Lessen my LOAD....

I read a lot of blogs, but have recently gotten a bit behind.  Well today I thought I'd go to some of my favorites and see what's been going on.  One of these blogs is Joy's Obsessed with Scrapbooking.  Here I learned (just today...nothing like pre-planning for me!) about the Layout a Day class, or LOAD Challenge.  You can find out more about this online class HERE.

Now, I am not going to give you a play-by-play of this class.  You can click on the link and see if it's something you're interested in.  I did call up a scrapbooking friend and ask her to check it out, because I know if I have a partner in crime I'm more likely to work harder at it!  So, Laura and I have paid our $30 and signed up for the LOAD 212 Challenge.  It would be awesome to get to the end of February and have 29 layouts complete, but honestly, if I have 10 done I'm still going to be happy.  Trust me...that is 10 more than I would have done.

Another scrappy friend, Toni, has also joined the challenge.  That's 3 wild and crazy Mom's ready to make some scrapbook pages.  I think we'll have to get together at least one night during the month of February, work on a few pages, and maybe even drink a little wine.  Wow...this challenge is looking better by the minute!!!
***END of Exciting UPDATE***

You might be thinking "$30 for an online she nuts?", and yes, I am a bit, but that's unrelated here.  I think $30 isn't that bad.  I probably spend more than that in a month on scrapbooking supplies that I have yet to use, so why not spend the $30 and maybe I'll get moving on the scrapbooking again and use some of those supplies that I'm hoarding saving for a rainy day.

So, tomorrow it begins.  29 layouts in 29 days.  Like I said, I'm not going to feel like a big failure if I don't get 29 done.  Maybe I'll go crazy and get 32 done.  Or, (more likely) maybe I'll get 18 done.  Either way, it's more than I did last year, and quite possibly the year before that combined!  The kids LOVE seeing scrapbook pages filled with the fun and crazy times of their life, so even if each of them have 5 new pages to look at at the end of February, it will be $30 well spent.

Watch for progress on how I'm doing!
