Gettin' it done...

So I'm a bad, bad paper scrapper... We started CJ swap in May 2007 - when I was still about 50/50 with my scrapping. In November one of the other participants disappeared off our radar completely. REALLY odd because she's one of our more reliable members, but there you have it. The reason we found out she'd disappeared is because the CJ I sent to her in Oct came BACK to me from the USPS for not being picked up!

So we waited a while trying to get a hold of her, then diliberated, and the hostess decidedshe would angel the pages forthemissing person until we find out what's going on. Well, by then it was December, and with the holidays and the bankruptcy I managed to completely forget about it... Fast forward to this morning when I went to GS to check on something, and found that the hostess has been trying to get a hold of me. I feel like a goober. We don't get PM notices by email from GS, and I hadn't been there for a few days again. Anywho, I have completed the pages for the CJ that wasdue out in NOVEMBER... I am going to do the one I just got either tonight or tomorrow morning so I can take them BOTH to the PO together tomorrow.

Somebody needs to slap me. I just have no inspiration where this CJ is concerned. It will be my last for quite a while I believe. Give me digi, and I'm all over it, but paper... well??? Of course, that doesn't stop me when I find AWESOME buys... I got several items at a $1 store yesterday... We're talking BG and K by Marcella metal items & stickers here folks!

So here's the one I finished this morning:

Congrats on the LOTDs!

I totally hear you on the paper scrapping. I don't know that I'll ever go back after going digi.

Drive safe out there today.
