Fabric Album

I copied this idea off of Elizabeth Kartchner, CK scrapper of the year. I don't have the zutter, which is what she used to bind her album, but I love it the way I did it, and I think the results are great! This one is actually a 5x5, and between the fabric is some heavy cardstock. tfl

Another Challenge

This layout is for another challenge over at Scrap mojo. The guest mojo girl this week is Kerry Lynn. The challenge is to ask someone what they would do with a million dollars, and scrapbook about it, you also have to use a pen/pin somewhere on the page. I asked my daughter and her honesty just gets to me, that girl! If you can't read what she said I'm glad, because I wanted to hide it, we don't think the same way obviously. People can't believe she's my child, but I wouldn't take a million dollars for her, she lights up my life, and makes it a happy one. I love you Jordie...

It's Monday!

Happy New Week everybody. I had such a great week last week at the online crop at Scrapbookers Clubhouse, that I'm afraid I may be a little board this week, starting tomorrow. I started off today having to be a plumber, our lines were full of calcium so we had no water pressure on the cold water side, so my dad and I had to blow out the pipes. This is an ongoing thing that we actually paid a plumber about $700 bucks the first time it happened, but we watched and we learned and we now know how to do it ourselves. It lasted about a year since the last time we did it, which is good. We kinda forgot a couple of things since then and today was a little slow, until the lightbulb went on and we remembered our tricks. After my dad left I noticed the toilet valves in both bathrooms were screwed up and not functioning properly, so I marched down to the Home Depot picked up some new ones and had them replaced in about ten minutes, my husband will be happy that he doesn't have to do that when he gets home, its good to be married to a woman who can do everything! So here's to a peaceful rest of the week for myself and for all of you. I'm now off to do what I really love doing and that's scrappin. Have a great day.

Nothin but fun!!!

If you know me you know what that fun is, scrapbooking. I've been doing it all week, just about non-stop, except to eat and that sorta stuff. I've been over at Scrapbookersclubhouse at the online crop, and lets just say I'm having the time of my life. Those challenges just get me pumped up. Not to mention I get some pages done for my album. Right now I have a rather large stack of layouts sitting on my desk, its great!!!! This layout is from one of the challenges this week.... Have a great weekend, I'm off to create...

Here's my layout

for the scrapmojo contest. The guest designer was elsie, so we had to do a layout featuring a song lyric from the Ditty Bops and doodle on the page. It was so much fun. It looks very much elsie inspired, but she's a great gal to be inspired by.... I chose lyrics from the Angel w/attitude, and they say:
i got a chip on my shoulder
and a halo on my head
im an angel with an attitude
and my favorite colors red

I'm back...

and very tired and grumpy... I just always come back from vacation that way. I thought it was suppose to be relaxing, but I some how tire myself out worse when I'm away. Maybe I should just stay home, I don't get as tired and it doesn't cost anything, it has its perks, and they always say there is no place like home, I must say I agree... Anyway I did have a good time and now I'm back home and back to scrapbookin, which is always a plus... I trust that everyone had a happy and safe 4th, and is enjoying the rest of their summer. Have a great day.

I'm outta here!!

I'm leaving tomorrow for the Riverwalk. You just have to love San Antonio, Tx. There is just something for everyone of all ages. I myself just prefer to chill out on and around the Riverwalk, but there's a zoo, sea world, six flags, shopping and all kinds of good stuff, especially great food... If I'm lucky I'll also check out a couple of scrapbook stores. Everyone have a great 4th..... Shannon
