Still going strong!

The page a day challenge is still under way. If I surprised you with a 1-page layout on the last post, prepare to be shocked.  (For some reason the pictures of these layouts turned out really crappy...don't know what happened there!)

Monday



These are my favorite pictures of Jackson. They are the first pictures that I got of him really awake and wide eyed. I think I ended up taking 60 pictures of him!

Tuesday



A 1-page layout! Most of the time, even if I have only a few pictures, I will still go with a 2-page layout but this one just wasn't working for me. I ended up condensing it to a 1-page. I'm not a big fan of how this one turned out. I really don't like the paint on the background. It's bugging me enough that I'll probably switch it to plain white cardstock.

Wednesday



Here's the shocker... another 1-page layout! It was basically the same situation as the other one. I started with a 2-page layout in mind but it just wasn't coming together the way I wanted. What's funny is that most of the time it takes me longer to put together a 1-page layout than it does for me to do a 2-page layout. I struggle with 1-pagers!

So I'm six days in and haven't missed a day yet. It helps that when Drew is napping, Jackson hangs out in my scrapbook room with me. Sometimes he sleeps and other times he babbles and I babble back. Then at night I usually stay up until 1 or 2 a.m. With Jackson sleeping through the night and Mike letting me sleep in until he heads off to work, I get plenty of sleep. It's a crazy, crammed schedule but it works!

I don't think you should change the painted background. I love that one! But if it bugs you, I understand.:)

I like the splash of color on that layout. I do know what you mean about 1 pagers being harder to plan though. I sruggle too! I'm up till atleast 1:30 every night. Notice the post time on my comment! LOL! Night time is the best time. (to get things done!)Talk to you soon.

Happy Birthday dear sister! May all your numbers be even and may you never have to hear the word "panties" again.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
