Scrapbooking Fever!

My best bud, Katy, plans a scrapbooking weekend every year at her grandparents' cabin. And it is coming up in just a couple of weeks! Yay! But in all the excitement that comes along with this, also comes a sinking feeling of where to begin...again.

Everyone who knows me knows that I love to scrapbook. Sadly, though, I haven't done it for TWO years! (Last year I couldn't go to the cabin because we were headed to Hawaii the very next weekend, and I couldn't bear to leave the boys). So I've begun to drag out all my stuff, trying to get organized. I took out all of the paper that is outdated or that I know I'll never use, and I found A LOT of things that people have bought me for Christmas that I forgot I even had, so that's been fun. Then yesterday I took out my albums to find out where I left off. And I was shocked to find that I am only through May of 2006! That isn't even to Coop's 1st birthday! So now I feel whiney and sad because I've got so much work to do, but the really sad thing is that I'm afraid if I get those pictures developed from 2006 and 2007, I won't remember where we were or what we were doing! (My memory is fading, folks - sad but true :)

So I've decided that I'll do Coop's 1st birthday pictures first, then I'm going to do this entire year - starting with Hunter's 6th birthday party. If I have time (I just might because I plan to stay up VERY late), I'll go back and do the rest. That's the plan people. Let's just hope I can get those creative juices flowing and bust out some good pages. I'm determined to get caught up! I can't wait for scrapbooking weekend!

I'm super excited too. I didn't get to go last year because I was working at the winery. I tend to put off scrapbooking unless I'm going somewhere like that too, so I really need to catch up!! It's gonna be a lot of fun!
