More Journal Your Christmas

I am finally getting a chance to work some more on my Journal Your Christmas Album. Here are another 6 pages. I have really enjoyed doing this and can't wait to get the entire album finished.

Valentine's Day

This was a joint effort between Kristen and myself. She tells me earlier in the week that she needs Valentines Day at school. Wouldn't have been a big deal, except this is conference week so I have to stay at school late two nights and have meeting the other nights. Anyway, I woke up at normal time this morning (even thought I didn't have school) so that I could get a box for made for her. She then had fun using up some of my embellishments and stamps to decorate her box. I think that this box is going to have to last for another 2 years. I can't be doing this daily. Of course this was done with no pattern. If I would have been smart I would have searched for a pattern online and printed it out while at school. Wait I couldn't do that because even though we had conferences and needed access to grades the computer search engines for the district were turned all blocked. At least she had fun and doesn't have a plain box or bag. Kristen has to be a little different from the norm.

Disney Swaps done

Okay, I belong to this totally awesome online group ScrappiestDisneySwapping. They are an awesome bunch of ladies. I have learned a lot about scrapping from this group. I used to just use stickers or diecuts to create a title, now I design my title to match the pictures. Before joining this group I had never heard of journal boxes, deco squares, paper piecing, side mounts, bazzill paper and many other things. Now I am branching out to learn how to do many other things. The pictures I posted are from an ABC swap. Can't wait to get them back (and of course head to Disney so that I can add new pictures to this album). I also posted two titles that I am submitting for a couple of swaps. If you are big into Disney and Swapping and would like info, let me know and I will send you the link to join.
