Elena, Lorene and I had a blast posing as "Glue Glider Angels" at the Scrapbook Club meet up last week! Getting together with 35 women is truly just an amazing experience. Everyone brings such a different joyous take on Scrapbooking. This month Elena hosted a "Coin Envelope" Swap for those of us that chose to participate. We each decorated a coin envelope and filled it with goodies. We were to make 17 of the same exact envelope. I filled mine with metal corner protectors, flowers, beads, pipe cleaners, Maya Road chipboard key, and a few other things that have slipped my failing mind. I used a Heidi Swapp mask to make the crown and topped it off with some pretty little Page Pebbles. I also stamped, glittered and cut out (well, Teri did my cutting, wink wink), wings to adhere to the outside of the envelope. I wrapped yummy polka dot ribbon that Cierra found for Pink, and tied it with tulle and affixed a Heidi Swapp ghost flower that I painted. Oh yes...and my favorite part....I sewed the sides and bottoms together!! (Thanks Jess!!) I had to re-thread the dang sewing machine a hundred times, but hey...I'm a newbie....hope I can figure out what the heck I am doing wrong!! The picture of my envelope swap doesn't do it justice (tootin my horn here) Anyhooo....enjoy the finished project!
Giggle of the day...I get to Pink today and lo and behold my Mom is there scrapbooking! She was finishing up an Ally kit for a vacation we took to Palm Springs last summer. I said, oh wow, I just printed my pic's from Palm Springs last year to put in that SAME KIT!! We both smiled. Then, I looked at her workspace, and there she had a kit from Candice McLean "Family Vacation" to put our pic's for our upcoming trip......I had JUST BOUGHT that kit too to put the SAME trip in!! We both giggled!! Silly girls.
