OK has this ever happened to you - you do a post you are just about finished and you realize that it hasn't been saving and your internet goes out? Yep lost the whole thing and here I am again rewriting the whole post! Arrggg!
But I digress...
Wow! I cannot believe Christmas is right around the corner and I am completely disorganized! Now really, those who know me know that I am so organzied about Christmas, until now! Normally I am finished with all of my Christmas shopping by Thanksgiving! I haven't even made my cards! :0! I just started shopping LAST WEEK! :0!!! I am not just slacking, really I have just been super busy. I took over a big project for someone else and ended up with one week to put together a Christmas production for a community choir for (over 50) kids! Well, we are almost done- a week from today we have our last performances! It has actually gone quite well! The kids have done a fabulous job! Between this and "An Act of Praise" (the youth choir/drama team I direct) we have had performances every weekend! It will feel good to take a break! In addition to this our own children have had (and still have) various performances with schools (did I mention I have 5 kids! LOL! ) The good thing is that I have been busy all year doing various scrappy projects that I can give to family! This is one of those projects!
All of the papers in this mini album are from Websters. These papers have so much character that makes it so much fun to use! I love cutting up this paper! I added lots of Stickles, tiny Prima roses and bling. I used Alcohol inks on the acrylic edges and chalk ink on the paper edges. Lots of little flaps and hidden compartments in this book.
Other products I used are from Making Memories(metal), Basic Grey (rub ons), Fancy Pants (glitter die cuts), Heidi Swapp and Kaiser (bling). Paper edge punches are Martha Stewart and the acrylic book is actually from several books by Scrapwerks.
Here is another project. I cut the snowflake with my Cricut and embossed it with my Cuttlebug. I cut out the bird, berries and leaves from the Websters paper. I used Glossy Accents to make them shiny and added a little glitter.
Oh and one more thing, what are you doing on New Years Eve??? Yes it is coming up soon and I am way past going out on New Years Eve so this is what I will be doing...
I am also way past staying up all night, and you don't have to do that to be a part of this fun crop! LOL! Well, unless you want to ;) Hope to see you there!
