Where Have I Been???

I have been busy with house and family stuff, and went away for a crafty weekend with DH's cousins, and haven't made it up to my craft room in a looooooong time!

The crafty weekend with the girls was fabulous! DH's cousin, Julie, owns a lake house in Michigan and she rents it out for scrapping retreats. Even though I don't scrap, I went along and made some cards and baby favors for an upcoming family shower. I did get the scrapping bug, as you will see below! I'm inspired after spending the weekend watching them scrap, staying up till all hours of the night and watching girly movies.

I started with Carter's first birthday:

I haven't added the journaling yet, obviously. It took me hours to get this together as it is, and I don't want to screw up the whole thing with poorly thought out writing! The papers are from We R Memory Keepers, White Out Collection. The solids are from my stash - some Bazzill and some no-name from Michael's. The cupcake border is a Martha Stewart Punch - I knew I would use it someday! I know there are a lot of photos on the second page, but I wanted to use them all!

Next is a page for Justin, and maybe some Christmas layouts. I have the scrappy bug now, and am ready to tackle the photo albums!

I have a big project due for a volunteer gig at J's school tomorrow, so I'll be up late tonight finishing that. Then, more crafty time for me :) Thanks for looking!

Better watch out, scrapbooking can be addicting. I can't believe that Carter is 1, I hope that he had a good birthday and good luck with the scrapbooking it is really a lot of fun.
