I'll start off by saying I am totally owed a weekend without housework and kids - and that's because LAST weekend my husband totally decided to do a marathon binge watching of 13 episodes of Daredevil season 2 because it had just been released on Netflix. Even my daughter asked him why his hair was such a mess after he had sat in the chair for a few hours on end. LOL

I make out better though because I only had my daughter - my son was camping. My husband gets to be responsible for BOTH heehee

Speed SCrap 2016

This will be my first ever speed scrap so any suggestions are welcomed! :-)

I have 6 week old son and a 5 year old daughter that I will be wrangling in the middle of it since my husband is working but we'll make do! So what if we eat PB&J for breakfast, lunch and dinner that week right? My son was in the hospital for the first two weeks of his life so I need a mental break more than a physical one I think!

I'm excited! However, I will be gone for a time on Sat! I am helping with a baby shower for my good friend from Church. But other than that, I plan on getting a bunch of pages done! There's a good and bad to that though...I'm getting low on Disney pages left for my album, and our next trip won't be for another 3 years. Although, I am trying to talk my husband into an Anniversary trip for next summer!

I spent some time today organizing my photos. Pulling out those I still need to scrap and placing them in a new document so they are ready to go!

Next, I need to organize my Disney kits again!

My goal is to finish again this year! I've done the last few years (possibly all of them? I've lost most of the medals between hard drive transfers), so here's hoping to make this one work. I'm working all weekend, though, so I may not make it. I don't have my Sunday schedule yet, but I'm at Disney Junior all day Friday and roving all day Saturday, so I'll be dead-ish Saturday night. Depending on what I get scheduled Sunday, I may try to trade it for a shorter day, because ugh, a 10.5 hour shift the day before is brutal and I'd much rather be scrapping.

Although if anyone is running low on photos and wants some to play around with, let me know! My to-do list easily over 200 pages at this point, and I haven't been able to print books in the longest time because nothing is finished.

Speed Scrap 2016

Last year was my first metal (for completing the minnie marathon since I could only do 10 of 15). I may only be able to do 10 again as I have to work but I'm going to try to get off on Friday. I want to work on my Disney cruise pictures from 2005. Most of that album is done but the cruise part (we spent 10 days in Florida and a Disney land/sea vacation). So that's my goal! Are we only having 14 this year?

I have never done anything like this (on any site), so it is all new to me. Hope I can keep up with everything!

this is my favorite weekend! I have all my photos organized for my April trip, my excel to keep track of what still needs to get done, and working on tagging kits (which I have been doing forever it feels like). This will be a great jump start to my April 2015 album I need to do.

I actually completed last year's, so I'm hoping for a repeat pe for acne this year! I'm hoping there will be extended time to get them done because I'm running myself ragged with my dad being in the hospital and going to rehab starting tomorrow (the joys of being an only child). I'm hoping some of my aunts, uncles and cousins will step in to help out my mom because it's hard doing it all myself.

I also bought a bunch of new kits that I haven't used yet...can't wait to play with them next weekend!

First suggestion is to have fun! Second is that remember the lo doesn't have to be perfect. I often find myself doing the lo for the speed scrap, and then later I might go add another picture if I want to, or changing a title when I've had time to think about it a bit.

Also, if you have pictures organized in groups of numbers so you are ready to choose a 3 picture layout, that helps

I hope you have fun! And yes, sandwiches are fine and you sound like a busy busy Mom. You deserve a break and some fun
