As I mentioned earlier, I was away on a retreat with some friends this weekend so I managed to get a lot accomplished. I completed three projects for family and about family. First of all --the Circus is coming to town and how I wish I could take my niece and nephews with me when I'm sitting front row at American Airlines cheering like a fool. LOL. But in the spirit of the Circus --oh, and not just any circus...I'm talking Barnum and Bailey, baby...anyway, in the spirit of the Circus or Le Cirque, I am sending both my nephews and my niece some fun and flavored popcorn that is adorned with a circus themed tag. Something tells me they are going to care more about the popcorn. :p
I also made a 5x7 book FOR ME. Yes, FOR ME. You see, I rarely keep things I make but gosh darnit, I'm going to keep this one for myself. This book is filled with beautiful 5x7 portraits of my family from start to end. The only embellishing I did was to the cover. I covered it with 7G tissue paper and made one of my famous clusters using flowers and elements from Maya Road, Prima, and Recollections. I am so pleased with how this turned out.
The other project that I made is a 5x7 album as well but this one is about my nephew playing T-Ball. Again, not much embellishing and the paper that I did use was from a cheesey kit. But that's okay...it's not the paper or the embellishments that made this book and told the story...it was the pictures inside.
Thanks for reading!
