does anyone else find them self in a slump with scrapping, I have no creativity or even want to scrapbook right now.
how do i get it back? I'm thinking it's because I don't have any real interesting photos to do right now, we are getting married in 4 months so nothing there, no kids, no winter or spring hobbies to scrap nada.

any ideas even of other crafts I could take up to pass the time, I have this week off from work and work this weekend again so nothing till friday and i'm bored!!!!!

I went to michaels to browse for supplies and didn't find anything that grabbed my eye

Well, with a 3 month old, I am not having this problem, I just don't have any time to scrap! I don't know what you have done so far, but I did an entire album of the events leading up to our wedding. I didn't want to forget ANYTHING! It includes pretty much everything...me and my friends shopping for bridesmaids dresses, my dress fittings, all my wedding showers, the proposal, everything you could think of! I also did an album of our first home that we bought and lived in together. I thought that it was just a really special thing, so I took pictures of every room and all the remodeling we did and all that. You can also do pages of just everyday activities that you think are pretty boring now, but one day you can look back and laugh at them! I have a page of a HUGE pile of laundry and I journaled about what it was like being a wife the first couple days and learning how to keep up with a house. It was like 7 or 8 loads of laundry that had just piled up until we were laughing! I'll try to think of some more ideas for you and maybe post some of my layouts I was telling you about tomorrow! Hope I helped some!

When Rich and I were dating I would take pics of our favorite places to go. Course there were always family events to take pics of

Have you thought of making jewlery for your bridesmades gifts or card making?

If you lived closer I'd have you over to help me scrap, I'm getting so far behind

thanks, i'm going to try to scrap today and see if I get any inspiration, we are going to take care of jareds neice this weekend so I can take lots of pics. i'm thinking i am going to make a book for her mom and that will pass the time but for right now i just got the book new moon (second in twilight series) downloaded to my computer since the ones I ordered won't be here for awhile. so hopefully it passes the time. if I actually get some scrapping done today I will post them.

You could also go to Page|Maps and look at the layouts and see if they have anything to get you going.

I've also found that the cyber crops (you can look at the subforum for old challenges, or there's one this weekend) get me going. Or going through all my old leftover embellishments and stuff to see if I can get any ideas.
Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog
