March Fun!!

Having fun working on the albums....
   I have had alot of fun this March with projects and birthday surprises... My sister's fiance, Lenny, has a birthday in March. We all got together to surprise him with a luncheon. Adrianne wanted to make a 6 x 6 album for him. Lenny's daughter, Kate, came along for the surprise; plus she wanted to learn how to make these albums, too. We had a ball. They worked extremely hard at finishing them in a half-day. Wow.. we were tired at the end.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   The albums came out great.

This was yummy, too.
  I finished a mini..mini... album project or they can be cards, that my sister, Rochelle, showed me how to do. She found it on Pinterest and did some of her own . Check out her blog: Creative Corner Studio Blog for more pics of her mini- paper bag albums/cards. Too cute!      Creative Corner Studio

  Love it when I can use scraps of my designer paper. No waste. Well, I am working with Elaine, my BFF.
She is coming over for help in putting pictures in her 6 x 6 album. I am going to start making an 8 x 8 album.
   Hoping the snow leaves us soon.
