Scrapping with the girls

I had a GREAT time last Saturday scrapping with some of my buddies! We used to get together very often, but life kind of caught up with us all and we just couldn't get it scheduled. We have decided that the time has come to start making a point of meeting once a month at least. I think that we all missed the fun of seeing each other work and just talking about everything with each other.

I managed to get about 7 pages finished, most of them of Kari and her track team. I'm kind of out of practice with packing for a crop, so I ended up starting layouts at the crop and finishing them at home, but I did get them all done!

and my favorite....

I can't wait until we get together again in October!

My Latest

I'm not getting much time to scrapbook since school started back. It seems like I spend a lot of time grading papers, planning lessons, and doing other odds and ends connected to school.

I've had a 2 page spread laying on my scrap table for weeks now and it just isn't going anywhere, so today I decided to take a break from that one and work on something else. I visited Scrappin Mojo and decided to try my hand at one of the new September challenges. The sketch challenge seemed easiest: go somewhere and find a sketch, use it as inspiration. I LOVE Page Maps so I decided to look there. I found one from September 2009 that would work perfectly with a couple of photos of my poor son during his BETA Club initiation last year. I really like the way it turned out.
