I SURVIVED SCRAP FROM YOUR STASH
I made it clear through the 2 weeks without shopping and I scrapped 196 layouts. Whew!!!!!!! I couldn't believe that I could scrap that many layouts.
Congratulations are in order for Joyce and Susan. Joyce scrapped 338 layouts and Susan scrapped 319 layouts. Way to go, Ladies!!!!!!
I was able to get the photos of our trip we took for our 25th Anniversary in 1998. I finished 45 layouts of our trip to Wildlife Safari. Now I just need to get all the photos of our Anniversary party and get them scrapped. I usually just keep my layouts in decade albums........I think I will make a special album for our 25th Anniversary.
It may sound strange but we celebrated our 32nd Anniversary last year at Wildlife Safari. Yes, it is a favorite place for us to visit. It's less than 20 miles from our home. We buy a annual pass that lets us go through the park as many times as we want throughout the year without paying any admission fees.
I was also able to get the 2003 Bear Fest in Grants Pass, Oregon photos scrapped. With these photos I was able to use a lot of items that I had received in a Teddy Bear Swap.
It is a good feeling to be able to use some of the items that you have received in swaps with other scrapbookers. I also used a lot of my supplies with this SFYS. Don't worry I won't run out any time in the future.
All I could think of Sunday that cash registers from around America were going.........Ching, Ching with all the SFYS Ladies out buying after the 2 weeks of NO SHOPPING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I know I did a little shopping. Not too much.........only around $25. Mostly what I bought was 12 x 12" page protectors and Xyron refills..............and cardstock. I was running out of blues..........so I really needed it.
