My crafty weekend

I spent this past weekend at my first scrapbooking event with some girl friends and I had a blast!  Unfortunately, I ended the weekend with a 24 hour flu bug, I spent Monday recovering and re-gaining my energy and I spent yesterday catching up on housework.  Now its Wednesday and the week is already half over!  Back to this weekend though...

I have been scrapbooking since I was in middle school but I have never scrapbooked with anyone else.  This weekend was the first time that I was able to see how other people use their pictures to tell their story.  I was surrounded by women who love to scrapbook and as I walked into the room that we would be using for the weekend, I found myself very intimidated by the talent that was in the room!  As our group of 6 started to get set up, I realized that not only was there a lot of talent in that room, there was a lot of talent sitting with me at that table!  There were scrapbooks of families, children, birthdays and vacations everywhere I looked.  As I settled in, I was reminded that everyone has their own style and there isn't a right or wrong way to do it.  Over the weekend, I learned a few new techniques and how to use some new tools and I picked up a really cute new album for my baby boy!


















I finished 10 pages and got a really good start on my baby's first year!  Here are a few of the pages that I put together.




















































I had a great time and look forward to being able to do something like it again!
