Scrapbook Retreat

Haven't blogged in awhile....just so busy with the kids, volunteering at school, etc., etc.

Went to a weekend scrapbooking retreat in OK last weekend. I had such a great time! I shocked myself by completing a whopping 49 pages!! That is an amazingly high number of pages for me since I'm such a slow scrapper. I took only school event photos, along with the Becky Higgins school kits, and was able to get ALL of the past school years caught up for all three of the girls! Once I put the pages in the albums with all the memorabilia for each year, I have already filled two albums for both Emily and Allyson. It appears that I'll have at least 3 school albums for each child by the time they graduate from high school....wow!

I feel like I've found my scrapping "mojo" again, and can't wait to do a few more pages this week.

Other news around here:

Emily had another band chair test and got first chair for the concert next month. She is super excited.

Claire was awarded the lead role in her second grade musical. Another super excited kiddo.

Trying to figure out how to split myself in half as both the band concert and musical are on the same night/same time! :-(

Glad you had fun at the retreat! Wish I could have made it to see everyone.

Thanks for stopping and commenting on my blog. Here's your teaser....I've been taking a class with DD on speaking, reading and writing Chinese and I've been practicing with my calligraphy pens. The date you want to look at my blog for my first set is Nov. 6.
I think you'll like it.

I'm not doing freebies for awhile until I find a file sharing service that won't give my entire account away to the first person who asks.
I have some Chinese calligraphy that I fancied up with my antique papers that I'd like to send you.
It might be a long time before I can get my freebies back up and I don't want you to have to wait that long.
I think I can email zip files...I'll ask DH.
