lookin forward to continue on with this most awesome project for courtney...stay tuned for more layouts to come as it develops!!!!
Tuesday, April 24, 2007
the next few pic's are a layout i did of courtney and her good pal rachel from school! i took the girls out for a few days last summer to our cottage and we had some great weather with lots of swimming...hence lots of fun swimming pictures of course!!
i made the fold out mini album out of a sheet of 12 x 12 paper scoring one side at 4" and at 8". rotate once to the right and score again at 4" and 8" and then you simply cut the 4 courners out and fold it up however you want to do it!! this is a fun idea if you only want to do a one page layout but have lots of picures to use up. i just used a whack of glue dots to attach it right on the OUTSIDE of the page protector so people looking at it can have easy access to check it out without having to slide the page out to get to the mini album!!
..still loving to paint...
foam stamps of any kind are a playful way to add a textured touch to your pages and projects!
this one of courtney was so much fun to do!! not only was it a stroll down memory lane but i got to play with more paint and a new HS mask!! she was only 2 years in these pictures...sob!
and this last one was a real struggle to start with...but i love the finished product! i tried out the new Chatterbox Doodle Genie ( breezy ) and started with penciling in the stencil. then i went over the pencil lines with a medium marker, then i wasn't liking how 'thick' the lines were looking so i added a few more free hand doodles with the marker and colored some in....once i added the photos and 'bling' to it i started liking it more!!! fun new toy to try out...what will they think of next???

and what would i ever do without my mike? he's so good, too good, to me. he helped load up both our vehicles with stock and fixtures and hauled it all out there with me and then hung around another 4 hours with me to help me set up my store the night before the function!
i'd be lost without him...thank you soooo much honey for all your support and no complaining!!! heehee
heeheehee...i caught my mom shopping in allison's brads and eyelets....

only 3 more sleeps until Scrapaganza.
i have been sooooo busy preparing and planning for this event and now it's just around the corner...
sorry i haven't blogged in a while.
see, TARA got herself a nice little blog happening and wanted me to 'leave comments' like all of us bloggers do, but she is on MY SPACE so in order to leave a comment, you have to sign up. so, after her pleads of 'it will only take like 2 minutes...' and almost 4 hours later of "pimping my profile' i now have a SECOND profile and blog on myspace as well...i posted a couple easter blogs if you want to catch up!
if you feel like catching up on anything, like more info on scrapaganza as well, check this out! i even have music and a photo slideshow on it!
THIS blog however, i will remain ever faithful to!!! i will be posting some photos tomorrow of what i've been 'up to' for preparations for scrapaganza, and i also did a new layout using Chatterbox's new 'doodle genie's'...too cute and fun!!
well, off to do more work...i'm soooo hyped for saturday's event!
on another note, courtney ALSO has a big day on saturday...another dance competition! she missed her march one due to a 2 week long flu bug, but, she's back in action! her dance teacher offered me a long time ago to take courtney friday night for a sleepover and to be her 'mom' for the day at the competition as she knew i wasn't planning on entering this one because of my event. she said she wanted to do it for all the work i do for her as a favor returned!!! she can be so sweet...so, we'll see how it all goes..i will be thinking of her all morning until i get that phone call with a 'hi mom' from her after the competition!!! good luck Punky!!!! i love you!
