A little sparkle...














Sorry my blog has been so dull lately. I've made a few quick cards for some little guys and that's about all I have had time for.

I've been making a gift album for a 50th birthday that is rapidly approaching. I won't bore you with all of them but I thought I'd share the first page. I added those Stampendous hologram (?) sticker dots to the 50 to make it sparkle and also to the scalloped bottom. I used a free stamp I got from Inkadinkado and added dots to that as well (on the bottom left).

I just finished two more pages that I'm pretty happy with. I probably have about 6-8 more to go. I also want to search my photos for high school pix of us, just for laughs.

I know this doesn't make it any better color-wise but it's better than text only. I can't even begin to tell you how nice it is to scrap for a non-scrapper! There's no pressure to get it perfectly balanced and all that.

This is a great page. Whatever picture is put in will really Pop with the black and white. Great job. If the rest is like this they will love it!

So true. I feel the pressure either way, though. :/

Oooh, I love black and white and the sparkly 50! Definitely scrapping for the non-scrapper is much, much easier. A lovely gift!

And I think you are far from boring! I was very excited just reading about ice cream cakes and birthday meals....yum! Of course, now I feel a bit snacky....
