Scrapbook Sunday



Hi...Welcome to my first post on my new weekly feature, "Scrapbook Sunday". I have to be honest....I didn't scrapbook this week :( I got sidetracked with more knitting...I had NOTHING to do any afternoon last week and I was able to give a dear friend some knitting lessons......she's making terrific progress and I am soooo happy for her! I hope it will become a lifelong hobby that she will always enjoy...and with just a few more afternoons and evenings left in which I totally planned on starting my scrapbook season....I got the CUTE.EST knitting project in the mail......and I totally got obsessed....hopefully it will be done in the next few days and I will share it with you...trust me....super cute!!

Anywhoo.....I will introduce you to the big project that is waiting for me when I DO GET down to my craft room this week...... Cubby's Disney scrapbook. I actually haven't started his REAL scrapbooks because I want to get caught up on Cindylou and T's...but I wanted to at least do this one for him.....Last year we were all about Mickey Mouse and Disney.....taking our first trip there, and Cub also had a Mickey Mouse birthday party. I actually intended to have this album finished for him for his birthday.....but that was in the middle of T's football season .... I tried sooooo hard, but I still have 8-10 pages to finish...



Here is a collection of Disney type ribbons and a great Mickey Mouse punch. I have used that a BUNCH of times already.....



LOTS of stickers and doo-dads.....I went a little crazy....but I actually put together an album for my cousin...Gerberagirl's... little cutie patootie last summer....they went with us to Disney and I wanted to surprise her with her own album too. So I bought doubles of everything.....for little Tish's album, Cubbys and eventually Cindylou and T's pages....can't have too many cute Disney things!



...and a little assortment of Disney paper....although I haven't used tooo much of it yet....it has seemed a little too busy for many of the pages I have put together so far.



Oh, and here is our Christmas card from 2008....the year we first went. I made sure I packed the kids all a red tee shirt so they all coordinated when I took the perfect picture of them with Mickey. We went at Thanksgiving time and I already had purchased these plain red cards from Target, embellished them myself with silver glitter glue around the edges and used that Mickey punch to punch out silver glittler Mickey's.....then I dolled them up with the bows. They were addressed and stamped and ready to go......just needed that PERFECT picture! So all I had to do when I got home was slip the pictures in and VOILA....our super great Disney christmas cards!!

Oh, I need your inspiration! I've gotten away from scrapbooking for several years and need to do my daughter's "real" album too! A few friends of mine from the next county over came up to the Scrapbook Station yesterday and I stopped by to hang out with them while they cropped and got inspired by them. I uncovered my table today to take a look around to see what I supplies I already have and what I need to get started...and now I see your post! It must be a sign that I need to get to it!

I to love the cupcakes but the ice can stay in the arctic- we are snowed in right now while McD is in Vegas( I bailed last minute-being a student and Mommy is hard this term, not enough time to read my fav blogs!)

We took our kiddo's to Disney last Feb for the first time and when we got back I went sticker, paper and accessory crazy! And ummm, yep, it still sits with all of my other scrapbook stuff just begging me to brush the dust off and get busy. Maybe if I would get off the computer... HA!

Since I am not a scrapbooker...I cannot tell you how much appreciation I have for the treat girl. Yo made Tish the most beautiful scrapbook I have ever seen. We look at it weekly and talk about all the wonderful fun we had with our family in Disney. Thank you again and cannot wait for Cedarpoint!!
