PLAN to scrapbook, relax & enjoy

Let's face it, when our days are numbered, we would never say "I wish I had did more loads of laundry", of course, i guess if we dodged laundry all together, then our days as a wife might be numbered LOL

Seriously, the point is-do you ENJOY scrapbooking? Do you enjoy spending time with your friends? Do you enjoy reliving these awesome memories while you scrapbook them? If you answered yes to any of these-please do as I say and not as I do LOL.

If it works with your lifestyle, PLAN to scrapbook. Most of us work during the day, so if we don't PLAN to scrapbook, it probably won't happen. If we can PLAN that once or twice a week, its actually easier. Can you set aside one night to hideout after dinner or runaway with some friends & scrapbook & visit. Planning might mean let the laundry go (for one night, maybe 2), prepare an easy dinner, and take time to get creative or just get some pictures on a page. This is always so helpful-OOPS in 15 min intervals-pull certain pictures, then next 15 mins spared, pull products to match & make a list of what else needed from MM, which is scrapbook heaven by the way (just check-in on facebook). So sometimes that's not always possible to pull a little here & there, but hey if you do pull some supplies together ahead of time – go YOU! Totally smart. If you plan to scrapbook, just like you plan to go to the grocery store or to the gym, you will be better prepared to get something done, making you more efficient with your time.

Here's an easy recipe for the night you plan to scrapbook OR if you have a great, easy recipe to throw in the crock pot, share it with us. Then it will be ready to go at dinnertime and you will have more time to scrapbook in the evening.

Oh, and here's dessert first (awesome layout to scraplift)
