Take Note

I've been making these message boards for a while and sold a couple last year at the craft show. Here are some newer ones I've made.

A recent project has been this monster message center. It's been at least a year I've had this monster frame. 24x36. Large! Marci and I bought the frame at Hobby Lobby and wanted to make message centers. I think at one point we thought chalkboard something, but I went the cork board route. The frame was gold, I painted it red. There are three elements to it, fabric covered cork, metal for magnets, then wipe board squares for written notes. I LOVE how it turned out! It hangs over my new dresser and looking at it makes me so happy!

Festive Crafts

I made this cute block flag and these wood stars to decorate my home for the month of July. I don't have much by way of patriotic stuff. I need to build my collection! I love how they turned out, they will stay up all month. Happy 4th of July!

Mini book for Marci

When Marci left I gave her a box of goodies to open each week for 4 weeks. A little something to remind her of me a bit each week! The first thing she opened was a mini book. Here are a few pages from that, excuse the bad photos!

Some scrap pages...

Here are some pages I made a while back.

This is one of my sweet E, love those tender times when they are so small.

In Q's kindergarten class they had disposable cameras and took photos of various activities. Great idea! I put them all together on a general layout.

Except this one because there were 'family' photos in there...

I tried a LO w/ those protective pages that are divided. It's a little challenging to think in 'boxes', but I like how it turned out.

And a quick one of Matt's 35th bday.
