February 1-3 Pocket Scrapbooking | The Nerd Nest 1

This is the third spread I made for the February Nerd Nest Challenge Start in the Middle to get myself jumpstarted on 2018 pocket scrapbooking during the construction zone disaster that is currently my office.

I picked this spread because it covers only three days, so I knew that choosing photos for it and figuring out my pocket arrangement would be pretty simple.

I kept the spread super easy: just photos and two journaling cards. My printer was running out of ink and a few of my photos printed kind of muddy before I noticed, but I decided to roll with them anyway. I’m in get-it-done mode, not craft-and-create mode right now.
