I'm back! (For one day.)

I am excited to spend the entire day at my store tomorrow! But also nervous because my son will be there with me all day long. So if anyone would like to come and visit (it's been a long time since I have seen some of you!) I would LOVE the company.
I am planning on scrapbooking as much as possible (I'm taking some of my pre-planned pages with me). If you need a little creative escape, come join me, I'll have a spare table set up in the store (I'll be there until midnight as we have a private crop booked).

Summer Surfer Special no.003

Thanks for surfing our blog!
This week only... (July 15th to 19th) stop by the store, mention our Summer Surfer Promo Code and receive
40% OFF all K&Co. 12x12 Albums.
(So there's no more excuses for having a pile of finished layouts! After all, you put so much hard work into your scrapbooks you need to make sure they are accessible...)
Promo Code: BEACH alBUM!
* Maximum three albums per household. Code MUST be mentioned at time of purchase (no exceptions) and cannot be applied to past purchases. While quantities last.

Oh no!

Summer is flying by! It's already mid-July, where has the time gone? While some of my friends are trying to entertain their school-aged kids, I am typing as fast as I can before my month old baby wakes up! But I know one thing, NOT very many people are scrapbooking.
So here's THE PLAN:
I KNOW I don't get much time to sit down and fire up the Cricut these days. And when a rainy day (like today) comes, I find myself unprepard to scrapbook. My new strategy for the summer is to pre-plan my pages. I took my photos to the store, picked out the matching papers, and filed them away (and maybe a couple embellishments) WITH the photos for that layout. When the rain comes, I'll be ready, and if the projects don't get finished (or even started!) until the fall....I'll be ready to go then. No guilt.
Thanks to Kim who inspired me to have all my "projects/layouts" pre-planned and ready to roll. I envy your organization.
This summer has created some great photos, & therefore great scrapbooking. Here are two of my fav's that will be first on the list "to be scrapbooked".
