Hey everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. It was pretty much gloomy and rainy here, so getting DH out on the motorcycle just didn't happen. We had a very lazy day around our house, which I am sure I will regret in a couple days. I did do some scrap booking. I am working on my 2009 album. I am anxious to get it done. I get closer and closer to being fairly caught up. I keep thinking, if I am caught up I can take more time and be more creative with my pages and paper. Maybe get some more card making done. Of course, if I didn't sit around and watch movies on weekends I could probably do that too! ha ha
Any way, this weekend I spent a lot of time thinking about our veterans and so many people who have lost their lives for our country. I wonder, have you scrapped September 11, 2001 yet? I have not. I have clippings and articles, I have deeply personal journaling, but I can't make myself do it yet. I try, I get everything out, and I look at it all and I touch it all, and it all goes right back in the box. And I didn't lose anyone personally. Someday I will be able to do these pages, but for now, they are put away.
I just want to take a moment to remember the people who have given their lives, the wives who have sacrificed their peace of mind and lost their family members. Without them, I could not do what I do. I could not dither away my weekends and blog what ever I may be thinking. I thank God and you every day for the freedoms I have. Thank you , thank you, thank you, And God bless and protect the men and women who are out there now fighting for the life that I am blessed enough to enjoy. connie

So, for National Scrap booking Day, I always host a full 16 hour event. 8AM to 12 midnight. And, I set goals. When I first started to do this event, I tried teaching a class or a technique, but everyone really just wanted to work on their own thing, so it became a great crop where we all get something (or a lot of things) done. I had 2 mini albums I was determined to finish. One of them did get finished. This is the mini album that CTMH put a video out on in March. I challenged everyone to have one done by April. I said I would have mine done. Well, you know, life has a way of getting in the way of plans. So, I made mine in May.
The numbers from the CTMH (?) animal crackers kit. Oh, and the banners from our dimensional elements. I love these things! Can't wait to use more.
So, now you have seen mine, I challenge you to make one of your own! Let me know how it turns out! maybe even share it online with me. but most of all - HAVE FUN SCRAPPIN' - C
