This weekend I scrapbooked more than I have in months. I told Matthew I was experiencing a creative renaissance. He laughed at me. But seriously, it was crazy. We are talking six layouts and seven additional pages in a keepsake scrapbook/baby book (where I simply had to fill in a bunch of questions). Pretty much everything is for the Best in Baby Scrapbooking. You guys are going to LOVE these products. They are simply amazing and make it so easy to create incredible projects. I hope I can wait two more weeks!
Creative High and Choosing to Cheat

And here is the one layout that is not for the Best in Baby Scrapbooking. It uses a few of the products that Fancy Pants sent me for winning its fall layout contest. I am in love with this product line – Splendid. Isn’t it adorable? Elias isn’t bad either.
Sunday at church Pete talked about how there simply isn’t enough time to get everything done that we need to in our days. That we have to choose to cheat something. For me, it is pretty much always our house. I would rather hold Elias than dust. I would rather watch a movie in Matthew’s arms that vacuum. I would rather scrapbook a memory than scrub the bathroom floor. And it was liberating to hear Pete say you have to cheat something (this concept was taken from the book Choosing to Cheat). It is impossible to do it all. So, house, I choose you. Sorry. Experiencing life and loving those in it will always be more important than making you spotless.
What do you chose to cheat?
