Making Progress

Remember when I said that I wanted to have Ethan's baby book {scrapbook} done by his first birthday? It's been a little over a month since I made that goal public and I'll admit...it's a bold one. Well, while there IS still time for a miracle, I think I'll be happy if I just continue to make progress on the book. And I have made some progress...in the form of 24 pages/layouts. That sounds pretty good {and I guess it is}, but conisdering that only covers up until we come home from the hospital, I still have a long way to go. And my layouts are pretty simple. I don't use a lot of elements. I don't like clutter and that applies even to my scrapbooks. You could call me a lazy scrapbooker, I guess. I like for the pictures and journaling to be the main focus. And truthfully, some of these pages could still be tweaked further. I'm horrible about finishing a page and then finding one more thing I want to change. But, in the spirit of actually having any sort of book to look at, I've decided to be a practical perfectionist. Here's what I've done so far...you can see these pages in detail on our photo website.

I've been looking at them, Rach. You have done a great job so far! So when this is finished, will a company make the book for you and ship it to you? I must learn more about this digital scrapbooking!

You should be teaching a HOW class on how to use Photoshop Elements. I've been playing with mine, and can't figure it out! You've done a fantastic job.
