Some things to share.....

Seems like this has been a pretty productive weekend so far and I still have one more day to go! I worked on retreat stuff yesterday; we have almost everything in and it was so exciting to see all the items together. That's all I can say about that for now :)

I made my mom's banana nut bread recipe today only to find I didn't have enough walnuts so I took a chance and lots of pecans & chocolate chips. I've eaten three peices now it's so good.

On to my items to share...

These are two custom Christmas albums I've been working on. I while back I posted about doing some and thought I'd share two that are completed. I had put off scrapping these photos because they weren't so great but it turns out when I put them in a cute little album and surround them with even cuter embellishments the moments were captured better than in a 12 x 12 LO. The Christmas Tree was made with an older Sweetwater Kit and for the Gingerbread House I used the a kit from the dozens. I think it was November. I cut the shapes on the cricut out of chipboard then traced pages and hand cut them as needed.

This layout I did today after a nice Sunday afternoon nap; the right side is based on the Gettin Sketchy August Sketch. I used the Sweetwater Express kit from July 2005. Yes, 2005 :(

Finally, this little project I cranked out last weekend. Our friend Lisa has officially moved and we wanted to get her a little going away something. I made the holder out of a TAC stamp set container using chatterbox products. Found the mini pink paint roller and couldn't resist! The gift card holder on the front of the card was a Chatterbox envelope that I embellished.
