Inspriation from SNS

Okay, it's 1:35am here on Monday morning and I just created something that inspired me from I don't know if I'll be able to complete the idea for the ENTIRE year of 2008, but I'm going to try and at least get the month of January done! It's a great idea really, very neat and it seems like it would be easy, but I have to see! How hard must it be to take a picture and day, print it and then scrap it??

Go check out this blog: and scroll down to the entry on Dec 29th titled "January 1st DT Tutorial — Katie’s Photo-A-Day Album". It's really neat I tell ya! I just excited that I got inspired from this article and I had some things to get started. I didn't use the items on the list, but I improvised and this is what I came up with:

*I used some leftover chipboard from packaging and it was the perfect size (I had 2 of these) and then I found some papers and created. I used BG Motifica I had in my PP box and some cardstock (cream, white and olive green). I figured there were 31 days in January so I just alternated page colors. Traced my pages and cut those.

*Glued the BG paper to 1 chipboard, inked the edges w/ Colorbox brown ink,

*found a 7Gypsies card that was perfect for this, inked those edges and added the dates of January '08,

*had some SEI cardstock stickers and used that for my alphas and then I found some number stickers that I had purchased at Lowe's once for our mailbox and cut around the #'s a little closer.

*I then found some CI coasters and chose this one, used Glimmer Mist (latte) and let that dry. *Then took my SU scallop punch and punched a green piece, used pop-dots on the coaster and then you get that little flower.

*I then punched little teeny holes in each of the pages and then stuck black brads to bind it.

*I found some coordinating fiber for this, and see what I got!!

Now hopefully I can keep up with this. I might not get the pages done "daily" but I will eventually print my pictures and put them in for the ENTIRE month! these pictures from my niece who went with some family members (including DH) today to the HORSE HOLE (mud boggin' place). They tooled around in the 4wheelers and had a muddy time!! :) This is definately a place I want to go 4wheelin' when my time comes!!! Can't wait! Need to designate a set of clothes as my "riding" clothes!! This is what happened to our RZR and my DH!!!

Where was I during all this? I was dropping the kids off at my parents in Orlando till January 1st. Tomorrow DH and I (along w/ 2 other couples) are going to Pleasure Island for New Year's Eve. This will be the first time we've done anything like this and well, I hope it turns out okay! I'm sure I'll have some pix from fact, I need one for the my mini album, right?!
