Since I can't post photos of anything else, I'll show off my Iris Cart Mother's Day gift. I'm afraid I'm very much like my Mother. I love things with many drawers so I can sort and stack.
I want to share.
I have been working on several scrap book projects over the last couple of weeks, and I desperately want to post them to a gallery or in my blog or somewhere. But I can not because I have made them for specific calls. And in every case the call asks that the project, layouts, etc. not be posted.
So I have been forced into a mysterious silence and lack of new photos in my blog. I have been scrapping more this week than I have for quite some time. Alas, I have nothing to share.
Tuesday a friend came over and I helped her with a project for her brother. He is getting married this weekend.
The bride-to-be decided she wanted a photo album of their pre-wedding photos to use as a guest book. The problem is, she didn’t get the papers, etc. to my friend until last Friday, leaving her with a week to put together a 16 page album.
So I made 4-5 pages in a five hour period.
Over the weekend I put together a layout with photos of my youngest son and his two cousins. When I went up to visit for Easter, all three little blond boys were dressed in red shirts, so I had to take a ton of photos. But this layout is headed to CK for their book call. I did a second one with the girl cousins, also for the CK book call.
I am in the process of putting together a really fun mini-album for the Crate Paper contest at Scrappin Trends. I am really excited about the concept, and when I took it into my LSS (Local Scrapbook Store) to do some die-cuts, the owner’s husband told me I should teach a class.
So, I might be picking up a teaching gig this summer. Whoo Hoo! But I can’t officially toot yet, because (a) I can’t show the project and (b) I’m not sure she’s going to be able to find a spot and the right equipment for the class.
I have also put together two pages for the Creating Keepsakes Becky Higgins sketch for November. In my humble opinion they are not as good as the pages I did for the October sketch, but still, I like them. However I can’t show you either the October or November sketches until calls go out.
So here I sit, having spent the last week assembling cool pages and projects and submitting them to various places, unable to show and tell.
However, I do have one thing I don’t want to share, and probably will end up sharing, a nasty summer cold. Don’t you love the ironies of life?
