Let's see.. I would like to get our August 2005 Disney trip done... I need to get some more of my kids pictures scrapped.. I need to help DD scrap her pages for her 4-H scrapbook exhibit.. She does the work, I just supervise!
I need to finish the Baby Swap and than start working on my elements for 2 other swaps...

05-01-2006, 01:30 PM
OK count me in. I'm bound and determined to start my wedding album and then one for the new house we are building plus work on my year in review album for the year. We'll see ho wmuch actually gets done but thats my plan.

05-01-2006, 01:45 PM
I'd like to join to, if I could. I've never participated before. Anything special I need to know?

I'm working on my DS 5th year album and my DD 2nd year album both with a WDW trip.

I'd like to join too. This is my first post, but been reading for awhile now. Just came back from the World so I need to work on my pictures.

05-01-2006, 03:00 PM
Okay, I'm in! (crossing fingers) I took April off since the baby was so young, but I'm ready to jump back in now! I plan to scrap through the end of 2003 this month, which will include trips to Disneyland/California Adventure, Italy & France for a work trip, our "mini-moon" to WDW which was DH's first trip, and Thanksgiving/Christmas pictures from that year.

Here's hoping I can get this done! In fact, I'm pulling out my stuff right this second and starting on California Adventure!

05-01-2006, 03:21 PM
Count me in. I did 4 pages today. I am hoping to finish up the Disney October 2005 trip. I can say I am getting tired of doing it. I have been working on it since Nov.

I am also working on organizing and cropping the professinal pictures I have taken of the kids. I have an album for each son and a family album for any picture that I have taken of both of them together.

Hey Kathy - I'm with ya! I'm in for this months' challenge. My October trip was a mommy & dd's only trip...we had so much fun...I'm on album #3 and page number (eek I'm afraid to count).....114! It's the trip that will never end!!! lol

I'm also hoping to get dd's kindergarten stuff scrapped BEFORE she's out of kindergarten!!!!

Its been raining here all day....I did manage to kick may off with 10 pages!

05-01-2006, 05:25 PM
:wave2: I'd like to participate. I started and completed a huge scrapbook this weekend for my pastor's 15th anniversary. It got me inspired to get back on my own books. We went to WDW in March and I need to work on that book and about 10 other ones. :guilty:

How do these work? Do we just post when we've completed pages?

I'm new to the scrapbooking board, but not new to disboards. I'm happy to find a place where we have both scrapbooking and disney in common. I've enjoyed looking at everyone's layouts and reading posts from y'all!


05-01-2006, 05:44 PM
Welcome everyone!

Ladies, do you mind if I end the challenge for May on May 25th? We leave for vacation on the 26th and I would like to get the winner's gift out before we depart...I won't be back online until June 5! Maybe we can just carry any pages over from the 26 on to June??? Thoughts, ideas?

Jessie's Girl- are you a RS fan? Just curious! :cool1:

05-01-2006, 07:05 PM
Really, really I'm in this month! I've got to redeem the whopping 0 I got last month! I need to scrap our October 2005 trip and catch up on our family albums. :thumbsup2

05-01-2006, 08:17 PM
HI I wouldlike to join :wave2: :wave2: too, are there things that we need to do ... post everytime we complete a page? I am working on my son's baby's album, he is 20 months old in the album and he's 2 1/2 now. But I would like to scrap up to his 2nd birthday and then start his sister's who is turning 10 months old. I will say that I been doing more lately but I think it helps when you have support from friends :grouphug: .

05-01-2006, 08:34 PM
me too -- i'm hoping to finish our 11/05 DCL book

05-02-2006, 11:40 AM
I fell miserably short of my goal last month to finish scrapbooking our trip from November, so I guess I'll try it again this month.

I am glad to hear that I'm not the only one who can turn a seven day vacation into a 100 page album though!

I say end the month on the 25th if that works best for you - maybe a short month will inspire us to do more sooner.

05-02-2006, 03:33 PM
I am in!!! I did 6 pages last night.

I would like to finish my DC trip, my Great Wolf Lodge trip and my 2001 Disney trip (only about 6 pages left in that one).

05-02-2006, 03:59 PM
I say the 25th of the month to end is good.. School ends the 26th... Memorial Day weekend.. than my DS 9 will be 10 on the 29th.. so it would work great for me to end early...

BTW, I'm on the books.. I have 2 pages done.. My DH is away on business starting tonight so I plan to scrap while he is gone...

05-02-2006, 07:13 PM
Updated to here!

05-02-2006, 08:37 PM
Is there anything special you have to do to register for this month's challenge????

I've never done one of these...so I'm hoping it will get me motivated to get my scrapbooks done...afterall this Saturday is National scrapbook day and I plan on scrapping the whole day!!!!!

So please....count me in!!!

05-03-2006, 09:50 AM
You missed my numbers or our posts crossed.. I have 2 on the books and working on some today!!! Thanks a bunch!!!

05-03-2006, 04:30 PM
I have been on a roll here - 20 pages so far. I got 12 done last night alone. My CM rep is also having a challenge of 1 page a day for the month. So I need to do at least a page a day.

05-03-2006, 08:09 PM

05-04-2006, 07:16 PM
Today has been a VERY productive day for my albums, not for anything else. ;) I got 21 pages done yesterday and today! Hurray for me. I have so many more to do... I just need to get refills, time and energy. I'm done for today. Phew.

05-04-2006, 08:18 PM

Thanks Erica

05-09-2006, 08:25 AM
I finished DS's book last night! (Well, I got it current, in any case.) 9 more pages done. Now I'm on to DD's book. That one isn't even started yet, but her birthday at the end of June, so I'm doing fine. :)

05-09-2006, 09:26 AM
I did another 8 pages last night so that brings my total up to 14 for the month.

05-09-2006, 10:40 AM
Add 5 more pages to me please!!
thank you.. things are going as quickly as I like..the kids activities are taking more time due to changes at the last minute with the teachers! Go figure... I should know better than to make plans! ;)

05-09-2006, 10:45 AM
I'm in for the month! Last night I completed a mini book of the night my neice was born, I've also done the title page for last year's WDW trip, a LO of Scott meeting Belle and one of my cats so I'm at 15 for the month so far!

05-09-2006, 03:25 PM
I have finally finished Magic Kindgom day 5 of our 6 day trip :woohoo:
I have MGM and DTD left to do and then I can assemble them all in the albums. I have some in albums because people wanted to look at them and I didnt want the kids to ruin the embellishments. But I am so excited that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Just in time for our next vacation next month to CT.

I also started my Mom's album. She has dementia and we hope it will help her remember everyone.

So, I am up to 47 pages done! :cloud9:

05-14-2006, 06:30 PM
:cool1: Happy Mother's Day to all our mommy's out there!

05-14-2006, 11:58 PM
Happy Mother's Day all! I got a little bit of time today to work on DD's book. Got 9 pages done! :) I also got 4 mother's day presents done (one for me too!) and got supplies together to make some vegetable for DS's kindergarten class. Hopefully, I get time to finish that project. But I digress. Hope everyone had a good day!

05-15-2006, 11:19 AM
I finished four more pages. Actually it was 5, but one doesn't count. It was so hideous I broke my own rule and redid it.

In case your wondering bright green stipes on a Buzz lightyear page do NOT look good even if they do match the green on Buzz's space suit. :rotfl2:

05-15-2006, 06:32 PM
I went to a 4 hour crop on friday night and did 11 pages - grand total so far this month is 53. WOW i cant beleive I have dont that much. I tend to work in 2 page spreads so its that much easier. My goal of having Disney totally scrapped by the end of the month now seems like a possibility. :banana:

05-15-2006, 08:26 PM
If it hadn't been midnight (and way past my bedtime) I would have proofread my last post. Yikes! Anyway, the 9 I got done yesterday brought my total up to 60. That other stuff was just confusing. Sorry. :rolleyes2

05-21-2006, 10:44 PM
I am up to 73 pages. :cheer2: I think that is an all time high for me. Thanks for the motivation. I have finished scrapping the pictures from Disney. Now I have a few pages to do that have maps and such on them. And a couple of the professional pics we had taken. I was thinking of putting DS birthday pictures in there since that is when he found out about the trip(day before we left)

05-22-2006, 10:49 AM
I did 24 pages over the weekend. I have a total of 38 so far this month. Not to shabby.

I completed my DC trip album, I hope to finish my 2001 Disney trip album this coming weekend.

05-22-2006, 09:52 PM
I got 7 more done tonight! :yay: I'm into 2006 for my DD and I'm about to start her portion of the Disney trip! I'm going to try to get it done by the 25th. Of course, I'll keep you all posted.

05-23-2006, 07:53 AM
Updated! :cool1:

Remember only a few more days left to report for this month! I will be doing the final counts on Thursday night!

05-24-2006, 06:02 PM
13 More for me today. DD's Disney is done! :cool1: Phew. I'm actually almost to Valentine's Day now.

05-24-2006, 07:46 PM
Last chance ladies! I will tally on Thursday evening so please report your pages by 5 pm EST! Who will it be this month???? :cheer2:

05-25-2006, 12:02 AM
I dont think I will get to scrap tomorrow but I am up to 97 pages. That is a record for me. :cloud9:

05-25-2006, 09:00 PM
This challenge is officially closed for the month! Thank you all for participating and congratulations to Kathy!!!

05-25-2006, 09:09 PM
Wowie! Great job everyone! Just think how many memories have been preserved this month. We all did a great job. :cool1:

05-31-2006, 05:10 PM
hey, i'm late :teeth: nothing new

i did complete the 'base' of about 22 pages this month, but never got back to get the final embellishments and journaling done. never felt right claiming those pages as 'done' but that's my first priority for June!
