Spring Cleaning

Well, it's that time again. Time for the spring cleaning! I know. I know. Boo, hiss, yuck! This year I'm kind of getting some sort of twisted pleasure from it. Very strange. Don't get me wrong, I'm in NO WAY "company clean" or anything even close to that, but I do actually feel like I've made a dent in the overall chaos that is my home!

The interesting thing is that I find that when I'm in the middle of Spring Cleaning I start to see it reflected in my layouts too. (Now this is a sure sign of a completely addicted scrapper!) I find myself breaking out of the "1 kit per layout" mode and creating layouts with a little of this and a little of that. Now this is the "house cleaning" I can handle! Here's 1 example of what I'm talking about. (Created using designs by Kiki, Sherry Ferguson, Faith True, Ann-Marie, Deb Fisher, Natali Designs, Kim Hill and Victoria Feemster-click image to find full list of credits.)

So, how's that cleaning going? Any good tips or ideas out there? How do you keep motivated? And, on the scrapping side of things, any "spring cleaning layouts" you'd like to share? Link us up!
