My page maps so far

Like I stated in my last post I have challenge/decided to do all the page maps for the month of September.  Here are the ones I have done the last two nights.  I think I am half way done.

So now that I look at the September Page Maps site all i have left is one more 8 1/2x11 and two double layouts.  Not sure if I will do the doubles as I am really not into doubles but then again it wouldn’t be a challenge if you didn’t do even the harder ones you don’t really want to do.  Right?!  :D

All right so of course it is seven days until Scrapapolooza and I am still in CAN’T WAIT mode!  I have decided I am only taking my oldest personal scrapper kits so I can really make myself use them up.  And it isn’t that I don’t like them I just haven’t been in the mood to use them.  Now I am going to make myself.  I am also taking some BG Porcelain paper I have so I can buy items to make it a kit.  I think this way will totally give me some perspective on how hard it is to run a kit club and pick the perfect embellishments and alphas within a budget!  I am going to hate to pay full price though!  I figured out the months I have to use up are March, April, July (only because I got burned out on Summer Soiree and I am not really sure if I will bust it out but I will some some summer pics sooo…. ) and August.  I LOVE the August so I am for sure using that one.  To view what is in these kits click the link above and go to kits.  It will bring them all up.  I might also bring the add on’s I should be getting with the September kit.  I would bring the september but I want to use the older ones and it is more school themed and I haven’t printed off too many school photos yet.  It is a new line barely out though so I might do it to show off… but then again to whom?  I am going by myself and have headphones on so very little people bother me.  Though my slice was a hit with the people around me.  :D  And my ATG gun.  The add on’s were some paper trunk Kraft paper and this cute kit  

I love mini kits as you have less paper so you get them used up quicker.  I know sad.  lol but it just makes me feel accomplished.  And I don’t get bored.  So I think that is all for now.  It is raining here so now fun Labor Day weekend pics.  the boys are just battling each other on WII star wars.  It is so cute to see my three year old actually manage to play and beat the older boys sometimes.  lol
