The "All About Me "Book Group

Gill at has created this group and we are making scrapbooks telling about ourselves or something or someone that means alot to us.  This is our first month and we will be posting one page a month.  I chose to make mine about my passions.  I am passionate about different things in life.  This page will either be the cover or the first page---I really haven't decided.I am glad we're doing this.  I have gotten away from really scrapbooking into more cards and altered art--so this is a good challenge.I used KandCo. paper from Life's Journey and a lot of Tim Holtz Distress ink.  I sprayed some of the flowers with glimmer mist and one of the flowers is made from a piece of fabric that was a gift from Scrappin Ky Mama.  I hope you enjoy this challenge and join us at    .

I have never really "mass"produced cards or invitations.I think the only thing I have done is treat bag toppers for a teacher.  One of my best friends from high school's daughter recently bought a beautiful restored Victorian home.  It's her first house purchase so we decided to have an Open House so everyone could see it.  Well,you know me----ADD is my middle name-----the new wore off all these little houses pretty quick.  But thank goodness I didn't try to make a really Victorian House.  But they are made,addressed,mailed and recieved.  So the point of this is---to all of you that do this on a regular basis----I  admire you.  Five or six of something may be ok----but more than that I better start months and months ahead and do a few at a time.  Thanks for stopping by.
