I remembered I'm a scrapbooker

Scrapbooking has been challenging for me since before the move.
Part of it is this crazy knitting obsession, part of it was moving away from my scrapbooking friends. It was so great when I'd get in a rut with a layout to just say, "Hey - what should I do here?"
Obviously, I can still do it via digital photography, webcams and email but it's just not the same. I miss my friends and scrapbooking seems to make it worse. :o\

It was nice yesterday to sit with piles of scrapping stuff around me and play with some of my favorite papers and work with one of my favorite subjects - baby Paige.
The layout was inspired by the incredible Valerie Salmon . Her sketches were just the boost I needed to remember why I love this craft.

Besides, it gave me a break from the devil sweater. (that I did end up ripping out. I'm on sleeve two and it is looking mighty fine!)

Perfectionism sucks! Especially given I can also be incredibly lazy!
Onward. . .
