Just Perfect

My all time favorite movie is The Wizard of Oz. I watched it again the week before last actually.  Imagine my surprise when I saw this on Pinterest, pinned via Tammy Higinbottom.

  Its perfect.  And so true.

Do you Pinterest?

Just Ready for the Pictures Now

Happy weekend everyone, hope you are enjoying.

Well, I did it, and I'm thrilled about it.  I finished my DD album on Wednesday, and now, its all ready for the pictures - so psyched about that.  Now, here's hoping I have myself camera ready every day. 

Will be posting the pages out of order, just the way I created them.  For some reason I'm having a terrible time photographing and trying to scan these, so for now, I've a mix of a few.

I left some of the album pages white so they can be full page photos, with white AE  "25 Days of December" overlays, purchased here.

I kept the pages pretty simple, but seriously, can't wait to add more ribbons, clips and stuff once the photos go down.

On some pages, I used  border stickers cut in half and then stuck together back to back, to give the pages a fun, colored edge.

From this album, I've moved on to this one.  I got a SWEET box from my favorite Magpie yesterday and I don't think if was ten minutes from opening my box to getting into my room.

And for now, we're off to a birthday celebration - the little guy has hit ten years old.

Just A Start

Well, I was psyched to find a little chunk of time to get to some scrapping over the weekend - its been too long., and, unlike any other year, I'm finding myself in a Christmas mood in early November.  Blame the DD!!

I decided I wanted to keep the inside a little simple in order to give myself a better chance of following through and completing it this time.  I've still got to add buttons here and there, but its a start.

I started getting "antsy" doing the pages in order and started jumping around - like from page four to 18........still a ways to go though.

I'll post more pages, in order, this week.  

Enjoy your Monday.

Just December Daily

Hey all.  Hope your Halloween was enjoyable.  I was home anxiously waiting for a few trick or treaters and was thrilled when three finally showed up.  That was it.  Three.   I had enough candy for lots more than that, so when they rang the bell at 7:30, I gave each of them a full bag of chocolate.. One had this really cool Scooby-do costume on - Loved it.

So, I'm on board for Ali's December Daily this year.  Its my second attempt, and I hope it works out better than the first - we got flooded out of our apartment for almost three weeks and I never got back to it, so I wanted to give it a go again.

I'm going partially from my stash, using a white 5 x 7 Bazzill Cover All album - yikes - I can't even remember how old that is.............

Lots of fun ways to bind  in this book, which is old, too...........remember this?


Anyway, decided t a o go with a white, mint green, gray and red theme -.

I adored these  mint green and white polka dot adhesive fabric sheets I found on clearance at M's this morning, and things fell into place from there.  Not sure what I'm going to do for numbers yet.........

So, I'm in  my  jammies, gonna have me some soup and salad, and am off to build a book!!!!

Enjoy your Wednesday.
