For those of you who are tired (or just plain bored) of seeing this album...great news. This is the last post about it. These are photos of the inside middle part of the book. They are 6x6 inch layouts. Because they are all using the same color theme, you can turn the top or bottom pages in any order and they will always match the page above.
I the top photo are a couple of things that I love most about this album. One is the blue flower. I painted it with Making Memories paint and let it dry. Then stamped it using a flourish stamp and black ink. After drying, I used Gelly Roll Stardust markers to color in some of the areas. I love that look of making my own matching embellishments, and I am SURE you will see it here again! I also stamped the flourish on the photo mat, knowing that the edge would show even when you put a photo on top of the mat.
I will tell you that I do have some ideas for some new albums that were inspired by this one. However, it will be a while before I get to them. I am currently working on some Guest Designer things for Creative Cuts and More. Its a die cut store where you can choose the designs you want and order them from her wide variety of different papers and mediums. It is such a fabulous place! The service is grand and the prices are terrific. I have been working on some top secret "missions" for Terry, so you will have to frequently check out her blog to find out what those "missions" might be!! http://www.diecutdiva.creativecutsandmore.com/
Also, things are progressing along here at the Gem household. Good grief. We haven't seen the sunny sunshine in over a week here. It might as well be a year. I always forget how burned out I feel at this time of year. I don't want to get up in the morning, I am tired and unmotivated. (this is probably commonly known as hibernation.) It makes getting school done with the kiddos (and my projects done) quite a task of discipline. Yuck. However, today I saw progress. Praise God for that!
Hope you all have a great week, Peeps! Hang on out there if you are battling cold weather. (Here's a thought for ya'....in another few months, we will be thinking about how hot it is. Perhaps it is just a matter of perspective.)
