True Blue Love book & Pink Paper Flowers

Happy Wednesday : )

Now that I have my blog looking like I want (mucho thanks to my hubby) I thought I better put some of my scrappy projects on here. This first set of pictures are of a blue Love book I made during National Scrapbooking Day when I attended the weekend crop with some of my girlfriends...I am so addicted to this hobby that I drive 4 hours to attend this particular event at my favorite scrapbook store that I just love...I will do a post about that later on. Anyway...back to the Love the crop we were all given a packet of 5 pieces of paper that we could fold partially in half to make a pocket and the ring to bind it all together...that was it. It was up to us to scrap the papers up and make it our own. We had a time frame to work on this and I didn't start mine until there was less than 2 hours left...I was working on a book for my daughter...I will post pics of this later...all of us attending the crop voted by secret ballot on whose project we liked best...I was happy and thrilled that my fellow scrapbookers voted for me and I won : )  yay

This is the front of the book...I had these stamp shaped chipboard pieces that fit perfectly on the front. I put the Love stickers on and then inked the edges...I thought they turned out pretty cute.
I inked this chipboard flower too like I did the stamps on the front.
I love the brown lace...I am racking my brain to remember where I bought this as I am almost out of it : (

I just love how this book turned out...I have it displayed in my scrapbook room...I am planning on doing a post of my room later on...I have to pick it up a bit since I have been so busy making stuff for my Relay For Life basket.

The next couple of pictures are of a pink paper flower bucket I made for my friend. She has been going through a lot lately and I wanted to give her something to cheer her up : )

Yes this is another one of the French buckets I have left over from my wedding. I just couldn't stand the thought of selling them off so I have been hanging on to them using them for gifts like this.

This was for my friend Andrea..the breast cancer survivor..she loves all things pink & flip flops so that's why you see the pink playing cards and candy flip flops. I gave it to her around Easter so I had to throw the bunny in there too : )  This was fun to make and seeing the smile on her face was awesome.

I have sooo many pics of my scrappy projects to post~which is probably why I should have listened to my hubby and created this blog two years ago~but I will try not to bombard all of you with super long posts and will be diligent about posting everyday when I can. 

I will be pretty busy the next few days due to the Relay For Life happening this weekend...I will do a post about that on Sunday.

I also have to say that I am super excited to have my first official follower~that isn't my hubby~Trish from
visited my blog today and I was like a little kid at Christmas when I saw I had my first follower...thank you Trish and I am looking forward to getting to know you in the blog world...for those who haven't checked out her blog...please do's awesome and she is having an amazing giveaway~which I will hopefully win~

Have a great evening and come back tomorrow for some more scrappy pics : )
