Do you have any weekend scrapbooking plans?
Are you scrapping, shopping, cleaning, Peaing, or planning?

I am planning on trying to do a lot of scrapbooking! We don't have to go anywhere or see anyone, so hoping I can get up and get down to it. I think I am going to try to take part in the Frosty Festivities event I read about on Jennifer's blog.

See things that shine on Pinterest, Instagram, and YouTube.

get up and get down to it

Love that phrase!

I have just had a STACK of photos printed so I'm hoping to do some scrapping. And the weather forecast is for rain so I won't feel too guilty if I just stay warm and cosy inside.

I really want to make something Christmassy - maybe decorations or cards or something. Just need some ideas

I'm going to my LSS 2nd anniversary crop tomorrow. It's 12 hours and I'm hoping to get my Christmas cards done and start my December Dailyish album.

If I get just the cards done I'll call the day a victory. My last crop was 6 hours I left with 1 layout. Not because I was slow, but because I spent most the time chatting.

Will I ever get to Buckethead?!

I need to get off Two Peas and Pinterest and write my final papers for my classes so I can scrapbook! I've really been wanting to scrapbook lately, and procrastinating is not helping.

Well, I'm hoping to scrap some. I did my DD cover last night, just need to glue down a couple more things. Then I have to do my inside cover page, (Kind of like a this book belongs to ... sort of thing.) Wish I had the rest of my 2Peas order. It says complete but there is no shipping info.

I also have a couple of older pages I just want to get finished and off the table.

Dd is at a party and I can't pick her up until midnight so I'm hoping to scrap from the time I drop her unil I pick her up. Tomorrow is a basketball tournament and archery so not sure how much I'll get done in the daytime but I'll be by Archiver's so I may do some shopping!

Me me me me me!

I've been studying my butt off all day so I can justify taking the night off. I've totally earned it!

I'll be working on a mini album from a birthday party, maybe some LOs for my annual album, and maybe some Christmas cards.

I also JUST discovered the Glitter Girl videos today, so I will probably watch some of those and, of course, do some Peaing.

I have a new order of supplies coming my way that I hoped would get here today, but maybe it will be here tomorrow.

First I need to go to the grocery store so I can make dinner!

Wow, I've been at it for over an hour, and so far all I've managed to do is:

- plan out the photos for each page of a 10 page mini album
- cut out and ink up the background of two pages of that mini album with a Glitter Girl video playing in the background.

I forgot how slowly I scrap!

We have the first fire of the season in the fireplace and my scrap table is right across from it. Oh my goodness, I'm in heaven. I love hearing the crackling logs and seeing that warm glow. It just makes my home feel all cozy.

I've got 3 layouts done tonight.

I have a wrestling tournament all day tomorrow for my son, but I'm crossing my fingers for some scrapping tomorrow night.

Don't cry because its over...smile because it happened

Why, YES!, I am a princess.

I met up with a friend and made nine LOs tonight. I was happy. I brought two collections I kept passing over, Fancy Pants "it's the little things" and BoBunny "Gabrielle" to make myself use them. What was left I gave to my friend and she made a couple LOs. I was pleased. Two more collections-GONE! j

DH is deer hunting this weekend, so it's going out with themgirls and scrapping all weekend for me. I made a layout this afternoon and will have time to scrap a tomorrow night and Sunday afternoon. I probably need to give some serious thought to the cover for my DD album this weekend. Other than thatmI'll be working own layouts for Shimelle's Scrapbok Remix class.

Thursday night, a friend of the family who'll be moving soon gave me 3 different Recollections cube organizers she won't have room for and won't be needing anymore. I put them on my work table, and have been working on getting my scrap/papercraft supplies out of the plastic storage bin and baskets they were stored in, and into the organizers. Last night I went and bought a fourth organizer cube, and some Iris boxes to hold the rest of my supplies. So, this weekend I'll be finishing up with that project, and also re-organizing some of my sewing stuff too. (My craft room is mostly for scrapping and sewing).

Glad to hear so many Peas are getting scrappy this weekend! I just finished my second layout. Had a brief nap yesterday evening and it gave me enough energy to scrap until 3:30 am! Love that!

I'm done organizing the scrap/papercraft stuff. Once I finish with the rest of the craft and sewing organizing I have to do this weekend, I'll be starting work on a card for my Christmas secret sister swap partner, to pack with her goodies. I haven't made a card in a while, so I'm looking forward to it.
