Its Monda and a new week

Have I mentioned I LOVE Halloween?!!! Want some candy? Monday, a new week of school, homework, extracurricular activities, being a chaffeur and looking forward to SATURDAY when I get to attend a 15 hour crop up in Dayton at Simply Scrapbooks and hook up with my step-mom Bernice and my friend Andrea. AHHHH! 15 hours of quality scrapping time, no interruptions by husband, kids, animals, housecleaning, etc. I get far more accomplished away from home than I ever do when I try to take an afternoon for myself and scrap! Just far too many distractions that can't be neglected, no matter how hard I try!

I got lucky, usually there are a couple of months, at least, in between my crops but this one is only 2 weeks after the Crop for the Cure that Simply Scrapbooks hosted on the 27th of Sept. It was an enjoyable day of scrapping and spending time with Andrea, whom I hadn’t seen since June. There were hourly giveaways and word games, plus different hourly sales throughout the store. This was the t-shirt they gave each of us, nicely created by the owner's husband!

I managed to do a few pages in the Disney album I’ve been working on for my best pal Hilda! She is so patient, thank God! Found the bone ribbon in the pet section along with some paper with bones that I cut out individually. This was to be a gift for Christmas 2007, keeping my fingers crossed I have it ready for Christmas 2008.

Hilda's girls Kassidy and Elayna are too adorable!!! I was inspired to do this page due to a BINGO game we were playing where one of the squares said to do a layout using 3 different patterened papers. Turns out I had this packet of coordinating papers I had received from them at a crop back in the spring and I think it worked out great! The orange paper has tiny fish desing on it! Kept this layout rather simple as this was just about the girls trying on the Nemo hats, no real journaling to go along with it.

This is a page from Morgan's High school senior year memory album - which is NOT finished yet and she just started college!!! Taken during our trip to California last year. Loved the paper and KNEW I'd use it for her picture as soon as I saw it. If you have a keen site and paint sense I'm sure you'll recognize a paint sample card when you see it on this page! Love collecting a few everytime we go to Home Depot or Loewes - they come in quite handy for scrapping!!!

Listening to some music that Morgan loaded onto her ipod with her itunes card - she has great taste in music - I could listen to these choices all day long!!! How To Save A Life by The Fray just played and now Breathless by The Coors.
Its been a long and busy day of errand running for others and a late night run to White Castles by Morgan for Kyle and Me. Time to call it a night, Tuesday morning is only minutes away. See you soon!

Your scrapbook pages look great. Love your layouts. I am not talented in the scrapbook department at all. I know it takes lots of concentration, maybe that's my problem. I always love to collect paint chips too. Scrapbooking is a great use of them! Hope you have a great week! Twyla
