Blogger's Challenge

WOW! Can you guys imagine I have not posted or stamped since Monday. Yikes, that is crazy. It has been a crazy week. We had a family emergency that has consumed most of my time. Also my son went back to school yesterday and we had some last minute things to do to get ready for that. And of course I wanted to spend the last few days doing things with him. The beginning of school always makes me so sad--the school will have him more than I will for the next months. And they will pretty much dictate most of our nightly activities--homework, shower, dinner, and boom before you know it you need to get them to bed and start again in the morning. Well, such is life. I am still going to be a bit busy the next few days with the family emergency thing but it is almost over. But since I actually made this on Sunday I do have a post for today's Blogger's Challenge --this week we are to create a baby theme project. I found this adorable (wedding) album a few months back at the dollar store and bought a bunch of them. They are really think chipboard books that I know would be fun to alter. I used a whole bunch of retired stuff and stuff that was just laying around my studio for like "ever". Hope you enjoy it.


Here is the cover.Page 1

Page 2-3 as you can see on a few of the pages I did not add photo mats to leave a little more freedom of picture sizes.

What a fantastic scrapbook Mary Jo! I'm with you about school...it is sad that they are there longer than we get to have them. It's so hard to let them grow up! I guess the good news is with time flying by, it'll be Thanksgiving Break before we know it...lol! :D
