scrap weekend

even though it doesn't get a lot of attention on this blog, scrapbooking is my thing.
the hobby i give most attention to, you could say.
anyway, some ladies and i like to get together and have these massive crafting/catch up weekends every few months. we've been meeting up to scrapbook since 2007, and yes, we are all in our early twenties. 
erica, danielle, lacie, and i are usually the core, but we have new people join all the time...
[hint, hint, wink, wink]
we pick a date, a house, and dinner and stay inside working on albums all weekend and usually get a ton of layouts done. 
this particular weekend was no exception. i think in total, i put together 17 pages in either my germany album or the most recent album (a.k.a 2011)
 danielle's dining and living room once we got a hold of it.

 just my section of the table.

 love my thickers

 lacie in the craft epicenter

washi tape + pens
my two loves.

some of my favorite layouts from my germany album:
 title page

 please excuse the glare.
as we can see, i am quite the amateur with photographing photographs

one of my most favorites, ever.

and these are some pages i worked on in my most current album
[starting june of 2011]
 title page

above: one half of a layout
below: full layout
 again, picture quality...shameful.
one of my most recent obsessions...the 6x12 page protector.

 fun giants baseball layout with one 12x12 page and one 6x12

funky, jumbled layout.


i'm hoping to post more layouts as i go through the albums, make it a normal thing on this blog.
if any of my local [sacramento] friends scrapbook too and want to join in our little group, let me know! 
we're thinking of having a girls weekend in february :)

lake taheezy

you guys, i'm trying so hard to make blogging a priority. 
i miss interacting with all of you, seriously.
so here is a small recap of our family trip to lake tahoe this past summer.

i think that we can all conclude that my family went to the lake once and otherwise lived at the golf course. this is true. 

not pictured: 
an impromptu beach meet up with the lovely shannon 
familial dance parties
familial apples to apples [drinking] game
me getting loads of scrapbooking done
me walking, walking multiple miles down to the beach, alone, on the lookout for bears.
[this is most noteworthy!]
