October 2013 Vogue PRE-LOAD Blog Hop, could Batman and Robin be in your future?

Thanks for stopping by to get your scrapbook groove on for the 
month of October.  If you just stumbled onto my blog or are 
hopping around, here is a list of all the scrappers participating 
so you won't miss great tips and information to make this a lot of fun!
After my first LOAD in February 2012, I was hooked and now 
this is what I am doing to get ready for my sixth:
1.  Getting a new printer.  I got this message this week and trust me, there is 
no paper jam so it must be a sensor issue, and it is cheaper to buy a new 
printer than fix the old one.  If you don't have any photos that match the 
prompt and you need to print one, easier to do that at home than running 
down to Walgreens, Walmart, Costco, etc. in your jammies.
2.  Making traditional 12 x 12 or 8 x 11 1/2 pages, pocket pages, or digital 
pages. "Get her done fast" will be my mantra in the most efficient way 
possible, unless I have extra time to play a bit that day.  I have even made 
layouts on my phone using the Fuzel Pro and Over apps while traveling, 
uploaded them, and then printed them out later.
3.  Sleeping on the prompts. I get them at 10 p.m. here in Colorado so it's 
great to be able to mull it over before I go to bed and get up with lots of 
ideas, or if nothing hits me, do the next layout that I want to do to get 
my one a day uploaded.  It's all good!
4.  There is no judgment here!  This is fun!  What is even more fun is on 
Halloween,  you can look back at your stack or album of layouts and say I 
live with Batman and Robin and I finished telling all of these 
great stories!  Well, maybe not the Batman and Robin part, 
but I had to post this picture from last Halloween!  :)

Thanks for stopping by and now go check out our Scrapper

Week in the Life 2013 September 9-15

I decided to try this project started by Ali Edwards a few years ago and I was very pleased with how it turned out.  We had no idea we would have one of the wettest weeks ever here in Colorado Springs on record.  The project took longer to put together than I thought it would, as I used a variety of techniques
and I love the Collect app!  Enjoy, this will definitely be a yearly project for me!
