Oh good. I didn't forget how to scrap.

I've been feeling a little creative lately.  Probably because I organized my scrapbook stuff.  It's been several months since I scrapbooked just for me, so  I just wanted to share a couple of pages that I made over the weekend. 

So, my friend Ashley is just the cutest.  Last winter, while on our church couples retreat, a big group of us played Password (the game where you have to pass the game around and not be the one caught with it when the buzzer goes off).  The following is Ashley's strategy for Password domination: 























And one dedicated to my love of all things crochet. This was simple, but I really like how it turned out.

It was a nice surprise this morning to log in to SIS and see this:


Thanks Angie!!!

And I also played around with a couple of challenges this week. 

Scrapping the Music is highlighting the Golden Girls theme.  One of my very best friends from college was a huge fan of the Golden Girls, so I knew immediately that the page was going to be about him!  Seriously, I cannot hear the theme song without thinking of Jonathan. 

The Creative Type posted a challenge recently, too:  involve newspaper in your layout.  This one actually inspired two layouts, but I'm only finished with the first one, so I'll go ahead and post it today.  I hand cut my title from newspaper.

It feels good to get back into this.  I need vacations more often.  Or snow days.  I'll take snow days.  :)

Oh, speaking of snowdays, we had our first one today.  Would you like to see what qualifies as a snow day around here?


I'm not even kidding.  We are such wimps.  My favorite professor said in her facebook status this morning that if she got out for this kind of snow in Montana, where she grew up, she would only have gone to school in September and May, and would still be in the 8th grade. 

Yes, we are wimps.
