Paper Posies Online Crop Day 2

Saturday, May 30, 2009

Day 2 of the Paper Posies online crop and more fun and games are in store for you! Join us here

I hosted a mini album challenge yesterday that will run the next 4 weeks. Last night I revealed the cover and every Friday evening over the next 4 weeks I'll reveal 2 more pages so you can play along over the weekend and create your own book.

I've been wanting to create an album about me for my kids to have when they are older. I want them to be able to read and share it with their kids. I always loved listening to my grandmas stories of when she was a young girl and wish I had something she'd created to read and remember her by. Plus with some some recent losses in scrapbooking blog land it made me think that I really wanted to have something to leave behind for my kids to know that it wasn't just being their mom I enjoyed in my life and how thankful I am that I'm a part of their lives.
So onto my reveal...

Cover, lots of distressing

My handmade Posie flower

I used pop dots to raise it off the page

Finally here's a card challenge I posted in the online forum today. I used the sketch from Card Patterns this week and challenged the girls to make a layout or card with a handmade Posie on it using the sketch and a link to Card patterns to submit their card for this week's challenge over there as well.

Here's the Sketch

My take

So thanks for stopping by my blog and come on over and join us today for more games, fun and PRIZES!!!
