Morning Saturday Scrappers!

Oh - I COULD JUST SHOOT my DH - he woke up at 4:30 to go potty and guess who's been awake ever since??!!

So, I'm here. Finished catching up online and headed now into scrap mode.

My goal - it seems to change every week - is to work on some of the following:
o catch up Project Life - I have 3 weeks to print
o work on school collages to prep for retreat work
o finish page foundations prepared at a March retreat

I have TWO retreats in October and I feel VERY compelled to finish the March work before I go. It's a sickness, I tell ya'!

So, jammies and coffee in hand, who's with me??!!

Good morning, Penny! I'm enjoying my coffee and some peace this morning. My DD had her first slumber party last night, and thankfully, they are still slumbering.

I plan to scrap some after they leave this morning. Sounds like you have a great plan, I hope you can check many things off your scrappy list today.

ETA... That was short-lived, they're awake! Off to make some breakfast.

I got my coffee...not sure when I'll get up to the scrap table. My people are all still sleeping (well, except the dog!) so I might catch up on some Netflix TV (Tudors...second time thru) while they snore on!

I have 4 or 5 "page kits" ready for if/when I do head up there; a trip to Disney, Hollywood, CA visit with friends/family. I think I finished the first of the bulldog photos yesterday.

Hi ladies. I am here with you. I finished my 5k run and breakfast and it is time to scrap. I uploaded two layouts to the gallery and my goal today is get working on my One Little Word album. I am taking the online class and although I have followed the prompts I have everything in a pile. My goal is to get rid of those piles and get things into the album.

Hi everyone. I have been scrapping since 6:30 this morning and keep planning to through the morning until I leave to run errands. I finished a 2 page wedding layout from my brother-in-laws wedding and am not working on finishing half started layouts from classes I've taken (adding photos and putting all together).

Slow getting started.....but I'm with you. My,1st project is to cut some letters to put on t-shirts. I have vinyl backed paper that I'm going to try to cut with Cricut. Any suggestions what settings to try?

I'm here. DS came by the house on his way to work this morning and the dogs lost their mind barking. I think tomorrow, on his day off, I will stop by his house and wake him up at 7 a.m.

DH has a golf tournament to play in this afternoon. It's his 35 High School reunion today and they are starting with golf (and probably beer ) and then a dinner tonight (with more beer wink:.) It will be a lot of fun - last time I enjoyed it more than he did. My 30 year is tonight too but we're not going to that one.:

I'm trying to get pics printed and matched with kits for the retreat in October.

Its a rainy saturday here.....DH will be home a week from tomorrow and I haven't accomplished nearly what I set out to...but I'm ok with that!!!! and I'm anxious for him to come home!!

I have to go to wallyworld to get a few things...but then I'm back here and changing into comfy clothes and hope to not leave the house for the rest of the weekend. Lots of digital pics to sort through and organize. I've got a subscription to pixels2pages and would like to do a few tutorials there and actually get some pages done!! I still have a silhoutte class to do and would like to create some things with the cameo this weekend.

Hope everyone has a great day!!!!!

Good morning!

No scrapping will be happening here until later this evening. Today we are going to spend the day with my in-laws. I am also getting a hair cut - it is much needed!!

I wished I lived close enough to Branson (or anywhere) that holds retreats.

I did just find out about a group in Tuscon....4 hours away. I may have to bite the bullet and sign up for one of their events next year.

Rainy here too.

A high school reunion sounds fine. Key word: sounds.

I'm going to try. We are both sick in today so there won't be any fun activities outside the house. Hopefully Riley will like chilling on the couch with Daddy today so I can finish up some pages started at last weekends crop.

4 hours is nothing! I have flown from St.Louis to Seattle for a CKC weekend Anything to be with my peeps! (Penny we need to talk January, registration is open for Scrapology in St. Louis)

The reunion WILL be fun. The group that I know will be there are about 25 of DH friends that we still see regularly. The rest of them, meh....say hi and move on! Now my class? Heck, I didn't hang with them then, I certainly don't now.

There are some fun things I'm going to do in my city today, so I'll be scrapping them after that. Also, I need to put the finishing touches on two other layouts, and may try a challenge on another board.

DH and DS are out putting up tree stands. (It's that time of year, and I'm about to be a hunting widow again -- bow hunting goes from October through the first week of January.) DD has buzzed to all the houses on the block to see who's home this morning.

And I'm about to start cutting some butterflies. I'm not scrapping, but at least I'm playing. Need about 15 beautiful blue butterflies for tables at an event tomorrow, so I think some glitter mist, bling, and glitter is in order, too. I have a couple of hours before we're off to afternoon games where DD will be cheering.

Penny, at our house, it's the dogs who wake me up, but that didn't happen this morning until nearly 6:30. Felt like a vacation!

I might be able to fit in some scrapping. We are planning to go to a sculpture garden this afternoon but the weather is iffy so we'll see.

**Scoobers*** I do solemnly swear to pop those letters in an envelope today!

Have a great Saturday!

Scoobers, my 30 is next year. But the thought does not thrill me.

I used to do this too, back when I had a group of scrapping buddies to go with me. Then we got spoiled...there was LOTS to do within an easy drive of the DC metro area, and we started staying closer to home. Then my scrapping buddies slowly but surely started giving up scrapping and moved on to other crafts. And now, I've moved away to scrappers wasteland.

Maybe you guys can let me know where YOU'RE headed next and maybe I'll meet you there and make some new friends!

I don't want to die!!!!! I guess I'll have to wait and see.

Yea - I got my letters cut out on the vinyl....almost cut easier than paper.

Now I think I'll finally stop procrastinating and start on my Christmas cards after lunch

Good Afternoon,

I wish I was scrapping but not until later if I don't crash.. my kiddos woke me up at 4am this morning--one is teething and may be having ear infection but not sure on that and other just wanted to cuddle so we did on the couch watching tv until about 6am then we got ready to go to community yard sale this morning... got awesome deals but best one of all is a holder someone made that I think would be perfect to hold my sizzix dies. so will try that tonight to see if it'll work and post picture of it tomorrow. I also have list of things I want to work on I really need to think of things to make for christmas but nothing yet. lol

Wow, y'all have been productive!

One layout just isn't coming together for me, not sure why. Maybe I'm trying to use the wrong paper?
Moving to another, should have it finished later today.

Need to figure out dinner first.

One more layout completed and ready to be put into album! Pinseeker11, at least you have the pics for the years you are missing. I am missing several months from 2009 and the pics were suppose to be backed up to a disk but in our move last summer and couple boxes were lost and guess what was in one of those boxes? Yes my pics from 2009! But I have enough to work with and will journal about the ones I am missing.

Impressive list of finished projects, all! DD and I cut about 1 1/2 dozen butterflies from various Cricut cartridges this morning, and she started finishing them. Planning to finish those up tomorrow morning. JV football game this afternoon, which we won by a landslide, and then dinner and shopping with grandma, which takes a while.

I ended up finishing 5 doubles and have another one on the table. YDS came in from night out and we ended up on couch chatting. My mojo is gone now and I am feeling my 4:30 wake up.

I'll be back at it tomorrow.

Pinseeker, crazy on missing some chunks. I hate it when that happens!

Fun day all! Hasta manana!

And now, 9pm here on the West Coast, I'm only STARTING my Saturday scrapping after the East Coasters have gone to bed. Perhaps they'll be waking up soon after I finish tonight.

Am several hours late with scrapping because I was very productive this afternoon, clearing away piles of rubble that had accumulated on various horizontal surfaces.
