Self, It's Done!


I am sure many of us digital scrapbookers can identify with working SO hard and long to get a layout just right. Sometimes we feel as if we will never finish a layout.

When I first started digital scrapbooking, a wise and beautiful lady (Glenda) once said to me, sometimes, you just have to say "Self, It's done."

I immediately put a sticky note on my computer as a reminder. I really used that reminder a lot over the next year until I learned the habit of saying these words to myself in my head.

I made this graphic for you today so that you may snag it as your "sticky note."

I was reminded today of this wonderful moment in my scrapping life by some words posted in the forums.

"A snapshot is a moment in time. You captured a moment. What you do with it, creates a memory. You have done an awesome job of savoring...this memory. Don't beat yourself up for something that might or might not be in National Geographic. Instead reflect and enjoy this happy family time. Every picture you have...is one that is not lost. Enjoy!"

I could not have said it any better.

Great sentiment. Yes, I finally also made myself understand that it is more important that the photos get seen than it is to be sure every single little detail of a page is magnificent.

Thank you for sharing this; I really needed to hear it. I spend WAY too much time on each layout. I'll have to remember to tell myself I'm done. :)
