Stamp of the Month MUNNday FUNNday – Being Finished with UN-finished Layouts

Are you finished with being UN-finished?
Man, take a look at any of my (ahem) few scrapbooks and you will find pages which are not finished.
What is it with me?
Please tell me someone else does this?
 I have a choice of reactions to make:
  1. Call it quits – admit I am defeated by too many pictures, too little time
  2. I can close the books and ignore the unfinished layouts
  3. I can do what I can, enjoy what I do, and be glad that I did.
Today, I chose #3.
My larger books are chronological, for the most part. 
Occasionally, I will stick in a “back story” layout to tell why we are where we are, but
that is only occasionally. I have enough challenge as it is!
BTW, one of the reasons I choose CTMH albums is because how easily I can add page protectors!
I grabbed my
  August Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month “Framed”
mid-way through the L/O and thought, “Perfect!”

(For those who may not know, the red lines around the images means one of the
Close To My Heart Cricut Cartridges
has a corresponding shape).
Aren’t these cute stamps? Such a clean, but fancy pants stamps!

And I love how the stamps look on this layout!
Scrapping this layout today, started with a, “Oh, jeepers, I’m behind,” to “Oh, jeepers, I’m so glad I got to spend time with these moments SEVEN years ago!”

Now that my little chicks (he chicks and she chicks) are out of the nest,
I like to sum up what is going on in my kids’ lives on their annual birthday page.
So in the journaling block (see the SOM design) I will include his
“life facts”.

FUNN memories these photos brought up:
– the family “birthday” candle – I gave up on the individuals and used that green candle over & over
– that crazy sword! Braveheart fanns
Russ’ SHORT hair and his happy face

Do you feel behind in scrapbooking?
Let me help.
Let’s turn your, “Oh, no, jeepers!” into “Oh, yes, jeepers, that was FUNN!”
To see more ways I can help, you might enjoy these past posts….
Whatever you do today, make it a FUNNday MUNNday!

Great layout. And i do the same thing. Also am redoing some old layouts from the late 90s. I like todays style more than that style. Thanks for sharing with us at Heart 2 Heart.


I have a few pages that I need to finish- a lot of them are harder ones as they involve family members who have passed, but I love your suggestion to just get ion to it! Thanks so much for sharing this layout with us at H2H challenges.


I love the layout Mary! I try to finish all mine but there have been a few that just were not working out, I remember one sat on my table for over 6 months and one night (after many attempts over the 6 months) it came together literally in minutes and was better than anything I would have ever imagined it to be. Great job on pulling it out and getting it done! Thanks for playing along with Heart 2 Heart Challenges (H2H)!
