and I'm not done with it yet.
I've had such a productive weekend. I have almost finished all my Tracy Kyle class layouts, with pictures! I cleaned up all the stuff still sitting in a box from the best retreat ever and sorted through a bunch of other supplies and purged a few things. And I kind of made Belgium waffles and bacon for Father's Day breakfast.
I am making an 8 1/2 x 11 album for Shaun, mostly grad stuff. It will be the first totally themed album, with pictures in it that I have ever done, with the exception of my Sally album. It will be my first 8 1/2 x 11 also. I am using a layout from an SS magazine as my inspiration, that's what that picture is all about.
The Emily layout is for my other scrapbooking club, the 2 pagers. I have the second page but it doesn't have journaling or pictures on it. All papers and stamps are BRAND SPANKIN' NEW STAMPIN' UP! I have used the whole pack of double-sided designer series paper for this club. I don't know what I was thinking. I'm really trying to let go and share my stuff, but it's so hard because I am a hoarder by nature. I even let Emily use my American Craft large black alpha stickers for the envelope for her Father's Day card and a whole piece of new pp for the envelope. And then Kerry tossed the envelope in recycling. I am not going to fish it out of there. I am not going to.
Emily's been scanning away with the new scanner, it's so fast compared to the old one. I haven't had time to play with it yet. But I am enjoying this beautifuld wide monitor. Everything looks better, brighter, bigger, and smoother. I feel bad for the old monitor, it treated us well, lasting as long as it did. Good-bye old friend, I think it held my gaze like no other for about 8 years. It showed me things I had never seen before and now it's gone. sniff sniff
It's after 1 pm., it must be lunch time! I better stake my claim on the pasta salad I made last night or else I won't get any.
