Scraphappy

As you can see, I got a few pages done this weekend. I was pretty proud of myself. I wasn't as social as I would've liked to be, but I was churning out pages. For some reason I had the mojo. I also realized I REALLY want either a cricut or a slice. I must get and electronic die cutter. They are so nice. My friend had her cricut out and another gal brought the jukebox for it which was really nice. I even did a 2 page LO, which is a total rarity for me, the photo of it did turn out. I feel weird sometimes when I get positve feedback on my stuff. I scraplift a lot of it and I feel like I do the same layout over and over. I should just enjoy it. I find I scrap totally different than most of my friends. I don't know if it is because they started with the Creative Memories system or what. One of them is breaking out of it a little, but they always ask me how I can scrap just one photo. My answer, I don't feel the need to scrap 5 photos that are very similar. I like to take the best one or maybe two, unless they tell a story. I don't feel the need to do two page layouts either. I acutally hate doing them because I feel the need to mirror them perfectly and it drives me buggy. The one photo question sometimes bothers me, like I'm not purveying the memory or something. I don't ask why they feel the need to scrap 5 of the same get everybody together and smile portraits of a specific event on the same page. I don't care that they do, that is their style, those are the things they want to remember. I just don't question their methods. I just prefer to scrap snapshots and in the moment things.

Great job! I love it. Pretty girl is my fave. I have a cricut and I love it. I don't know how I did without it. It is totally worth the investment for sure! I do tons of one page lo's, I love them and they usually have only 1 picture on them. They make a statement if you ask me. And you are right, who cares how you do it? It's for YOU! I get to go on my scrappy weekend in a few weeks. We all scrap so diff. too and that's what makes it fun. We all pull from each other.

I love your LOs. It's always so cool seeing what other people do. I was on a scrapbooking weekend myself but got NOTHING done. I didn't plan/pack well and left my photos at home - 3 hours away. Oh well, I watched lots of movies and relaxed!

Also, just wanted to make sure you received my email listing your ornament swap partner's information. If you did not please check your spam filter - some have been getting stuck in there. If you still don't have it please email me.

Thanks!

These are sooooo cool! I used to say I would get into scrapbooking when I had kids. But when I had kids, I had no time for it. I'm impressed with you!!

I don't scrap like most of my friends either, especially now that a lot of them are going digital. I can't do it, I like paper too much.

I love your "Pile of Fun" layout. I have a layout up on my latest post...
