Accounting Final and Scrapbooking

I've got my Accounting final coming up on Wednesday and yet I'm up at 3:00 in the morning scrapbooking, not studying. To be fair, I read a chapter earlier, but it took me longer than normal because I was so distracted with thoughts of scrapbooking.

I finished two scrapbook pages. I actually started with the Oregon honeymoon roadtrip pages first and got a little burnt out on the heavy-on-the-pictures-low-on-the-design result that I was getting. The Grand Teton/Yellowstone pages are minimal - it almost looks like I didn't finish the pages.

Putting the finished pages in my album, I thought to myself that I sometimes don't even want to look at the pages I did because I'll start to be nitpicky and critical about them. I've started to journal by hand more out of laziness and the result is crooked lines and varying writing sizes. It irks me when I look at it . . . so I just shouldn't look at it.

While I was scrapbooking, I went back and forth between my pages and these: Ali Edwards's column for Creating KeepsakesStudio A. She's got lots of examples in each column, which is what I like to look at for inspiration.
