Scrappin' 4 a Cure

Oh. My. Gosh! Scrapbooking is the greatest thing ever! And you are now hearing from the newest addict in the scrapbooking world! This weekend I attended Scrappin' 4 a Cure, a scrapbooking event to help raise money for cancer research. It was fun, fun, fun! It is so relaxing and stress free I didn't want it to end. You get to visit with friends, eat great food and work on different projects. This was my first attempt at scrapbooking and I am so sorry I haven't started it before. I almost love it more than going to garage sales! Now that's serious! And to top it off, I won the grand prize drawing! I couldn't hardly believe it! It's this really cool tote bag to carry supplies in. I love it so much I might use it as a purse too!

My two first ever pages! One from Emma's birthday party...

And one from our trip to the CdLS Conference in Chicago last summer...

My cool new scrappin' bag...

I have to give a big shout out to my hubby for taking care of the kids while I was scrappin. Thanks dear! And also thanks to the Relay for Life Team Our Family Tree for hosting this event. I had a blast!


  1. I miss scrapping so much. I was a big one too, totes full of things to do. Now I blog. *sigh* No room or time to scrap. It's a lot of fun and I am so glad you had such a wonderful time.

  2. You got to have fun and win prizes! How fun! And even for a good cause is even better!

  3. Sounds like fun!! And lucky you winning the Grand Prize...that's a cool bag! I think I'd use it as a purse too :-)

    Your scrapbook pages came out awesome. I found I didn't have the patience for paper scrapbooking, but I love digital scrapping...no mess to clean up!

  4. I am so excited that you are into this...I know that the girls at work who do it LOVE it, and have a great time together! It is a great chance to build bonds and friendships!! You seem to be great at it so I hope you can keep it up!!!!

  5. that looks like so much fun! i really want to get involved in scrap booking. love the pictures and your creations!!!!!!!!!! :)

  6. I knew you would LOVE It! It is fun and relaxing.. My only problem is that I can't do it at home..No room and Harper would be into it..
    Glad you had fun!

  7. I'm glad you enjoyed it!! I'm not sure I'm cut out for it!! I got burnt out pretty fast and I think I took it too seriously. I get too goal oriented and then get stresseed that I'm not getting my goal done which means I have to be serious!!

  8. BlueHost is the best hosting company for any hosting services you need.
