LOAD213 - wrap up

I completed the LOAD challenge in February - with a total of 29 completed layouts - three of them included a companion 6x12 journaling page, 2 of them were 2 page layouts.

I was able to follow some of the prompts, but often chose to follow my heart instead.

I scrapped a lot of stories that had been waiting on my "to be scrapped" list for quite awhile - including my precious stories from Sian's Story Telling Sunday, Orange Crush, Leadfoot and Fraidycat, a great Becca personality page, Living with Fibromyalgia, and Michelle's Wedding.

There were also a number of pages that were "in the moment" scrapbooking - Rachel's visit to the E.R., my Simply a Moment page, What Blizzard?, the mac-n-cheese page.

There were a few done strictly to satisfy Creative Team requirements, a few to fulfill online class assignments, and then there were a few created on days when I just didn't want to scrap... for the sole purpose of getting a page done to post in the Flickr gallery... and I just gotta say... there isn't a single layout in the whole lot that I don't like or regret taking the time to complete! I'm so happy with all of the stories I've preserved this month.  Including these from Days 26 and 28:

If you've ever considered joining LOAD and seeing what it feels like to tell so many stories in such a tight time frame, I highly recommend it! The next LOAD session is in May. Hope to see you there!

You have a wonderful collection of pages completed. May doesn't seem too far away, it would be amazing if you could do it all over again!

I love these Year in Review pages. I don't think I've ever done one, and need to put them on a To Scrap list. I'll be away half of May, so LOAD is out of the question. I wish there was a fall version. February and May are just too close together.

Congrats on completing so many wonderful layouts! I'm like you in that no matter what the inspiration for a layout or just pulling one together at the last minute, I ended up really liking them all & glad that I took time to make them!
