Trying to pack for my scrapping weekend!~

And I'm stressing about it!

I'm not good at making "power layouts"...ya know, preplanned and ready to go?

So I've put together about 20 envelopes of pictures and picked some basic background papers for them and thats it! I think I'm going to have to pack every embellishment I own..LOL

I can't afford to buy it all there, and I can't bring it all...but at the same time, I don't want to come home with a bunch of "half done" layouts!

It is this weekend and I'm starting to get worried here...hehehe

I hate packing my stuff up to go scrap somewhere! It's so hard to bring everything and you hate to buy something when you have it sitting at home! I hope you get it figured out...Have fun this weekend!

That's why I love online crops more than IRL crops! I don't like packing up my stuff. I always forget something I need, or I bring a car load.

But, the retreat you are going to looks like such a BLAST!!!!! I am so jealous! I bet you'll have a great time! I'd just bring the basics and papers you know you'll need, and I'm sure the others girls wouldn't mind sharing, if you ran into something you forgot!

I know a few of the girls going, and the gals that run it are my friends too...so if I forget something I know I'll probably be fairly well covered. I'm more worried about embellishments and stuff like that. I have a tool bag that stays packed, and I packed up my papers/pictures.

All my embellishments (not stickers or cardstock type things) are in containers by color...I'm thinking about just packing all 12 of the containers in my car, and then if I need something..I can just go out to my car. Fibers and ribbons hang in my room though, and I don't think I'll be able to take those with me without a lot of work.

sigh..I know I'm going to forget something really important....but I totally getting excited!

Good Luck!!! I've thought about doing crops, getting out there and meeting fellow scrappers but the more I think about it I don't want to have to deal with should I take this or this, will I need this or that? It would be too much work deciding on what I could take, lol.

Oooh, that would be difficult. You are going to have so much fun when you get there though.
