Senior Prom!

WHEW! I finally finished Shelby's Senior Prom album. I love these Sassafrass Lass papers, the colors and patterns are so fun! I had been saving them for a special project and I think her senior prom quaifies (besides, I'm sure Matt won't be broken hearted that I'm not planning on making him a prom album let alone a girly prom album!).

I'm off to work on my next niece, Jordan, left behind the CUTEST bear drawing (she makes her own softie patterns and sews the cutest little critters) so I think I'll turn it into a pattern and make him out of felt.

Paper Bag Lady

About three years ago my sister, Lisa, got me hooked on making these little paper bag scrapbook albums...I used to sell them on Ebay before I discovered Etsy. I quit making them a year or so ago but after making the five graduation albums for Shelby and her friends I'm obsessed with making them again. One of the girls asked if I could make an album for her father so here it is...
I suppose I should finish Shelby's Senior Prom album before I make anymore paper bag albums!

The girls LOVED their graduation gift memory albums...thank goodness, I truly was worried that they would think they were silly. I'm so glad I decided to make them, even if it was at the last possible minute.

I found this cute rusty box at a flea market a few weeks ago...I added a few do-dads and put Shelby's senior prom corsage inside..maybe I'll tuck a few more of her senior year momentos in there.
