Months ago I bought several acrylic albums to do because I just LOVE the look of them!! BUT, I was too chicken to start them for fear I would mess them up. This month on SavvynSassy my challenge was to use anything see-thru on a layout, card or project (which you can see here) so I forced myself to do my acrylic album, finally. It took a while, but I absolutely loved doing it! I love using rubons because you can see them on both sides of the page. Gems are great too. You can use them on one side, then do the same design on the other side. It takes a lot of planning, but is well worth it, I think. I figured I would start simple and did an album with pics of the 4 seasons. And here it is!

What's New

I really need to get caught up here! Last week I received 5 raks from crops and NSD challenges, plus an order from Lil Scrappers, SavvynSassy and my May Scraptivity! kit (with lots of add ons LOL!) Was definitely a good mail week!! I should have taken pics of all the raks, I was definitely spoiled though!!

Here is the May Scraptivity kit. I love the colours and I have never even seen Heidi Swapp paper before.

Here is my June SavvynSassy ribbon DT kit. Hopefully I can start designing tonight. I am going to make a bunch of cupcake/ice cream cards, yum! I can't wait to see what Zany Zinnia kit will go with it!

SavvynSassy is looking for 2 new design team members for July-December. Check out the details here. It's such a fun team to be on!!

Deanne's Am I a Scrap Addict blog May 15th sketches are up, and here's my layout:

This coming Saturday (May 24th) Paper Paradise is having a garage sale and I have rented a table. Hopefully I can sell some of my excess and TLC scrap stuff. I'm sure I'll spend any money I make on more stuff at the garage sale LOL! Brielle & my Mom are going to come along, so it should be a fun morning!
That's it for now, will have to catch up more tomorrow!
