I have had such a productive month!! I finished off 6 - yes 6! - paper packs at our spring retreat. I made 60 cards and 16 pages! It was so nice to finish some paper packs so I don't feel so guilty about playing with our new papers. And one should NEVER feel guilty about shopping should they? With so much paper in my scrap room to be used, I sometimes do. And I often don't buy because I have so much. This year the plan is use stuff up and finish stuff up!
I'm not really a new years resolution kind of girl, but I do try to set some goals. This year I plan on finishing My youngest son's Eagle Scout album, I hope to finish my 2011 album, and I would like to start sending cards over seas again. I have someone looking for a contact for me now. This is a great way to finish off those paper packs that I have scrapped all I can with the paper, but there is SO much left. Cards are my answer! I make as many as I can with the left over paper. Then it is used, it is useful, and ....I can shop again!!
Oh, I see I got sidetracked again. ha ha The other thing I got done this month was to finally finish my 2010 album. It has been laying open in my scrap room, with just a few pages needed, for almost a year. A few nights ago, I had a free night and decided it was time to get it done! So, a few of the last pages are below.
I also needed to finish the rally pictures from that year. As a rule, I don't take many, but we had been in contact with my cousin, and I needed to tease him about what he was missing. So, when we were in Sturgis, I would take a picture and text it to him right away. He did figure out that we really wished he had come to play with us.
see you soon,
