Canvas Beloved Album

Sometimes I wonder why it takes me so long to do some projects and some I can do in a flash!  Seems to me like the ones I actually have instructions for are the ones I procrastinate with.  I wonder if that has something to do with following rules?  Maybe I'm not a rule follower.  Hmmm....

Well, here is a finished project that I started from my class with Donna Downey from back in June.  See I really was procrastinating.  I decided to make this album with photo's from my daughters ballet recital since the colors went perfectly together.  Here's the outcome.  Sorry about some of the photos, this was hard to take pictures of because of the size and color variations.

I'm so excited because Donna Downey will be coming to our local scrapbook store A Scrapbook Store and More in January to teach a few classes.  I can't wait.  She's so much fun.
If you are interested I'd love to see you there. :)
Thanks for stopping by.

What to make with leftovers.....

When I have bits and pieces of scrappy goodies leftover I just can't seem to part with them.  You know those little squares from those fun papers and that one single sticker or flower that hasn't been used?  I like to challenge myself to use up those things and make a mini with them. 

I had this little tag chipboard book lying around and had been wanting to use it but just couldn't get myself to.  It's small, like 3x4 or somthing like that so it was going to be a challenge for me.  I went for it anyway.  I started with printing out the photos.  This way I knew I had to finish it because the pictures were ready to go. It worked, it's done.  Here's the outcome.  It really ended up being quite chunky.  You'll see lots of odds and ends in here.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you have a great week!
