My poor lonely scrapbook "stuff" has been packed away in storage for a couple of months due to trying to sell our house. I normally have it in our "office". But, that has been turned into an office/music room leaving zero room for scrap supplies.
I went over to the storage place on Thursday to pick up my measly..eh, hem.. I mean ginormous load of stuff and thought I got everything. After dropping Munchkin off on Friday morning for school I headed for the Scrap House and set up all my stuff. It wasn't until then that I realized I had not cutting tools or adhesive. I was missing one small box of stuff. Back to storage I went. When we packed up the locker we put my craft supplies near the door so I could get to them if need be. Well, this small box was packed in a big box near the back. 15 boxes later I found what I was looking for. All I can say is thank goodness it is not as hot as it was last August! It was hot in there but not terrible.
After lunch with Munchkin I ran back home to make some Cracker Candy. I was planning on making Snickery Squares but can't find Dulce De Leche. If you see some let me know because I still want to make them!
Bobby came home early so I could take off. When I got to the my exit I realized I left my box of ribbons in the desk in the entry. Yeah...not off to a good start.
I was still the first one to the retreat. One of my friends had been there to set up her stuff and move the tables around but had to go home. Bobby said he would meet me in Rivergate with my box so I headed back out....again.
When was the last time you went to the movies with a friend? I am not talking the free movies with the kids either. In those you have to worry about noise level, popcorn spillage and 13 trips to the bathroom. I have been racking my brains trying to remember if I have been on a girls night..and I just remembered....
Before I had Little Man, Bobby and I paid a babysitter and went to Opry Mills. We met up with a group of friends and I went with the girls to see The Longest Yard. (Apparently I did have Little Man as it came out in 2005 and he was born in 2004). Bobby went with the guys to see something different. It was kind of a weird girls night because the guys were there and aside from watching the movie we didn't really get to hang out. All that to say Angela and I took Saturday afternoon to go see Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2. We both walked out thinking it was really cute...and that we were glad we didn't drag the guys to it. Even though we know they would have sat through it with us it was more fun to just go with a girlfriend.
After the movie, back to the ScrapHouse we went. I think we stayed up until 2 that morning working on our books. We watched a couple more chick flicks and listened to a whole lotta music.
All in all I think I got about 56 pages done.
It was so fun to go and actually scrapbook. I did feel a little uncreative during much of the weekend. I am guessing that is because it has been awhile since I put my creative hat on. Even though I felt a little rusty I still feel pretty good about most of my pages. And here are a few of my favorites:
