SCRAPBOOK SATURDAY

Okay all, I have been neglecting Scrapbook Saturday the last couple of weeks and need to make up for that - LOL! So, this week I will be sharing pages on both Saturday AND Sunday! Besides, it gives me a chance to share the incredibly yummy September kit from the Coconut Scrapshop, it is fabulous!!! It features papers from Mollie and Mac which are just gorgeous and the quality of the paper is really fantastic!! I have had a ball playing with it all and I am excited to share some of it with you today! If you are interested in learning more about Jen's wonderful kits (and let me tell ya, for the price they are PACKED full of goodies!) please head on over to the Coconut Scrapshop and check it out!! Also, sign up on the message board and come on over and chat and upload some of your favorite projects - we are a friendly group of gals who love to invite new members....and it's FREE!!!! There are some exciting things coming up over the next few weeks at the Coconut hangout but you can only play along if you are a member - so what are you waiting for???!!! Oh, you want to know about my pages! Okay, let me share and then get on over there! And, if you don't live in the U.S. no worries, we have lots of members from other countries as far away as Malaysia and it's really fun to learn and hear about other places and see other styles! Okay, nuff said!!! You will notice the pages I have posted here are not the traditional 12x12 that I normally post. Well, this kit features a fabulous clear scroll album that is brand new from Maya Road and I just had to play with it!!! So, I am making a special album about my own childhood and having quite a good time doing so!! I am not done yet with the whole thing, but I do have about eight pages completed, so I thought I would share these two today, two more tomorrow, and some more next weekend! The first page that you see above is actually the cover of the whole album but I wanted to share it as well even though there are no pics on it because I thought the SU! chipboard looks wonderful with all that stamping from the Fresh Cuts set, the gorgeous lace, and the paper from the kit! And, as you can see, I added several punched flowers with some bling, which really makes for an eye-catching cover. The second page is actually my mom holding me in Germany when I was two months old. The journaling is hidden away in a little pocket I made because it is personal to me, but at the same time can still be shared - KWIM? I used my Jumbo Eyelets, my punches, and my Build-a-Brads to add some nice accents to this page as well as the Top Note Die Cut from my Big Shot - just love it, it adds a lot, I think! I love the shape of this album and I am excited to share it with you - so make sure you pop on over tomorrow to see the next two pages!! Until then - toodles!
