So it seems like just yesterday I couldn't believe my baby was in Kindergarten. Now I can't believe he is out of Kindergarten! I've already started my list of things to do this summer. But guess what is one of the things Austin wants to do. :) He wants to take an art class! He's already said that he wants to spend a lot of time crafting with mama too. He's so sweet. But don't worry...I'll make sure he plays outside too. :)
I've got a mini album to share with you today. I made it for this contest. Nothing like waiting til the last minute. The contest's last day is today and I sat down and made the album last night. Those Lily Bee papers are ADORABLE and right up my alley! Love those colors! Love the birds and the trees! These papers were made for me. :) And you know how much I love trim so I played around a lot with that too. Here it is:
And I learned a new trick (for me) with making this album. I usually do back-stitching for all my projects. But I wanted my stitching to look good on both sides. So I sewed through once so it looked like this: -- -- -- -- and then came right back through doing the same thing to make it go like --------. Then I tied a little knot (which just adds to the design) and ta da...looks great on both sides. I don't think I explained that very well. Maybe I will type up a tutorial on that. :) Anyways, here are the pages of the album:
I made this album while I was watching "New In Town." Such a cute movie. I was worried that I wasn't going to really like it because I thought it was going to give scrapbookers a bad name. There's scrapbooking in it...did you know that? Well it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be and didn't really bother me at all. No the scrapbooking wasn't like the modern scrapbooking...but it wasn't that bad! So I recommend the movie to any and all. :)
Have a fabulous friday and an awesome weekend everyone!!!
