LOAD213: In the Home Stretch

There are just a few days left of Layout a Day. I have managed to keep up, though I must confess to being quite exhausted. It hasn't been an easy feat to manage LOAD, creative team assignments and my family life. I do feel good about making it through the next few days. After all, I have made it this far.

Yesterday, I decided to keep things simple. I chose a sketch from a scrapbook pal at her blog Scrapping Wonders. Beth is running a challenge and a series of blog posts aimed at helping you document your mobile photos. Her sketch was just what I needed!

The photos are less than stellar. The layout is UBER simple compared to what I usually make. So what!?!! I documented something my husband has been saying about my son a lot lately. This is another reminder that sometimes simple really can be a good thing.

So yes, I have been very tired. I do plan to rest a bit after LOAD is over. I won't quit scrapping completely though, just maybe not a layout every day. That's the quirky thing about LOAD. You might get a little tired, but you sure feel like it's a shame to stop creating once it's done.
