Too many pots on the fire...

Long time no post. It's a busy time of year and I can't seem to get any one thing done. I have so many projects half-way done though. I've been working on some more pages for my memory album. This time pages of my grandparents. I'm trying to get Halloween pages done for my kids' albums. How many different pages can you make of almost the same set of photos? I'm also doing some REAL scrapbooking -- by that I mean of the paper variety -- for my daughter's 10-year-old mini album. Busy with real life too, new school years at school and work... just too many projects underway. When did life get so busy?

While I've got you here, let me tell you April's crop schedule:

April 14th, Tuesday: Beginner Scrap (any page theme is ok, mini albums are ok, no new lesson or challenge, but will repeat the Patterned Paper lesson for those who have not yet participated.)

April 21st, Tuesday: Advanced Scrappers (Challenge will be to make a "shaped" page. I'll be sending you the page of examples soon.)

April 28th, Tuesday: Open Scrap (Patterned paper lesson for those who have not yet participated.)


Limit: 8 people per crop.

A word about May's challenge for Advanced Scrappers. One of our fellow scrappers in the advanced crop group thought up a wonderful challenge, but it may take some time to get the photos ready so I want to let you know about it as early as possible. Mother's Day being in May, what better time to make a page of yourself and your daughter(s)! But the challenge is this: The photos of you and your daughter have to be of both of you around the same age. By that I mean you'll be needing an older photo of yourself. For example, if you have a photo of yourself at age 3 then scrap it with a photo of your daughter at age 3. If you have two daughters then you'll be needing 3 photos! What a fun challenge. I'm definitely going to be making a page too.
