In the stitching department, I have no photos to share. But I have been busy. I stitched something for a Halloween exchange I'm participating in, now I just need to do the finishing. I have also selected and ordered frames for 4 pieces. This morning I pinned to pieces to their boards, and adjusted the pinning on one side of a third piece that my dad had so sweetly started for me. One more piece to pin (and it's a huge one) and then I'll head back over to Mom and Dad's sometime in the next couple of weeks so that Dad can finish the framing. I've decided to enter one piece in this year's state fair. That is, I'm going to enter if I successfully managed to properly complete my entry form. I'm pretty sure I did, but sorting through all those online instructions and picking categories can be a bit daunting. I have pulled out a piece I started last September to work on for the rest of the week, so I'll post photos of it next week, most likely.
In the scrapping department, I finished a mini album documenting the Aloha themed bridal shower that was thrown for me back in March. I'm super excited about this little album. It might not be anything fancy, but it was so much fun to put together. I don't do a lot of mini albums, so this was a wonderful break from my usual 12x12 layouts.
See what I mean about the little pockets and inserts? My photos showing the door prizes and room decorations can be tucked neatly inside of the little map image (this came in very handy later on in the album as I will explain later).
I really am so very fortunate to have such wonderful friends from so many areas of my life.
Okay, that's half the album, and a ton of photos! I'll post the second half of the album by the end of the week. I am thinking that the next thing I will tackle scrapwise are the photos from our rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. I am seriously tempted to make another mini album for those photos. Of course, I'd want to find another Farmhouse album. Wonder how hard that will be. Til next time, I hope everyone has a little time to be creative!
