So excited!

I decided to surprize my mom and have her scrapbook finished when she leaves on her next vacation in November. She went last year and took 8 disposable cameras worth of pictures, and made disks of the pictures requesting I scrap them. I said sure. She is expecting the album for xmas- but itll be early so she can show everyone this time around that she actually does use the pictures! lol ALSO my next surprize for her (and the thing Im MOST excited about) is that I have decided to do it paper! Dont get me wrong- I LOVE digital scrapbooking- however, its just not the same. I switched after I had Autumn because clean up, and take out etc etc was such a pain in the butt to have to do ALL the time.... BUT I talked to my sister- and Im getting a corner in her house!!! I will go visit a couple times a week for a couple hours- childless! I can relax, scrap, and enjoy some time. I MISS PAPER SCRAPPING and I have decided, that in time, I will make room for it in my office! (a no child zone!)

I am so excited and cant wait to get started! I bought some new papers and embelishments today! AND went through all the stuff thats been packed in my closet (it builds up faster then you realize! lol)

hehe- my biggest trick is that a good friend of mine works at wally-world! She has a 10% discount I can use if I go on her lunch breaks *evil grin* and the one store I frequent is having a BIG sale with TONS of stuff on sale for 50 cents to a buck right now!!! Made it soo hard to remember to JUST buy what I NEEDED for moms book lol it adds up fast!

That's awesome, I'm sure she'll just love it, and congrats on the paper scrapping space - it's the same reason I gave up paper (although I don't think I could go back now if I tried, especially since I sold all my stuff!)
