Basic Grey madness

What do you do when you have an EDO? Besides laundry, ironing, a gym class and grocery shopping, you scrapbook with the new Basic Grey and some of the stash. And get FOUR more pages done from 2002. YEAH!!

You take an oath, you sign on the line, you shake the captains hand and you are in the Canadian Armed Forces Reserve Communications unit! Lots of journalling about this short (and rather miserable) phase of Paul's life.

Ah, I remember the days of 20 people for lunch after church on Sundays - and all the preparations the day before - no wonder I was always stressed! Lots of journalling all hidden behind. And yes there were 20 people here that afternoon.

Using up the stash on this page with a BG background from the new Basic Grey Designer cardstock - I could use a LOT of this!
I wanted to record all the Christmas Eve traditions for the kids to remember.

Allison's 13th birthday (this is the Allison who just got married to Sammy) Celebrate with your best friends - all Basic Grey - June Bug and Designer card stock along with an assortment of BG letters (love em) and one piece of stash - turned the word GLOW from some old We R Memory Keepers chipboard into Blow - cause glow didn't work but blow did! hehe

The June Bug is starting to GROW on me. LOL

Then come back and tell me what you think!

As of 5 pm today I was done 2002...started sorting the 2003 photos and found four more pages of stuff from 2002 - mothers day, Allison's piano recital, me waterskiing, more photos from the Christmas recital...bummer. I might just shelve them and move on to the wedding photos. WAAAAAY more fun to scrap.
