I've been working on this mini album for a couple weeks now. It was supposed to be for my Mother-in-law for Grandparents Day, but I didn't get to finish it in time.. so it's going to be a little late.

But, the good thing is.. it's DONE!

$1 Scrapbook Supplies

Came across this website, Scrapbuck, that sells over 1500 items at a $1 a piece. They offer a flat shipping rate of $7.99 no matter what you spend!

I'm always keeping my eye out for great deals, seeing that scrapbooking can be a costly hobbie, as many of you know!

I also suggest going to Frugalities.. they have different deals everyday, currently they are offering 40% off ALL their items!

Today & Always Digital LO

Made this digital lo this morning. I used the Jessica Sprague, "Echoes of Asia" freebie download from the Creating Keepsakes website. This is my first time "scraplifting" a LO, I really like the ways she desiged her page. This is her original:

"Dear Daddy" First digital Layout

Just completed my very first digital layout. I've always done the traditional paper scrapbooking, but I'm slowly learning how to do the digital. I'll always be a fan of the paper style sb'ing, but digital is fun every once in a while. Layout took me roughly 20-25 minutes to do!

I used the Miss Mint digital kit, "Daditude"

Time for an Updated Post

Oh my, I didn't realize how long it's been since I have posted. I've had a lot that has been happening in my life-- so I haven't really had any time to scrap.

Lately though, I've been spending time in my sb room and I am currently working on a mini-album, which I'll post once it's complete. I'm trying to get caught up on my Project 365. I slacked for a while, for quite a while.. :-( slowly, but surely I will have it up to date.

If you read my family blog, you'll know that my husband and I are expecting our 3rd baby. We found out on the 3rd that we'll be having a girl! We are VERY excited. Two boys later, I'm stoked for a girl!

I can't wait to start scrapping about her-- I have seen so many cute "girl" related things and now I can ACTUALLY by them!

A couple weeks ago I scored an awesome photo priner at a garage sale. A Kodak Easyshare 3500 for .. get this... $20 Hardly used. Works GREAT! I had just been telling my Mom that I needed a new printer because my old one (Picture Mate) just wasn't working much anymore... well BAM. I got one!

Lately I have been a stalker on the Deal a Day sites.. haven't purchased anything, but have seen some really neat things at a great price. The 4 I vist are:

Peachy Cheap
Crop Chocolate
Scrapbook Moja
Flowers to Flourishes

As for blogs, I'm constantly checking blogs everyday. For inspiration, ideas, contests, etc. The blogging world sure is addicting, I tell ya!

I'll be posting some projects soon-- Keep checking back!
