6, 7, & 8

So here they are...

This is the back of page 5 (which you already saw) and the beginning of "6". Last Saturday was a busy day. Lots of things got accomplished. To highlight the day I put some pictures together in photoshop, and then printed out. The tag infront of the photo collage is a red Creative Cafe tag to which I added a small scrap of MM papers and lace. Some Prima flowers, an MM sticker and K& Co. ribbon.

On the back of said tag I stamped some journaling lines and journaled about all we did. I then traced my shape on to my photo collage and cut out. Oh, before I cut I added another image to the back of the collage(2 pictures glued back to back).

Here's a look at the back of "6". Just a picture of the kids playing under the tree in the living room. I added the text in photoshop. Now "7" is an addition to my original book (glad I didn't number the pages in advance :wink:) It is just a plain white envelope that I stamped a dotted circle (Hero Arts) and then Stamped a number (Amuse-from One Little Spark the Shop).

On the inside I added some Scenic Route striped paper, placed a picture, some AC photo corners and used some Doodlebug letter stickers.

On the back of the envelope I did some more stamping...journaling lines in red and that cute little reindeer in black. I then filled in the reindeer with some cinnamon Stickles. (Said reindeer was another little goodie picked up at Pat's shop.) The next page is just a picture from inside the conservatory at Longwood Gardens. In between these 2 pages I have some 4x6 photo protectors (currently enroute to my house) that I plan on inserting to showcase a few other pictures.

This is the end of "7" and the front of "8". "7" is another picture from Longwood that I added an Ali Edwards overlay available at Designer Digitals and some text of my own. Since I miss calculated the size when I printed out(oops) I added a strip of felt ribbon from K&Co down the perfectly filled in the gap. Page "8" is a shaped piece of cardboard that I stamped on. Happy Holidays in red and that cute little reindeer again. This time I colored in the reindeer with colored pencils. (Yep, you know where I got the stamps from :wink:) The chipboard frame is Creative Cafe placed upon a scrap of ScenicRoute paper and a glitter Thicker for the "8". Rubons are Basic Grey.

Well I have the pictures for "9" & "10" printed. Hopefully I can get those pages done tonight. Tomorrow is our annual cookie baking day. I don't think I'll get anything scrappy accomplished tomorrow. Not to much going on next hopefully I can get the book caught up.

Sigh. Your book is beautiful. You should consider selling them on Etsy. or maybe just selling one to me... :)

Lovin' it! I still haven't started. :)

Off topic, did you like "One Mississippi"? I was just updating my Goodreads list (just finished "The Bonesetter's Daughter", and saw that I had put it on there sometime earlier this year.
