dirt bikin' mini album








So this is what I did on Friday night when I had the girls over to scrapbook! It was so much fun. We ate, talked, stamped and scrapbooked...I think the last girls left at 2am...the time went by way too quickly. But it was great. I find that when I get together with people to scrapbook I need to work on a project rather than just doing random pages...it's a lot easier for me to plan and that way I don't have to do much thinking...I can just sit and talk and work away without having to be too too creative. Hehe! It's just what works for me. And I never ever do journaling when I'm with people...I'm one of those people that talks a lot, and I tend to write what I'm saying....I've totally screwed up pages before because I've written down what I was saying out loud rather than what I was thinking in my head. Oops! So that's kind of my "process" when I scrapbook with friends. So anyways, I wanted to do something fun and easy. It was 5pm and the girls were coming over at 6 so I quickly pulled this stuff together to a mini album of Gray. These are pictures of him in Vegas just a couple weeks ago...so cool. I am so proud of my man and so happy for him that he has a hobby that he loves. As long as he doesn't come home with broken bones or a screwed up face, I'm totally supportive of his dirt-biking! haha! (What a nice wife I am, hey??) Anyways, we made these frame albums using Heidi Swapp frame kits at the Urban Scrapbook convention last year, so that's where this idea came from. Very fast and easy....and so boyish! It was super fun to do a "boy" project...we all know that I am a major "girly" scrapbooker, so this was a nice change for me. Gray liked it, too!

Here is a picture of the tables all set up and ready to go before everyone got here...and of course, I took no pictures WHILE we were scrapbooking. I just totally forgot and the time went by too quickly, as always! I put kraft paper over the tables so we could write and stamp right on the tables without having to worry about making a mess. Worked out well.



This has been yet another busy week. Gabby had her shots yesterday and has been pretty miserable the past 24 hours. I've been totally unproductive around the house, etc, and I'm just trying to remind myself that it is ok to not "accomplish" anything some days. I have a big to-do list that didn't get touched today...but it is ok. And Payton is sick...she woke up this morning with a fever and a cough so I'm just trying to take care of my girls. Whew! I am tired....and of course all this is going on while Gray is working nights! Ah, life...


Both the girls are sleeping now, cross your fingers that we have a good night!!


UPDATED: I have no idea why my photos aren't showing up on this post...they were yesterday! I know blogger's been a bit finicky the past couple days, so I'll blame it on them! Hehe!
