I seriously love getting messy and being creative, but you know what? With a job and two kids, sometimes I don’t get to make things as often as I’d like. Well, at least not my own stuff. Lol… #momlife
The irony, right?
And of course when you finally do get a few minutes to yourself, you’re not really sure what to do. You have so many things on your creative to-do list, but you’re just not quite sure where to start. It’s so easy to get overwhelmed.
That’s where this challenge comes in. These prompts are meant to give you a starting point. Grab a stack of photos, pick a challenge, and get started. It’s as easy as that! Not only will you be getting those pictures into albums, but you’ll also be using your stash. And that’s seriously a win-win, friends!
