finally friday

Well, it has been a long week here at our house. The kids were off Monday and Tuesday for teacher professional days and then Wednesday, Thursday and yes again today, Friday, for snow! I love my girls dearly, but am in need of a quiet break, lol! I have been trying to fit some scrapping time in, but haven't gotten too far on my next book. Still deciding on paper and theme. I am thinking I could do one more love book before Valentines day. At any rate, I will be working this weekend and will have something to list on ebay early next week. Speaking of ebay... I am really proud of the album I have listed now, I posted a few photo below (see all the pictures here).

This one took me a great deal of time. Just the cover alone took hours to piece together! I love the lace that goes around the front and back cover. Not sure why I didn't think of that earlier!

This album is very chunky which I love, just full of lots of goodness :0) I am loving the beautiful little charm!

I used a combination of papers trying to get a vintage look. I also added some music notes paper another fave of mine!!

I put lots of gorgeous trim through out the album and added pearls to it one by one, lol!
Alright, I am going to get my girls occupied and escape to the scrapbook room :o)
Happy weekend!!

sweet Valentine listings

I have been busy crafting the last two weeks and using up all of my Valentines products. I seriously have been living in my craft room, lol! Just wanted to share the link to my current listings... the first is a mini album I made with Echo Park's Be Mine line, so in love with this paper :0) Love the colors too, I am so a pink kind of girl!! Here a few photos and you see the the entire album here.

This shabby chic "Forever" page is almost up on ebay (see more pictures here). Love the soft colors and the beautiful blossom, yum!! I have collected quite a few of the "around the edge" punches by Martha Stewart. I love the delicate look of this one!

I have a few more Valentine projects to squeeze in, so keeping watching! Happy scrapping!!

a little love

Well with the holidays behind us, thought is was time to clear my desk of all the Christmas supplies (which I am still in the process of doing). And I know that Valentine's Day is a bit off, but I couldn't help myself -- lol! I really just wanted to work with some new fresh colors :o) Anyway, this is the first album I have done in a few weeks for ebay. Here are a few photos to look at and you can see the rest on ebay here.

I used Pink Paislee's Sweetness paper line... I wasn't sure I was going to love this paper, but was so happy with it and the way the album turned out!

I am in love with these flowers!! The larger ones are the Recollections brand at Michaels, they are just gorgeous and perfect in every way :o)

I added a few Jenni Bowlin butterflies through out the album which then prompted me to go buy a few butterfly punches!!

Love the little mini rose trim from Maya Road, I need to make sure I save some of that for personal scrapping :o)

I will be listing a few more Valentine albums on ebay in the coming weeks and a few new layouts also -- keep watching!
