Well, I made it to the end of the 8 week Summer Springboard contest over at Creating Pages. Some weeks were easier than others to complete the challenge, but I had fun scrapping some photos that would otherwise still be in the proverbial "box" of the hard drive on my computer.

The move from the back messy room to the basement scrap area continues, as I organize and delineate storage spots for all my scrap stuff. I am really liking having a table all set up, with my tools all out that can be left till next time, and no one is complaining about the mess or how much room it is all taking up!! LOL! Right now the Easter stamps are all spread out on the table, waiting for the Easter card inspiration to hit!!! I need to to 11 table decoration place cards by Sunday, so I need to get that scrapping mojo into high gear.

Yesterday my friend Pat and I went to Absolutely Everything, my LSS. We drove through a freak April blizzard to get there, when the urge to shop for scrap goodies hits, we don't let anything get in the way, specially a little snow!! Threw the truck into 4 wheel drive and took off!! I got some cute big polka dot Prima flowers in spring colors, think that I will use them on the place cards....but we'll see. Also some 7Gypsies stuff....and a great new book on making Mini Books. Have to post a review once I have a chance to check it out totally. I love little books, and I am hoping it helps me branch out from paper bag books and accordion pocket books with tags...although both very cute and versatile, want to try and broaden my bookmaking repertoire. And I also got a couple cute little A Muse rubber stamps, love those little guys!!! they are so cute, and make adorable cards or embellishments for smaller SB pages!

I'll be posting some of my newer LOs a little later...check back!!!
