Hello! Long time no see! I told you my new hobby is you can see in the picture I am not the only one! These 2 squirrels were napping when I grabbed my camera. Cute!! Haven't been doing a lot of crafting lately. Hope you still stick with me though! I officially have an empty nest. My eldest moved out. He was never home so I didn't think I would miss him but I do...its very quiet around here! (if you click on the picture you can get a closer view of the squirrels!)
Saturday I took a class on this neat Graphic 45 box. We used the Old Curiosity Shop papers. LOVE it! Inside is a pull out scrapbook. Of course I added some extra "Pam" touches to it when we got home. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Graphic 45 lately! Their new baby collection is so adorable! I cant wait to make my friend a small album. She just learned she is gonna be a Grandma. She is over the moon! I want to make her a special book just for her.
Tomorrow I have a post all ready to go. I picked 2 cards out of my stash. Hopefully I haven't shown them to you already. I really will get back to cards soon...I am just having fun doing other paper crafts... Have a wonderful day!

Some of the photos are a little light and out of focus...sorry! I have to figure out what the problem is. When it comes to that stuff...oy vey!

I made another toilet paper tube mini album. Didn't start out to have more butterflies but that's how it ended up... These are so much fun to make! I am going to start another one this afternoon. Yesterday I attended the funeral of 10 yr old Kayla Allen.I did not know her personally but ever since the devastating night her father went on a rampage and killed her mom & sister at a local restaurant, she has been on my heart. Her father also shot her but she survived. The police killed her father. She originally started to get better but then took a turn for the worse after she learned her Mom, Dad & sister were all dead. With that information and the loss of 1/2 her face I am grateful the Lord took her home. I have been talking back & forth with the Mom's best friend regarding their pets. She is so devastated. I am going to make her a little album that she can keep some pictures of them and am going to add some encouraging words or scripture. I hope it brings a little comfort to her soul. Such a sad, sad story.
Can you believe that Memorial Day is just around the corner?! Where does the time go? Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!

I didn't forget about you all. Just been very busy. The days just fly by!!
The cards you are seeing are cards for my next months class. I had a request for a graduation card. I just love this little House Mouse and I added a little cap with a tassel. The purple card is one we are going to do to learn how to make stick pins for your card. That is addicting! I have made about 20 so far. There are so many beads in the stores to chose from! I especially like the shiny, sparkly ones!!
Thanks for coming by. Have a great day!

I finally got done with my girlie vintage album!! Yay!!
Blogger didn't put the pictures in the order I wanted them but you will get the idea! You can click on the pictures if you want a closer view. I didn't show you ALL the pages... I am having so much fun doing something a little different lately. Hope I don't lose you card makers... I will be getting back to that this weekend. I have a class on Tuesday to prepare for.
Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by. I appreciate it very much.

I think I may have figured it out! Fingers crossed! Why is it so hard for me to figure out new things? Especially when the kids these days know how to do it,zap,done?
This is my first attempt at a Toilet paper tube tag book.
I love it!! It was sooo fun to make! I seem to be stuck on butterflies these days so that's what I used as my theme. Each tube has a tag inside that pulls out. Most I left blank for a photo or journaling. A few I added a quote. I also added a beaded charm to hang off the side. I didn't show you all the pages..there are 10 different ones and 5 two sided tags. I can see making a few more of these in my future :)
I am also working on another chipboard album with a girlie/vintage theme.
I have to get back to my cards soon. I have a class in a few weeks and need to get going on it! But I have enjoyed the change of pace. Thanks for stopping today. I promise to get my butt in gear and post more.TTFN!
