I know we are anxiously awaiting Springtime to start to show some signs of its arrival.  As of today we are still getting snow.  While I actually enjoy the snow I know a lot of people are done with the snow.  Since we are still waiting why not prepare some layout for all those great photos you plan to take once it does arrive.  Today’s Artbooking Made Easy video features the keys on pages 62 and 63.

Artbooking Made Easy ~ Crush on Artbooking

I have been wanting to tackle a My Crush Album but I have been unsure

of how to go about starting it.  I know it is intended to be more on the

go style of scrapbooking.  I would love to be able to embrace that but I

have to be honest in saying I have to plan and not just fly by the seat of

my pants.  I so admire those who do.  After seeing this video which

incorporates Artbooking into the My Crush Albums, I now know how

I can proceed.
