I've never claimed to be a writer, but it's nice to have a place to put my thoughts down once in a while.


Sunday Scrappin' #3

Okay, I missed Sunday #3 and here it is almost #4. I've been sick the past week and haven't touched a computer until last night. And even then it was for just a few minutes to check email.

So, on to my TaDa's...
I finished Savannah's book, all except the journaling and I picked out all the color schemes for the rest of the books. I realized I needed to do two more books but I don't have any more of the princess albums, so I'm improvising. I had picked up a couple little kits for the ideas and embellishments. The book itself is about 12 pages, approx. 6.5" square, stitched in the middle. I took off the birthday theme cover and replaced it with one of my own. It's not the same size or shape as the others, but it has the same number of pages and I'll treat it the same. As for the other extra book, I decided to try my hand at making my own. Using the dimensions of the Princess album, I took a piece of cardboard and scored it to fold into book form. Then I covered it with a dark green laid cover stock. I'll add pages just as I did the original books.
I was really impressed with myself for getting this much done, before Friday no less!

My To Do's....
To keep on keeping on. I'll give you a "so far this week". Since I was feeling better last night, I stayed up working on the books. I spent an hour or so this morning as well. So, I've got all but one book with pages glued in and ribbons attached. Each girl's name I had already cut out from my friends Scizzex fun alphabet and is attached on the inside front cover. I've got paper cut to the page size for each girl's theme/color/pattern. I'll probably try to use Savannah's book as a template and do each girl's book similar to it, just to be able to get as much done as possible in the little time I have. I'll finish up the last girl tonight and hopefully start laying out the actual pages. I'm meeting some friends on Saturday for a Scrapping/Stamping/Cardmaking day so hopefully I'll be able to get a lot done.

Bonus Question:
I missed the question for #2 so I'll answer it first. My favorite at the moment is scrapping. I have more tools/supplies for it.
This week's question: Yes, the books I'm working on right now for my girl's at church. I had planned to make a card set for a family gift swap, but I'm not sure about that now. Maybe I'll be able to do something on that on Saturday.

Thanks for reading and I apologize if I didn't make too much sense. (Let's blame it on the medication.)
Happy Scrapping!
