Scrapbooking the Weekend Away

Well, I did do a lot of scrapbooking this weekend, but I also did a lot of papercrafting too since January is National Papercrafting Month.

I arrived at The Covered Bridge Inn Thursday afternoon at 1:30 p.m., unpacked everything and settled in for a glorious weekend of scrapbooking, stamping, friends and lots of food.

My first project was to create the Aspen Workshop on the Go projects from the Close To My Heart Fall/Winter Idea Book. I didn't teach this workshop to my scrapbook club and decided that it would make the perfect pages for my trip to The Covered Bridge Inn two years ago. A cold front blew threw that weekend also, but we had tons of ice and lots of snow (for Texas).

Here are the scrapbook pages I AND journaling are included! Yippee!


I made four more pages using the Aspen kit also, but I don't have pictures for you yet.

Next, I created the six scrapbook pages for the Magic Moments Workshop on the Go that I will be teaching this next week. I still need to find some photos to add to those.

In between the fabulous meals that Pat creates for us, I created my Life journal for the Big Picture Scrapbooking class I'm taking, A Life Well Crafted. Then I finished the new My Creations Cube using the Key to my Heart incentive kit that is available through January 31st. I scraplifted the idea from a fellow consultant that posted the idea on our consultant artwork bulletin board. Then today, I created my His Holy Name Challenge notebook I will be using to take notes. I will then create a 6x6 scrapbook page for each attribute of God that is shared during this year long challenge.

Here are my creations...

Ahhhh...I finished this right before I called for my massage...ahhhh.

Now I'm beginning my Project first complete week of taking at least one photo a day and documenting in Close To My Heart's photo storage pages. More to share on that soon.

Have a fabulous evening and restful Sunday, Pamela
