Hello there friends! It’s been a LONG time since I’ve graced you with my presence, so I thought I’d jump on and show you what I’ve been up too. I’ve been scrapbooking like crazy so I can keep up with my goal of getting done with 2008 this year.
SO, uuuummm, I changed up my birthday challenge a bit and I don’t think I even came on here to blog about it!! My goal for the past 2 months has been to make 31 layouts by my 31st birthday, which is on April 29th!! That’s 5 days away!! Dont stress though, I’m almost there and only have FIVE more layouts to complete!!
I got kind of behind during Kids Clothing Week, but I’m making up for it pretty well so far!! I did THREE layouts yesterday and one the day before. I’m working on my fifth as you read this and possibly even my sixth!! Woohoo!!
Anyway, I have started recording my scrapbooking process and getting into using YouTube more. I myself have started watching process videos and I LOVE it!! It helps me feel excited to scrapbook and gets the creative wheels running. There are so many amazing scrapbookers on YouTube, I wish I could watch them all, but alas life needs to consist of more than just scrapbooking, dang it!!
I have 2 layouts to show you today, one of them I did record myself making, but it was a total disaster! So, I’m not going to put it on my YouTube channel, unless you REALLY beg me to put it up, then I might, but if no one wants to see it I’m not going to bother with it. I did a lot of talking in it and the recording lasted about 2 hours!! When I was done with it I couldn’t believe it had taken me that long, but I did have to stop recording off and on because it was on a Sunday afternoon and I needed to be a mother to my kids every now and then.
Here’s that layout:
I got the idea for it from pinterest. You can find my scrapbooking board HERE and the actual pin that inspired me HERE.
The next layout does have a video and it is my very FIRST process video on YouTube! I thought it would be cute to call each year a season and each video an episode so this layout video is called ‘Scrapbook Process Video Season 1 (2014) Episode 1’. What do you think, does it sound stupid?!! Be completely honest with me. If you hate it I’ll scrap the idea!
Here’s that layout:
I LOVED how this layout turned out!! It’s the first one I made in under an hour and I actually did layers and embellishments! That’s amazing to me!! Before I started making process videos I would literally spend 2+ hours working on my layouts! I really think doing these process videos is going to make me a better and faster scrapbooker!!
If you want to subscribe to my channel you can find me on YouTube as Crafty Meggy. If you want to watch this process video you can view it HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I’m so sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted. Well, I guess it’s only been a week, but still, it’s felt like forever! I hope you have a great Friday!!

Hey, sweet chunks. Along with the 12X12 page protectors, I have like 10 scrapbooking layouts, just ready for pictures. I was in a scrapbooking group in San Diego and we would make two pages every month. You can have ’em if you want. They’re really cute.
