Fell off the LOAD wagon for a couple of weeks...but I'm back! Worked on Disney layouts at a crop this weekend and got nearly 13 pages almost done....they need a few finishing touches (you know how that goes)! Stay tuned for tomorrow's layout....will it be Disney?

And here is Day 2. I spent many hours spinning my wheels tonight - looking for things! I found the pirate pictures that I wanted to scrap on Sunday but have lost the Joy of LOVE daily prompts book and all my notes with sketches and ideas! I will keep looking...stay tuned for Day 3 later tonight.

This is the left half of the page completed on Day 26. Not sure if I really like the paper lion...I was hoping I'd love it....maybe in the morning.
I love LOAD and I'm not "lion"!!!
Thanks everyone for taking the journey with me....I have enjoyed it!

As I said in the flickr gallery....I am disappointed in the scan because the flower here is Doodlebug bubblegum bright pink!

This will be worth it, I know it will...it has to be!!
So here is what I was able to throw together in a flash tonight. Thank you to Lain for the prompt today, without it I'd be in a puddle on the floor crying because I would have no idea what to do surrounded by a disassembled house and my scrapbook stuff even more scattered and unorganized than it was before.
Callgon anyone? Then I'd have to clean the tub again....I'll settle for a glass of wine....again!

Went shopping for home decor, baskets, groceries, paint and lights. Updating the house....so time consuming and such a mess! T. said he just wants the house to be back to "normal".

My scrapping friends are at a crop today...due to so many things in our busy lives I could not join them. That makes me so sad. So I went shopping and visited for a bit with them. Scrap on my freinds and enjoy your weekend!

"It isn't the great big pleasures that count the most; it's making a great deal out of the little ones." Jean Webster
I'm not usually a quote person so I really liked Lain's idea of using it as a source of inspiration rather than physically placing it on the layout:)

Went shopping at Archivers while in Omaha this past week and found some new paper by Doodlebug and had to use it on this layout! I rarely scrap with the color yellow but this color matched the feeling of the photo as well as her shirt...bonus!

How do I prepare for LOAD?
Prepare. That is the key! The LOADs that I found stressful were for two reasons:
1. I was not prepared.
2. I forced layouts. I have learned that if something is not coming tobether fairly quickly within 20 minutes...STOP! Go to Plan B. (be prepared!) Choose a different topic and a new set of photos. Get a fresh outlook!
Preparing looks like this for me:
a) Focus. I choose a theme or album to focus on. This eliminates 100s of possibilities. I will probably bird walk due to a daily prompt but may also use it on an already planned layout. (Themes might be portraits, posed pictures such as sports team photos or dance, etc. An album might be a trip to Disney, Halloween or your December Daily.)
b) Organize. Gather your photos, papers, ephemera, embellishments and inspiration in the next couple of weeks. Place them together in ziploc bags, scrapbook totes, files or page protectors. It's like making a kit ahead of time and putting it together one the given day. This is the same thing I try to do to prepare for a crop. This way when you have a large chunk of time set aside, scrapper's block will not set in!
c) Inspiration. That is the theme of LOAD so I will be looking at what I have already gathered. Looking in my tumblr account, LOAD faves. in Flickr and in my notebook of printed layouts / magazine pages for ideas. I will then take these ideas and place them with the photos in the page protector.
I can't wait to see what Lain has in store for us! She is so inspiring!
