Progressive Scrapbooking

What an insane day! I've seriously got to remember not to over extend myself. I started out at the volunteer orientation meeting at the boys school. It lasted waaay to long. Then off to the hostess club meeting. YIPPEE!! Pick the boys up from school. Then off to get hair cuts - school pictures are Monday. Out to dinner - Chad's out of town (no sense dirtying the kitchen)LOL! Then to Target to pick up pictures through shutterfly. They weren't even there and I put them in last night!!! That stinks and I had to wait forever because they thought they could figure it out! NOT, I had to resend them. Argh!!! Now, I have to get a 2 page spread ready for the paper crafting potluck tomorrow night. I have to clean house. Then, I have to figure out what my October party booking special is going to be. BOY OH BOY!

So, to the fun part of this post! What is progressive scrapbooking? We did it today at the hostess club meeting! I think everyone enjoyed it. At least, I hope so. We started out with an 8 x 8 page, then graduated up to a 8 1/2 x 11 and from there to 12 x 12. That gives you great ways to please any type of scrapbooker!!(Is that a word?)

Before you see these, you need to know something about me. I love to take pictures. If I see something that catches my eye, I'm going to mess with it until I can get something original out of it. So, be prepared!

It is really hard to see some of the details. Just little things that make the whole page really POP! What can you do? I have to say it was tons of fun and a learning experience. My little Mark really indulges my craziness when it comes to pictures. I ask and he says sure mom no problem. So, those are his little feet. Then there are my prints, his inside of mine in the middle and finally his prints. Kind of cool! You'll have to see the pictures in person because they can play tricks on your eyes!!!!

As for TAC supplies:

Stamps - t -2936 fun in the sun, t - 2820 just a note
inks - tt - 220 noir palette ink, tt- 204 seascape palette ink
Paper - r - 2503 Mia's cottage, b - 318 Mia's cottage card stock

Of course, there are a few non TAC items.

Off to clean. YUCK!!!! I forgot, I've got to make a purse some time tonight too. Yikes, what was I thinking?!

Have a FANTASTICAL Friday.

Cute cute CUTE! I've seen progressive pages starting with a 6x6, but I definitely like the 8x8 as a starting point. You've got the knack, girlfriend.

I've never heard of progressive scrapbooking. Cool idea and it looks do-able for those of us who haven't joined the scrapbooking world.
