Scrapbooking is my second love. So here is a layout I did recently. I got the title from a magazine article from a Country Living magazine. I used my Cricut Design Studio to create the title and then I cut it out using my cricut.(Love my Cricut)
This is the front of the album decorated with designer papers and a self-made chipboard flower. I also got that idea from another blogger. Using my "Big Shot", I die-cut a flower die that was covered in designer paper. In the center of the flower is a great big jewel that I received in a Rak. The photo corners were made using a punch. The designer papers are Stampinup of course! Now to the inside of this cute project: To the left of the inside cover is a cute giftcard holder. I didn't put a giftcard but just a little notecard. The next panel has a picture of my daughter at the poolside and the the shots that follow show different poses of her in the pool. The last panel to the right has a place for journaling. With the directions given, these are so easy to make. Would you like to make one? Let me know.
Hey there yall from sunny South Carolina. The weather here is sunny yet rainy with all the storms brewing this way. Lots and lots or rain. But I still managed to do a few projects and send them your way. This first one is soooooooo cute. It is an empty clear CD case. I turned it into a mini accordion album using the directions from one of the gal's blogs. Her name is Dawn Olchefske and her blog is http://dostamping.typepad.com. So without further delay, here is the project:

Last month my kids and I visited the "Big Apple". Our trip was a mixture of sun and inspirational. We visited the historic Stanley Theatre and saw a beautiful renovation in person. I hope to up load some of those pictures for you to enjoy. We also visited Chinatown as well as Times Square. The shopping was too crowded for me. I couldn't shop till I dropped. I got a taste of the infamous "dirty hotdog" and some real New York cheesecake. The scenery was very pleasing. Not what I had seen when I was a child. So let's see here we go:
