With Just 15 mintues...

...give or take a few, you can make a complete page and find that you will like it. Lately, I have been trying out some 15 minute layout ideas from If you are like me, you have more photos than you know what to do with. There is, after all, only so much time in the day and never enough of it. I do my best not to focus on whether or not I am behind or caught up with scrapbooking. It's supposed to be about enjoying the process and then enjoying those moments when you can share your stories with others. That being said, I do love the process...and sometimes I go overboard with it. How many times have you sat down to work and then enjoyed embellishing and moving everything around on the page to make it "just so"? I know that I can take hours on a page before I am happy with it!
Now, before I show you my page, I will admit that it took me a little over 15 minutes to do. I did not, take longer than 30 minutes though. This little experiment has allowed me to let go of my need to keep adding things to the page. Simple is the name of the game: a simple example, a simple  set of supplies, a simple page....and voila!

I was so glad to finish this page. It is page two of "Can I Have a Cup of Co?" which I made months ago. So now I challenge you to try something new and share it at Scrap Our Stash!


  1. Wow! This is such a great layout! I look forward to creating with you at Sketches4all!
