I'm in! I'll have to be done early in the month, though. I have a bit of travel at the end. That should be a little more motivation, right? ;)

Please count me in too.....

After seeing the number of pages people completed last month...maybe this is the incentive I need to get my scrapbook for our Disney Panama Canal Cruise from May 05 completed.

Its really easy. You just post when you have completed pages. Doesnt matter how simple or complex - everything counts. Who ever has the most pages at the end of the month, gets a small prize and gets to host the next months challenge.

You just post how many pages you have completed.

I am new to scrapbooking - what is this challenge?? Please let me know. Thanks

Besides what has already been stated, a completed page also includes journaling, it isn't a completed page if you haven't done the journaling.

I have completed 3 pages so far. I hope to do more today but wanted to put down what I have done so far before I forget.

I finished 8 pages this weekend! That's more than half of what I did all last month. I don't know if they count yet, but it's still getting me closer to my goal of finishing scrapping my disney pictures. I would also like to get a trip report done from my last trip before I forget.

HI

Yes I got it on Thursday night. Thanks a bunch. It has been on my desk all weekend because I didnt know who sent it and I thought it was sent by mistake. It didnt dawn on my till last night that it was from you LOL :rotfl2: I am in a loop from when I was pregnant (9yrs ago) and there is a subloop of scrappers and I thought it was one of them - they think I am nuts because they all said no. :rotfl:
Sorry for not posting sooner - much appreciated

I finished two more pages (I'm not even going to tell you how long they took).

I also finished the trip write up from our last trip, which doesn't count, but I'm proud of myself and had to share!

rlovew
06-05-2006, 06:23 PM
I got 10 pages done today. 9 to finish up a scrapbook of trips we took 5 years ago. And then the 1st in my EPCOT scrapbook. We go to Disney so often and float from park to park depending on crowds and our moods that I can't see scraping ours by trip so I have decided to scrap by park instead.

06-06-2006, 08:05 AM
WOW - I'm in such a scrap slump!!! I can't seem to get anything done! I did finally finish our Oct 05 trip books (3 full albums!), and now I'm starting dd's school book from kindergarten this year. I've done 6 pages this month so far! that's it! & I don't have any weekends or long crops all month long. I think it's gonna be September before I ger moving again. I haven't even been on the boards much lately....kids/summer/pool/kids....did I mention kids? seem to be taking up all my time!

rlovew
06-06-2006, 07:35 PM
Got 2 more done today. I'm glad we have this challenge because I hadn't done anything really since I had stopped my Thursday night crops.

Updated till here.

I am in the midst of cleaning my enitre scrapbook area. Under my table I have a whole bunch of photos. So I dug through those and organized them better (by event or family member). That took the better part of a week. I have pictures dating back to high school - which was a loooooong :rotfl: time ago.
Originally DH was going to build me a book case that was 13 inches deep just for scrapping. We walked into an unfinished furniture store and then sitting there was the perfect cabinet. Bought it and Dh and stained it and its in but I have to organize everything.
So I have zero pages for the month and dont see that one changing.

:rolleyes: I've done3 pages, but I'm also doing a picfolio for my MIL birthday, a card for Father's Day (with the lids) and preparing a swap. Not really sitting in the sun, honest :rolleyes:

I completed 7 pages today and that brings my total up to 10!

I also completed my 2001 trip book, one of my goals for the month. Next project is Great Wolf Lodge spring break.

06-10-2006, 07:13 PM
Well, I finished 20 pages of dd's kindergarten book last night! BOY are they SIMPLE!!!! Yikes! Once I left the "magic" of my Disney albums, I just couldn't get inspired! Oh well they're done! I'm up to 30 for the month...that's probably all I'm gonna do. We leave for vacation (not Disney) on the 20th & I'm not back until July 2nd!

RRBB

Can I join in? I went to a couple of crops at the GASC this week and was really on a roll. I worked on a couple different albums. I know I got at least 6 pages done in one of them, don't have a count yet for the other. I'm bound and determined to finish at least one of the albums in the next few weeks. I don't want to set it aside and not get back to it for 3 years, which seems to be what's happened with the past few albums I've worked on.

I got 10 pages done this weekend on my Disney Magic Panama Canal Cruise from May '05. I'm now up to day 5 of our 14 day cruise!!!! My goal is to try to have this scrapbook done by the end of the summer.

Thanks for having this challenge....after seeing the number of pages scrappers completed last month....it was the motivation I needed to try to get my scrapbook done.

Hurray! I'm finally on the board. Phew. :cool1: I did 16 tonight at a crop. DD's book is now up to April. Almost there. She turns 3 on the 23rd. I don't know if I can make it! :)

rlovew
06-13-2006, 05:13 AM
4 more yesterday for 16 total for the month but I need to get busy. I am making one as a baby book for my sister and I want to give it to her when I see her on the 30th. It needs 16 more pages.

I just counted the pages I got done at the crop for DS's First WDW Trip album. I'm amazed, I got 19 pages done. So along with the other album I worked on - a numbers book for DNiece - that brings my total to 25 pages. Not bad for 2 nights of crops with DIS friends I haven't seen since last year's GASC.

The last couple of nights I actually worked on a mini album for MIL to take on her trip to Europe this weekend. I don't know that I should really count that though. It was 15 pages, but each pages was just a single 2.5x3.5 photo of grandkids. She likes the tiny albums that fit in the palm of her hand to carry on her trips, and I like to make sure she has current photos when she goes. (MIL & FIL go to Europe about 3 times a year for at least 2 weeks at a time.)

RRBB
06-16-2006, 05:43 PM
Woohoo! :banana: I just got another 10 pages done for DS's WDW album. I still have quite a few more to go, but I think I'll actually make my goal of finishing it by the end of the month.

This brings my total up to 35 pages so far this month.

scrappinmom
06-17-2006, 08:37 AM
4 more for me ...but that's it for June! We leave for vacation on Monday the 19 & won't be home till the 29th!

:wave2: nope not Disney....going to Cape Cod for dd's Theatre On Ice National skating competition.....

but I will be drinking lots of wine :drinking1

I did 8 pages today bringing me up to 30. This baby book is keeping me busy.

Honeybehr1
06-20-2006, 07:43 AM
Sorry I have been so scarce lately, another busy weekend. We went to see THomas the Tank and had such a blast. I got my pictures back and I got a set for MIL and thought about putting them in a book. I need to do it kind of quickly though. So I will be starting that today. She likes smaller books so I am leaning towards an 8X8. Anthing smaller and I have problems doing the pages :goodvibes

Anyhoo I finally updated till here.

Keep on scrappin ladies

I got another 16 pages completed in the last few days. That brings me up to 51. I don't think I've ever gotten so much done in such a short amount of time. And I'm still on a roll; I really want to get this album done so I can say I've "finished" something for a change.

Hi everyone. I am updated up to here. Way to go RRBB!!!!

Keep up the good work everyone.


I decided to do a small 8X8 album for MIL about our Day out with Thomas the Tank Engine on fathers day. It took only three days for the whole album. Much different than using 12X12. I hope MIL likes it.

Mickey&JoshNut

I forgot to post, I got another 7 pages done last week. Unfortunately I ran out of steam after that. And I'm so close to finishing the album - just have some journaling pages, TOC, and dedication to do. Maybe I'll get a burst of energy before I go to bed tonight?
