About Me

My photo
Paonia, CO, United States
I have discovered that life is a roller coaster and I'm learning to enjoy the ride! I am a married mom of 4. I work part-time outside of the home and, of course, more that full time as a wife and mother! I do classes from my craft room in the basement...which is why we call it the "Craft Cave."

Yellowstone "Squash" book












Can you see the binder clip in these photos? (Remember, you can click on them for a larger view if you'd like.)I'm using it to hold the book open since I have not completed the front & back covers yet. The plan is to use a ribbon to tie it closed, or open. The book will lay flat when closed. Here you can see it open. Cool, huh? Dalene from A Scrapbooker's Dream in Delta showed me how to put this together. Last year Carl & I took off WITHOUT the kids on a brief trip to the Tetons and Yellowstone. So, finally I have put together a mini book of some of the photos we took. We had such good luck with wildlife viewing I hope we have a similar experience this year when we go back "kids in tow." Printing out the photos certainly helped to get everyone revved up to go, so let's say it was a blessing I didn't get around to it till now!
I am also happy to report I have figured out a way to print my photos in a variety of sizes using my photo printer and MSPublisher. At least I'm happy with it! How do you like the stamping in photo 2? Nice pics of DH too which is RARE!! He's one of those people that absolutely HATES to have his photo taken.

That is cool, Barb! Do you think you'll be doing a tutorial . . .? I'd love to see how that's made!

This is really neat. I agree with the tutorial! I'd love to make something like this for Father's Day.
Thanks, Barb!
