Hope you enjoyed it.  Happy Friday to all, and to all a good weekend.

A little freshening up

I just updated my blog background.  Whadaya think?  I used my own images and a mixture of and Gimp modifications.  Finally, I think I like it.  And, it looks right on my laptop screen.  I think it will be a bit big on my pc, but oh well.  Hope you enjoy the pretty.

Next task,  a new header.

Paper Bag Album

Hello world!  Are you enjoying today?  I hope so!  This moment right now is wonderful for me.  :)  The girls and I are munching on some delicious BBQ chips and sipping some sweet OJ.  They are completely content and therefore, so am I.  Food seems to do the trick for all of us!  Ha!

I wanted to share a sneak peek of the paper bag album that I did for Mystic Paper this month.  Remember, I got the totally yummy Melissa Frances papers, a couple trims, and some cool chipboard shapes?  This project turned out to be a bit massive, so I will get all the pictures together in a slide show for you soon.

I'm also going to do a tutorial on how to create this Gate Folded paper bag album with the paper connectors, so look for that also.  Be sure to hop over and check out Sheri and Jenna's blogs to see their cool paper bag albums which they will post soon.

Hee hee, my older daughter just took a drink of her juice and said, "Mmmm, Rrrrrum punch!"  hahahaha  Gotta love Mary Poppins.  :)

Sigh, I just saw an Angel

I'm working on photos for my paper bag album for Mystic Paper and playing around with Paint.NET

I just had to share this one of my girl.

She is such a happy little girl, but sometimes she looks melancholy in her photos.  The effect seems modelesque to me, sort of "lost in thought."

Hope you enjoy!

Red, White and Bliss

I picked up my June kit for the Mystic Paper design team on Friday.  It was filled with patriotic themed Melissa Frances paper, a couple pretty trims, and some cool chipboard to alter.  Our project assignment this month. . . a paper bag album.

I was so thrilled with the yummy Melissa Frances paper, I started right away.  Then I remembered, "Oh yeah, I need to take a photo of my kit."  That's why this one is such a close up, most of the papers are cut into already.

Jump over to Sheri and Jenna's blogs to see the fun kits they got to create their paper bag albums.
