Call me Crazy...or just Lazy?

I've known for weeks that Shelby's four closest girlfriends (Anna, Annie, Carolyn and Kelly) were having a combined graduation party today. I had been toying with the idea of making all five of the girls memory books with pictures from 9th through 12th grade. Of course, being the procrastinator I am, I didn't officially decide "yes" until yesterday around 11:00am. With a one day window, I frantically loaded my pictures to a neighborhood drug store for printing, I thought I could get 1 hour service but unfortunatley I wasn't able to pick them up until 4:30 pm. No need to panic, I decided to cut all the papers, make the front and back covers and get everything ready while waiting for the pictures. I stayed up until 12:30 working away, and continued at about 8:30 this morning. After sending Tom to the store to get more adhesive (I think I literally used every single source of adhesive I had in my posession) I finally finished glueing, stapling, sewing and wrapping at hour to spare. Wow I'm good under pressure! {HUGE SIGH}

Well, we're off to the party!

These books are absolutely stunning. I'm sure the girls will love them, I know I would!

WOW!!!!! I think those books are absolutely adorable!! AND I cannot believe you got all of them done in such a small amount of time! I think I'd lean toward calling you crazy because you're absolutely NOT lazy.

Such sweet, beautiful memory albums. I'm sure the girls were so happy with them. You are so talented and have great style. I love making mini albums, but mine are not as wonderful as yours.

Shut up. I love this. How cute! They must have loved them.
I so get a *genius* idea 5 minutes before a party begins. I have made last minute books, too! Are you sure you didn't find me in in your ancestry thing? I think we may be related- cousins or something!
