Scrap Every Day in May
When one of my favorite bloggers, Saucy, announced her Scrap Every Day in May scrap-along I knew it was the kick in the butt I needed to get going with my scrapbooking!  While I know that there's no way I'll have the time and energy to bust out a layout every single day during the month of May, I figure this will give me the motivation to get scrapping at least!

I have two scrapbooks to work on.  One is a travel scrapbook, and the other is my (gasp!) wedding scrapbook.  Yup, I said wedding.  Yup, I've been married two years this June.  And nope, the darn wedding scrapbook is not-even-started!

You can read all the details about Scrap Every Day in May HERE.  Maybe you'll want to play along yourself?  I plan on sharing my layouts with you once a week to let you know how I'm doing... we'll see how well I do!


Don't forget that I'm out of town this weekend (visiting wonderful friends in Washington DC - lucky me!) so although I have posts set up while I'm gone, I won't be checking my e-mail or responding to comments until Monday!  Have a great weekend!

Super cute! I love the idea of using that little swirl for the top of the tree. I have an older set that has a dotted circle inside of a circle inside of a circle, which looks almost just like that swirl. I don't know if I have a tree trunk/branch stamp or not, but I like knowing I could use it as a tree top if I wanted to!
