Scrap Fest

So, yesterday was the big day.  Scrapbooking with the girls!!!  We got off to a little bit of a late start, as none of us can seem to be on time.  I had packed way too much stuff, again.  And I bought way too much stuff, again. 

I had a little bit of a setback when all of my creativity left me, but I just looked at a couple of magazines and came up with a really cool layout.  Not much like any of my usual pages, but I LOVE IT!  It took me way too long to do, and only features two pictures.  But did I say how much I LOVE IT?  Yeah, if I told you I’d take a picture and post it, I know you wouldn’t believe me, so I won’t.  Trust me though, it’s good. 

Page totals-


We got some serious scrappin’ done!   For lunch they provided ham or turkey sandwiches, with chips, cookies and snacks.  Olive Garden soup, salad and breadsticks were brought in for dinner, then strawberries,cookies, hot fudge, two different kinds of cake, and angel food or dessert.  I was surrounded by chocolate and diet cokes, the two things I’ve totally given up for this 40 day fast.  It was hard, but I didn’t cave.  We scrapped, ate and laughed until 10 p.m.  and boy was I tired!  I love you girls, and we have to do it again very soon.  The future of our childrens’ heritage being documented depends on it. 

I came home to a house that was a wreck!  Obviously everyone had a great time while I was gone, so I’ve spent most of the afternoon after church picking up and tackling the laundry pile.  Boring!  Brooke went with a friend to the mall, and then sleep over at her house.  The boys went with Brian to Grammie and Grandpa’s to work on race cars.  I’ve been flying solo doing this cleaning thing, and finally took a break to fill all my loyal readers in on the excitement of my life.  (Hey Mom and Dad, Love You!) 

Well, my kitchen’s still a disaster, the dishwasher needs unloaded and then loaded again with what is in the sink.  Counters and floors need cleaned.  My work is never done….

I’m up

I just finished watching The Bee Movie with Brooke.  It was a very cute show!  I also finished packing up my scrapbooking stuff for my all day crop tomorrow.  I am so excited!  Twelve hours scrappin’ with my friends…..aaaahhh! 

Today was the first day of Spring Break.  We slept in, though none of us enjoyed that more than Brooke.  She rolled out of bed at 12:17 p.m.  Yeah, I think she was tired!  I really did a lot of nothing today until around 2 p.m., then I decided to work out for an hour.  I felt pretty good about that.  Zach is sleeping over at a friends house, and I took him over right after the work out.  His friends L and S are really great.  They’re like the 3 Musketeers! 

I have laundry piled up to be done, and clean laundry piled up to be folded and I sit here blogging about it.  I’m messed up!  But I’m too excited about scrapping tomorrow.  I’ll be sure to let you know how many pages I get done.  Oh, and I’m almost done with reading the Bible in 90 days.  My official finish date was to be April 1st, and I’m right on target.  I don’t know what I’ll do when I finish it.
