Scrap Booking

On Tuesday my new friend Guyla (remember I met her through Candy's blog) picked me up and we went to a scrap book night with some of her friends. My friend Kim, who I reconnected with through Guyla, was also there. It was so much fun to sit back, talk, laugh, and still get something accomplished. I didn't scrapbook. I just worked to catch up on my photo journaling in my ordinary plain albums.

Thanks Guyla for including me.



Kim & Rachel. Rachel didn't scrapbook but she brought some knitting/crocheting. She was making headbands.

Guyla worked feverishly on her pages. I admired her creativity. She came very prepared. Her and Kim both had all their supplies and photos packed in a suitcase!!!

Caroline and Kim working away. Caroline has only been married 3 months (I think) so she was working on her honeymoon pictures. I knew Kim from high school/college and she was working on pages for her children.

I wasn't kidding when I said they brought things in suitcases!!! All my albums and photos were packed in the little bitty pink bag!!!! But remember I didn't bring any scrap booking supplies. These two definitely inspired me to get my supplies out and start scrap booking again!!!

I had a great time with these gals!! It was a fine way to end a crazy Tuesday.

Oh, how neat! I am not creative at all. I tried scrapbooking, but I wasn't very good at it. But, then I found digital scrapbooking, and even I can do that!! I'm glad you had fun with your friends!!

Now that's some serious scrapbooking when luggage is needed. They look like they are moving! Ha! I'm glad you had a good time.

I love scrapbooking! I thought about you yesterday, we were in Oklahoma City for the day. I thought "Wow, that would be so neat if I ran into Julie!" Maybe some day we will!!
