Look what I did... updated

Edited, as promised, with photos at the end of this post

For information purposes you should know this is, umm maybe 'was' is a better term, my kitchen table. In fact after I pulled an all-nighter last night (went to bed at 5am and back up at 6:30am) this was the conversation I had with my husband as he was looking for a place to sit to eat his breakfast. All you kitchen table scrappers just might relate.

Me: "Sorry for the big mess in the kitchen."

Hubby: "I hadn't noticed."

Me: "You didn't notice the mess?!!!"

Hubby: "No! I hadn't notice that we had a kitchen!"

Despite the mess, and I'm only showing you about a 1/4 of it, the creative process was wonderful. I didn't not re-create the scrapbooking wheel, in fact, I borrowed from past ideas. But I love what I did, and now have two new mini-albums to share with you. BUT... you'll have to wait because I'm late for work!

Do you think I should tell my boss that I got 1.5 hours of sleep - nah! He doesn't need to know.
Have a good day!

p.s. check back this afternoon, that's when I'll show my creations.

Both of these albums I made based off of past projects. I tweaked them so they are different but the ideas came from things I've already made. If you'd like to see the original projects I can post those on another day.

First up: Waterfall album - this was originally a class called "lucky Me" at the shop. We used monogram letters. Ring any bells?
Second: I had some left over Daisy D's paper from our last crop and made a little board book. These board books are fabulous for quick projects. I've talked about them before on the blog but that really are worth repeating. (Go buy one!!!)

So there they are. I had fun and it was so worth the mess!

First, what's wrong with the table? Isn't it supposed to look that way??! Mine always does!

The mini albums are great! I loved the board book we made at the last crop!

I love the waterfall book and know I've made a couple after attending a class but I can't remember if it had anything to do with being "lucky' or not. Of course we want to see the original project or projects. Your stuff is always worth viewing even if it's been seen before.

I love the small board books too and also love any book that is of an odd size or design. I kept meaning to send you pictures of one I made for newphew so now I;ll have to see if I can find the memory stick where the pictures are stored so I can send it on to you to show you what I did after seeing something you made that inspired me.
