Camping Mini Album

I finally finished putting the pictures into this mini album. I started it about a year ago, and now looking at all these camping pictures, makes me long for summer and another season of camping. I hope you enjoy looking at this album, and possibly be inspired to create one of your own. I got my inspiration from this blog:

 Most of the supplies I used were from Close To My Heart. The trees on the front cover were some laser-cut borders I had bought in Cody, Wyoming on our trip a few years ago.

 Lots of little inside pages that are so fun to make.
 The journalling , of course, is yet to be done!

 Little touches that make the page more this case, the holes along the edge of the page.

 It felt a little strange to use some of the shipping boxes that I get my CTMH product in, but I sure love the finished look of the cardboard pages! Goes to show that CTMH is useful in all sorts of areas.

 Paint splatters are also a nice touch for a distressed look.

I think the back cover still looks a little bare. Maybe I will end up adding something to it yet, just not sure what. What are your thoughts?

Thanks for looking at this lengthy post. Hope you enjoyed it and feel free to drop me a comment.

New project complete!

I guess you could call me a Jack (or Jill ) of all trades, and a Master of none! I love doing a bit of every craft there is, I think. I just completed this colorful cool sweater. It is crocheted and was Oh So Much Fun to do! It is a little girl's sweater, size 5, but I'm thinking it looks a little big for that size. I don't have a little girl to fit it one, so I don't really know. It is meant to be a little wide, so it is even harder to tell.

I hope you find this sweater as cute as I do! Too bad I don't have anyone to wear it.

Wedding Preparations

The wedding of our daughter is sure coming up fast! I am busy working on the 2 little flower girl dresses. I decided to use the Close To My Heart Rosette Ribbon for the trim at the waist. It was a perfect match!
