Hop To It Challenge #4
I've been reading a lot recently about scrapbooking and the idea of perfection. As a perfectionist myself it's easy to get caught up in what I think my layout or albums should look like. Which makes it easy to tell myself to wait for the perfect photos to go with the papers I keep waiting to use. To wait for the perfect time to sit down so I can concentrate on getting great pages completed. To tell myself that spending 30 minutes on a page isn't long enough to achieve fantastic results, even when after 30 minutes the page is done and I like what I see. Being a perfectionist is a great excuse to NOT scrapbook. In reality, who, other than my family (well and you all when I post layouts, LOL) are going to see them? My family loves what they see in their albums and actually, most of the time, so do I (can't love the all). And really . . . isn't that the way it should be? So today's challenge is to get some of those favorite papers, or kit ('cause you know there's more than just one set). You know the ones, you keep waiting for the perfect photos. They're the ones that you love so much you bypass them everytime you search your stash with photos that would work equally well, but they're not the "perfect" pictures. Get those because today there will be no more waiting! You'll get to love those papers doing what they were intended - creating a page! Need a little bump in the creativity? You get a sketch too. :) From Nuts About Sketches
