Packing stuff............

Ok, as the trip draws near.... JUST 4 MORE DAYS LADIES!!!!!!!!........I am beginning to pack. I have decided that all tools need to fit in my black bag. All of my embellishment cases will fit in the big bag I bought at the Trash to Treasure sale in Jacksonville. I am planning on making a BUTT LOAD of page kits, coordinating my pics with papers, to take along. If I don't get them all scrapped, then I will at least have a head start the next time I set out to scrap. I have printed out my pics from all recent events, and I am trying some new ideas with using wallet size photos to support the one 4x6 photo so I can get more pics on a single page. Has anyone tried this? How did it work out for you? I say all recent events....I hope someone will bring some of the pics from my birthday!!!! All those cameras in my face...and I have not seen a single picture yet!

I bought these 2 13x13" cases from Michaels, they are plastic with a hinged lid, about 4 inches deep. I am planning to lay pics and papers in them, separated by thin chipboard. I thought of using the big ziploc bags, but funds are limited and they are pretty pricey so I am going with what I have. I also have two of those 10 compartment according file thingies that hold 12x12 papers, so I will load those as well. Now...let's see....I have my folding table, my desk lamp, an extension cord, camera, gifts for the girls, snacks, food for the one meal I am preparing, chocolate, clothes, toiletries, DVDs, MP3 player, first aid kit (have you ever traveled with me????) idea books, cell phone....am I forgetting anything? I am so glad our church is letting us use the big trailer to haul all of our stuff in because we will be LOADED to say the least!!!! LOVE IT!
