This weekend my husband and I went away to his families cabin to get a little R & R and for me to do a little scrapbooking. Usually I haul enough stuff to fill the car, because I don't know what I will be in the mood to scrap. But this time I planned ahead.... I knew I would be working on the album of me and my husband during the period of our life when we dated. For this project I had picked out a series of SEI papers. I had purchased a few packs of the matching papers, the 1 hour album kit, and pulled some of my matching cardstocks, flowers, buttons, ribbons, etc. I also narrowed down the photos to about 6-12 per event that I thought I would want to scrap. I also decided I would limit my self to ONE 2 page spread per event, so I can give a breif overview of this time. If I feel after I scrap the album that there are things I want to do more pages for I will make some mini albums. Any way... long story short... by packing LESS, I manged to forget a few important things... my paper trimmer, a cutting matte, and my bin with brads, inkpads, stickels, and other emblishments... I manged to use an exacto kife and cutting board to get my cutting done, and I was just a bit more creative with what emblishments I had to use. Here is one page I made over the weekend... I manged to get 9 done!
