Scrapbook Retreat!

I attended my first ever weekend scrapbooking retreat this past weekend. I can't even begin to explain how much fun I had! I loved seeing all the new products, trying new techniques and looking through everyone else's books. So much inspiration!

I was VERY productive too. My goal was to complete 40 pages and finish my 2009 Family Album. I exceeded both goals! I finished 43 pages and not only completed the 2009 album but started Wild One's baby album!

Here are a few of my favorite pages. First, my 2009 album.

Sesame Street Live


Pinky's first day of school (I love the colorful paper).



Closer look at the school pages


Two of my many pages about the pumpkin patch


Pinky's 4th birthday page

And a few pages from Wild One's album:

Title page (with her name cropped out)


Ultrasound pictures. I used the Cricut to cut the title. I really need to use mine more - there is so much you can do with them!

I've already marked my calender to attend again next year. Is it too early to start counting down the days?

All Day Crop!

What a wonderful, wonderful day. My Creative Memories consultant hosted a Summer Social all day crop today. I managed to finish 19 pages! Here are my pics, edited for privacy.


One of the last pages of Chaos' baby album - the story of finding out we were expecting. Only 2 pages left and his album will be done!


A two page spread for our family album. I am loving the calendar pages. I'm sure years from now when I look back on what we were doing I will be so glad that I have these!






A whole bunch of pages about Easter (there is one missing that didn't get done).




A few pages of Pinky's ballet observation class. I LOVED using the new Delight line from Creative Memories for this line. I've been working on Chaos' album for so long that it was fun to work with some pink!




Our first camping trip with Chaos (it was a disaster). I still need to add journaling for the first page (the location of the park was the title that I edited out).




Pinky's BIG SHOW (her dance recital). I love these pages.

Today's crop brings my grand total to 44 pages! Wow!

Summer Page Challenge, 2

More completed pages for the Scrapbook Challenge. I intentionally took pics of the calendar pages before I added info to them. I also blurred out the faces of the other children in Pinky's ballet class for privacy reasons. I apologize for not taking the 2 page layout pictures side by side. That certainly would have saved me some space!


Three pages for Chaos' album - a cover page (which looked much, much cooler without his real name cut out) and a 2 page spread of his nursery.


First 2 page spread of the family 2009 album. This is my first family album, and my first time using the calendar pages to keep track of what we're doing month to month. I thought it may be fun to look back on.


2 page layout of Pinky's first day of ballet for the family album



February calendar and 3 pages of a trip to see family for the family album

After adding these 11 pages, my summer count total is 22. I have an all day crop coming up before the summer ends, so I'm really hoping I can get close to 50 pages!
