Yes... I said STACKS!

Honestly... stacks... well - OK - theoretically it could all be in ONE stack... but I have separated them into categories/layouts?! But still - I do have personal photo's to scrap in the waiting... I would not say so much that I am behind - as the photo's are all from this summer... and actually I was able to do four layouts on Saturday that caught me up to only have the Port Angeles trip left to scrap!

Whew?! I did finally complete the Italy album - I love it! I am so pleased with it! I would post more layouts - but it wouldn't be fair to the owner - as she has not yet seen it herself! Once I get her permission - (and after she has held it in her own hands) I will post some of my fav's! I am STILL waiting to hear from the album company?! I have sent one final e-mail... if I do not hear from them by tomorrow, I will have to talk with my client and let her know that this Custom album (which would have been SO COOL!!!!) is not going to happen, and we will need to purchase a different 12x album to complete the project! I also completed the custom tin order... 4 little mini's... pretty fun project and I think I will be getting more orders for these as Christmas gets closer... it's a great little stocking stuffer or teacher gift or something... you can use it for a brag book for Grandma, an address book for your teen (or yourself?!), or a mini scrapbook...

So - as soon as I was done with the Italy album, I decided to tackle a portion of that "Stack" of mine! As much as I LOVE the colors of the Italy album - honestly - they are all my favorites... Olive Green, Mustard Yellow, Rust Red, Plum, Brown... yummy earthy colors... when I went to grab my own papers and pictures - I went for BRIGHT Turq and lime green! Something loud and fun and whimsical... and I had a blast!!!

This week I am awaiting payment to begin the custom card order... 100 'Blank Inside" cards... I am so excited to get these done... and hopefully once I am done with this order, I will be able to get caught up on my Pt. Angeles Mini Album, and begin work on my nieces' Wedding Album as well! Oh yes - and let's not forget the Christmas Cards!? Yikes?! I think each year my list gets smaller as my business gets busier?! I ordered a new Stampin' Up! stamp set in order to inspire me to make this years cards... can't wait to get it!!!

Dave and I are coming up on 15 years of marriage... we dated for over a year and a half before that... he amazes me... I am blessed... and it really does keep getting better and better! Kaye is doing great - done with Tennis for now... busy with school and her social life... well - as much as a 12 year old can HAVE a social life! Overall we are enjoying Fall and trying to transition into some sort of regular routine and get used to it being darker more often... (the only down side of Autumn?!)

So - what have you all been up to?! What are you scrapping now!? Have you done any altered projects or anything beyond layouts recently?!

Scrap On!

1. So, you are a whopping one month behind?!? In a sick, sick way that makes me smile in a misery-loves-company kind of way. LOL. :)

2. Your layouts are fabulous! Love them.

3. I just finished the year 2004. Spent some time this weekend on a retreat with Corinna...finished about 50 layouts...basically, August-December 2004.

4. Looking forward to see those Italy layouts.

Blank inside...LOL! Glad to hear your business is going well & keeping you busy!

The layouts look great-although Dave looks like a hippie in need of a haircut in one, just the way we like him, lol. :o)

I've been scrapping a little, just pages, hoping to get some more done again soon. I have a nice little stack of layouts that just need journaling on my desk, waiting for my new printer.

I will see you soon...
