Have you been wondering where I've been? Or what I've been up to? Yeah, me too!!! LOL. Actually, I've been reorganizing my craft space. It was a mess, and it was getting to the point where I couldn't find anything. So now everything has a place and a label!!! So much easier now!!
I finished and sent off my Snobby Walrus LOs & project.......like 3 days before it was due!!! Ugh!! I hate it when I do that!! I like to get things done early!! But for some reason, I had a hard time with my project, I just couldn't get anything to work out the way I wanted it...so, I finally decided to make a card!! Not that I have anything against cards, but I just thought that, that was the easy way out!! In my defense, I was just totally out of ideas!!
Also I've been working on projects for the May DT Challenge at Posh!!! Nini has now added LOs to the challenge. So, we can do a card and/or an LO!!!! Love it......I actually got both done and 6 days ahead of time!!!
And I have been working on my DDs Recipe Album. This was what she wanted for Easter....problem is that she told me like 4 days before!!! Soooooo, I've been scrambling to get it done asap!! Plus I made a few Mother's Day cards!!!
Good thing I'm on vacation, right!!! It's been nice being home!! I'm trying to get my sleeping or lack their off, fixed. It's been an issue since I worked 2 hours away during the Holidays. I have finally given up, and am now taking sleeping pills to try and get my self regulated and on a set sleep schedule!! Hopefully when I go back to work, I'll be okay.
Soooo, I thought that I would share the recipe pages I made with you. Since there's like 6 of them (that I actually took pics of), I will limit the closeups.....else you'll be here til tomorrow, just reading this!!
So here goes.......
My ex-MIL's Banana Bread recipe......it just might be the only good thing that happened in that marriage!!! Everybody loves it, and it always comes out great...moist and tasty!! Naturally everyone always wants more!! I have a co-worker friend who loves this bread so much, that if I make some for him, I have to make two. One to eat at work, and the other to bring home and share with his wife!!!
I really had to work at not over-embellishing these pages, so that Ashley's album could lie flat!!! So these are very simple LOs....not my usual style!! That's okay, it forces me out of my comfort zone....kind of like doing Mason pages.....it's so hard to not put flowers on those LOs!!!! Well, sometimes I do, but I try to limit it, so that his pages actually look like boy pages!!!
I used some Cosmo Cricket & Basic Grey papers on these, with a bit of K&Co & DCWV thrown in. I'm also trying to use up some older embellies that I have in my stash. Gotta make room for more scrappy goodies!!!! LOL......I just ordered some Timmy stuff again!!! Now I want some Dew Drops!! Ouch....... my wallet is hurting!!!
Here's the card I made dor DD......
Love this collection from Webster's Pages!!! I ordered this set about a month ago, and it took almost that long before I got it!! That's how backed up they are!! Anyways, I did a bit of fussy cutting & layering of pp, added a Prima flower, which is just too perfect for this paper! And the 'daughter' chipboard embellie from K&Co, again, it's perfect with this paper!!
Soooo, that's about it for now. Will be back in the next few, with my Snobby Walrus & Posh projects.
