OK...so a weekend away and I labelled myself...of all things "Scrap Queen." I have always wanted to be cheesy like this. Some part of me wants to "match" my occassions with my clothing. I even co-ordinated my holey soles to match my shirt...as well as my glimmery travel coffee mug. Am I the only one? I was hardly a queen amongst the 25 or so other scrapbooking ladies - I really just wanted the shirt because it was pink and it was $5 at Michaels. I did get 20 (1 sided) pages done over the course of the weekend on Ashers scrapbook and I am so happy with it. It took me a while to get into the swing of things as it has been over a year since I even touched my scrapbook supplies. But, the hummm of the Crickets, the slicing of photos and the smell of the Cricut mat glue got me motivated in no time!
The regular scrapbook ladies that I go with were there too....we had to joke from afar this year but still loved seeing them and catching up at meal times. Jen and Dani "won" by staying up the latest both nights. (I can't even compete in an all-nighter). BUT...our van won the race home...remember that for April ladies ;) (And everyone thought I was the slow driver!!)
One of my favorite layouts from the weekend as it made me think of my bestest friend Ginette who will be at the next scrapbooking retreat in April...because GUESS WHAT? SHE IS MOVING BACK from New Brunswick...well back to Calgary but that is still much closer and I am so stinkin' excited about that!! So, next retreat is the first weekend in April 2011 and I am already looking forward to it...
I love capturing, sharing and documenting my memories and our lives.
