Tag shaped acrylic album

Jessica sent me this tag album to work with, for her to bring along to the expo in Florida in december.
I had never worked with this shape acrylic before, so it was really a fun challenge for me.
With Si turning 5 earlier this month, I wanted to create a simple mini slbum with memories from his birthday, while the memories were still fresh in my mind.
I used Ki Memories sheers on the front cover.
Instead of using ribbon on the binder rings, I strung Prima Flowers on the rings.
I used Paint dabber to paint along the edges of every page.
I used the Glitz designs circle rubon as the template for the pictures on the pages.
Every page has 4 pictures that I trimmed to fit inside that circle.

my first Canadian Scrapbooker pub

While at Rhubarb Roots last Thursday, I noticed they had the latest issue of Canadian Scrapbooker magazine, so while flipping through it I spotted my sample. I was thrilled because I didnt realize this was the issue I would be in.

a toot

I was crazy excited to have 2 copies of the new Paper Trends arrive, along with a box full of scrapping goodies(and of course my sample)
It was my first pub with them(and hopefully not my last)

look what arrived

8'' acrylic circle album

"40 reasons why being your Momma rocks"

When Jessica(Kits 2 remember) sent me 3 acrylic albums and basically said to go nuts with them, I was really excited.
The first thing I decided when trying to figure out what to do with this mini album, was that I wanted to go with a black and green colour scheme, and from there I went with black and white pictures.
Majority of the embellishments I chose were black, with a few green ones for contrast.
I had a blast working on this, and this would be a typical example of my current scrapping style.

December daily journal album

After admiring Ali Edwards December journals for the last 2 seasons, I finally decided it was my turn to give it a whirl. I used two 5x7 acrylic pieces from Kits 2 Remember for my front and back cover, and then an assortment of patterned paper, transparencies, tags, envelopes and acrylic circles for the inside pages.
I am going to take a picture every day in December, so I can complete each page as I go along......are you playing along as well for December?
