Scrapbook pages

Yay! Blogger is working again. I tried to start this post earlier today, but I kept getting an error message from Blogger. As if it's not hard enough to remind myself to update the blog, I had to deal with technical issues. And I've definitely had plenty of technical difficulties to deal with lately. My printer is still broken and my camera battery situation is officially out of control. I fear that both may need replacing soon. :(

Until then, I've been doing the best with what I've got. I signed up for a Shutterfly account and ordered some prints to be shipped to the house so I can jump on the scrapbooking bandwagon again. I find it really difficult to juggle all of my interests at the same time, but I'm beginning to get comfortable enough in my running routine and the responsibilities of being a single puppy parent to find more time to play with paper. In fact, I even photographed some yesterday!

My dad took this picture when he was visiting in November. My newest Slice card had the perfect little "beach" word to cut out for the title, and that's about all it took to put this together.

I rescued this picture from a frame that I didn't want anymore and was donating to Goodwill. Whenever I'm kind of stuck with what to do for a page, I start cutting little squares and making a grid. It's just what works for me. I cut the "love" part of the title with another Slice card. :)

There's not much else going on to report. I'm working on finishing a few more loads of laundry before I take my bike for a ride along the beach this evening. I made sure that Adam showed me how to load up my bike in the car before he left, so I want to make sure that I make use of that skill. :) Then, I'm going to come home and make chicken parm and breaded zucchini sticks for dinner. Yum! Right now, my puggles look like they need a little attention. I think a short play session is in order.
