I started by making glue dots and other glue swirls and lines. I bought a bottle of Aleene's Tack It Over & Over and made swirls, lines and little dots on a paper strip left over from my Xyron X sticker machine. Usually I use parchment paper, but this works much better:
I also had a crafting get-together Friday night, nothing fancy, just getting together with friends to chat and work on various projects. My friend Elizabeth was kind enough to teach me how to knit! I was so surprised at how easy it was (I've always been intimidated by knitting, although I did know how to crochet once; a really long line was all I could do, but I was crocheting!) and it was fun to learn. I do need to pay more attention though, hee, I'd start talking and the next thing I knew I had a mess and would have to hand it to E to ask her fix it. :D It was so much fun though, and ta da! my little flag!
Saturday was a pajama day as Tessie wasn't feeling well; we just stayed home in jammies all day, played, watched movies and got crafty:
Sunday was also quiet, although we did leave the house! T and I went grocery shopping while Daddy was at church (due to her fever on Saturday I didn't want to get anyone else sick), then came home to play with Honey. After a family walk (insisted on by Honey, whose Australian Shepherd traits came out in full force as she was herding me to the door, sheesh), Tessie and I started playing again. She played with some washi tape freebies (from KawaiiTape on Etsy) while I started dinner and a new set of layouts. I ended up making two double layouts from one kit, and still have enough left over to make two more pages! I used Happy Together (Heidi Larssen) by Fancy Pants Designs to create these:
I love the glitter cuts included in the kit, I think I used all except for one of them. The colors of this whole collection went so well with our family pictures taken at the McKinney Cotton Mill in September, 2010.
I have decided that I love to scrap big pictures. Love them.

After getting those layouts done I realized I'm almost done with T's second year album, which means I'm almost caught up! I need to order some more pictures and then I'll be good to go. Her birthday is coming up, as well as my father's wedding (I'm working on the table centerpieces for them), so I might not have a lot of time to work on them, but who knows. I hope everyone had a good weekend, and thank you for stopping by!
