Scrappin' Weekend

Today, I got together with my sister, my mom, and my friend Kristy for a day of scrapbooking. Scrapbooking is one of those hobbies that requires a huge chunk of time (at least for me!) so we all get together periodically to spend the day together sharing supplies and ideas (not to mention lots of food!). I used to think scrapbooking was silly until my friend Tamara introduced me to this vast, endless world of possibilities. Now, I am hooked! Right now I am working on a scrapbook for Eli's foster mother as her final gift when we go to back to Guatemala to bring Eli home. Here are some pics from our gathering today.

Do you think we have enough alphabet sets???? For you non-scrapbookers, each case is a separate alphabet font for cutting out letters. Yes, it is a sickness. Ha!

My mom working diligently! She is a standing scrapbooker!

My goofy sister

My friend, Kristy. We also share an office. Yes, we spend a lot of time together!

Looking for inspiration.

My nephew, budding scrapper???

A few pages from the scrapbook for Little Pea's foster mom.

I'm so jealous. I wish I would have been able to be there. The pages you did are awesome, as always. What a wonderful gift!

Emily said...

I LOVE it! I think it's the best gift to give a FM, too...

I used to scrapbook, I had one child then, now with three......I blog!

Great idea for his foster Mom. She will love it.

Sounds like it was fun.

Your foster mother will love this gift, we made one for Sam's FM and she still treasures it today.

Beth said...

The pages you shared are beautiful, she will love that keepsake.

I think I am inspired!

It looks like you all had a lot of fun... what a great way to spend a weekend day!

I love scrapbooking! We have some places around here to go on Friday nights from whenever until Midnight. It's always so much more fun to do with people! Great job!
