Hi everyone! I want to invite you to take part in National Scrapbook Month with Scrappin' Servant. If you are here from the Mr. Linky on her site, welcome! If you're here from Sunday Scrappin', welcome to you, too!
I'm a 42 year old mom who wishes she had more time to scrap (doesn't everybody?), but I don't because I work outside the home full time, and I have 11 year old twins to keep up with in addition to two step-daughters (ages 15 and 19) who live with us and a 27 year old step-son (who doesn't live with us anymore because now he is a father of 7 month old twin boys). Whew! That was a mouthful.
I've been scrapping a long time, but my techniqes have not stayed current. I need to take some classes in new trends and techniques, but there's the time issue again. I am so far behind, but I ~HEART~ scrapping in a big way. I even want to give digital scrapbooking another try. The program I used to use isn't compatible with Vista, so I'm shopping for a new one. But, I love the camradarie of crops! And I would have been at one last weekend if it weren't for my son's baseball game. That had to come first.
Carolyn at Scrappin' Servant asks us to share a way that we are "going green" by reusing items in our scrapbooks. I have two examples. I used parts of brochures from Colorado in our vacation scrapbook, and I used parts of greeting cards in our wedding scrapbook.
Carolyn has great tutorials over on her site for all of you that want to learn a thing or two like me.
To join in for Scrappin' Sunday, just visit the site, sign the Mr. Linky, post your ta-das and your to-dos, and answer the bonus question if you'd like.
I've already posted my ta-das above. My to-dos are to get myself in gear! And to take part in National Scrapbook Month. The bonus question is, "Did you make anything special for Mother's Day this year?" Sadly, no, I didn't. But I got her lots of nice stuff! I'm still trying to set up my workspace downstairs where I can leave things out and work on it undisturbed in bits and pieces of time I might have.
I wish you all a scrappy week!
