Things I've done Recently

I think it's about time I went to Disney again. Would you believe I live this close to Disney World and I haven't been since 1998? That really is silly! I went to Disney more often when I lived in Montreal!

Anyhow the picture shows the front of a mini album that I designed from scratch, cutting the chipboard and painting it and glittering it and coating it and zuttering it and adding ribbons. We are hoping to get it done a little later this year or early in 2009. If you would like, you can click on it to see a much larger version.

Back on the subject of scrapbooks, I've also changed the look of my in home scrapbook display for when people come over to crop. I've refurbished 5 bookshelves using pegboard that I bought and had cut to size at Lowes. I attached the pegboard which is much more solid than the original backboards used to the backs of the bookshelsves. I then used 2nd hand 12x12 trays that I got from a friend and put as many as I could bellow the fixed bookshelf. The most I was able to put in is 28. If you want some trays please just get in touch with me.

Love the Mickey Album M-C!! You did a great job!! Love what you have done with the crop area! WOW!!! It looks so inviting and cozy :) Wish I could put up shelves like that, but with the girls as young as they are I wouldn't have any paper left LOL

M-C I love your Mickey album. We are going to Disney World on the 27th and then a Disney cruise after that. This would be perfect for our trip. Do you mind if I scraplift it?

You are so talented. I love your shelves. Your scrap area is beautiful. I bet all your friends will really enjoy scrapping there. Thanks for sharing.

the pictures of your front room/AKA scrap room are good, but it so much more attractive in person...the light color really makes the room seem larger...great booklet...your talent shows in everything you do!!

Hugs,

Wow looks great M-C! Wish we didn't live 3000 miles apart.

I'm going to Disneyland in November. A friend and I are taking our daughters. Her daughter is 4 and mine is 14. She went with us to my daughter's first Disney visit at the age of 4. So, we're very excited to got with her to her daughter's first visit to Disneyland.

You newly redesigned area looks really nice. It looks like you can find things very easily. I haven't been to you blog in a while and it looks like you've been as busy as ever!

Your shelving looks great. I'm still trying to find room for my stuff since I moved the office.
