The retreat will be here before we know it. I am working on the goodie bags and surprises for the event!! I hope you are working on getting those photos organized. Here are some ideas to help you get ready:
- Sort your photos. This is the biggest thing that will help you get the most done. If you narrow down your photos to 8 to 10 of a particular event, then you won't have to do the sorting during scrappin' time. Take the rest of your pictures and put them in a photo album.
- Once you have your photos sorted for each single or two-page spread, begin looking through your papers and embellishments for things that fit the theme or color scheme. If you don't have papers, just ideas, jot them down so you can find these when you get to Scrappy's .
- If you have an idea for title, journaling or dates of the events, go ahead and jot those down.
- Place each set in a large Zip Loc bag (Kroger), or organizer such as the ones we got from Cropper Hopper.
If there is some particular theme you are going to work on, send me an email and let me know so I can be looking for some things for you. I hope these ideas help you to be prepared. So we'll get a lot of scrappin' done!! Oh, these photos are from the Juke Joint Festival in Clarksdale. Bob and I went to a couple of weeks ago. It was quite an experience and we got some great pictures.
