Distracted Again!

I'm supposed to be planning, organizing and preparing for a crop I'm going to next week.  Four days of cropping fun.  Last time I went to this crop I got the award for having the most stuff.  And that is because it doesn't matter how much I preplan...I panic pack.  That means I start throwing stuff in my car, boxes, bags, etc. if I still have room thinking I might need it!  This time my goal is to take what I need and to NOT get the award for the most stuff.

BTW, one of my very BFFs says her goal is to have 200 pages preplanned.  CYNDI!!!  Oh my...I'll be lucky to have  25 preplanned...and lucky to get 25 2 page layouts done in 4 days.  I confess...I am a very slow scrapper! :) I was going through some pictures I came across this 8x10 photo of AG (Adorable Grandson) who is actually named David.  He was 6 months round and chubby and cute with that little swirl of hair on his forehead!  It's difficult to believe that it's already been nearly 2 years since this photo was taken.

It just screamed out to me to be scrapped.  Right then and packing and organizing allowed until this photo was scrapped.  So that's what I did and I am so glad I did.  I have this on my kitchen table right now and every time I walk past it I smile.  That little guy really does fill up my heart....

I used Close to My Heart Papers...a few buttons from CTMH and PTI and some red grosgrain ribbon I had on hand.  The scalloped mat was cut on my Silhouette Cameo and the word "CUTE" was also cut using Arial Bold on the Cameo.

A simple layout with the focus on this great photo (which I took, of course!).  I love using enlargements in my scrapbooking...especially when the photo is as cute as this.

And that's it for today...back to packing and planning...although I may reorganize my scrapping table first....LOL!

Happy Crafting!


  1. So cute! Love the layout, it really lets the photo be the center of attention. I've GOT to get packing!! :)

  2. Very cute layout! You again made me laugh- I have only been to a "few" crops- I find I just can't pack everything I think I will need- and I end up taking so much stuff (I am not a pre-planner at all-more of a how I'm feeling at the moment)- and then when I'm there I usually am missing something I need even with all the crap I brought.... :)Amy

  3. I love this page, he's darling and love the 8 x 10, I don't use them enough in my scrapbooks. Hope you have a BLAST at your retreat, I sure do miss those and the more the merrier-those were some of my favorite scrappin' times.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I appreciate the time it took you to leave me a note and I will enjoy reading it. Happy Crafting!
