I wanted to share a mini album that my DD (who is 10yrs old) taught a small group of us (mostly family & friends). I wrote about this on a earlier post. DD was wanting to do and teach a project. I gave her a summer kit. I had from when I use to sell TLC products. I added a few little extras.

I have to say she did an amazing job teaching the little class. She taught a mini tag album.

Here is my version of the album. I hope to give her more opportunities to create and teach little classes.

I wanted to share this. I am not sure what to call it. We finally decided on Zeborse. Yes, for Zebra and Horse. My oldest DD took these pictures of a Horse? Zebra? Anyway, We went about 5 minutes away from our suburbian home to the country. And one of the farmers has this Zeborse on their property. The kids were amazed by this. My youngest DD was in love!! She LOVES zebras and horses - so this animal is perfection to her.
If you know what this is Horse or Zebra we would love to know.*** I did some googling and I found this site on Zorse ***
So maybe that's what is .

It's Monday - So that means I have a new layout for the sketch that Pamela of Scrapbook Challenges has created.

Here is the sketch

Here is my layout. Now, the little boy is my DS and the guy with him is a friend of our family. DH, DS and our friend had a guys day out at a local car show. I working on some older pictures lately. It's been fun remembering the kids when they were so little.

So awhile back my sister and I went to the Scrapbook Expo. My sister insisted we take a few classes. We took a class by The Paper Craft Station called "All Mixed Up". Well, like most of the classes at expos not enough time. I decided to finish it up at home and I add a lot more to my album than the instruction told us to do. I like adding lots of little things to my albums. Over all it was a fun class.

Here is the Sisters mini album I made.

Wow! it seem like I haven't been on here in such a long time. Well, my company is finally all gone. We had family and friends over to celebrate DD graduation, also winning first place in the county at the movie awards -- for the movie - she & the rest of her gifted created. Our DS promotion and nomination to the gifted program.

I did squeeze in some scrapbooking in all the festivities. I did a layout using Scrapbook Challenges Sketch created by our talented leader Pamela. I usually post it on Mondays. I did a few mini albums I'll posted those in a bit.
Here is the sketch

Here is my layout. I have been wanting to scrap these pictures forever. I decided to do the title old school - I was inspired by the movie ad for Away We Go & the print ad for Huggies diapers. The flowers are I cut from fabric.

So, I'm feeling better today. I had a full and sick crazy last week. we're officially on summer break!! Yeah!! The graduation was fantastic! I loved that they did a flash back of each child and teacher from baby to current.

I have to share that on Tuesday my DD had her 5th grade social. A boy in her class gave her flowers. She was the only girl to receive flowers. To tell the truth - the boy has had a crush on her since 3rd grade. His mom told me at the graduation that he saved his money and tried to find her purple roses(her favorite color) but, couldn't find any. So, he got her these instead. How cute is that!!!

It's Monday! That means a new sketch and layout. Here is the sketch that Pamela of Scrapbook Challenges created.

Here is the layout I did. I love this layout because it includes all the grandparents in my children's lives. It's also a sweet picture of my girls and my mom who is no longer with us. She was so proud of the girls that day. She loved celebrating school accomplishments. The kids & I really miss her.

Close up of title. Roller Pink Thickers & Making Memories Sabrina tiny alphas

Close up of branches I drew & hand cut these. Then I stickled them because they needed a little something.

I'm not sure if you remember me telling you that I went to a Fiskateer flip flop crop last month. One of the challenges we had to do was create flip flops. These are my flip flops. I found the orange flip flops at Walmart. I used ribbons & fibers to decorate them. I also made some charms of Fiskars tools for them. I made them using Shrink film. I didn't win the contest. :( but, I did have fun creating the flip flops.

Close up of the four charms I created.
I drew & hand cut the charms. I first drew them on paper. Then, I traced the tools onto the shrink film with a sharpie. Then I used color pencils & Bic marks to color them. Then shrank them with my heat gun. I think they turned out cool!
If you create a layout using the sketch please link me to your creation. I would love to see it.
