    Default I've found my mojo again!

    Yay!!

    I've been putting off completing DD's second year photo book for ages - I started it, but stopped when money got a bit tight. Not that it costs anything to create it digitally, but it costs to print - and we simply didn't have the money to print

    BUT - I have received an email for half price photo books from Snapfish, so I'm working my tushie off to finish it!

    Anyone else motivated for digi scrapping? maybe we can motivate each other!

    Yay! i saw your first book awhile back and it was awesome. I am collecting photos to make some calendars for christmas, but not really scrapbooking as such. I should get into digital scrapbooking though.

    I got that email too! I would love to do it but am struggling to find the time between work, a toddler, a baby, DH, housework, etc etc.

    But if I can find a spare minute, I'll give it a go.

    work has definitely made it more difficult this time around. this time last year i managed to finish DD's first year, our wedding album and two other albums - EASILY - but i was only doing two days a week back then - now i'm almost full time and the toddler is much more demanding - so it's HARD!

    it doesn't help that i get a picture in my head of how i want a page to look, and will spend hours looking for just the right elements to achieve it lol

    I have been working on a few albums - an engagement album, DDs baby album, and a basic family kind of album - on the big w site because a mum from school mentioned that they send out emails for cheap books leading up to Christmas.

    Hoping to get them all printed off at half price sometime - wish I could transfer them over somehow to get them now instead! I'm sick of waiting lol

    Oh good! Lol thanks for letting me know

    Good luck finishing your album off!

    I've been really excited about making mine but sometimes find myself being far to critical of my work and spending hours changing it all around lol

    Wow! Did you do that from other sites? The one I did was nowhere near so good. I just used the layouts from Snapfish.
