Archival Safe Photo Protection

I needed to scrapbook a picture from my wedding.  I pulled it out and was shocked.  The plastic from my album had begun to melt on to my picture.  You have to look close, cause the image is bad quality.   I immediately took all the photos out and placed them into a photo safe album.  Only a few were not damaged. 

My definition (not Websters)
     Archival Safe:  Taking all your precious photos and get them out of those OLD albums and magnetic pages (you know the ones from the 60's and 70's) that are not safe for your photos.  Be sure the protectors say "photo safe"  "archival safe"  You want to make sure your priceless photos will not be damaged.  EVER!

Convention Layout Contest

My layout for our Convention Contest.  That's my 1st Grandboy, taken 11 years ago!  I thought this was so approiate for our contest that I took it off another layout!  Using the Stella paper and borders,  I took our Bakers Twine to make a lasso to going around the Dimensional Elements star hovering over the city of Dallas!  The map of Texas was used with our Crusin' paper.  Can not wait until we cruise on in to Dallas!

Full Sized Computer!

Now, while a laptop is not a luxury anymore, to me it is.  This month, anyway!  We are in our little cabin, on the back side of Lake Ouachita, where my hubbie fishes while waiting for turkey season to begin.  While up here, I scrapbook.  Trying to catch up on my blog.  I used my I-Phone.  NOT the same!  The little store "Buckville Country Store", in Buckville, Arkansas, has Wi-Fi along with a FaceBook page!  UpTown!

So here are some of the pages that I have done, so far while on my little "retreat"  Now, I haven't added pictures, but then again, there is the modern convience of a printer!

Definition of the day (not Websters):
     Modern:  Something that you don't normally do without, but when you don't have it, you miss it!

It isn't quite as modern as I thought it would be, cause I can only load these two!  Oh, well.  These two layouts are highlighting our new National Scrapbooking Month paper packet, "Dotty For You"  You can get this packet for only $5, when you purchase $35 in products!

Enjoy and be So Scrappy!

Layout A Day

While I would prefer to be on a Scrapbooking Retreat or a cruise, my rustic little cabin in the woods will have to suffice for this month. (there is no Internet so my trusty little IPhone will be my friend for my blogs) I am on a mission to complete a layout and card per day while my hubbie hopes to bag that Turkey and catch his limit every day! Now all I can hop for is the cook to fix all my favorites while I just relax and scrap all day!

My definition for the day(not Websters):
Rustic: Being on a Scrapbooking Retreat where you are the guest and still having to do all the cooking/cleaning and your by yourself!
