Okay, so you are all dying to know...... I got 17 Pages done!!!! That is an all-time record for me at a crop. (Jill, your organizational advise was HUGE!! Thanks).
I am trying to get pictures of some of those pages up on the blog, but having trouble with the scanner here at work (oops, did I say I was doing personal stuff at work?? - it's my lunch break, and we have high-speed here....WWAAAYYYY nicer than at home). I will try to get them up on the blog in the next few days. Just know that, yes Shawna, I used vinyl!!
Til next time, let the sun shine!! Take care.

I am super excited about these, because I am always stumped on the title for my pages. Now, I actually have the titles, and now have to design the layout to go with it. How Fun!
I am looking at adding some family words in the next little while (ie. auntie, unc, nanna, opa, ma). I think in that way the vinyl will be nice, because I don't see those words very often, especially if you have certain little "quirky" names for your family members. No, not those words (it's a family show, ladies!).
I am off this weekend to a local crop (yes, I do stay home now and then, just maybe THEN for right now). I am so excited for this crop, because 1- it's the last one before summer (which means that summer should be coming soon) and 2- because THIS time I am prepared. I usually end up most of the time sorting through paper and boxes of embellishments for pages, and then end up using the same ones anyway. This time, thanks to advise from a certain sister (thanks Jill!) I spent one night and put ALL my paper out on the floor. I then pulled out 4-5 sheets that I thought could possibly go together on a layout, and put then in a bag together......continue on for the next two hours, and I have all my paper packed up for the weekend. I then moved on to embellishments, and even pulled out all my older stuff. Same thing, bags of goodies that would work together. NOW>>>> pull out picture, grab paper bag, trinket bag to go with, and VIOLA! It's a layout. I have high hopes of actually acomplishing something this weekend... will let you know how it turns out!!!
Thanks for your time today. It felt nice to catch up with the blog. (Although high speed internet service would make my life a little easier with that aspect). Have an enjoyable day, and try to scrap a little this weekend just for you! Take care.
