My mom and I did a scrapbook retreat this past weekend, just the two of us. It was a lot of fun and highly productive!
I started and finished an album of our honeymoon on St. John, USVI. Yes, were married and honeymooned in 2011. I know I'm behind, which is why I need more scrapbook retreats!
Being a loyal Creative Memories customer for a very long time, I'm just now exploring scrapbooking outside of CM - mainly because of Project Life. In so doing, I'm finding papers and embellishments I never knew were out there. And they're all so very cute! It's truly ridiculous just how big scrapbooking has become - and how many of the products I love. Ha!
And so I put together a honeymoon album that used a lot of beach papers. It came together really well. I'm still waiting on a CM order, though, for more page inserts before I can put the album together...in the album.
As some of you may now, Creative Memories has declared bankruptcy and the future of the company is unknown. I placed a large order as soon as I heard - to get enough albums and pages for a few more trips. But, if they close and stay closed, I'll have to look for other options with which to do my scrapbooking. Eek!
It was a fun, girly weekend. Just what I needed!
