As I promised

I did do something creative this afternoon and thought I'd share. A few years ago I started a little mini album for dance. Each year we add one or two pages. Usually from recital or the Mother's Day dance. But there are a few other pages in there too. Here is what the cover looks like:

The cover and back are 6x6 pieces of white chipboard, which I punched holes in and bound together with binder rings. The insides are just 6x6 pieces of white bazzil cardstock. The cover is embellished with some ballet slippers (Jolee's I think that B fell in love with on a visit to the Cafe a few years ago), a heidi swapp acrylic heart, MM rhinestone brad, some KI letters that I traced for her name, and an American Crafts rubon.

Well it's one of those projects, that I know I have to do; yet I procrastinate. Now Becca has been bugging me to update it (I was 2 years behind) So today was the day I decided to scratch it off my "to-do" list.

Here are the pages with the '07 recital & '08 Mother's Day dance on them:

"Kiss the Girl" page: Pink Paislee letter stickers, Hambly Journaling spot; American Crafts flowers and Kaiser Rhinestones. Mother's Day Dance: Rusty Pickle Pattern Paper, Heidi Swapp flower(large), small flower and ballerina sticker by AdornIt.

She was in 2 different numbers this year...luckily the colors in her costumes coordinated allowing me to do a 2 page spread. Pattern Paper: American Crafts; journaling spots: Maya Road office sheers; letter stickers: Scenic Route and MM tiny alphas.

There was also a Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony page from December '06 that I did too.
(I forgot to take a picture of that page)

Did I metion that somebody REALLY likes her book and was SO happy that I finally brought it up to date. (She always loves posing for pictures...I think she was jealous that the camera was pointed at the book instead of her :wink: She insisted I take a picture of her with it.)

So I got up early...went to a soccer game, stopped at the grocery store, started some laundry, made a salad for a party we're attending tonight, then got busy creating. Now you're all caught up on my day and SO am I.

Tomorrow as I mentioned we have an afternoon soccer game about an hour away. So I doubt we'll talk again until Monday at the earliest. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

She's such a cutie! :) You are going to have your hands full in a few short years. Her book is super cute, too.
