Scrap Stuff

Here's another version of a LO I posted a couple days ago. This one's for my mom for her b-day! I like this one better because it's balanced out more.

This is the mini paper bag book I did for my g-ma. Poor g-ma, I didn't finish this in time for her party, so she only saw the first 5 pages. (remember I was out until 1:30 the night before!) So, I didn't finish. She was ecstatic about the pages I did finish though! She just kept on laughing and looking at the pictures. She even said "I'm sorry, I'm not even paying attention to the actual scrapbooking, I'm too busy looking at the pictures". I know that she does that and that's why I didn't use a lot of embellishments!! But, that's why we scrapbook anyway, so people can look at our pictures, not look at the sbing!! Anyway, I still have to finish the back cover, actually, my daughter has to. I'm going to have her trace "We Love You" and I'll have Cassidy put her mark on it too!

We are having a terrible storm and I know that when you live out in the country, you lose your power more often! So, I was frantically looking for matches just knowing that we would lose power any minute. I found them in time only to have the power go out about 2 or 3 minutes after I lit my candles! That was close!! Oh, this storm is so bad it got my heart pounding! That doesn't usually happen to me!
