Let's Try This Again...

Grrrrrr.... I typed this great post this morning, expressed myself wonderfully and then clicked the magic button and then....nothing...nothing saved. I lost it all. Not the greatest tragedy but I really liked what I wrote. Oh well. Let's try this again.

Today was President's Day. That meant that my husband was off of work. That meant that my normal routine did not happen today. But, we went bowling! I suggested it. I really wanted to scrap all day long but I knew that that wasn't going to happen. I hadn't been bowling in about a year and I really enjoy it. I know it's not major exercise but at least it's something.

Scrap, scrap, scrap. That's really all I want to do lately. Actually I really want to get my daughter's college album finished! I'm just about finished with year 4 with 1 more year's worth of precious memories to go. I love doing it but I'm getting a bit bored with the color scheme. All of it is basically done in black, white & red, with occasional cream and grey. It's a bit challenging to come up with new variations on the same old theme but I am getting really tired of it. I have to take breaks now and then and do something else for a day or two. But, I would like to have the whole thing completed by mid March as we're driving to Philly to see her and I'd like to bring it with us to give to her - just can't mail a thing like that.

I hope to be going to a scrapping convention in Philly in August sponsored by Creating Keepsakes. My sister lives in the area and I'd love her to go with me. I've been getting lots of great advice on what type of classes to take, etc. I've been wanting to do something with her this summer and this may be a good "something". I've also heard that there may be another scrap something going on in Nashville, TN in May or June. That would be great for my daughter and me - I like doing things with her also and there aren't too many things we have in common anymore. Scrapping is one thing we both really enjoy. I hope to find out more about that soon.

Yay! Off to scrap. I hop I don't lose this post too.
