School Days

Happy Friends with Flair Day.  I want to get a quick post in before I leave for the Easter Weekend.  I was lucky enough to spend a few very much interrupted(by my kids) days scrapping with my partner in crime(and bestie) at my house.  She is a teacher, who off for spring break, so she came over to my house in hopes of getting some scrapping done.  I had hopes she would use up some of my stash.  As usual she rolled out a million pages and I barely finished 4.  Did I tell you my kids were there...that is not a good excuse because even when we go to retreats, kid free, it is the same.  We drove to Utah a couple of years ago for a retreat and in four days she finished 76 pages I did one page and made a mini album in a make and take session.  That was one expensive scrapbook page.  Let's just say I get easily distracted.
