Scrapbooking SOS - is all about why I scrapbook. I scrap for me, my sanity and
for my creativity. Of course, my family benefits from it too.

Back from the weekend retreat

It was a great time and I enjoyed quite a few laughs...

I have to say the best incident was a delay in supper being served and it sparked a scene from the Snickers commercial.

Great Bunch of Ladies to scrap with!

Over all I came home with 23 pages...
SO that works out to be...
* 9 pages completely finish just need to slide them into the correct albums.
* 11 pages that just need the date added or just a touch of something.
BUT mainly just the correct date...since when I printed them they only had the month and/or year.
* 3 pages started and a bunch of photos cropped and ready to go!

I had brought a bunch of Christmas pictures to scrap and a pile of cards with ideas...BUT just needed more time!!!!!!

This was the 1st time I attended a crop/retreat with nothing ready to go...
What I mean is I usually pull all the papers to match the photos and group them together and even sometimes include those embellishments too!
Which means a bunch of extra paper bins loaded up...

Here is some of what I got done on Friday!

A Random Fun Page to get me going...
Just need to add the date...

On to a page that needed to done to finish off our moving road trip to Newfoundland.
Title made from Scraps out of Jennifer's Scrap Bin...She does have a good stash.
