Confession!! And a bundle of cards

I CHEATED!!! That's my confession. Plain and simple. I looked at the stack of 200 photos sitting on my desk and chickened out. I thought it would take me all year to get them scrapped, so I went and bought an album to stick them in.

Atleast it had the little places to journal, so I went through and journaled all the pics last night.

Shameful isn't it? :confused: But I still plan on scrapbooking pictures as I go along. I've picked out my top 20 pics and will do layouts with them.

And I made so many cards last night too. I was up until almost 2am. We have so many birthdays in July and thank you notes to be written. Here are a few of them:
My favorite:

That saying is a rub-on that I cut up and lined up so it would fit in the journaling stamp. I liked it so much I tried hand-writing that saying on another card:

Not so good. :rolleyes:
Then a card for DH's nephew. I'm not good with guy's cards:

And one for my FIL's birthday: I totally lifted this idea from someone. I just can't remember where. LOL!

And some thank yous:


I used the Alphalicious cart on most of the cards. TFL! Now onto some layouts.....

those cards are great! And I wouldn't say that's cheating to not use all 200 of your vacation photos. lol. I would scrap my top 20 or so as well and put the rest in a photo album too. Don't be so hard on yourself. lol

Great cards, and I wouldn't call it cheating either, I have albums with lots of photos that I don't plan to ever scrap.

ITA with the other ladies... not cheating. If you scrapped every picture you took, they wouldn't be as special, right? I have so many pictures of Scout that I would love to scrap, but I try to pick the best one (or three) from events and scrap those.

I like the cards, too. That's something I'd like to try someday.

I LOVE the cards! I am in card making mode, so I am scraplifting some of those! Men are so stinking hard it isn't even funny. It drives me insane thinking of men cards. :rolleyes: Your's look great! Love the Alpha cart....need to look into that one!

ok seriously Charys. I want to hire you to make my baby shower thank-you's. Lol

And I've cheated too. I bought an album (with journaling spots right next to it like yours) and all of our bridal shower, wedding & honeymoon pictures are in there. I did scrap my favs but I didn't want to be scrapping those until I die! Biggrin

Aw, you're too sweet. Hey, I would seriously LOVE to scrap your thank yous!! As a little present from me. I'm so happy about your baby, that it would be an honor for me.

The cards are great, and I don't think that is cheating at all. Vacations would be way to many pages if we scrapped all the pictures, but you don't want to forget the pictures either. When we came back from Italy, I had a digital album made that was one of the ones you just use their layouts for. It was so much better than stressing over a fully album.

Those are great, and I don't blame you for buying an album - I don't scrap every photo, if I did I'd be scrapping 24 hours a day and STILL wouldn't get them done! Love the cards - you're talented!
