Time Out

I took an "unofficial" leave of absence last week from CT duties and just tried to get caught up with getting ready for Christmas and New Years. I got presents made and sent off to my American family, even got a baby mini album made for my best friend who's brother just had a new baby boy. I even got my Christmas and New Years cards designed, but not yet all sent...

I generally don't use quick pages, how about you? But I have an incredible love for the name badge albums over at Shabby Princess. Have you seen these?

I made one a few years ago, then made two last week. One was for the baby mini album and one was a kind of year in review mini album - a Christmas gift for my parents. We don't have the exact size of name badges required, but the pages can be resized easily, then I mount them on cardstock. I hope my parents like it.

Shabby Princess has some cute -- extremely cute -- paper crafting projects like these tea cups.

I really went crazy in her shop last week. I'm going to make this wallet album

for my husband as a Christmas gift as well. In the past I've made several of her mint tin albums as well. Sometimes its just fun to have some scrapbooking projects that I can actually hold in my hands. (I don't print out very many of my pages. Not good, I know.)

After all of that, I only got one page made over the past two weeks. A pair of Christmas photos of my daughter from years gone by.

I'm not sure when I'll be posting again. I HOPE its before the end of the year, but maybe not before Christmas.

I wish you each a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful, blessed holiday season. Thank you so much for being a part of my little blog here. I always love to hear from you when you stop by.
