Hey everyone! Wow- time is zipping by
and I don't know where it is going!
If you have been following my blog for long, you may know that
I had my Tonsils removed the middle of September last year.
It was a much longer recover than I had anticipated!
But what really knocked me off my feet was that, at the very same time,
my very best friend of 40 years passed away unexpectedly. When I got home from
the surgery center, I had a voicemail saying that she was in the hospital. She
never left. And I never got to see her or even say good bye because I had just had surgery
and she was ventilated until she died. She had stage 4B Cancer- and we never even knew she
was sick. I have had a very difficult time getting through this and I am just now getting back
to kinda normal. Almost normal. Some days anyway.
I am glad to be back and hope to be blogging and crafting like I used to!
Anyhoo- Today I want to share a new project with you,
it is a new class at The Crafty Scrapper on Feb 1, 10:30am $40
Please contact the store directly to reserve your spot. And the
spots are going fast too, so I would call early!
I love the MR Chipboard Memory Binder for this- and I used a Faux Leather technique on the cover.
Very Westerny (that is a word here in TX you know). I used a Spellbinders die, Tear-ific-Tape
and Sparkle N Sprinkle glitter to create the frame behind the title.
The inside of the covers were distressed to look like leather as well.
I used Bella BLVD papers though out- when I saw these papers at CHA I knew
I had to make a girly western album with them!
How cute is the blue paisley!!! Love it! I created a pocket and tucked
two tags into it for photos and journaling.
I added eyelets to a tag to form an extra page- lots of spaces for
journaling in this cute little album
To finish the album off I added some Maya Road Paper twine and some jute to the spine.
Frilly, but western at the same time :)
This little album has 10 pages, 2 pockets and 4 double sided tags!
I was only able to make 15 kits - so if you are wanting one,
be sure to call early to reserve yours.
Thank so much for stopping by today.
If you are looking for the Sparkle N Sprinkle layout with the slipper-
well, I got my Sundays mixed up and it doesn't reveal until NEXT Sunday. So sorry.
