Happy Leap day ladies! I heard that AMR is adding one more member to it’s DT from the previous finalists. Next Saturday there is a March Kit reveal, new DT member announcement, an online crop, where I’m hosting a challenge posted at 9-10 pm eastern and Stacey has another announcement.
So here is the extent of my scrapbooking madness, as if you didn’t already know. I am part of a circle journal group and the current month’s circle journal theme is sweet treats. we are to share a recipe, take a picture of the recipe and scrap it. This would have been done and out the door to the mailbox on February 15th, if I hadn’t been so caught up with Valentine’s day, our anniversary, Troy’s birthday, oh, and making 15 projects for Concroption.com DT challenge. SOOOOOOOO, last night I made a chocolate pound cake, just so I could take a picture of it, just so I could scrap it, just so I could do my circle journal entry. IS that madness, or what? atleast the cake was super yummy, all the boys enjoyed it… and I took some in for the teachers at Jalen’s school.
My van has been acting up, I have had to jump start it a few times now and yesterday was the worst. I had to jump start it twice, once to take Jalen to school and another time to pick him up. Today was Parent teacher conferences at his school and I knew I didn’t want to be trying to get a jump start at the school. So my sweet hubby drove down to the autoparts store this morning and got me a new battery and installed it. We were heading out the door to the school and I knocked my favorite travel coffee mug off the counter and broke it. I swear I have the worst luck with those things. either they end up leaking on me or I break them, or they crack or whatever. but the cup was full of coffee that was now spreading across the kitchen floor. Troy says, just go to your appointment, I’ll clean this up. He is such a sweetheart!
When we got home from the conferences, I am thinking I am going to scrap my circle journal project… but I casually log into concroption.com to check out the gallery/swatches/february to check out the status. and I see that Kimmy, the super scrapper extrordinaire has made 17 projects! hmmm I think, do I scramble and make more goodies today? or do I just concede her victory, after all she did do a good job.
Here are my projects:
You have seen flat joscie…(if you have not see her here) and know she’ll be travelling the world soon… and she needs a travel journal to document her travels. so here it is. a 6 x 12 journal. I cut the chipboard and kraft cardstock to 6×12 and bound it all with my favorite bind it all tool… the covers are Teresa Collins Bella Girl Paper and inside is a journaling card from her journal it line. CHipboard letters are scenic route (love them!) and they are inked with color box chalk ink and a prima hydrangea.
this is a mini year in review for 2007. it is black cardstock cut to 6×6 and uses Teresa Collins journal it papers (the blank calendars), and damask. color box charcoal ink. HEidi Swapp chipboard numbers. Making Memories glittered chipboard flourish. Stampin’ Up Notebook punch, alphabet stamps. sewing machine, thread and pinking shears. 7 gypsies gaffers tape. :) I didn’t take pictures of all the pages … they are very similar and not filled up yet, so be looking for the completion down the road.
ALL BOY… a 12×12 layout on black bazzil. 7 gypsies gaffers tape. Teresa Collins Journal it paper. Autumn Leaves letter tabs. HEidi Swapp chipboard letters. sewing machine, thread, pinking shears. Making Memories chipboard bracket, buttons. pigment pen. also, after i took this picture, the letter tabs were lifting, so i zigzagged some across the bottom. :)
I got my bind it all from Bonnies Best in georgia. we ordered them and had them shipped to MIL and she drove it down to FL last summer. http://www.bonniesbest.com/
YOU can also get one from Stacey at AMR http://allmomentsremembered.com/osstore1/product_info.php?cPath=49&products_id=403
and I finished my chocolate cake layout… I need to photograph it and get that posted here. and the result of my making these three things today means I didn’t submit for Becky’s sketch.
