Wow.. I actually scrapped my own pictures!

Last night Megan and I went to our new Wednesday night activity. Our LSS "She Runs With Scissors" has a late night crop n' shop every Wednesday night. We have a lot of fun and seem to get a lot done. It is also a nice night away from the husband and kids.

I've been so bogged down with swaps, that I usually work on those while I'm there. Last night I got a swap done plus I actually scrapped a page for me.. well for the boys. When we came home I stayed up until 3am finishing a similar page so that each boy could have one in their books.

I feel so accomplished. I have realized that I need to slow down on doing the swapping and start getting some of my pictures on the pages that I have swapped as well as do some of my own pages!

I am still having so much fun learning and playing and I'm so glad that I finally gave in to the scrapbooking craze!

Here are the pages I did last night. The camping themed paper came from a Secret Sister Swap that I participated in on SplitCoastStampers. The kits were designed to make 8x8 pages, but I decided to stretch it out and make 12x12 pages instead. Since the papers were designed to only make pages for one album - I had to improvise for the title - and on the second one I cut "Camping" out on the Cricut using the Plantin' Schoolbook cartridge.

I'm really happy with how they turned out - and I still have lots of paper to use from the SS kit.
