Whoa! We were on page 4, huh? Not good!

How's fall y'all? Anyone have any big scrappin' plans for the fall?

The overnight crop I'm hosting is THIS weekend... Wow, time flies, I can't believe it's here.

Hi all! I totally forgot I about this forum... Geesh... I've got some plans for scrapping this fall! I've got tons to get done. If I don't get some done, dh will kill me! I haven't scrapped in about two months, but I'm still buying stuff...(I know not good!) I'm taking my mom on a weekend scrapbooking retreat next month so I'm trying to get stuff to do a whole 8X8 AAM album done. I've got the paper, I'm just waiting on an order and all my prints to come in so I can get all my embellishments together. Is anyone else going to the little retreat in Paletine November 10-12?

We're having a crop in Merrillville IN - right over the border from Illinois. Come join us for a weekend of scrapbooking in January.

Hi, all!

How Is everyone? We had a horrible ice storm all day yesterday, followed by about 6 inches of snow. Poor DH still hasn't been able to get in the car for the several inches of ice!

Tis the season I guess!

We're in Indy and we got nothing but very strong winds. Lost power breifly and watched a trampoline blow through the neighborhood.

If you're looking for a get-away in January - check out our crop in Merrillville.

Happy New Year, everyone! I've not been on the site in awhile because of personal things, but I'm back and ready to scrapbook again! If anyone knows of and crops in the area, please let me know. Also, I'd be up for meeting at an Archivers (Orland or Downers Grove are best for me) or Memories and Beyond in DG or even Windy City Scrapbooking in the city... anyone interested?

the Merrillville crop sounds great, but it's too expensive for my budget at the moment. Maybe next time... please keep us updated! :-)

There is a pretty good discount if you can get a group of 4 together. but i understand budgets. I've had to explain to the owens corning basement people for the THIRD time in a month that all plans to finish our basement are on hold for at least a couple of years or until we win the lottery. and since we don't play the lottery........
