I think you may be off on your date of the 12th?
Anywho, I have you beat, Tami! I haven't scrapped since late 2015! Leave it to Disney scrappers to get me going again. :) I always find inspiration here, and nothing gives me more scrapping joy than my Disney photos. :)
I don't really have plans for mother's day tomorrow, since Ashley is headed back up to college with the cat babies at noon, so it will be fairly low-key with the hubs and Miss Anna. I'm hoping to have time to scrap a few more pages from the challenge.
Don't tell anyone, but I know what my family got me for mother's day! The hubs ordered it through a place where I am the main account holder, so the invoice was sent to me instead of him. I deleted all the records of it so he still thinks I don't know what it is.
Hint: It is something magical that I will have to "build" out of a certain type of plastic blocks, it will be really, REALLY fun yet challenging to put together, it will stand nearly 3 feet tall, and will be simple beautiful when it is completed! Eeeeeeee!!!!!
Morning all. Happy Mothers' Day to those in the US
We have sun here at the moment.
Sounds like a fun day Natalie
Sounds like Michael didn't do too badly for a first house party and he stayed dry too
Look forward to seeing your pages again Nancy. That is a fab present (if I'm guessing correctly)
I loved Baby Groot too Wendy. He's so funny dancing at the beginning
I'm hoping to scrap later. DS2 has work and DS1 is doing revision ready for his first exam tomorrow. There is also a food show on in town that I would like to visit so we'll see :)
Just looking at papers. Does anyone know if the red and yellow in Echo Park's Magic and Wonder are any better than the red and yellow in SS Say Cheese? I'm trying to get colours for a Mickey page
Thanks for that Susan. Will have a look and see if I can find any still available online :)
I haven't seen last night's Dr Who yet. Might try and watch it this evening
Happy Mother's Day everyone!
I'm not sure if I'll get to scrap today. We are getting ready for church and then will Skype with our oldest son and grandsons and my 2nd oldest will be calling later on today as well. We'll probably play a game of Cribbage with #3 later on this evening. I do have the "2 page sketch layout challenge" sitting on my desk but I'm not sure I'll spend much time on it until Tuesday, which is my next day off. My hubby is a trucker and gets home on weekends only. So...my freedom is more limited on the weekends. I do intend on spending more quality days scrapping now that my mojo is back.
I wasn't able to do much scrapping for the past couple of years because we packed up my room and moved from Anchorage AK to NO WHERE NC. I also had some heavy duty responsibilities when we first got here that are now gone. I am really enjoying scrapbooking more now than ever in my life! I think not having it readily available has made it more precious. I now make an effort to enjoy each layout...no matter how long they take. You know...enjoy the journey...rather than try to get 'em done. I'm enjoying this scrap philosophy so much better than pushing myself to hurry up and finish a project. I take too many photos for it ever to be DONE!
I am right there with Nancy and probably everyone here, nothing makes me happier than scrapping my Disney photos! They are so much fun and colorful! I had to endure for a full month as I scrapped the photos leading up to our 2011 WDW vacation. Though I loved the subject matter, it just wasn't the same. ;-)
Hubby, birthday boy #4 son and I went to see Guardians in 2D yesterday afternoon. After reading Susan's post about it being made for 3D, I texted my son at work and asked if he will go see it again in 3D this Tuesday. Of course he said YES! YAY!! I'm looking forward to that.
This morning I sat on our back porch and took photos of a couple of brave cardinals who were willing to eat at our feeders even with this strange human on the porch. I got a few really good photos. Its a warm and very sunny day here in rural NC. I thoroughly enjoyed my solitude and the birdsong!
Happy Mother's Day to everyone!
Nancy--I saw your layouts in the gallery. They are fantastic! I need to go back & leave comments in the gallery. That is an awesome Mother's Day gift. I would probably get frustrated and not finish it. LOL
Julia--I can understand why you would be nervous. I worry about EVERYTHING when it comes to Danica. Poor kid. Since she is an only she gets my full anxiety directed at her. She doesn't have the luxury of having it spread out over siblings. LOL!
Tami--A special Happy Mother's Day to you! You have to be one of the best fur mama's that I have the pleasure of knowing!
The lease on my Honda Accord Sport was about to expire so we decided to purchase the vehicle. It has only 20,000 miles on it & I really love it so we decided to pay off the balance and now we own it. No more payments! Yay! Nik cracks me up. We decided we want to purchase some new bedroom furniture. Nik turns to me and says "it's like you just won the "Showcase Showdown." First a car and now a room full of bedroom furniture. LOL! I'm just glad it's not a year's supply of Rice-A-Roni.
We celebrated Mother's Day yesterday. We went out to dinner and then we saw Guardians of the Galaxy 2. We loved it! It was better than the first one. It was so funny!
We plan on hanging out at home today. I'll probably get some scrapping time. I'm still plugging along on Danica's High School scrapbook album. I'm really enjoying working with collections that wouldn't work with Disney photos. I'm also finding that I'm doing a lot more journaling with this album. I don't feel the need to include a lot of journaling when I scrap Disney photos unless something special or out of the ordinary happened. The high school photos need the journaling to tell the story behind the photo or event. I think it will make the album even more special.
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
Oh. I forgot to mention....I decided to create a separate Instagram account for just my scrapbook layouts. If you want to follow me my username is: scrappybethb625. I thought it would be fun for me to have all of my layouts in one place.
