Mom's Scrapbook

Have you been wondering what I've been up to the last month or two? Well, I was working on PLENTY of scrappin' projects! All of which I will post photos of in the next few days! I completed a scrapbook for my husband, Brian, to take on his deployment. I hand stamped 100 Christmas cards to mail around the world. And the biggest two projects, by far, have been completing 2009 Scrapbooks for both my Mom and Mother-In-Law for their Christmas present. I had to get a photo of each of my Mom's grandkids (8) and each of my MIL's grandkids (7) for each month for all 12 months. I completed a 12x12 layout (2 pages) for each month for a total of 25 pages for the entire book. It was quite the undertaking (I think collecting the pictures from 4 sisters, 1 brother, and 2 sister-in-laws was the most difficult part of the project :-)). Thanks guys for mailing and e-mailing me TONS of photos!

I used the "Magic Moments" Scrapbook Kit from Close To My Heart, which is no longer available to purchase online (but I do have some in stock if you're interested!). The kit included all 24 level 1 scrapbook pages, a spool of ribbon, a jar of brads, eight sheets of stickers and 13 page protectors! Using a kit is a great way to easily make a full scrapbook (a whole year!) without having to put too much "thought" into it.

My goal was to mail it on 18 Dec, but I just finished it this afternoon. It will be in the mail first thing Monday morning (21 Dec) and I hope it makes it across the country to California by Christmas! I hope she loves it!
