I bought this 8×8 scrapbook almost four years ago and have just now begun filling it.
Ah, memories. I remember exactly where I found it: in a Target store in Bloomington, Indiana when I was traveling in the big truck with Dave. This was before I had “officially” moved down here; most of my stuff was still in Michigan. I remember there was a mall behind the Target — a rare treat while traveling with Dave (shopping!) — and I bought a cookbook too. ***[I should say, this is a game Dave and I play sometimes. I’ll name some characteristics of or events that happened in a city we drove through and he will help me remember where we were. It is surprising how much we remember.]*** While in Bloomington, we shopped at a whole foods store (Dave bought Kohlrabi) and ate at a Chinese restaurant. 🙂
Scrapbooking? Oh, yes. Sorry about that.
So I’m finally using the album. I decided last year that it would make a perfect album to showcase the crafts we made for the church bazaar. Every item had its picture taken and I wanted to scrapbook them, but didn’t want them in my family album. Now that I’m feeling a little more caught up on other things, I decided to start on this project as well. Last year I bought some of October Afternoon’s “Modern Homemaker” collection of scrapbook paper and stickers and I think it works really well for this.
Here is the title page:
I love these Thickers alphabet stickers, but didn’t have an “r”, so I used an upside-down “j” (without the dot).
The sun and cloud are ki memories “puffies” stickers — Happy Day. They are so cute!
And here are the next two pages, titled “salt dough.”
The chipboard stickers get way cooler than this. I can’t wait to use more of them!
The yellow baker’s twine is by Jillibean Soup.
I also made a birthday card today, but I don’t want to ruin the surprise for someone very special, so that will have to wait! See you tomorrow! 😉
