WOOHOO!!!!! I can't believe it myself!! I WON!!! TWICE in ONE week!!!! You know what they say about 3's!!! Should I try for the lottery this week??? :)
Okay, WHAT did I win????? Well, do you remember the post about the blog candy over at Colour de Jour?? I was one, of the 3, winners!!! Yippeee!! I can't WAIT to see my new bag!!! Oh, you can be SURE I'll share pics when I get it!!! :)
THEN, today I went to a scrapbooking event. It was a scrapbooking retreat from Friday thru Sunday. I wasn't able to go Friday or Saturday (Friday I was working and Saturday, originally I had other plans but ended up being SO tired--this cold is just diggin' in with both feet so to speak--I slept ALL DAY, and I mean ALL DAY into Sunday morning---but I went down today and this is what I WON!!!

This bag with all these goodies inside!!
I swear I think each of the pockets had SOMETHING in it!!!
I got a few pages done for a friend's book that I've been TRYING to work on and get back to her but I didn't bring enough of the 'right' paper so I started working on my Christmas book for, ahem.....2005....yes, thats right......SHHHHH!
I got my mom's done that year, before they left I think, or at least shortly there after....I just haven't worked on mine. I am now. That's all that matters. Right??
I brought minimal, and I mean MINIMAL supplies so I still need to do my journaling and add embellishments BUT I'm started!! :)
AND the BEST thing is......I'm getting the scrapbooking 'feeling' back!!!!
I've ALMOST completed the baby book (last post), although I DID give it to her. I owe her, I think, three Holidays. You know what my mom says??? 'I'd rather owe it to ya than cheat ya out of it.' Fresh huh?!
Anyways, she liked it.. Yeaaaahhhh!!! I took pics before I brought it in so here goes:
(I know, some of these are repeats but this is how they look IN the book.)

1 Month Old

2 Months Old

3 Months Old

4 Months Old
(and my least favorite page). I was trying to stay with the 'theme' of each sticker...this one had blue, red and yellow rainbows with clouds.

5 Months Old

6 Months Old
(and a REAL crappy picture! But it's the only one I've got. Sorry)

7 Months Old

8 Months Old

9 Months Old

10 Months Old

11 Months Old

First Halloween-
I don't know that they actually dressed her up but figured I'd do it anyways.
These last pages (Holidays) are SUPER simple. All I did was use a paper pack I got from JoAnn Fabric, a Debbie Mumm Harvest & Holiday pack, and cut them up to fit where I needed. QUICK and EASY!!
First Thanksgiving
REALLY simple. I was SERIOUSLY losing steam by this point. Can you tell?!
....and finally First Christmas. I'll probably cut a green square or rectangle for her to add to this page.
So there you have it. I'm SO DONE with this post. It took FOREVER for the pics to download. UGH. It's alright though...I've been reorganizing my work space and putting paper scraps (from this album) away!!
Leave a comment, let me know what you think. Suggestions and ideas are ALWAYS welcome!!
Thanks for stopping by!
I used a variety of papers for this project. I TRIED to use as many scraps as I could but also used newer paperes too. Some are CTMH, SU!, My Minds Eye, Debbie Mumm etc...
