I haven't been doing much scrapbooking since I sold the store.  Mostly I've been catching up on stuff at home.  And that dreaded photo project is still hanging around...although I got through 3 more boxes today!  Woohoo!  (Only 1 box of negatives, 1 box of completely random photos...most of which are pre-marriage...some miscellaneous scrapbook pages that are waiting on protectors...and that last dreaded box filled with who knows what.)  So when Anna asked me to do a make-n-take for the JLB Project Scrapbook Fundraiser, I hesitated.  Actually, I hesitated for weeks.    Did I want to be involved with store stuff?  Ultimately, yes I did want to help.  I may even volunteer with Anna's organization.  So here's the page I did for the fundraiser:
I'm all about simple pages nowadays.  I would like to make masterpieces that take hours per page, but the reality is, it's not going to happen.  The photos on the page were taken with my Fuji Instax Mini camera, which I adore.  It's funny...I had put it away & hadn't used it in a while...but I do love it!  The film runs around $1 per shot, but it's so worth it!  (The tulips are leftover from the fundraiser...aren't they lovely?)  It was fun to teach the page!  It was even better to feel no need to rush back to the store!  It was great to just be a participant!
