Catching Up, Day 8

This is the last day of catch up! I am hoping, but the time this gets around to posting, that I will have more to share. I have some other stuff I still need to get done, before I can scrap again-I have a couple fan fic chapter I have to finish editing for someone, a crop to finish planning, and a RAK list to fix and get sent out. I hope to get that all done in the next couple days, so I can do some scrapping, and God forbid, read some of my stories that I have been ignoring for 2 weeks. How can someone who doesn't work, be so busy? Oh, yeah right...That would be facebook, Twitter, message boards, etc. Anyhow, on the scrappy goodness!
