First Elise Scrapbook Challenge

January 31, 2007

Okay as I mentioned yesterday I have been inspired by Elise Flannigan’s 52 Scrapbooking challenges and have decided to do one of these a week to get me to explore out of my comfort zone.  Below is the first challenge that I will do this week and anyone is welcome to join me.  If you do decide to join me if you can send me a link to your layout and i will draw a name at the end of each week so every Wednesday and RAK them.

Start with a Number – Need a fun way to start a page?  It’s easy – start with a number.  Make a top-10 list or, look for number-themed accents to build your page around.  Numbers are everywhere!  Build a page around a telephone number, a shoe size, an age, a year, a “good luck” number or more. 

What else has been happneing?  I have been working on a little Business Venture that I am going to take babysteps with but have just completed my first quote.  What you may ask is this little business venture.  I am going to start a business from home now that David is older doing scrapbooks, pages, mini albums, invites for party favours for others.  I am going to take this slowly and don’t expect it to be huge but it will be something that i can love doing and can make a little bit of money doing it.

Tommorow I am off with Richard and David down to Hamilton to the funeral of a dear friend’s mother who passed away on Sunday after a long illness.   I really feel for her as in the past 2 years she will have lost both of her elderly parents.

Well must be off and start looking at getting dinner ready.  Wow, i must say though i am impressed with myself 4 days in a row blogging.  But i have decided i am not going to beat myself up if i don’t blog everday.

    Good luck – and yep, you don’t need to blog every day. Relax. It’s not fun if it’s a chore! Blogging should be way down there on your list not right at the top!
