where to start. I am about to print some of the festivals logos off and would like to add them as part of the title....I would also like to add some music notes from my stamp stash.....that's as far as my mojo will take me.

Now your turn.......LOL.....what's the photos you would like to scrap? It's worth a shot and one or more ideas might just get our mojos flowing.

If all else fails, I'm getting the scrapbooking magazines out and just copying something

Good luck and have a great weekend. Hugs from Australia jx

Sorry, Sharon, that you are feeling no motivation, but remember that you are a high volume scrapper and your mojo will return.
Let's not kick ourselves too hard, take a deep breath, and pull something out. See where it takes you.
Jayne you are on the right track, I believe. Looking at magazines or other places like blog challenges on the Internet can help spark an idea you will want to pursue. This is why I love challenges, here on SCS or where ever I can find them.
Since I'm hosting the VSBN for May I am done with April because I'm working on samples for my challenges. So, hopefully, I'll make up for this month in May. It's probably cheating, since some of the pages I'll post in May will be completed in April. No "scrapbook police" here though, right!

I can't wait to see May's challenges, Joyce Ann! I am just realizing May is almost here and I have to think of a Scraplift idea! Where does the time go?

Sharon...
Here's a scraplift idea for you using Jayne's recent page and the inspiration of collage, clocks, circles, and time. I favorited it so at some point I'll be borrowing this idea anyway.

This is why I love this scrapping group....everyone is so encouraging and we all lose our mojo from time to time. Thank you ladies. Hang in there Sharon and it doesn't matter if we don't achieve our April goal. May will soon be here and we can just start again.

I'm now heading into my craft room and will start with some magazines or Becky Higgins book and if that fails, I'll go back to the sketches page. Good luck.
Hugs from Australia everyone...love this group jx

Speaking of Australia, Jayne, I just went to an event where Bindi gave a talk! She is quite the Wildlife Warrior! I am looking forward to scrapping pages from today's photos I took. Good or bad, I'm afraid the lighting wasn't all that great and I didn't want to use flash, that's just rude.

Yay Sharon you found your mojo and completed another lovely LO.

I spent about 4 hours yesterday starting with gesso, paste, stencilling, spraying, regessoing, spraying, tearing and distressing. My room was mega chaos .

Tonight I've spent another 3 hours starting it all again and all I have now is a 2 page LO with nothing stuck down and the mixed media pages thrown aside . I shall have to try and complete it first thing tomorrow and hopefully post....it will be May here but still April in the US so I figure that's close enough to completing my goal

Wish me luck......it may still be revamped again, restarted or I may just give up...LOL and just focus on May.

Happy evening...time for bed down under.

Sets On The Beach by Ozpom - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Yay, I did 2 more pages....just. Started Saturday and finally finished today. A long winded process but I'm glad I did it. It's May here but I figured you ladies won't mind I post them against April.

YTD: 23
April Goal of 7 achieved...whoop, whoop!!

Thank you Cheryl for the April challenges...so enjoyed doing them, and looking forward to Joyce Ann's May ones. I just have to work out what I can achieve as we head off end of May on holiday for 10 days.

Happy week everyone.

Hi Joyce Ann, yes Bindi and her brother certainly take after their parents and do so much good. Look forward to seeing your LO's from the event. Happy day and thanks again for the May challenges. About to head to my craft room and make a start...that's the plan.
Happy day
