December 2006 LOs

Just posting some LOs.  The first is from Tamara's Youth Singers Show.  She was in the kidzxpress division that year.  Her first big show.  During the show you could see the excitement and the nervousness.

Then I made two pages of Christmas Day, because I started a Christmas only album.  So one page will go in the Christmas album and the other will go in the regular everyday album.

You will see that I have painted the edges of the pictures of one page (while they were attached to the page).  However, the effect didn't turn out the way I wanted, so I 'fixed' it with adding some paper to matte and embellish the pictures.  I think it turned out better than be before.

And then the next layout was during the Christmas holidays when my future (now present) in-laws came to visit.

Lately I've been checking out Tim Holz and the way he does projects that are 'shabby chic'.  Kinda like the edgy look of that and I want to try it out.  He seems to create a lot with cut outs from Sizzix.  But I already have a Cricut and I find buying cartridges so expensive.  I want to find a way to imitate the look without it being so expensive and have a couple of ideas that may work.  So hopefully I can try that experiment successfully and can post some future LOs on here with that style.

In the meantime, trying to catch up on making LOs and keeping up with my busy family and the coming Christmas season.  =) Lisa
