Album Covers

So for some reason I decided I should make new covers for my albums instead of paying good money for something I could do myself. So far I have made 2 for Daniel & 2 for Nicola, & I think I may have created a rod for my own back!!!! LOL!! I have been using by left over sewing supplies as well as scrapping stuff. The fabric is mod podge glued onto the covers. Some fabrics worked better than others. For some reason I quilted one of Nicola's with beads & sequins, it's really cool, but it took me about a week! I want to get back to scrapping!!!! This all started cos Scott suggested I should put my pages in chronological order, which was a great idea as they are all over the place at the moment. It's really interesting looking back at how much the kids have grown & how much my style has changed.

"If you go into the woods today you're sure of a big surprise....." (Yes, I know it's the teddy bears picnic song, but it works with this pic) When I was a kid i used to think the smurfs lived in the reserve near our house, so look what Scott did for me! I want more!

The kids got their faces painted at Harvey Norman today. Don't they look cute! I was really impressed with the face painting & balloon people & it was free!

Nicola's 4!

Yes I know it was a couple of months ago, but I just did the layout. Personally I'm proud I did it before she turned 5! Used my $2 shop felt flowers & the paper I used to make her goodie bags out of.

This is what Scott & the kids got up to when I was at Scrap Camp. They went to the zoo! This page has had me stumped for awhile, I really like the photo, so wanted it to be special. I used the TLC rub-on toppings that I got at camp. Not overly impressed with the foil, glitter is cool & I haven't tried the flock yet. I also dry embossed the papers with scales (I wish I had a cuttlebug!), very time consuming & hard on my RSI.

Daniel is 8!

Yesterday was the big birthday party. The boys had a great time eating & playing PS3. Then I took 7 boys to see Speed Racer at the local movie theatre. It was a mission to keep them all quiet & in their seats. Was a fun movie tho & they all enjoyed it.

Finished my Stampin' Up! layout. At the demonstration we did a 8x8 so i have made it into a 12 x 12.

Stampin' Up!

Went to a Stampin' Up! party last night. Their stamps are so cool, but not cheap! I only got 2 jumbo roller stamps (& handle) 'so swirly' & 'scattered sunshine'. They will be here in about a week, can't wait!! Also 'want' all of the new Cricut cartridges out at NZS, hehe.

Ain't he handsome!

My beautiful big boy! He turns 8 next Tuesday, man that makes me feel old! LOL!

Big thanks to Danice for telling me how to resize the photo to go on web.
