Layouts From Our Girls Scrapbook Weekend

We had a fabulous time on our scrapbook weekend this past weekend!  By "Girls" Weekend I mean my best friend Karen and myself.  And by Weekend, I mean Friday afternoon around 2:00 - Sunday afternoon around 2:00.  We stay in a Massachusetts Hotel Suite 1/2 way between NH and RI.  Our Suite is perfect, two seperate bedrooms with private baths on either side and a large living room with a small dinette type kitchen in the center. We bring our own food (there is a full frig & stove), so we don't have to leave if we don't want too.  We move the furniture around a bit and put the desks in the center of the living room.  What also makes our trip complete is a trip down to Right At Home Scrapbooking to get caught up on the latest and greatest supplies that have come out in the past year. 
In addition to scrapbooking like crazy, we have a great time chit chatting without interruptions, no one to cater to but ourselves, watching chick flicks while we scrapbook and of course yummy food & lots of coffee!!!   We have both been scrapbooking since about 2000/2001 and we have had this type of scrapbooking trip at least once every year since then.  We have scrapbooked in Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Jersey.  We used to go to organized crops (we even had our own a few times) but since we have had children, we find that getting a suite and doing our own thing works much better.  The only schedule we are on is our own instead of having to following the crop's schedule of events. 

Here are some of the layouts from this past weekend.  I got 25 complete pages down, 2010 8x8 Christmas album completed and a whole bunch of empty pages I added photographs.  I am happy with the amount of stuff I got done and a little closer to being caught up in my 2012 albums.


Thanks for looking!

Lots and Lots of Pregnancy & Baby Scrapbooking

Some of these pages I made to catch up on Joey's baby book, some were for a neighbor's new baby girl and the other 's were for our cousin's new baby boy!  I am hoping by the end of the weekend I will be completely caught up on Joey's baby scrapbooks.  My pregnancy one is done now too!  The last three pregnancy scrapbook layouts, I am hoping to get up onto Ebay at some point.   Thanks for looking!
