Double Slider Mini Album - Teacher Appreciation Week

This week has been crazy busy making and delivering Teacher Appreciation gifts for my daughter's first grade class. Don't get me wrong, I really do appreciate the teacher, but what was I thinking? I'm not very good at being realistic, and I was too ambitious and ended up being really stressed out about this week for a long time. I'm glad it's over! I made several gifts, but the highlight was the double-slider mini album made using Andrea Walford's pattern and video available here. It's not terribly complicated as long as you read the directions real well and watch the video a few times before you get started. It was a fun project and I love how it came together. The sliders work perfectly and it's just a really great gift that holds a lot of pictures.

Happy National Scrapbooking Day

What a big day - today is Senior Prom and my daughter's boyfriend is in the running to be prom king. It's also Kentucky Derby Day, and we always celebrate Derby Day with hot browns, spoonbread & maybe a mint julep or two.

I'm not doing any scrapbooking today, I've had to put aside my Week in the Life Project while I prepare for graduation, prom and Teacher Appreciation Week next week. I'm homeroom mom and am making a gift for every day. Yikes!

Anyway - there are some cool giveaways today, make sure you check them out:
