Wow! A New Year!

Where did the time go? I meant to add so many things last month and time just got away from me!

So, let me take a moment and wish you all a VERY happy new year! May 2009 be filled with lots of magical memories and many happy surprises!

Now, let me get caught up a's what I worked on last month!

First off, these were gifts that I made for family and friends. I used a paper pack (that I cannot remember who makes) that I got with my gift certificate I won from Crazy for Scrapbooks.
They are altered CD cases and I made CDs of my favourite Christmas songs long with the words to them.

They were a big hit and I thought I wish I would have thought of it sooner as it would have made an adorable secret sister it up with some hot cocoa and little candles to make a caroling night kit!

This I made for my uses the CTMH Silhouette papers and a 3x3 album. It has pictures of my girls and nephew on the front pages, then a little monthly calendar in the rest of the pages, plus a tag for each month to pull out for special days.

My sister got an accordion album commemorating my nephew's first Christmas. I LOVE how this turned out! I used a CTMH 9x9 accordion album and the Aspen papers!

The last picture is a toilet paper tube tag holder....LOVE these! So cute and doesn't everyone have accesiblility to these? Just flatten it out and cover with paper!

Buckeyes! I make them every year, it is the only thing Stan requests and seriously, can you call yourself an Ohioan if you don't make a good buckeye?

And my adorable little nephew enjoying his first!

And last but not least, the album I made for my dad....this is an ongoing project, as he gives me more photos I'll keep adding them, but for now, this is what he got....
THis is the only picture of my grandfather. It's my parents wedding day-kinda wierd to scrap it when they have been divorced 26 years, BUT wanted to preserve Grandpa's picture. I love how perfect the CTMH Silhouette papers were for this, then I sprayed it with a bit of black gold glimmer mist and IRL it is even more gorgeous!

Also, while I was at Crazy for Scrapbooks I found Black River Pirates taught/coached there 31 years, I graduated from there, um awhile back so it was perfect for the teaching and coaching pics he gave me!
