You girls are just the friendliest lot ever! I love your chatter but I can't chatter and scrap and live this crazy busy life all at once as much as I'd like! I decided after I found you and the other online communities in January (after digi scrapping for many years) to stick to two and do the challenges each month so that I am at least scrapbooking and I have a monthly deadline and a reward! Both awesome for me. I have since 4 pm today (it's now 1 am) scrapped 6 of the 7 July challenges, I did one last weekend. All the photos I scrapped were all taken in the last 8 days! They start at my fav once yearly scrapping retreat where I spent the entire weekend just sorting, upzipping and putting in a 'find-able place' all the digi kits I've bought this year! (Good grief I've got to stop doing that! I've zillions already!) I didn't even finish sorting them all! On Monday my eldest son finally started a new great job (yah) and then on Wednesday I was recalled for a 'routine' mammogram which didn't turn out to be routine after all. I had 3 biopsies and have to wait a week to see if they are benign...or not. Thursday I pretended Wednesday hadn't existed and went on the planned snow trip which was just what I needed! I had so much fun! I don't know how you all live with that stuff but I had fun playing for one day! Built my very first snowman at 54 yrs old! LOL Also tobogganed for the first time ever! Such fun! Then yesterday I went to the funeral of a good 89 yr old friend, then work, then my volunteer job, then work again and then doctors, etc. Today I hit a wall. What a week. Visited a friend who has cancer, strangely enough that's the only person I wanted to see. Bought myself a 'cheering up ice cream cone' on the way home (had to pass the new ice cream shop and I hadn't tried it yet!) Then went to bed and have spent the last 9 hours straight scrapbooking! It's the most pages I've ever done in that time! So that was my week! All scrapbooked! Thanks for reading/listening. I don't often comment, not much time left but I love reading and looking at all your amazing layouts. Have a great weekend!
