Duct Tape Wallets

Now I'm officially addicted to duct tape. SO many fun things to make, including a super cute women's wallet!

Just Craftin' away!

I have lots to share but when it comes to taking pictures of the crafts I've been doing, that's where I get meh about it all because I don't have a good light area in our house for picture taking so then I end up not posting. Not a good excuse, I know. No matter what, I decided to post anyway. :)

I am most excited about Week in the Life that starts next week. This will be my 3rd year following along with Ali Edwards and I just love it. You document all the little and big things that happen in the week once a year. Even what you ate, listened too, everything. Believe it or not, it's the routine, mundane things that are really fun to recall years later. Stuff you would never remember. By the last day, Sunday, I'm pretty much pictured out, but it feels so good to have that whole week documented and an album done. Nothing fancy, unless you want it to be. This is the first year where I have pre-made my album. Although it works for others, I've discovered that I really don't like the regimented "spots" for pictures, like you need 4 4x6 horizontal photos and 2 4x6 verticals each day, etc. That really stresses me out because I never have enough of a certain size or the right direction of the photo. So this year my album is completely open. It's an 8 1/2 by 11 ish album bound by my Zutter Bind-it-all. No pre-designed sections for pictures or words, whether I have 10 pictures for that day or 1, it will all work. And I can add more pages if needed. Here are some pictures of the album, tags and pockets that I created.

If you aren't already, join in and do Week in the Life. So fun!

Life on the Scrap Beach Challenge #5

Challenge #5 was to do a page/project about home. I printed out some smaller pictures of around our home and found a mini album that was just right for it. This album is the Door Plate Album from Basic Grey. This was definitely the fastest I've ever completed a mini album, one day! Woohoo!

Life on the Scrap Beach Challenge #4

Challenge #4 was to use an unfinished kit. I defnitely have plenty of those!

Life on the Scrap Beach Challenge #3

Here is my entry for Challenge #3 which states that NO FLOWERS can be used. That's pretty hard to do, considering I had a few cute July 4th themed flowers, but I still like how it turned out. :)

Life on the Scrap Beach Challenge #2

Katheryn from The Scrap Beach (I'm obsessed with her Ustream classes) had six challenges this weekend and here's my entry into Challenge #2. You had to do a LO using the gallon, quarter, pint design.

Mom & Me layout

I recently found the picture on the left of my mom and knew I had one similar from when I was that age as a flower girl too. While completing this page today, I realized we were both the same age at the time we were flower girls and we were both in our Aunt's weddings! Similarities in life are so amazing.
