When I Scrap

I was thinking of doing the "Where I Scrap" post today, but the idea of taking pictures of my messy desk is a little scary. So today, we'll go for the when I scrap post.

Being a university student makes it difficult to balance study time and fun time, but when I also throw work and volleyball into the mix it makes it even more difficult. Usually whenever I can grab anything more than 5 minutes I'll sit down and continue working on a page I've got on the go. Usually this means I have 2 or 3 pages on the go at once, because sometimes I get tired of always thinking of the same page for days at a time. This also means that sometimes a page won't get finished for a REALLY long time (meaning a month or two).

Whenever I have a moment free from homework, or labs or all of my other activities, I like to plan pages or just come up with ideas. I have a notepad that's filled with page sketches and inspiring pictures.

I don't always use the sketches I make, but just taking time to think of new ideas usually ends up with a good starting point for a page.

  2. I love your notebook. I was thinking we should do a "planning book" theme for our next YS blog hop.

  3. can we see other pages from your notepad ??? I'm so curious !!
    I can't believe you managed to do more than one LO at a time, that's my problem, if I get stuck with a LO I can't do anything else
    unless I'm just waiting for some journaling or a title (usually it's when I am on my Mexican album and I ask my aunt some details !) In that case I can move on !
