I am going to be super busy with my daughter's bowling birthday party today, but I planned ahead so I could get some fun projects completed during the crop. I set aside some photos, paper and layout sketches so I can maximize my crafting time before and after the party. My goal is to share 5 projects with you today. (We will be posting our projects as we finish them. I will add my new projects at the end of this post)

Now on to my projects for the day...Wish me luck getting to 5

PROJECT #1: Let down your hair.

I made this fun scrapbook page of my daughter the day the Disney movie, Tangled, came out. We had to see it opening day so we went with a close friend and her daughter. For the page I wanted a large statement and felt "Let down your hair" was just right. I cut it with Cursive 101. I also used a torn edge o the paper for fun. I used a tool form Creative memories for this. I got up and pieced this page together this morning after cutting out the words last night to prepare. I hope I make my goal of 5 projects today and I hope you will scrap along with us as well.

Project #2 I wish I could say I was posting a second project, but with the bowling birthday, shopping for Mother's Day and adding a new table to my scrapbook didn't happen. Soooooo  glad I got this first one done this morning.  Hope everyone had a great day. Join us tomorrow for our Mother's day themed gifts.
Now on to : Susan ~
