    One thing I would love to scrapbook today is…a real photo on real paper! Currently travelling and with zero stash makes for a pretty uncrafty person, but I am doing my best with limited supplies.

    I just want to make a dent in the boxs of photos back from when I had to print allllll the photos to see them. 1000s of them still unscrapped. A nice side benefit is that looking at photos of my teens makes me remember, when they are beng…well, TEENS, how sweet they were when little. It may just extend their lives a little because some days I could quite happily wring their necks! :)

    Mary Anne

    By the way, the two peas code works for us internationals too, at least in part- it will give you $5 off your shipping charges. Every little bit helps, right?! :)

    We went to the park today and had a “picnic” (which consisted of muffins we bought on the way to the park ad juice we brought from home) according to my 3 y.o’s specifications. It was such a beautiful day, we had a great time. So I definitely want to scrapbook that today.

    i want to scrap my sons 2nd birthday.

  157. Jill Says:

    One of the reasons I love to do online crops with challenges is that it makes me move outside my box! So when I sit down to scrap, I pull out those tricky photos…the ones that have been sitting in my box for which I had no ideas. When I get new photos, I go through them and think about the lay out I am going to do. I pull out the paper, sketch a thought and file them in my kit box but the leftovers are my biggest challenge. So today, I am going to scrap some of my “orphans”. Thanks for the inspiration!

  158. Bev Says:

    I want to start working on a small album of my daughter’s first “Father / Daughter Dance”.

  159. AllisonLP Says:

    One thing I want to scrapbook today, are some of the majestic animals we saw at the park last week. I don’t usually scrapbook animals… wonder if I have any paper that would work well? I guess I’ll find out today! TFS Shimelle, I’m having an awesome time!

  160. Tammy D Says:

And would so love to win some “stash”! I’ve started in mixed media and have very little in the way of “stash” to play with!

  166. LucyF Says:

    I’m fast approaching a deadline for a scrapbook project I’m in the middle of! I have 15 more double page LOs to complete in 10 days so I’d like to say that I intend to get several more of those completed today – but as I’m being dragged out to see “The Smurfs” by 2 young friends (age 4 & 6!) this afternoon, I will amend my plans to getting at least one page done today and at least 3 over the weekend! I will get there with the project, but I will also remind myself that I must plan more carefully in future to give myself a little more time for the next big project!!
