Preview Night is Almost Here!

So, tomorrow night is my first Preview Night at Timeless Treasures . . . yay!  Of course I am a bit nervous though.  What if no one likes my albums . . . what if no one signs up for my classes . . . what if, what if, what if . . .?  So I guess I just need to get over myself and let it be.  Here is a sneak peak at my two albums.  The first one is entitled "Grunge Princess" and is a mini chipboard album with a crown style edge on the pages. And, since I don't have a girl, the pictures inside are Gidget (of course) until I get more pictures of my brother's little girl (hint, hint Sean).  Here it is . . .

So what do you think?  Okay, I know no one is reading this blog because I've only given the web address to my brother so far, but maybe some day someone will be looking . . .

My second album this quarter is another chipboard and is called the "Classic Christmas" chipboard album.  I wanted to keep it classy looking and not cutesy like so many of the Christmas albums.  The birdcage page was really fun to do using the Tim Holtz technique to create a "rusted metal" look with his special embossing powers.  The album wasn't quite finished when I took these pictures, so the banner by the birdcage will say "Peace on Earth;" and if you can't see it, in the bird's mouth it's a piece of holly instead of an olive branch (well I thought it was cute!).  Okay, here it is . . .

Soooooo . . .? 

If anyone is reading this, hope to see you Tuesday night, September 27th at Timeless Treasures in Rancho Santa Margarita at 6:30 p.m.

Summer Fun Mini Chipboard Album

This is a Mini Chipboard Album I created using the Simple Stories "100 Days of Summer" paper line.  This was a super quick fun album but there is sooo much you could do with that line.  I just love all of their papers!

Dog Days

Okay, for those of you who don't have dogs you won't appreciate this, but I swear my dog smiles and frowns!  Take a look at these pics and tell me I'm wrong.  In picture number one you can just see the word bubble above her head that says "I'm a pretty, pretty princess."  In the second picture she had been harrassed by my sister, and then placed next to a 4 year old for this picture (a 4 year old who pets her fur in the wrong direction) . . . so tell me that is not a frown!
