Good afternoon, ya'll! I had planned on putting up a project last night...buuuuuut.......I had somewhat of a crazy evening. I had my job interview yesterday morning at 10am. I didn't know that they were all showing up later, bc of some icy weather. So I was 10 minutes early and ended up sitting there for about an hour before they actually got around to interviewing me. I didn't really care that much, but it's not typically good for you to keep potential employees waiting like that. Doesn't look good. I also had my weight loss meeting last night and weigh-in. I LOST 5.2 lbs!!!!! WOOHOO!!! So excited about that. That leads me to my crazy evening....I was on a high from losing that much and was playing with Squirt, my lil Chihuahua. I was trying to avoid stepping on him and ended up rolling my left ankle and I really thought I had broken it. It hurt and I heard crackling, and them my foot went numb for a minute. I went to the doctor today and found out that it was just a bad sprain...not happy that I can't really work out, but SUPER glad it's not broken!!!
This is my lil guy when I first got him at 8 weeks.
This is my lil guy at almost 5 months.
I would also want to share a project that I did for my sister. I made 2 mini-albums for her of my niece and nephew (who stole my heart the moment I found out she was pregnant!!). It was fun, but challenging, since I had to hunt down pics of my nephew. I basically did a timeline of each of their lives. Since my niece was barely over a year old, hers wasn't that hard to do. They each had 12 pages and the albums are 3" x 3".
I loved him at this age!!! He was just so sweet!!! (he just turned 8)
She is a lil snobby Diva, but I love her like nothing else!!! (she'll be 3 in May)
I used 2 cardboard-ish type coasters that I purchased at the 100 Yen store in Japan. They are kind of similar to chipboard, but not quite as stiff. They use them as recyclable coasters. I used CTMH paper to cover the 2 coasters completely. I believe the coasters themselves were a little bit larger then 3" x 3". For the pages, I cut various colors of CTMH card stock at 3" x 3". I believe the pics are cut at 2" x 2" and the paper behind them is just an 1/8 of an inch larger. Then I just decorated each page with various embellishments. I used my eyelet hole punch to make the holes in each upper left corner. I did place eyelets in each page and on the front and back cover. I then used a key ring to hold all the pages together. The key ring is one that snaps shut (not your typical key ring) and I also got that in Japan.
I loved doing this project, bc I don't personally have kids and that's what I like to scrapbook. So I tend to adopt other peoples kids. Haha! So if you become my friend and have kids, I'll probably end up claiming them as well! Hehe!
