I've been thinking about Memory Makers Masters lately. The deadline is nearing and I have nothing created for it. I really wanted to give this another go this year after trying it last year (and not getting anywhere, except for my Joy & Comfort being published months later in the Babies issue). I'd like to think of that entry as the starting point for taking my scrapping a bit more seriously. I created a couple of layouts I was really happy with last month that I should have saved for MMM, but of course I was too keen to show them off to the world. Should really learn to control my impulses, LOL. Quite honestly I don't see how I could create five stunning pages in such a short amount of time. I have too much other (nsbr) energy sapping stuff happening in my life. Can't seem to get in the right frame of mind. So realistically I'm a non-entrant this year :-(. Must say I'm pretty bummed about that. Oh well, on to the next competition. For Keeps Awards for Excellence, due in September. That should give me plenty of time to prepare and hold back some pages.

Will have to add a pic of last years MMM Joy & Comfort tomorrow, little girl waking up and needing attention.

Set a goal for next year to enter the MMM. Focus on some short term goals to help get some scrapbboking mojo back. More importantly try and I know this is hard to have some me time for you to do some nice non scrapping stuff for you!! Even if its just an hour out at a cafe on your own!!

Was going to leave you a message further down, but there was no link for comments.

Hugs to you, girl, with your situation with John. Know that feeling sooo well, mine is not BP, but has chronic depression....Hmmmm, just need a few weeks on a tropical island with sun, sea and surf, half naked island boys serving cocktails, and just blobbing out...dreams huh???

Take care sweetie.
