I made this mini album from a kit from Top Line Creations. I used to be a consultant for them before they changed their company. I have lots of these kits left as I bought a bunch of them, If anyone is interested in purchasing one, I'm selling them for $15. I'm not quite done this album, I have one more page to complete and dress up the front a little.

I've been trying to re-organize my scrapbook space so I can start scrapbooking again! I have so many pictures and memories that I don't want to get lost or forgotten. I like digital pictures but I've gotten way behind and have so many that I don't even have printed up. I would hate for them to get lost or destroyed.

I changed my style of Scrap-booking after I discovered 12" x 12" pages could fit a lot more stuff and not look as cluttered. I really like the way the pages look in this different size. Of course it makes it harder to scan, but I managed to get some scanned and stitched together. Most of my pages I do a 2 page spread but for some reason they won't display beside each other on here so they are on top of each other.
I love to hang out at Classics on Alexander in Chilliwack (even though I haven't been there in awhile) I've gone to several of their Friday night CROPS and had a blast, uninterrupted time with friends scrap booking is awesome! Classics on Alexander has a monthly challenge (or at least they did last time I was there) here's how it works...for $5 you get a bag of supplies, you can't see what it is before you buy it, you are instructed to make a scrapbook page out of the given supplies, you are only allowed to add pictures, ink and adhesive, nothing else. The finished pages are then displayed on the wall at the store for the following month for staff and customers to vote. There are 2 picks...a staff pick and a customer pick, you are judged bases on how well you use everything provided. I actually won the customer pick one month with the page "Pretty in Pink"
I had a request to see some of my scrap book pages so I decided to post some that I had scanned on disc already. These are some of my early styles of scrap booking I used to do 8 1/2" x 11" pages. A few of them were just pictures of the page rather than a scan so there is a little glare and not completely straight but I hope you enjoy them.

Today the kids went back to school! This begins a new era for me, Kieron our youngest started Grade One, this means all of the kids are in school all day long! What will I do with my time...well, I've already got a "To Do" List made up and have already started to scratch the surface. I also plan to pick up a few extra shifts at work as I'm swapping babysitting with a friend, hopefully this will work out for both of us.
The kids were very excited to go back to school I could hardly get them to stand still long enough to take a picture of them. Brenna is 11 and starting Grade 6, Olivia is 6 and starting Grade 2 and Kieron is 5 and starting Grade 1.
