My bags are organized and sitting in the entry room ready to be packed for Saturday morning. I am very proud of myself I managed only four bags two of which I bungeed together. I should be able to find things fairly easily and carry all in at the same time. Here is the four bags and then inside that beach bag I got fairly cheap at Pier 1.
So that is my computer bag that will have my laptop, personal effects (lip gloss, moolah, Tylenol, etc). The beach bag has all my kits, extra embellishments, stamps, extra paper, and misc photos. The crop tote on wheels has my organizer tool tote, box of photos, slice, and odds and ends. (I almost forgot my slice cards until I went back downstairs for something else. I need to make sure I get the glass mat in there too. And then the tackle box is the rest of tools that aren’t used as much including my two trusty punches.I also finished two kits that had just a few papers left. These three are from the June PS add on. All the pics are the same but I have three boys so ya’ll know that happens :D
And these are from Alex’s birthday and are from the last of the June scrapbookdeals4u kit by Bella blvd. (LOVED IT!!) Some of the embellishments were from stash and Collage Press. I LOVE them for tags and journal spots.
Then I started using some older papers I have and managed one layout before I decided I needed to start focus on some real packing for Saturday. I LOVE how it turned out as well. Actually I have been liking a lot of my layouts and to tell you that is not bragging as often I am Uber critical of myself. It is even getting me thinking maybe I could actually try some DT calls.
Lastly Scrapbookdeals4u is having another contest (I know i said no more but it sounded interesting so why not :D ) It has a class theme. So first there was English 101 which is one of the flip flops layouts above and was to do another page map with three photos and a full sentence for the title. The other was music 101 and really LOVE how it turned out. It was to find your heart song which right now is lady antebellum Run to You. I had been wanting to lift a layout by Amy -- a regular on the PS board who had her whole background as lyrics to a song her boys love to listen too. So here is my rendition of what she did.
This is a picture of DH and I during our family portraits at JC Penney. I put all the lyrics in groups around the photo. I hope I get a few votes for it :D The flowers are homemade from a you tube video I found showing how to make them. They are my new obsession. :D
