Great American Scrapbook Convention 2010

One of the things I love about the way I scrap is that I never feel pressure about being behind because I don't scrap in order. I tend to just go through my pictures and scrap what I am in the mood to do at the time.

I have been meaning to scrap the pictures of when Linda, Karen and I went to the GASC in 2010 but just got around to doing it. I actually did the layout as part of a one of the scrapbook sketch challenges in Old Cricut Community Facebook Group and well, ya'll know I have been busy and I am just now getting it posted to my blog.

Supplies Used:
Cricut Expression
Cricut Everyday Cartridge
Cricut George Cartridge
Silver cardstock
Various cardstock
I don't remember the paper
MS Word for Journaling
White Gel Pen
Colorbox Chalk Ink

I used Cricut Everyday to cut the title and the scissors. I really do love that cartridge when I am scrapbooking pages about scrapbooking *okie thinks that sounds rather odd but isn't sure how else to say it and is too lazy to contemplate on how to reword that sentence*. It did take a little patience to get the layering right on the title due to my glue wanting to dry on parts of the words before I got them down on the bottom layer but I love the look I got and think it stands out nicely.

I have seen the block journaling many many times over the years and always thought it looked cool but was always either too lazy or to scared to try it...yes I can get scared! *okie rolls her eyes knowing everyone gets scared to try new techniques*. Since my handwriting is atrocious I did mine with MS Word so it would be legible. I liked how I just used key phrases that are easily understood by me, Linda and Karen and will send us into fits of laughter just reading them. I need to realize that journaling doesn't mean you have to write a whole scenario and that sometimes key words work just as well.
