This weekend I finally got a start on Drew's baby album. I kept meaning to start on it but would get to busy and it just kept getting pushed back.
Thankfully Mom is helping me with my kits this month so I got to actually have a weekend instead of working! (Thanks Mom!) On Friday I decided to make the title page for Drew's baby album and was pleasantly surprised at how quickly the page went together! That picture is one of my favorites of him! I took it the day we were leaving the hospital. Mike was feeding him before we left and sitting in a rocking chair beside a big window. The lighting was perfect and I ended up with so many great shots of them.
The second page is one that I had done for a class a couple of weeks ago. After I stitched the title I decided to take a little break since the stitching takes so long and to let my fingers rest. I ate a few Cheez-Its and then started working again. After a few minutes I looked down and there was a greasy Cheez-It finger print on my layout!! There was no way I was going to go back and start over. That stitching is too time consuming to do over again! I had to stretch my creative brain and find a way to cover it. Does that make me sound lazy? The circles with buttons ended up being my cover up! You can still see a little peeking out from under one of them but oh well!
Be sure to check out the Consider Yourself Challenged blog this afternoon. We will be posting the showcased layouts and the winner of the prize drawing. It was fun looking through each of the entries! You all really amazed me with your creative takes on the challenge! I'm so glad that so many joined in and I can't wait for challenge #2.
So the Scrapbooker of the Year calls should be going out sometime in the next few days. After HOF I didn't think that I would be going through this again. The torture of waiting for "the call." Jumping every time the phone rings. Checking the message boards like crazy! Thank goodness for the kit clubs to keep me busy! Still in the back of my head I keep thinking about it...just really hoping for a call but trying to not get my hopes up. (It doesn't help that this one has a trip to Las Vegas attached to it!!) I've seen some really talented people that have entered! Best of luck to everyone that entered!!
