I am a chronological scrapper. And I also feel like my main purpose is to document things so I don't forget them in a year or two. I know this isn't everyone's approach-but it is mine. Having said that I was anxious to finish up my son's preschool pictures before he started kindergarten. I was able to accomplish that mission!

I did this layout using items from both our sponsors at Practical Scrappers. The Cherry Brads come from the Eyelet Outlet and the Doodling is from a Crafter's Workshop. I thought the sweet and sour was a perfect description of my two year old!

This layout made me a little sad to do. I had a great time with my friends at this conference-but I was also experiencing bad morning sickness and the excitement of a new pregnancy that ended in miscarriage. I will be glad to be done scrapping pictures from that pregnancy! Nonetheless they are moments in my life and I can't just skip over that 12 weeks.

Here's a plug for a great feature at the Cricut Messageboards-you can get in on a swap for cuts that you want but don't have the cartridges for. This month I request several from Pooh & Friends because my Lucy loves that gang. I scrapbooked this within a week of them arriving-aren't they adorable?

Argh! This is how I feel about this challenge! I really like to try to do something very creative-it did not happen! I got this done today about 3 minutes before hosting a dinner party. I guess my mind is on Kindergarten this week-not vellum :). I do have to say that I really love my journaling on this...you won't hear me say that very often!

The challenge this week on Practical Scrappers is to use up scraps. I love to make layouts using as much paper up as I can, so this was no problem for me (as evidenced by the 4 postings I did there!!!) Anyway this was yet another creation that I decided not to post there...I tried to share some of my more creative scrap uses on there and although this one uses lots of scraps, it's nothing earth shattering :). This shot is of my dad making the annual Christmas breakfast.

This is my entry for Practical Scrappers this week. The challenge this week is to use at least 3 stickers on a page. I sat down and sorted thru my piles of stickers trying to find some inspiration. I initially pulled these leaves out thinking that I could do an old fall layout. But they were such a good match for the Wisconsin cabin photo I went that route instead. I used one of the big Fiskars circle templates to help me get the leaves all lined up.
