:cool1:

I did 60 pages on 10/1 and 10/2 (72 total for the crop but need to take off 12 for friday the last day in September).

So thats my start and probably my finish..... :rotfl: unless I can get busy and do a few more pages.

woo hoo here we go again......

I'll play!! Not sure how much I'll get done since DD14 and her high school soccer team will be playing for State Championship this month but hopefully I'll squeeze out a few pages. :cheer2:

I'll play...Haven't done any so far, but hoping for several tonight/tomorrow. Question-I read the curiosity last month about 6x6 pages. How did you guys decide they counted? I'm doing a regular 12x12 and a 6x6 right now, so some of mine will be the itty pages.

I'm in for this month. I've finished 4 pages in Circle Journals, and 6 pages of 12 X 12 LO's. So that makes 10 in all for me so far.

JudithM

I didn't go back to the September thread to read what we (probably me) wrote, but my educated guess is that as long as you complete the pages - photos, embellishments, journaling, whatever, etc. - is complete, the page counts. I suppose there might be a size limit like nothing smaller than 6"x6". Anyone else with input?

10-03-2005, 05:40 PM
Got everyone to here!

Keep those pages coming! My crops are all late month this month so I won't have much to contribute until after the 21st since I will be busy putting kits together! :earsboy:

10-03-2005, 06:33 PM
I'm on the board with a whopping ONE page! :cool1: (And it was the page for the first date my DH and I had two and a half years ago, so that was fun!) I should do well this month since I'll be going to Croptoberfest, and I've re-organized my office and so now I'm super motivated.

Alice28

:teeth: Holy Guacamole Goofymom!

I'm in for the month- have zero so far, but have my whole Disney World trip to scrap. Just gotta wait for my pics to come in from Disney Photo Pass.

Did anyone notice that CM has NEW Disney stickers coming out this month? It's a new Disney Snappack- LOVE IT. It's $13.50 and has some new sticker designs, and new paper pieces. :cheer2:

10-03-2005, 09:57 PM
Count me in for October! I have done ONE page so far. Hopefully I can't get as much done as last month.

BTW, I agree with the general consensus that any size layout counts as long as the layout is as "finished" as its gonna get (journaling or whatever).

I'm in. Today is a BONUS day for me. I was schedule to sub at school, but the phone rang at 6:05 am (after I was up and showered, of course :rolleyes: ) and they said there was a mistake and they didn't need me. So I have a full day at home I didn't count on. I'm gonna scrap like crazy! I'm not going to exercise or do any housework!! Just cropping, cropping, cropping!! Watch out folks~!.....................P :cool1:

Well, I am a slow scrapper. Plus I got a bit sidetracked (see my post on the Budget Board) this morning. But I managed to completely finish 8 pages (4-8 1/2 x11 for my Dad and 4-12 x 12 for the kids 2004 Disney books). And I am ready to start glueing two more. So I am on board! ...............P

10-05-2005, 09:36 AM
OK, I'm in. I don't know how much I'll get done, but I am on teh board at least with my 2 cj pages. Let's hope I can find time for more. With another baby blanket to do, gone 3 out of the next 4 weekends, and marathon training, I''m not going to get my hopes up!

goofymom/pop

WDWMom

Finished 2 more today while teaching. Got to love testing time and subbing. Not much to do but read or scrap. Even got my ABC swap stuff done.

Alice28

10-06-2005, 09:03 PM

And yes I did see the new Disney snap pack up close and in person.Its really cute!

saucymb
10-06-2005, 09:27 PM
We had a gloriously dreary day here, rain and occasional thunder. I sat at my SB desk, window open with my two cats in the windowsill, and scrapped the day away. I got 8 pages done today, so that brings my total for October up to 9 so far. I think it's supposed to be like this all weekend, so maybe I'll catch up to you ladies in the 60-70 page range! Can you tell I'm joking?

WDWAurora
10-06-2005, 10:31 PM
I'm up to 14! I finally got started tonight. I finished one of my bridal showers. One more to go since there aren't pictures of the 3rd. I'm also hoping to do engagement pages and rehearsal dinner pages this month.

JudithM
10-06-2005, 11:44 PM
I just finished my first pages for October - four (4)!

TN Traveler
10-07-2005, 07:57 PM
I'm FINALLY on the board w/12 pages completed. Most were done last month but b/c I hadn't finished the journaling or added a few emblishments I wanted to add, I didn't count until today. Maybe I'll get some done this weekend--if I have the energy. DD14 starts district playoffs tomorrow afternoon...game Sat, Tues night, Thursday night and then next Tues & Thurs depending if they win. :cheer2:

I am in:

I did a 14 page paperbag album that is 5x5 so not sure if this counts as 14 pages or what. It also has tags. It is really cute all about AK.

I also did 2 12x12s

Beanie

goofymom/pop
10-09-2005, 12:37 AM
OK I HAVE TO SHARE>>>>>>>>>They are done....the Gettysburg albums are done....a total of 40 pages per album....woo hoo!!!!

That makes me 105 pages since last Saturday.....I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo thrilled

This is such a huge accomplishment and now I can move back to the family albums and get caught up. Plus I can emerge from my Scrappin room to do laundry, cook and clean the house.

JudithM
10-09-2005, 12:43 AM
CONGRATULATIONS, CINDY!!

That is quite a BIG accomplishment!!

Spinning
10-09-2005, 09:03 AM
WOW! goofymom/pop That is an amazing amount of pages completed! What a wonderful feeling...... :cheer2: :cheer2: :cheer2:
I have completed 5 pages so far. May do some more today. But at least both kids school books are completed up till the start of this year! So I am happy!

Great job Cindy!

I have updated to here! And finally got on the board with 18! Now I need to go make some kits for this Friday's crop!

Keep cropping ladies!

Judith, THANK YOU! I got your package in the mail yesterday! :banana:

JudithM
10-09-2005, 06:11 PM
Scraphappy92, you are quite welcome!! You might be sending Cindy a package next month - she is on a BIG roll!!

goofymom/pop
10-09-2005, 07:24 PM
I am happy to be done with those books. That is the first time I duplicated (actually did 3 so is it triplicated...lol) a book. I think that is why I could do so much, I would do my album then remake the pages two more times. Worked out good. Plus I have to say that power layout really helped me a ton.

Now if I could figure out how to power clean my house....oh good heavens it is a disaster....lol! But I have a crop to prepare for on friday...whats a girl to do... :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

hehe Yeah, I'm doing a mini-book, plus my big albums, so I got motivated this weekend. It's easier when they're all on the same subject. I'm not figuring anybody will catch up with goofymompop this month! She did AWESOME at her crop earlier this month-if only we could all be that organized!!

WDWMom
10-10-2005, 08:24 AM
I managed to get some more done this weekend. I think I am up to 11 pages now, but I will update later. I have 7 more pages to go from our WDW 2005 trip so that is my goal this week. I have 6 pages with me today as I am subbing and teaching Spanish. No hablo espanol. The kids will be working quietly so I figure I can do crowd control and scrap at the same time.

pjlla
10-10-2005, 09:10 AM
I completed two more yesterday for a grand total this month so far of 10. whoopie.
I've got two more almost done. Certainly not a winning total for the month, but at least it is progress!................P

I'm getting a late start, but it's for a good reason. . .we just got back from WDW!!! It was wonderful, and as usual, I have TONS of new pictures to scrap. Football season finishes this month, so I think I might have time to get at least a few pages done. :wizard:

WDWAurora
10-16-2005, 09:31 PM
2 more for me...I started 2 more, but after that I'm not sure I'll have any more for a while-there are pictures I need to have made before I can do the wedding pictures, and I'm determined to do the wedding before I do the honeymoon!

I've done 4 more, I think that puts me to 13? Not a huge total, but progress is progress.......

WDWAurora
10-20-2005, 09:04 PM
2 more! I forgot I did them last night. They were the "engagement" pages.

I also have a recommendation for you guys, if you haven't discovered these. I bought a set of chatterbox journaling templates (I think that's what they're called) a while back. Mine are wedding themed and I found them on clearance at a local general store. I used the engagement ring one last night and it turned out BEAUTIFULLY! I can't wait to use the rest. This one was an engagement ring, there's also a cake, a flower, and a just married sign.

Alice28
10-20-2005, 09:21 PM
4 more for me! I'm LOVING all my WDW elements from our swap we did last year! Making things go VERY quickly! :banana: :banana:

Another 4 done late last night. I *think* that puts me at 24! :cool1:

One joy of being a CMC is I am never out of adhesive!
I only finished one more, but I have 8 more that are close. I think that's 4 for now, but double digits are coming. :rotfl:

pjlla
10-24-2005, 09:36 AM
Did we decide that smaller pages counted?? I did notice someone asking about 6 x 6 pages. I completed 68 5 x 7 pages this week! I went on "scrapping alert" that we were celebrating DSIL's 50th b.day. I had less than one week to get this done. And it came out great! She loved it. SO if that counts, I am up to 88 for the month!! (If it doesn't, I'm still at 20 and will probably stay there. Have to sew costumes this week!)...............P

wtpclc
10-24-2005, 09:46 AM
I'd always heard that size did not matter. I did some 4x6's that I counted. They all had 2 to 3 pics and journaling, though. I think if it's something you considere scrapped, it counts.

goofymom/pop
10-24-2005, 09:47 AM
a finished page is a finished page no matter the size in my book.

Congrats on finishing the album and so many pages. :teeth: Great job!

What a productive month we are having here on the Dis! :banana: :banana:

JulianneCP

I finally finished my WDW March 2005 trip. I also think I am current to Easter 2005. WHEW!!! I think I am only 7 months behind. But I am coming up to the time of th year when I take a ton of pictures. Getting from Easter to the 1st day of school won't take too long, but with DS in Football, DD is CC and homecoming plus the first day of school and Halloween coming I am feeling so stressed. I told my self no more swaps so I could spend more time on my pictures. I think I will feel better after football season (professional) cause that is when I get most of my scrapping done, while DH is watching on Sundays.

BTW, I am at 22 pages.

My total for the month is 32. My goal was 31 (one per day) so I am happy what I have done. Going to a crop on Sat. so I plan to bring my mom's pictures and book and plug away at those and hopfully have a complete ablum for her at Thanksgiving. I hav several pages done already but I figure if I can work diligently (sp?) I can have a 40 page album done by Thanksgiving. Might be wishful thinking.
