At The Car Wash

Ever wonder what's on a 10 year old kid's bucket list? Well, one day a couple of months ago, Kevin tells me, "Mom, do you know what I REALLY want to do one day?" I had no idea. Go to a favorite band's live concert performance? Vacation in Walt Disney World? Ride some fantastical roller coaster? "What, Kevin?" I ask. "I want to go through a car wash!" he answers. WHAT?! A car wash?! How has he not experienced this? It boggles my mind...both that he has never been through an automated car wash...and that it stands out for him as something not to be missed. LOL! So, a few days later we hop into Julie's dirty car and go. I had to take pictures of this momentous occasion and memorialize them on a scrapbook page:

Not Again!

Another online scrapbook supply store is closing its doors. :(

What to do...what to do? How do I proceed with another DT position eliminated? Without a product to promote or technique to teach, I don't know where to begin! OK...hmmm...maybe with those hundreds of unscrapped photos? Heh-heh-heh.

Without direction, it's sometimes hard to decided what or how to scrap a photo. But these new papers from The Girls' Paperie were enough to fuel my creativity and I finally scrapped these photos from Brendan's high school graduation...May of last year. Mixing things up is my favorite way to scrap, so I was happy to find a use for some of my really old stash in the process. Those ancient letters from Making Memories began my love for chipboard. :D

If there could be a bright side to a store's closing, it would be that Serendipity Scrapbooks is now offering great discounts on remaining merchandise. Check it out HERE.
