Hi! Come on in and look around!

Welcome to my window on the world. A snapshot of my life and experiences. I'm a photography junkie and a scrapbook addict. I capture it all here, and share my journey down this amazing road called LIFE with you!

My Club Scrap Retreat project

This is just a sampling of the handstitched album I made after I got home from my Club Scrap 2005 Retreat last August. I started the album while I was there. We made the album itself on Thursday night with Terri Zwicker. I was so tired. I could hardly keep my eyes open!!! Then I started putting all my memorabilia that I collected into the album while I was there, during any spare time. When I got home, I added photographs. I have more photos to enter of my new friends, which I saved pages for. This is just all the "stuff"...I will be adding the rest of my CS retreat pics this weekend. Hope to post those on Monday!! WHEW! The box is a custom made box for the album that we made in class. I embellished the box with the stamps we got in our kit and with letters my friend, Jen, cut from her Wishblade for me. I had a lil too much to drink that night and I lost the "c"...so it says Club Srap...oh well!

My Blog Goal for 2006

Well, on one of the boards I frequent, they asked our scrapbooking goals for the year. I just have two because I don't think I could take anymore! Goal 1: Organize my godforsaken scrap room mess. I keep saying that, and I have made a tad bit of progress. Goal 2: Post on my blog the pages and projects I create. I made about 14 pages over the Christmas holidays, and I want to get those posted. I am going scrapping this weekend. I'm going to take my camera and photograph every page I do and get them posted when I get back. It's so easy now that I have my digital camera. I really have no excuse not to post them!

Boxes from 12x12 paper

Okay, here is some work I did over the holidays. Shame on me for not posting, but my electronic bonanza was not working and I couldn't get anything uploaded PLUS I just didn't have alot of time! These boxes are both made from ClubScrap paper. One is from their written word kit NOV 05 and one is from the Musical Interlude kit DEC 15. Each box uses 2 pieces of 12 x 12 paper. All you do is fold and glue for each piece. The bottom piece will be 1/4" smaller than the top. I inked the edges with the ink that was included with the particular kit. I also used a sticker from each kit. The purple box has some MM foam stamps on it too, to decorate the corners. While the are not fancy, they are boxes made from paper. I think they are totally cool! What to put in them! LOL!

Secondly I am posting my favorite pictures that I took over the holidays. My ds was fishing with my dd when the sun was going down. I love the colors of this time of day. They are so rich. I love the way the light is hitting him, the water, and his concentration as he baits his hook. The photo of my dd was taken when the sun was setting, thereby getting the lucsious gold tones. The angle of the photo had the light from behind making my dd's hair just glow. Yes, I should have used a fill flash, but we can't be perfect all the time!
