The psychosis of a stressed scrapper!

Well I just thought I would share with you some of the scrapbook pages that I have done of my summer so far.  But I have to tell you it has been one he—of a summer.  Drama, drama, drama, drama.  Lord love a duck, just when you think you get one crisis dealt with in a day, then comes another one, and another, and another.  Sometimes a dozen in a day, so how in the world are you suppose to find time to scrapbook anything?
Yes I do admit I took the lazy way out.  I grabbed my digital photos and just simply used my favourite scrapbook program.  In case it wasn’t obvious:  it is the My Digital Studio from Stampin’ Up!  Gee now isn’t that a shock to the system, ha ha ha ha.  I could spend all night exalting all the virtues of how easy and fun it is to use the program but I am now in the business of sharing my life with you instead of trying to sell you on anything.
I must admit I do miss the hard copy scrapbooking, I just really haven’t found the time to do that.  Trying to deal with all the drama around here takes up the majority of my time, not to mention the housework and just dealing with daily lives.  I give kudos to those who hold a job and still manage everything else in their lives.
So this particular friend of mine called ‘depression’ has reared it’s ugly little head and has stubbornly not left my side with all of the drama this summer.  So then one would ask, “what in the world would inspire you to scrapbook and/or find the time to do so?”
Two things, well actually three to be precise, and this is this 1)  Old car dies and by the grace of God, we get a brand new 2011 right off the lot (that’s a first for me in my lifetime).  2)  Take a trip in the new said car to Nanaimo, British Columbia with family to share a week with my wonderful Mother-in-law.  Here are the scrapbook pages I did with those photos—followed by #3--

To 3)  One very spontaneous trip to Calgary this weekend with two kids.  We planned to leave on Saturday, but my husband finished work earlier than expected on Friday so we left that night instead.  Here we come, Calaway Park, Pottery Barn, friends and finally the zoo.  This is the page I came up with:

So tomorrow I have a house to get ready, a memorial to put together for my father (it will be 2yrs since he passed on Friday) and anything else I need to do before my Mom comes on Friday for the weekend.  All I know is that every day is a struggle and if you can find tidbits of time to remember the good stuff—all the more power to YOU!!!
That is the psychosis of this scrapper!!  Talk to you soon  Smile
