Photo Freedom - Stacy Julian

So I have been meaning to get my photos more organized for a while now... Stacy Julian came to the MemoryWorks retreat (I couldn't go though DANG!) and did a talk on this subject and introduced her new book, "Photo Freedom"... The consultants were revved up about it, so I bought it to see what it was all about.

It is AWESOME. It is definitely not for the faint of heart as this system is about totally not sorting your photos chronologically. It is kinda hard to explain the whole system, but I started getting out ALL my photos this weekend and am going to put this system into place.

Already I have found inspiration for layouts for photos I hadn't seen in YEARS. I think it will definitely make me more productive in my scrapbooking...

I highly recomend the book to those needing a system for their photos. Even if you can't let go of the chronological system (I am kinda anal about knowing what photo is from what year), you can tailor the system to fit your needs...

I can't wait to see how it affects my scrapbooking...

You get can get it on and get started right away:

And here is the website for the book:

Two New Cricut Cartridges

Provocraft is getting ready to release two new Cricut Cartridges... They look pretty cute!

Storybook reminds me of fairytales. I can see using this cartridge for little girl pages (crap I have no little girls) and wedding albums. I think I may get this cartridge for my wedding album... Check it out:

The 2nd new cartridge is called Graphically Speaking. This one is really cool too! I can see using this one for all kinds of cards, my boy layouts, and lots of other projects.

They come out in mid-July and many online stores are already taking pre-orders for them. I think I may wait until they come out so I can see all the images on each cartridge...

They look like lots of fun though! :)

Wednesday Hero: 6/4/08

Petty Officer 2nd Class Adam F. Kinney
Petty Officer 2nd Class Adam F. Kenney
U.S. Navy

Petty Officer 2nd Class Adam F. Kinney, a Navy Corpsman with Company E, 2nd Battalion, 24th Marine Regiment, Regimental Combat Team 1, gives an Iraqi Child a shot during a routine patrol. Kinney is assigned to Echo Co. for their seven-month deployment and will return to his parent command, 4th Tank Battalion in Fort Knox, Ky., upon his arrival.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived
