This year I am taking the Ali Edwards class 'One Little Word'. Which got me to thinking.....so I never keep my resolutions but I am good at working toward specific goals. So my one little word should be broad enough to cover all my goals but specifc enough for me to stay focused. So what is my one little word for 2011....RENEW.
I am hoping to renew my mind, body, soul and attitude in 2011. This means lots of reflecting on myself and those around me. I love change and I hope that my one little word can help me to make some of those tough changes that need to be made in order for me to move forward and become a better me. Thus helping to renew my mind, body, spirit and attitude this year.
thanks to my new part-time job at my LSS, the one and only Scrappy Boutique I have been able to get a lot more scrapping done this summer. I love creating sample layouts for the store. Look at what I created with the Cosmo Cricket Snorkel line which we re-ordered just for summer. I love this line the colors are so bright and fun to work with.
Here is another layout with Imaginisce - Splash Dance Line
Well it's about time I had a chance to BLOG. School is winding down and I am hoping to get a lot more scrapping done over the summer. Being a teacher is a tough job, but it's a job I love.
So here is my Midnight Oil Scrapbook Designs May DT project. I made this mini-album using the Build a Book shaped chipboard pages. I saw a mini album on another site using the same Basic Grey colors so I decided to give it a try. Mini albums are not something that I do often, but this one was fun to make. I decided that once it was finished I will give it to my friend Amy who just got back from her first road trip, that way she can document some of her adventures. Well I hope you enjoy my mini album and I will be back to post more projects soon!
Here is the cover.
First two pages. Love the BLING and prima flowers.
I used the EK Success shape punches for the swirls.
I cute the little birdies out and pop dotted them.

Just in case you need a reminder, here is a list of everyone participatin in the BLOG HOP:
I know that we recently on the forums at Cookin Up Creations we talked about trying new techniques. So with the May Arts Ribbon I wanted to think outside the box and my mind wondered back to a scrapbook class when I learned to make ribbon flowers for my layouts. I decided to Google it and found a video. Guess by who? May Arts!
I used this one on a birthday cards. I really hope you guys will try this, it was lots of fun and very easy! Sorry it looks squished, I scanned it because I could not get a very good picture with my camera.
I am so in love with the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses paper line (actually I love all things BG!). Too bad we don't get snow in Florida...snow pictures would be fabulous with this paper. These are some of the cards I created in my BG card class at Scrappy Boutique. I added a few extra things like stickles, stamps and BLING!
