Hi Henri, I was only thinking about you yesterday, wondering how your travels were going!!!!
Well last night I re-did a layout for the second time, as I still wasn't happy with it....I think I am happy with it now....but went to bed thinking..oh I should have thought to use such and such.....
I will hang it up for a while to look at before it goes into an album, and see how I feel about it.
Danielle, I love your cards....

We have company until Tuesday and then I may try to jump back into a little paper-scissors scrapping for my mother's cookbook for Christmas.

Good morning Happy Sunday - starting the laundry that needs to be done after our trip. I am doing a load of towels from home here and I only have a small bit from the trip.

Then some serious organizing and cleaning since my Mom and my cousin might come to visit!

I managed to do my April MIR layout this morning and I will try to continue with my Skye layouts (at least Day 1 is already done).

Danielle I love your latest cards!

I missed NSD too. We have company here from Mississippi that we brought home from the cruise with us. We left yesterday morning to go to the Villages to take the tour on the trolley and hang out for dinner. Got home around 10:00 so didn't even thing about scrapbooking. Now that is shocking!

yea but don't have many pic. how would you do a layout about yourself.




Do a page about a childhood memory that you loved.. do you have a fav doll? or bike or tv programs? Lots of people do their fav programs from childhood..,you do not need any pics of you. There are all the different television shows from when kids were little.. Just print out on your printer your favorite tv show. There are lots of screen shots.. The beginning of it or pics of t he actors or lots of muppet pics out there from back in the day or Captain Kanga roo or sesame street or romper room . Tell why you loved the show .
You can do this with anything..food..clothes.. toys... books.. just google has a image search try it

If I don't know what to scrapbook. I think about layouts to make and then once I get photos for that layout just drop them right on it.

I packed a very tinny bit of my scrapbook stuff to bring over to my bf's house tonight and for this weekend. I was hoping to get more challenges done this week but didn't.




Hi Jenny, That is another good thing to scrap when you have no pics ready

Got back in the country last night - so good to be home. I will try to go back and check what I missed but no promises.

We brought another couple home with us - someone we met on the cruise around Norway last year. We are having a blast with them - I think they are going to stay until Tuesday.

However, will try to keep up from this point.

Oh - taught myself to digi scrap on the cruise and got nearly 400 pages done on sea days. I love it - will do all my travel stuff digi now but will use paper and trimmer for family things and the cookbook I'm working on.




OH Henri.. WHOOHOO so glad you are home again Congrats on getting so many digi pages done while you were at sea
That sounds great to have friends from the cruise home with you You enjoy this time with them

Well this weekend, I didn't get a whole lot of scrapbooking done.

Busy weekend for me, and sad I didn't get any of the NSD challenges done on here. I will save them and work on them at some point.

This week I am hoping to work on some of the challenges for May, NSD Challenges and my other challenges on scrapjazz.

Last Night I was able to finish my layout I couldn't finish over the weekend cause I didn't have ALL my cartridges when I brought stuff over to my boyfriends house. And was able to make 4 cards last night.

This week I will be finishing up my sisters thank you cards. I can bring them to work and glue them together cause they are all set to go basically. Everything is cut out just needs to be glued.

At some point this month before her baby shower make the food cards. I am thinking they wont take to long. I can cut it all out and put them together at work

On top of all that I have my challenges to do.

I have been so busy with work, the house, and kids activities. this time of year gets crazy.

I feel like this year I have a nice stash of cards. My step mom said she would look and buy them off me if she needs them. I need to figure out a way to store them.

Maybe the photo card bins would work the best. Or get the plastic bins from the dollar store.

How does everyone store their cards?

Okay - will start posting my digi layouts I did on the ship. I was just learning so they are rather amateurish but I'm learning! There is a LOT of journaling and I probably won't be particularly interesting to very many so my feelings will not be hurt at all if you don't read it. I started writing it a few days before we left on the cruise just so we will remember all that we did getting ready for the cruise!

Good morning!

Yes Linda my family is all in Canada except for one cousin that lives down London way (a good 6 hours away from me).

I hope everyone is well! Sounds like you had a good crop Linda!
I am hoping to do a couple more Skye layouts this weekend.

Finished polishing 3 more journaling pages to post next. Then it starts with ports and photos. Now I'm wondering why I did all this journaling in the front!

Got Dead Sea layouts finished last night (only 4 pages) and today my focus is on Israel. So much research still to do for it. But, hopefully will finish it in the next few days. After that, there isn't too much left of this last cruise to scrap - then I can concentrate on the paper/trimmer cookbook I'm doing for my mom and starting digitally scrapping on Transylvania from the fall of 2013 and working through 2014 and that world cruise.

Can't print the 2015 until everything else is done because I have no idea what book number it is and won't know until I work my way through the pages. I put the book number on the spines to keep them in order so I can't print the ones almost completely yet. I know that Transylvania will start book 27 but there will be 6-8 books before the one I'm working on now is ready to print so I'm guessing it will be book 33-35 starting the 2015 World Cruise.

Here are the last 3 journaling pages at the front of World Cruise 2015:

Henri, wow, what a fabulous holiday you have had and the digital layouts are wonderful. I have to go to work shortly, but fully intend to come back and read all your stories.
Danielle, that is so exciting to be starting on the plans for your house, and have a safe trip back with your Mum.
I posted the layout I re-did (for the second time) into my gallery, and I wanted to show you gals, but I can't figure out how to add it into this thread....

good afternoon guys i know I need to read posts. The last couple days have been so hard for Ang & us. She had to pick up remains she is devastated (we are too) She was here last night. I have been working on my page to keep from thinking about it.
The page I am lifting has ribbons & I could not find all of my pink ribbons. Then I remembered I had put them in a bin of stuff I had bought or had to use on the sweet pink rose dance page I started
I need reprints lots of times cause they are turning colors or darkening but I am going to use the original & swap out the pic later. It is easy to do I need to see what I want for the dance page 1st so I am working on the dance page right now

Taking a break. I got 14 pages of Israel done and emotions are high. It was so life-changing for me. Been doing a lot of research on places and also pulling scriptures to go with them - Israel is turning out to be a very personal part of the scrapbook for me. I knew it would be but didn't realize how much of myself I would be putting into it - if that makes sense.

I just finished Garden of Gethsemane and moving on to the Upper Room where the Last Supper was held.

When we got to Jerusalem I handed Bill my camera and told him he had to take all the pictures - I wanted to experience Israel without having to think about taking pictures. He followed me around like paparazzi taking pictures.

I felt funny being in pictures of these Holy sites and had planned to delete the ones with me in them but now I' glad I have them. It helps me remember how I felt.

I felt like I did a few things this week. I did more organizing this week then anything.

Monday is going to be a busy day for me at my scrap table. As I need to get the food cards all cut and glued together for my sisters baby shower. And also make her the mom ribbon and also make the monkey heads for all the cloths pins for the cloths pin game. I have lots to do and not enough time.

Hello! I'm a newbie here!
I have been organizing like crazy all week!
I decided to make up a scrapbook with all of our old family photos that are sitting in a box still in the frames. I have my faves up on the wall. I think it will be a fun way to keep those memories alive!
I'm still trying to decide what size pages I want to put them on...

Hi Ladies, tonight I started on a mini canvas on an easel for my scrap room. The background is still drying, so I will do some more on it tomorrow after work.
I really wish I could get focused on doing some layouts though, I seem to always be getting side-tracked with other things.
Henri I am really enjoying all your travel layouts, thanks for sharing!

Thank you. I'm trying to limit my posts to about 4 a day because so many of them have so much journaling. I don't want to overwhelm anyone.

I have Tahiti ready to post and then Bore Bora - just need to do final proofing and tweaking of Bore Bora. Then I post the pages here and download them to Shutterfly.

Morning, Henri Jean says she is having trouble posting to this thread and she is not ignoring all the questions. I can see all of your layouts Henri Jean but if you are posting comments to this site, nothing has shown up since the 10th. Only see layouts which are gorgeous!!! Looks like another fun adventure!!

Maybe that it is all it is. Yesterday I posted layouts to another board, then tried here - could do it, waited 5 minutes - tried again. Shut the computer down -came back, still wouldn't post. Several hours later, after coming back repeatedly and trying to post the layouts yesterday, it finally worked.

Then this morning I had to come back several times just to post a comment.

Anxious to see if this goes the first time. I now copy paste my comments to this thread so if it doesn't post, I can easily try again later.

I have commented since the 10th - don't know where those went.

Odd thing is - it is only this thread I can't get to post. Maybe it is just a delay and I'm not being patient enough!

Okay - fingers crossed that this goes through the first time.

Last Night I was able to finish my layout I couldn't finish over the weekend cause I didn't have ALL my cartridges when I brought stuff over to my boyfriends house. And was able to make 4 cards last night.

This week I will be finishing up my sisters thank you cards. I can bring them to work and glue them together cause they are all set to go basically. Everything is cut out just needs to be glued.

At some point this month before her baby shower make the food cards. I am thinking they wont take to long. I can cut it all out and put them together at work

On top of all that I have my challenges to do.




Hi Jenny I am glad that you were able to get some pages done I hope that you do get to finish your sisters card & work on the other shower stuff

I feel like this year I have a nice stash of cards. My step mom said she would look and buy them off me if she needs them. I need to figure out a way to store them.

Maybe the photo card bins would work the best. Or get the plastic bins from the dollar store.

How does everyone store their cards?




I am glad that you finally have a nice stash of cards I normally have a stash I used to store them in these large cardboard boxes that were for cards & had dividers inside that I bought at Target
I used to sell them. I used to use individual ziplock bag for each card. we bought the bags from a wholesaler but I think you can find individual packs of different size ziplock type bags at craft stores or on line Mostly I sold the larger ones

Okay - will start posting my digi layouts I did on the ship. I was just learning so they are rather amateurish but I'm learning! There is a LOT of journaling and I probably won't be particularly interesting to very many so my feelings will not be hurt at all if you don't read it. I started writing it a few days before we left on the cruise just so we will remember all that we did getting ready for the cruise!

Finished polishing 3 more journaling pages to post next. Then it starts with ports and photos. Now I'm wondering why I did all this journaling in the front!

Got Dead Sea layouts finished last night (only 4 pages) and today my focus is on Israel. So much research still to do for it. But, hopefully will finish it in the next few days. After that, there isn't too much left of this last cruise to scrap - then I can concentrate on the paper/trimmer cookbook I'm doing for my mom and starting digitally scrapping on Transylvania from the fall of 2013 and working through 2014 and that world cruise.

Can't print the 2015 until everything else is done because I have no idea what book number it is and won't know until I work my way through the pages. I put the book number on the spines to keep them in order so I can't print the ones almost completely yet. I know that Transylvania will start book 27 but there will be 6-8 books before the one I'm working on now is ready to print so I'm guessing it will be book 33-35 starting the 2015 World Cruise.

Here are the last 3 journaling pages at the front of World Cruise 2015:

World Cruise Page 7 By Henri Jean

World Cruise Page 8 By Henri Jean

World Cruise Page 9 By Henri Jean







I can't believe that you do not have much to scrap on this cruise:) how different it is from all your other trips I can see why you love the digi scrapping for these 3 more awesome pages & journaling I left love on all of them Dave & I & the kids all love trivia we always watch Jeopary & millionaire:)

Henri, wow, what a fabulous holiday you have had and the digital layouts are wonderful. I have to go to work shortly, but fully intend to come back and read all your stories.
Danielle, that is so exciting to be starting on the plans for your house, and have a safe trip back with your Mum.
I posted the layout I re-did (for the second time) into my gallery, and I wanted to show you gals, but I can't figure out how to add it into this thread....





I am sorry that I wasn't here to help you add a layout to this thread but I see that you figured it out in a later post

Taking a break. I got 14 pages of Israel done and emotions are high. It was so life-changing for me. Been doing a lot of research on places and also pulling scriptures to go with them - Israel is turning out to be a very personal part of the scrapbook for me. I knew it would be but didn't realize how much of myself I would be putting into it - if that makes sense.

I just finished Garden of Gethsemane and moving on to the Upper Room where the Last Supper was held.

When we got to Jerusalem I handed Bill my camera and told him he had to take all the pictures - I wanted to experience Israel without having to think about taking pictures. He followed me around like paparazzi taking pictures.

I felt funny being in pictures of these Holy sites and had planned to delete the ones with me in them but now I' glad I have them. It helps me remember how I felt.






I am glad you are taking a break since your emotions are high. It was good that you had him take the pics for you .

Hello! I'm a newbie here!
I have been organizing like crazy all week!
I decided to make up a scrapbook with all of our old family photos that are sitting in a box still in the frames. I have my faves up on the wall. I think it will be a fun way to keep those memories alive!
I'm still trying to decide what size pages I want to put them on...



Welcome to SB. Hope you can find lots of ideas to use for those old family photos.

I'm anxious to see your heritage page when you're finished, Linda. You always do such wonderful pages. Since I know you've wanted to work on the heritage for quite some time, I'm sure it will turn out even more "wonderfuller" :>)
