35 minute challenge!

Do you ever find yourself slipping into the 'take-forever', 'gotta be perfect', 'up a bit', 'down a bit' scrapbooking type of mode??
Hmmmm, well I do :o/ & some-days it just takes forever!!

So every now & then I challenge myself to try some 'quick', 'grab whatever is handy' kinda pages. I did these a little while back when I had a gap & needed to just scrap for scrapping' sake. It was such fun setting the kitchen timer & then saying 'on-your-marks-GO!' & seeing what happened.
So even though the page styles are a lot simpler than I normally scrap, & the product is older I am SO happy with the results.

I challenge you to try this too sometime.

  2. These are such gorgeous pages Kim. I don't think you could make a bad page if you tried!! Wanted to tell you have I LOVE your spread in CK, it is fabulous, that is my favourite mag. It is wonderful that a fellow SA'n scrapper is doing so well! It is a dream of mine to be published in day maybe :)

  3. I love doing pages like this, too!

  4. Wow this is what you get when you grab what you have and just scrap?! Amazing! These are some of the nicest pages of yours that I've ever seen. I think the pages you do "just for scrapping's sake" are nicer than the ones you do for publication. Hope you don't mind me saying. But these are so authentic and real and just lovely.

  5. This is *the* kick up the butt that I need to get started again. Thanks for sharing. xx

  6. I am totally "that" kind of scrapper..."'take-forever', 'gotta be perfect', 'up a bit', 'down a bit' scrapbooking type." Love your idea! Thanks for sharing. I should try it sometime...if I can just get the perfectionist in me to agree to it! LOVE your layouts Kim! Gorgeousness as always! :) TFS!

  7. I don't think I could ever get a page finished that quickly! Great layouts and congrats for using up some older product too

  8. Love each and every one of your LO's Kim! Sure doesn't look like your didn't spend hours on each of them - they're just perfect! :)
