#8. Do you struggle to create some layouts because they are too important, too special, too valuable, or too precious? In Episode 8 we’ll examine the vortex, quagmire, snowballing pit of despair that is caused by perfectionism.

We’ll get real about WHY it’s so important NOT to put off scrapbooking our really important photos, layouts, projects and albums.

We’ll talk about the imperfection and unreliability of memory… with a crazy real life example… or two!

Article in the New York Times about Brian Wilson, NBC news anchor.


PROMPT: Make a layout about a special moment or event that you’ve been avoiding, or saving, to make it “just right”. 


TIP: Take time to plan the page. You want this to be successful, so consider your design and write your journaling on scratch paper first.
