Coffee Filter Album

I am hosting an altered item swap in my group and decided to try out a coffee filter album. This was alot of fun. I used the brown cone shaped filters and colored them with my distress inks. I used 3 different coordinating papers, some bling, and some stickers to jazz them up a little. I stamped the front cover with my newest stamp purchase using distress ink. I had a hard time with the eyelets but finally got those set and then bound the book together with a one inch binder ring. I tied some brown ribbon around the binder ring and voila- a coffee filter album. It was fun. Took a little longer than I expected, but I blame that on the eyelets. LOL.
I have to make 5 of these for our swap. I hope everyone likes them!

My Latest Burst of Creativity

I created this album using BoBunny chipboard albums in black and pink and lots of BoBunny papers, flowers, bling, and brads. Oh and as much pretty pink ribbon as I could find. LOL. I didn't add any pics because this one is going to be FOR SALE! I am going to start making these small albums and selling them. So what do you think???

The Retreat....

Danny was the photographer during the retreat weekend. He takes such awesome pics. Here are a few that he snapped over the weekend.

Retreat Weekend....things accomplished

I managed to get quite a bit done over the retreat weekend. Twinchies and some super cute layouts. My favorite layout is the "It's hard to be Bouncer" LO. How adorable is he? And that paper....ohhhh how I love the paper. It was a gift from Theresa!

A quick update

Tonight is our first rodeo night! We are taking my Grandpa to see Alan Jackson. Next week is my crop (yea) and Theresa is flying in Thursday night. I am taking her with me to see Brad Paisley (YEA!). I probably won't be doing much scrappin between now and the crop. This weekend we are going to Mike and Donna's bayhouse for fishing and relaxing!!! I'm going to save all my projects for crop weekend.

The house is FINALLY done. Tile thru-out!!!! I LOVE it. I hate that I have to sweep the floor everyday but I really LOVE the tile. Thinking about getting Bouncer shaved....he would hate me for it...but it sure would help the dog hair situation!

Still waiting on an answer from my doctor. All my tests come back normal except for my blood tests. Talk about frustrating! The meds are helping ALOT and the pain is very minimal right now. I have my MRI on Friday and I go back to see the doctor one week from today.

In 32 days I will be doing the AVON walk....Hopefully the pain is gone by then or Danny might be pushing me in a wheelchair. NO MATTER WHAT- I am determined to finish the walk!
