Good mornin'!!

Good mornin', good mornin'! It's great to stay out late, good mornin', good mornin' to you!!! Okay, I'm not exactly Debbie Reynolds when I sing, but you get the idea!! Singin' in the Rain is my all time favourite musical and I sing that song a lot, it's so cute!

Last night Emileigh and I went out for a girls night. Once every couple of months, I go out to dinner and the movies with a bunch of girls and last night Emileigh came with us for the first time and we had a lot of fun! I mean, she is almost 15 for pete's sake! So went and saw Catch and Release with Jennifer Garner and it was a real chick flick!! We always go see a romantic comedy that we KNOW the men will never see with us! And it was a real sappy, yet FUNNY comedy. (Also we made another run to Michael's...ya know....since we were in London and all!)

OH!! Some of you had asked that I get Feedblitz so that you can subscribe to my blog!! Well, it took me a big to figure out exactly how to do that....but with the help of my good friend Cindy Lou, I got it added last night! So now you can subscribe, so that whenever I put up a new posting, it will automatically notify you in your email!!! How cool is that?? That way you will never miss a new project, tutorial or just my silly blurbs!!

Today I thought I would show you a project that I made for my parents for Christmas. I purchased a chipboard accordian from my local scrapbook store, covered it with Melissa Frances patterned paper which I sanded around the edges and added some charms, some metal words like 'joy' and some vintage stickers. The pictures I am really happy with. I was fiddling around with my new digital camera that I got from my honey for Christmas (actually before Christmas, heehee) and I like the pictures taken with natural light the best. So one day Emileigh was sittin' on the couch, doin' the teenage thing and I grabbed the camera and started shooting her with just the light coming in from the window. I made her laugh and make serious faces and I got a bunch of different shots. I picked out my faves, cropped them down to 3x3 squares and adhered them to the accordian at jaunty angles!! And voila! Now it's a lovely decoration that Mom has displayed on a shelf! Something like this makes a great gift! Now I need to make one for myself!!

Happy Kraftin'!

Very nice ... Oh how my mom would love it if I made something like this with photos of my little ones. Mmmm there's lots of time between now and Christmas maybe I'll actually get it done on time. (wink) Thanks for the great inspiration.
