Sundale Scrapbooking Retreat!

Okay, I am stressing & really excited about Mosaic tonight I know that once this weekend is over I can look forward to this....

This is the Sundale recreation property 45 minutes outside of Regina.  We have rented the entire place for 4 nights of pure scrapbooking bliss!!!  There are 5 of us going out so it should be a great weekend!  Will post more pics after we get back!!! 

Come back Friday for our next Use it or Lose it challenge

Layout 17

Our use it or lose challenge was delayed a couple of weeks which has caused some serious blog neglect!  That and our very dreary weather!!  It has done nothing but rain all week (we even had a bit of snow).  We had some sun Friday and Saturday but it was colder out!  So my layout is inspired by my need for sun and heat!!!

I`m pretty pumped for this weekend.  I was asked to help out for Mosaic (our local cultural festival) taking pictures for the Romanian Pavillion.  They have a backdrop of Castle Dracula and costumes for people to dress up in.  It should be a lot of fun!!!

I hope the sun is shining wherever you are!!!

Fall Fun

This was another page map from Scrapbooker's Etc...I am so sad they have announced their next issue will be their last.  I hope it's not a sign of things to come! 

This was our 2010 trip to the pumpkin was a complete disaster.  I'm happy I have any pictures at all.  My sister threw her back out as soon as we got there, so my DH & I had all 6 kids while her husband helped her to the car.  The girls were of course upset their Mom was hurt so they didn't want to co-operate.  Will had a really weird rash above his eye that took until Christmas to clear up (we still don't know what it was) so I didn't get very many pics of him.  Josh wasn't feeling co-operative either and I don't know where Nate was or what he was doing since I really didn't end up with any pics of him.  That all being said I love this layout so I guess it was worth all the chaos!

Have a great weekend and Happy Mother`s Day!!!

Use it or Lose it Weddings!

This challenge really got me off my butt to make progress on my sister's wedding album.  I had put a lot of layouts together but hadn't done any of the embellishing.  This one so far is my favorite.  The whole album is being done in Miracle.  Not only did my little sister get married but I this was also my first wedding shot as she trusted me with the photography.  There are lots of things I wish I would have done differently but also a lot of things I was really happy with.  It was a learning experience for sure!

Please join us at use it or lose and play along!
