I think I will first start off with my personal challenge I have given myself. I actually saw on this blog from Amy in KY. How she last month did every single August page maps sketch. I that was way cool so I have challenged myself to do it also. So far I have done two.
I personally think both turned out well. And I used the scrapbookdeals4u kit I mentioned in a previous kit. I love this romantic papers and I don’t get them very much with three boys but sometimes you just have to. :DSo I think I mentioned I found some half done layouts (a whole tub of them) and I tried to finish them but got kinda bored and uninspired. I hope to find my mojo or maybe just slowly work at them to get them done. Most just need titles and well sometimes I have no inspiration. Here is a slide of them all as I didn’t want to force you to look at them all if you didn’t want too. Several of them I totally LOVE and was going to post those separate then realized I LOVE half of them enough to say I LOVE them. So I figured ah well let it be up to the beholder. :D
I have stated before I am going to an all day crop and I am determined to be more organized and only bring what I think is essentials. So first I saw on you tube how someone suggested a tackle box. I have one that I use to keep my make up in but I decided I needed it more for scrapbooking just in general. I also decided to finally use full time one of those hold all things (see picture below) and so far I am liking it.
I keep in the tote my immediate things I use often and in the tackle box things that I may use like punches but not consistent. Then I went to Pier 1 as I have never been there and found some awesome mugs for 2.48 AND this beach bag for only 3.98!! It is huge and deep and I figured perfect to carry my kits to the crop. That leaves lastly my cropper thing with wheels. So in theory I shouldn’t have a lot to drag around. Cross your fingers! lol.
Lastly, at the message boards at personal scrapper Janine (see link to her blog here she is giving away a RAK until Friday) asked us to show our first layout ever if we remembered. So today I went looking and found it. I had went to a creative memories party back sometime in 2000 and did this layout. I was hooked after that. Though I did take a large break with two very young toddler in the house and no room or money to really scrap with.
