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!!
