Scrap Book Plans

OK. I have consulted with my friend and am about to start a scrap book for my first son. I have decided to do three scrap books, one for each child, and to have them ready for Christmas. It isn't as easy as it looks - I am now on the hunt for the right photos and thinking about how best to tell their stories. I have a lovely example of a Hope book that I want to try out for each of them. I have settled on which album to do first, the colours of that one, and some of the embellishments and photos, but still need to play some more. I want to stamp some of the pages as well, of course. I always take ages to think about how best to do things. Projects seem to have to percolate in the back of my mind for awhile till they can become 'real'. Will post some of the results as it goes along though :-)

Scrap booking tomorrow!

Tomorrow I get to try scrap booking with a friend who has been scrap booking for years. She is going to help me put together a gift for our DS who is getting married in less than 3 weeks. I have been gathering old photos of him today to see what we can come up with. I plan to make an album to give them too - for the wedding photos. Will post up the results when I have played for awhile. It's been a busy week as we have our church camp on at the moment. It's a lot of fun and a lot of work! Maybe there will be a scrap booking project that comes out of that as well..hmmm...stamping and scrap booking do go together pretty well, don't they? Must make a birthday card for an Aunt tomorrow too. More later.

Red Hat Day



Today was a lot of fun - a bunch of us got together to welcome one of our friends to the Red Hat Society! It was a fun day. I made a card for her that I have posted for you to see. We all dressed for the occasion, with four Red Hat Ladies being present and about another 10 Pink Hat Ladies also coming along to enjoy the day. I've posted a picture of my own Red Hat look for today.
Have any of you ever taken part in a Red Hat Society event? We are not a registered chapter, but it looks easy to become one! If you want to know more about the Red Hat Society, click on this link:
