Good morning, ladies! I didn't realize this was starting this morning. When I read that I was excited, because I think I might actually have time to do a layout tonight. But then I remembered that I left all my paper at my mom's house after I went to that crop last weekend! Crap! So I guess I am not scrapbooking without paper. lol. Maybe I can convince DH to go get it for me...
Can't wait to see what you all come up with!
Today is a bit crazy but I plan on using this VC to finish my advent/Christmas cards. Looks like starting next week I'm going to have some built in scrapbooking time- I got a job that I wanted but didn't apply for because I couldn't work the hours needed. Well, the board rejected the other applications that came in and hired me, application unseen. Granted, I've been volunteering in the classroom... but I'm still reeling that I was hired application unseen. I'm a little shocked that they hired me... not asked if I'd like it. LOL I guess they figured I should get paid for what I was volunteering anyways.
So starting Monday, I'm a kindergarten aide. I'm in my daughter's classroom. She thinks that's awesome. My DH is rearranging his schedule so he can be home with the youngest two. I will be gone the entire school day, but my job ends two hours before school does, so I can head off to the teacher's lounge and scrap, waiting for my oldest 2 to finish school. Our gas bill will be cut in half and I'll cover the van payment (that we upped to the max to try and pay off ASAP because our congregation said they will cut hubby's wages next year). I also have unlimited (unpaid) off days, so if hubby has a funeral or a hospital call, or it's his month to do Bible Study at the nursing home, I can stay home with the youngest.
So.... that's my news. Well that and next Wednesday we find out if we get a call to a better able to support us congregation. Doesn't it figure that I finally get another job (or should I say a job lands in my lap)... get some hope in this dire situation... and now everything is being thrown at us at once? I can't help but laugh about it. The school is the ONLY thing I'd miss if we left. The people who matter to us already said they'd visit. We'll be too far away for the school.
Good morning all! So glad we are having a crop! I am off work today and we have plans to take Kayley to a local children's museum. I am hoping to get some scrapping done later! I also want to begin working on my Christmas cards!
kel-02, hope DH will go get your paper for you!
Michelle, good luck with the new job!

Hi girls!!!! I'm heading out of town, hate that I'm missing this. Have fun!
Can someone who's planning on participating all four days start a thread with the challenge links? That will need to be updated as more challenges are posted. Thanks!

Hey everyone! I might try to get a few digital layouts done this evening and tomorrow. Then on Saturday I will be at a Scrapbook Convention all day. I plan on only taking the stuff to do my Christmas cards, it will be the best way to get a bunch of them done! I will try to share them on Sunday. I can't wait to see everyone's work!
Hi ladies! I won't be participating, but just thought I'd check in. I have a busy few days ahead of me. Later this afternoon we have Miles' 2 year well child check up. After that Miles and I are going to get the groceries we need because we're having his birthday party on Saturday. Friday evening we have a wedding. So...no time for scrapping. I hope you all have fun and get lots done!
Michelle, congratulations on the job! It sounds wonderful!
Katie, your photos are gorgeous!!!
Wooohooo at having the day off with DH today and he's fine with me having a bit of fun scrapping most of the day! Unfortunately, I just learned my gma had a heart attack with an unknown status at this time, so I will probably cut the day short to go see her. I'm waiting for DH to get home. Maybe I can play more when I come back. We'll see. Please keep her in your prayers. Thanks!

hey ladies! im so exicted we are having a crop! i have to wait until DH gets paid (he should tomorrow) so that i can get adhesive! i somehow didnt buy the right tape runner for my adhesive refills the first time, so ive been just using the refills as the runner, and yeah well, not a good idea. im hoping to pick up some new supplies as well, and get my son caught up, so i can start scrapping my daughter full on! i only have a few pages of her and shes already 7 months! yikes!
Hey ladies! I'm excited for this, it'll give me a much needed push to get active again on the board! I am doing a card set for a party later this month that I have to get done, so I'm going to try and get that done and some pages! I just got the use of my laptop back again today, so I'm super excited I don't even have to beg dh to use his computer!
