Sunday Scrappin'


Amy at Tiny Blessings is our charming hostess for Sunday Scrappin'. She invites paper crafters of all kinds, traditional scrapbookers, and digital scrapbookers to join us each week as we display our ta-da's and commit to our to-do's. She even offers an optional challenge where the prize is the satisfaction of a job well done.

Wow! What a busy week! I was able to accomplish so much more than usual because my oldest step-daughter started working and my 12 year old twins are out of state visiting one of their grandmothers. The 15 year old step-daughter spends a lot of time on facebook or at the movies, and hubby has to work, so I had a lot of "alone" time, and I didn't waste it!


Ta-da's
8 - Count them! - 8 scrapbook pages completed. 3 of them are double layouts (6 pages) plus 2 single page layouts. Admittedly, the 2 single page layouts were completed in "get her done" mode, but still... [btw, there was a glare when I took photos of my last two pages... bummer!] I also completed a card (you'll see in a minute).
I ordered prints (from Webshots, which I love) of my Disney trip from March and my Arizona trip from June. I can't wait to start on those!

I also purchased an Arizona "title" on ebay and shopped for some adhesives, vellum, and Las Vegas stickers.

I did some research on purchasing the Cricut, and I have a plan that is going to allow me to get it sooner than I thought.

Chrissy - a fellow Sunday Scrapper and awesome card-maker, helped me so much this week. We "talked" about stamping, adhesives, the cricut, Stickles, and so much more. She gave me some encouragement to try new things. Thanks, Chrissy.
Last, I took an ordinary shoebox and covered it with scrapbook paper, so now it is a pretty box I'm using to hold onto scraps, stickers I'm bored with, etc.









There was no sketch challenge at my favorite site, 52 sketches. She had complications with her pregnancy, and things didn't go well. Please pray for Julie. Sketches and scrapbooking must take a back seat to the other things she is dealing with right now.

To-do's
There is no way I could top this week in what I was able to do, but I will...
  • Complete at least 4 pages (2 double layouts).

  • Find more Disney papers and Arizona embellishments.

  • Organize my photos once they come in.

  • Attempt to complete the challenges at Sunday Scrappin' and 52 Sketches (whenever she is able to post one again.)

Challenge

I did it! RAOK. (random act of kindness) I made a card for a friend I haven't seen in about two years. I love and miss her. She was like a second mom until she retired and moved out to the country. Email is about the only way I get to communicate with her.




This week's challenge is... play in the grass! Scrap photos of someone playing in the yard... use grassy paper... make a card involving something in your yard (a BBQ?).... make a green fringed border that looks like grass... you get the idea. Have fun with it!


Won't you join us for Sunday Scrappin'?

I love these pages! I want to get back to my scrapbooking one of these days - if I can just get past the baby stage of life!

Eight pages, how awesome is that? Good luck on your list for next week.

8 pages is fantastic, I love how you assemble your double pages.

That is very sad about Julie's baby. I am very sorry to hear that.

Hope you have a productive week.
