Scrapbooking in 2023 | The Goals

I imagine that in regard to scrapbooking, 2023 will be fairly similar to 2022, and that thought has helped to consolidate this year’s goals. Storage for albums remains at a premium, so I’m continuing the theme of one layout for each month this year – 12 in 23 – and One Little Word spreads.

Our trip to Jersey is looming and I've been working on the foundation pages for the journal I'll use to record the details of our visit.

Recording Our Northern Road Trip

I've lost my way a little with my scrapbooking recently, storage space for new albums is almost non-existent and I'm about done with taking a large bag of stash with me when we travel.
