Feeling Preppy + A Class of 2014 October LOAD Sponsor!

091114 calendar

We are three weeks away from the start of Class of 2014 LOAD! Yikes – how did that happen so quickly? As promised I wanted to share a quick & easy idea for your pre-LOAD homework aside from the obvious & needful adhesive/cardstock/frozen dinner stocking up/clearing a space on our scrap desks frenzy :~)

I propose that we take a week by week approach.  3 x 10 = 30 things ready in our backpacks. Now don’t panic because there is a little math problem here, lol! I figure that there are three basics that jump start our little scrappy hearts, namely photos, stories & supplies.

Starting this week lay in a supply of ten photos/groups of photos that you would love to get scrapped. That’s 2/day with the weekend off! Next week ten stories (you may want to make notes while going through your photos) & finally the week before school starts sift through your stash for ten goodies.

The bonus is that you will have a recent review of your photos & supplies. And it’s a lot more fun than cramming on the day of the prompts.

And now some really EXCITING news!
