Up to date

I know, it's been a while since I posted anything, but it's been busy. We've been gone, we've been home, we've had house guests, we've been throwing birthday parties...Wow.

So I'll start at the beginning. Last Tuesday, Chad had to travel to St. Louis for work. The cheaper flights were out of Cleveland, so I drove him to the airport and stayed with his parents in Cleveland area until it was time to pick him up Thursday night. This was great for multiple reasons, including but not limited to: the house was clean when I left so I didn't have to mess it up and then clean it, I don't like staying home alone, I enjoy visiting with Chad's family, and I got to spend Wednesday at the scrapbook store finishing Megan's first year album while I had a free babysitter...

Here's what I got done:

This is the first page at the album. I don't think I've ever gotten so much done in one day. The night before I decided what pictures I wanted to use and what topics I wanted to do. Then, I went through a few of my favorite magazines and marked a few ideas that I could copy using those pictures. The page above is a definite scraplift.

It also helped to be at a store because I was able to find supplies that worked.

I finished the four above pages all on Wednesday. The page below I finished (with consultation from Sherry) during Megan's nap on Thursday.

In case anyone is counting, this is the first month since January that I've hit my goal of 10 pages for the month.

Great pages! I especially love the first page. Do you have a simple way to print them all that small? Or did you just cut pictures?
