One for WM[squared]

This forced me to scan all those photos from my trip to California with Grandma when I was in my teens. Probably haven’t scrapped it all enough yet but I did get started on it..

One for WM[squared] Designs

I would love to say that Wendy at WM[squared] is a pleasure to guest CT with. I love having a few days notice to be able to come up with ideas for a layout.

She makes REALLY GREAT templates, too!

I went into the archives for a photo from my Masters Graduation with my parents and grandparents. I’m sure I’m inspired by Elysse’s impending graduation ; )

One for WM[squared]

Wendy of WM[squared] really makes the cutest themed kits so when I saw that the theme this week was baseball, I wasn’t sure what I would do. I can do baseball, football, soccer, lacrosse just fine but I had nothing for baseball. So I turned to my Digisisters for help! No problem finding baseball photos to scrap there!

Tax season and scrapbooking…. a fun combination

This time of year is always busy for me with tax season. This is the first year in five years that I haven’t taken on the weekend job I usually do from February to April. I just knew with all the different things going on at work this year, all the new responsibilities with the restaurant and the bar open that I would NOT have been a person I wanted to live with if I was working all day and all weekend. I asked Tommy at the time and he liked the idea. I think he likes it even more now. Last week I cooked a home cooked meal one night, the rest it was pizza or leftovers. This week will be better. And then next week it’s all over.

Now on to the scrapbooking part of it… The first week of the month is always fun with BYOC. This month I am guesting again for WM[squared] Designs over at Scrap Orchard and I am also guesting for Sugarplum Paperie at Sweet Shoppe Designs. These on top of my normal gigs AND the fact that I’m working on the May issue of Scrap n Art magazine made for a crazy busy week and weekend.

When I saw that Wendy’s newest kit was about Colorado, I was thrilled! Just perfect to continue with the scrapping of our Colorado trip last March.
