this page is about how this year we are not doing our advent wreath and thinking it is mostly because of our crazy schedule causing us not to be eating dinner together most nights. A fact that we all HATE
Today I took Jordan for his 16 year check up. These are always a time when I look back over the past year and just reflect on my kids. It is a great time of the year to do this and to be grateful for such a healthy happy child.
I absolutely love snow, winter and storms. It is the time I can feel the coziest and the air feels the most magical.
for this page I used: recollections glitter paper, KI Memories snowflace lace cardstock, stickles, recollections stickers, american crafts thickers (2) painted silver, queen and co felt, making memories transparency and MLS glittler letters.
This is the title page for my album this year. I needed to just have a title page to allow me to start the journal today. I love this photo because you can see my reflection in the Christmas bulb
The back of the cover is KI memories Christmas paper. This is, by far, my favorite piece of pattern paper ever made. I still am hoarding 5 sheets of it. LOL The transparency is from Hambly and the chipboard is Scenic Route
The chipboard "JOY" and little stars are K&Company. The letter stickers for "Christmas" are Scenic Route" The 2010 numbers are American Crafts thickers
I am all ready to begin my Christmas journal for 2010. I have created all the base pages and have finally finished the cover today Let the fun begin!!!
for the cover I used white cardstock and KI Memories white lace cardstock. on a cardboard base. I used Modge Podge to glue it all on. The label holder is a basic grey chipboard that I painted with Claudine Hellmuth paint from House of Paper then I added Stickles from House of Paper. The brads are American Crafts and the letter stickers are Making Memories from House of Paper. The star was fun to do because I got out my embossing powders and heat gun. it is a cipboard star from Basic Grey that I 1st embossed with silver and then with uxtra thick embossing clear embossing powder. I am so excited for the month to begin.
Well I decided to tackle the boys bathroom since it is the bathroom that is used by all our guests. It was gross looking and did totally look like a gang of gross boys were living in there. So I decided to paint the stark white walls a mint green. I painted the vanity white and changed out the hardware. Got a new shower curtain and away we go.
AFTER- These photos do not really show the color of the room. The walls are really like the color of mint chocolate chip ice cream. Still working on decorating the walls. I have photos that will be going up soon.
