For the 3rd time in a row, Maya, Arielle and I are participating in the

This year we played with products from Catherine Pooler Designs, Ranger ink and Lawn Fawn.
We had some serious fun!
To see our 3 cards, I'll invite you to head over to my YouTube channel.
There are so many sponsors this year and so many prizes to win! Over 1000$ in prizes! Isn't that incredible?! To win, simply like and comment on as many videos as you'd like. Arielle, Maya and I would also appreciate a follow. :)
See you over there!!

Last Monday I was so happy to jump over my fear and be a guest on the Scrapgals podcast! Yay for being brave! Right?!
If you want to listen to the episode you'll have to register for the podcast and you can do so right here.
The episode is called Marie's dilemma and was prompted when I talked about having not scrapbooked in 3 years and being kind of lost as of where to start again.
After looking at all my already created albums/layouts, and after making some switches of some layouts that should live in different albums, I came up with the list of what I have, which is always a good starting point:
My Childhood (birth to 20 years old - right before I met my husband) | 2 albums full
Vancouver/Meeting my husband | Some layouts
Switzerland (1999 to 2010) | Some layouts
Travels (occurred while living in Switzerland + after kids) | 1 album full
Our wedding | Some layouts
Our honeymoon | Some layouts
My oldest daughter | 3 albums
My youngest daughter | 2 albums
Project Life/Day to day life | 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 (half the year)
Prague and Paris | some layouts (more than I thought)
From there, I decided to write down what I wanted to have in my library of memories, in other words, what I want to add to my collection:
Teenage years - jobs, cars, brother, synchronized skating, Highschool - 3 schools, prom, graduation, summers with brother and friends
Vancouver - friends, family, school, private classes, activities
Wedding - civil
Wedding - religious Guests, flowers, music, colors, invitation, menu, photograph, ceremony, reception
Honeymoon - Camping trip through USA
Honeymoon - Cruise
Honeymoon - Canada with the inlaws
Honeymoon - Canada with the friends
Travel - one layout per place visited
Switzerland - moving to... German classes, friends, outings with the boys, job
Bachelor degree in Canada (4 years)
Back to Switzerland (before having my baby)
Young mom - 2 babies away from home, expat life but not really
Travel after kids (take out of family album and gather as travel instead)
Moving to USA - life in USA (other than Project Life) - moves to Farmington, Avon, NC
Prague - special stories: house, villae, school, friends, concerts/dance, city, visits, special events and visits
Travel while living again in Europe (2016-2019)
Move to Cleveland/summer (2019)
Everyday life - Covid
Since the podcast appearance and talk with the two hosts (Tiffany and Tracie), I have much more clarity as you can see by my "want-to-do list" and with clarity comes Mojo and motivation! Woohoo! I have to say that I have had Tiffany watching over my shoulder and steering me in the right direction every day of the week! lol
Here's the first layout I made and that will go into my Prague album:
