Encyclopedia of Me

Over at www.acbaileydesigns.com on the consultant forum we are doing an"Encyclopedia of Me" challenge. Every week or so a new letter will be randomly picked. Think of words using that letter that best describe you, your lifestyle, feelings, what you like etc. - you get the picture. At the end of the alphabet you will have an album about "you". This is my title page. I used October Afternoon paper, some buttons and felt. My page size is 8x8. Perfect album size for a coffee table.
This was the first letter picked "m". These pages took no time at all to put together. I'm looking forward to the completed project.

This is the second letter picked "d". I will post my pages and the new "letter picked" in a timely manner. I hope some of you will join me in this project ( leave me a comment and let me know). So many times we are the ones taking all the photos and there is very little about us. Hope you are inspired to try this. Have a great day!!

October Afternoon/Weathervane

I have been working with this paper set and just love it. You can bet, you will be seeing more of Weathervane by October Afternoon. It is so "homey" and I like that. I love the browns, greens,blues and the golden yellow colors.
I used the Jenny Bowlin bingo card-just for that extra "fun" element.
You can get these products at www.acbaileydesigns.com. Stop by and say Hi. Have a great Saturday!

My Sweeties

These are couple layouts I did this past weekend. I love working with photos of my "grands". They are the best!!
The first one I used Sassafrass Lass and I love it. Isn't he just the cutest little thing!!

The second one is a quick one done with some pebbles paper I had. Added some ribbons and a journaling box.
Didn't take any time at all. Go get some photos and do a page-it will brighten your day.

It is time for kit of the month (KOTM) at ACBailey Designs. I had such a fun time working with snow flakes!! I used one on a lay out and that left me with 5 snowflakes. We don't get snow where I live - so what I'm I gonna do with 5 chipboard snowflakes? Ah, but I have 5 grands ( grand children) so I made picture frames for next years tree. They turned out so sparkley and pretty! Just like I imagined they would. Get on over to WWW.ACBaileyDesigns.com and get your Jan KOTM in the mail! Have a great day and go make something- you will feel better.
