More stuff....

We had a nice fall day yesterday at the apple orchard (pumpkins and pony rides) and a stop at the park. FUN!!! In another week we will be watching another of the grandkids (4 year old Bryce) one day a week. Becca Rose and Bryce will have a ball together!!

Well, a miracle happened last week. I actually finished a project and had it in the mail with TWO weeks to spare!! Amazing! These are my pages for Lenna's "Love" themed skinny book. I had fun with this one. I love the background papers (both new purchases from a trip to Archiver's last weekend with the girls!) The first one has a grungeboard swirl at the bottom painted with crackle paint and some really cool old coat check tickets. Decided on a romntic Paris theme for this page.

I cut this paper so I could use the chandeliers, hand, number and glitter swirl. I added the romantic photo, transparent heart, white rub-ons, jewels, the keyhole and the music tissue tape.....which I love!

This is a photo of the minibook we made at one of the Tim Holtz classes we took at Stampaway in August. I took me long enough to take pictures! I still have to get photos of the jewelry pieces we made at the other class. This book is fun....grungeboard covers with a metal framed sentiment and layered metal charm flowers. The closure is a cool swivel clasp with a typewriter key charm. We attached a key to the handle of the little suitcase!

The pages are various pockets and flowers and tickets and photo frame trims.


  1. Leslie, I cannot say enough how beautiful the skinny page for me is! I LOVE it so! The transparency heart was such a nice surprise as i did not realize it was a transparency till i received it. Thank you again, so much.
