Scrapbook Crop... So much Fun!

I had so much fun yesterday! I went to a fundraiser scrapbooking crop for my grandchildren's elementary school. We scrapbooked from 9:00 am to 11:00 pm! I havent done that and just played for a long time! It was so much fun. I am a mom with all married children, so their scrapbooks are 'done' and I am caught up on all my Close to my Heart trips, so I took on a HUGE project. (Wish me luck)

I took 34 years of photos OUT of their little plastic photo pages (since they were distroying the photos as they were before the acid free days) I organized them by the year, and jumped in with both feet and began scrapbooking a 'Family Album' from when we were married in 1975 to Hopefully someday I will be current! It was so much fun to go back through that many years of memories! I have included a few pictures of some of my layouts. The children on these few layouts were my babies, but are now in their 30's and married with their own children. The years have passed but it was so fun to remember the very details of these moments! I am up to 1984! WOOHOOOO I am having a blast! I may never do housework again. Sorry honey....

MEMORIES....what are you doing with yours???

Santa's little elves...busy at work!

What a fun time we had getting a jumpstart on Christmas Card making. We had a full house, all working hard, and having a great time. The Christmas tree was lit, the Christmas music was playing, and yep, we even had the first snowfall to set the mood. Thanks to all who came and played at our Christmas card workshop! Some made 16 while others set out to make 96! I have been asked to have a 'repeat' day! Let me know if you wished you had gotten in on the workshop and would like me to schedule another day to play!
