Ahhhhhhh .......... makes perfect sense! So glad you told me. I would hate to create beautiful pages and have them get messed up in shipping!!!

My DS moved up from rec ball to the Middle School this year so he's been practicing ALL SUMMER! Due to our work schedules and his practice schedule and where we live (WAY away from the school!), we've literally utilized EIGHT different people (including myself and DH) to get him to practice this summer! There's no way I could add another kid/practice schedule to that insanity!!!

DD is a HS cheerleader --- but she doesn't cheer for the school she attends (go figure! ) so that adds to the crazy fall schedule for us too .....



Sorry Lisa! That was just a little off topic ........
Okay - I'm going BACK to Michael's at "lunch" today so I can hit the paper sale (again) ........ Anyone need anything???

no problem going off topic, we do it ALL the time

sorry you have to go back to Michel's again, but it really does keep the pages in good shape!

did Shawna send you a message yet?

Hello Ladies,

I am going to close this up a bit early, we are headed out to Rachal's today and due to the president being in town we are going to take the ferry over instead of the freeways which will be a MESS!!



here is the final count for your pages!

we have 13 swappers + 3 sets for donating to the Big Give

you will be making 16 sets of your 2 page LO's!


Ready,
set,
SCRAP!!!!!!

enjoy putting these together!!!

..........well, I'm a bit of a "Chatty-Cathy" in person, so it tends to bleed over to the boards ....... You'll see soon enough!

Yes, I DID go back to Michael's at "lunch" ......HOWEVER..... it wasn't to buy the cardstock to mount the pages! I just needed more of my background paper ..... then I found some perfect for clouds ...... and a cute shiny one for the accent on the house .... and some yellow & orange to work up a sun .... and ........ FOR THE LOVE OF MY BANK ACCOUNT ..... PLEASE DO NOT LET ME GO BACK TO MICHAEL's (or JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby) BEFORE I GET ANOTHER PAYCHECK!!!!

Hi, my name is Leah and I'm addicted to PAPER!!!

No, I've not heard from Shawna yet, but I'm certain I will soon. I did, however, get a friend request from some woman named Anne.....

Lisa Love your pages

Leah I'm Sandy and I too am a paper addict except that I have gone way over boards in the last little while with being home on bedrest during most of my pregnancy and being bored... I have over 1000 papers, now I have to finda way to use them before my sister gets into it

Here's what I came up with:





The pieces are NOT glued down, so I can still move things around if needed.

Also, do the photo mats need to be double matted? I wasn't sure. I looked at your example Lisa, but it looked like they were single boxes. I can double mat if needed!

Cute page Leah! Up to Lisa but often the mats on these are just place holders so you should be fine. Lisa will definitely give you a sure answer soon. Regarding the paper addictions...you all will not get any help to cure that addiction here. That is a common illness around these parts! LOL Must be contagious!

Thank you ladies!!! I'm glad y'all like it ...... since you're getting it!
I think it's cuter in person than the photo, but that's the way they usually are.

I think we need to start a support group: Paper Addicts Anonymous
We can all just go ahead and add "PAA Member" to our siggie lines now ....


Yes, while hitting Michael's for the NEEDED paper for this project this week, I also found the elusive "oh, that's soooo pretty!!! I'm sure I'll use that for something ..... AND it's ON SALE so I need go ahead and buy it now!" paper!!!

And ....... OF COURSE .... while I was cutting last night, I figured out that I need MORE of one of my colors so I have to go BACK to Michael's while it's still on sale this week to get enough to complete the project!!!


Lisa, you have my address ..... feel free to send a beautiful homemade card my way! I've been VERY slack about card-making lately. Maybe I need additional inspiration .........?

sounds like we need an intervention ladies Leah put down that paper and just walk away


well don't know how beautiful they are, just running them through my cuttlebug and adding a bit of ribbon pretty simple, but gets the job done!

Hi, my name is Jennifer and I'm a paper addict. I have more paper than I can count, more paper than I could ever use in this lifetime, I love paper!

Love the layout, Leah. And that paper is great, Rachal!

I love your layout Leah. I have been wanting to use that little house and never knew what to do with it. I always thought about using it for Toontown but now that it's gone...

Rachal that paper is VERY pretty. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

Well I gues we are all paper addicts. I use to buy 3 of each paper because I needed to do the same LO for each of my DDs but now htat I have a 4th one and some papers are not available, what's a girl to do
