It was bitterly cold here. Anyone else ready for spring?
I got quite a bit of scrapping done this week. Trying to wrap up J's 8 year album.
Also managed to get 2 page kits done, the first one is "Puerto Rico" and the other "Mexico". And last but not least a CHALLENGE...Scrap a vacation. Use 2 different patterned papers, at least 3 embellishments and 6 photos. Leave a comment with a link to your layout or email me a pic of your layout and I'll post it here. You have until Thursday 2/4/10.

"Lately in our paper, I've been reading about 3 big complaints over and over. Piddly little stuff that makes the complainer seem so self-centered, and petty and ignorant of what is going on in the world. Whining about new city garbage containers, the newpaper not carrying enough TV listings, the dog pound not promoting pet adoptions enough...on and on and on...day after day! I think of what other people in this world who don't have enough to eat, don't have access to health care to save their children, can't even provide their families with clean water to drink...what would they think of us?..."Head over to Clover Lane to read the rest of the story.

I think I fall in the "I forget I have a Cricut!" I know! I wanted one so badly when they first came out and for the longest, didn't even have it set out. Now it sits out in my scrap room but I tend to look through all my embellies and letter stickers before using my Cricut. I am getting better about it though. How about you?

This week's Friday share is a link to a website called CRAFT CRITIQUE . Spot a new product, wondering if it's really what it says it is or if it's not worth the money, hop over to Craft Critique and they might have tried it and shared the pros and cons.
And my share is this layout of me and my boys hiking. The pictures tell some of the story but it's the STORY that is the most important part of the layout. My account of what happened, revisiting a short trail we used to hike when they were little, the boys running ahead and then almost stumbling over a snake, them sticking close after the encounter and us taking a wrong turn. Sigh! A learning experience ;)
products used: Cosmo Cricket Mr. Campy line, Bazzill cardstock and my handy dandy Sharpie ultra fine point.

"What is your scrapbooking resolution for 2010?"
Mine is to do something scrappy at least once a week. I find that I tend to go too long between scrapping sessions...even though I vendor/teach every other week. The photos and memories aren't going to get themselves into the scrapbooks if I don't get to them, will they? It's going to be an anything goes kinda thing...some weeks I may just get 1 card done, others I may churn out a bunch of layouts. I'll share them on Fridays :)
