Happy Thursday everyone! This week has been a crafty one for us. PA Me and the Inner Hoarder have been encouraging Creative Me to go to town! Anything to avoid the Memorabilia, because (to quote Becky, a fellow blogger) “Holy memorabilia, Batman, that’s a lot of stuff!” However, at one point, OCD Me and the POW did try to dive in…so that Creative Me could make a Memorabilia Week layout.
Lesson Learned: The only thing worse than ignoring your memorabilia…is looking through it. Two hours later, stuff is spread out in piles everywhere, the brain is full of nostalgia and stories, and nothing is purged. However, we did find some stuff with which to create our layout…once again procrastinating, and once again letting Creative Me go to town.
This was actually a pretty quick layout to make! Fabulous Spouse won the office pool for the company tickets (Club Level with paid parking!!!!) for the last game of the season. Four photos, plain blue cardstock base and memorabilia! Memorabilia used: winning e-mail printout, program cover, tickets, newspaper 12th Man insert. Scrapping the old school way!
Confession though, we did save a program (not the one from which Creative Me removed the cover for the layout) because it was the game that clinched the division title. Yes, my name is Scrappnbee, and I have a problem. The POW did recyle the used program though. That means that there is still a chance that we will not end up on that Hoarders Burried Alive show...maybe.
The big plan is to get some more Iris Clamshells, label them each with a child’s name and fill it for the school year (I’m telling you, buy stock in Iris. We will personally keep them afloat). Currently, they are on sale, so it gives us an excuse to schedule a lunch date with Fabulous Spouse. Besides, if we buy them…Fabulous Spouse will make sure that the POW knows that they NEED to be filled and not sit empty in the scrap room. Will try to post on Sunday, with a memorabilia layout from Fabulous Spouse's trip to Iraq. Think that we can get it done? Besides, there is always next round! LOL!
