October Class at Scrap Freak

I am so looking forward to this class being taught by Jessica. I am going to do a Christmas cookie album, I think, as Christmas will be here before I know it.

I also have a binder DH bought me to keep all of our recipes in. I may work on that too. In any event I can't wait to get started!

Scrap Pink

This past weekend was Scrap Pink. A National scrapbooking event where various LSS and online stores organize crops to raise $ to benefit the Susan G Komen foundation.

Lesson 23 - I wish...

Lesson 23- I wish...

We all wish and want.
For little things, for big things.
For selfish things, for things for others.
For thing of great value and things of little value.
Some wishes could change our entire life, while others would be forgotten almost as soon as they are granted.

Think about the things you wish for and let that inspire you. You can create a page about a wish, a page about how you wish your life was like right now, or even just a page about what your wishes SAY about you.

I actually was so inspired by this prompt I am doing 2 projects. I did a page about how i wish my nephews grow up to be close the way my brother and I were, and I am doing a mini on things big and small I wish I had or could do. The mini is not quite done but i wanted to share my layout.

Meet the Freaks

Due to the generosity of Jessica and her husband who donated airline miles, I was able to join the freaks in Wisconsin for their annual crop. I had a wonderful time meeting people IRL and managed to not get hassled too much for my hatred of cheese in the land of all things dairy.

It was sooo hard to pack for a crop that I was flying to. I thought bringing mini albums to work on was the best bet but I think in the future I will do page kits. It's just so hard for me to scrap without all my stuff about me. For me I packed "light" and still managed to go over my weight allotment by 3lbs.

I managed to get 2 mini albums 80% done. All covered with paper, photos attached and some of the journaling done. I just couldn't do the embellishments as I didn't pack the right ones.

If you want to see pics from my trip I posted them on my Flickr account.

Ill post project pics as soon as they get done.

Kathi's birthday

Spent the day at Archivers cropping with the girls and celebrating Kathi's birthday. It's been a while since we have been together and as always it was just too much fun. Here are some shots from the fiesta lunch :)

Lesson 22 - Something Cherished

Lesson 22 - Something Cherished
Most of us surround ourselves with objects... from mundane everyday items to those special keepsakes we can't stand to part with. This week I want to you reflect of the objects around you and document at least one item that holds meaning for you!

Journaling reads:

This photo was taken in 1972 at my mom's baby shower. My dad is holding my very first bear. He has fur that's almost real and he used to growl when you moved him. Now bear is too fragile to cuddle with and only grunts if you shake him really hard. I still cherish him and the memories of his better days.
