Scrapbook Sunday



Yeah!!! I've moved on.......done with Disney for a while. I'm on to CindyLou's...I know this will sound crazy to a lot of you, but I'm anal about all of my scrapbooks matching (shocker!!!) so they will look nice when they are on the bookshelves in our office. Here are some completed ones that I have on the shelves.



I figured out about how many I needed to finish the kids up to when they graduate from high school. Then I got busy buying them up on ebay.....because of course they have discontinued the albums I started with from Creative Memories. And of course the pink I am using for CindyLou is "rare" and makes them even harder to come by!! The navy blue are for T. and the black are for Cubby...So I found enough and then got an extra one just in case. Then I got busy trying to figure out how many page protectors and pages I would need too....and of course the treatgirl is not so good at math, so this took me a while.....and my secret agent Creative Memories rep helped me place my order just in the nick of time before these were all discontinued too. Wheh!!! Here they all are perched above the cabinets in my craft room.




Anywhoo......I have just completed Cindylou's page for her first day of fifth grade....and presently she is in 8th grade...so I'm a good 3 1/2 years behind...yikes!!!!! I CAN'T WAIT until I am up to date!!!!!!!!!!!



I did a little stitching and tearing....



A few embellishments, staples and a bit of journaling and the page is complete.



Here are a few pictures I have laid out for my next page....Chip took CindyLou to her first Pitt footbal game. I have been BUSY all week.......and trying to finish up a scarf that I started knitting last fall, so I haven't made much progress. Also, I can't seem to locate her ticket stub for the game and it's making me MAD!!! I am usually very good about keeping all of those safe....but about this time she started her own memory box up in her room and she may have snitched it....gotta check there. Hope your Sunday is wonderful....have a great week!

Stitching and tearing (paper) or tearing (crying)?? They're all growing up so fast that it makes me want to cry sometimes!! Your organization is killing me too!

The whole outfit you have--from books to pages to shelves--is fantastic.

i love that you do scrapbooks for your kids. what great mementos to pass along so they remember what went on. wouldn't it have been great to have one from when you were grown up? in my dreams...
