Bad Blogger VERY bad blogger...

My apologies for not posting sooner.  I have no excuse except life happened...  I have several great shots of Reece and Miss Amanda on their last day together however we had techincal difficulties (read fried hard drive) they will show up soon I promise along with a bunch of cards I have recently done.  Well once we figure out what is wrong with the photoshop on this computer.

Without further ado here is what I worked on yesterday and finished today.  With only a few (3 off the top of my head) exceptions everything is from one of my favorite manufacturers ~ Fancy Pants.  I got the All Fall album, 8x8 paper pack, printed chipboard alphabet and printed chipboard shapes at the MemoryWorks Retreat (2009 I think) for a killer deal.  I used a kraft cardstock base (half Prism and half Archiver's) on all pages, ribbon & brads from my stash are used sparingly.  The 'crayons' on his First Grade page are ancient - purchased shortly after he was born if memory serves... The album covers 3 years of Preschool - Grade 12 and has 4 pages for activities etc at the back.  Since my son is only in Second grade I am way ahead of the game for once and will place one school picture from each year with limited journaling in this one and do more in depth stuff in his 12x12 album.  The design for these pages was found in the MiniMaps November 2006 it is the 4 across the bottom of the page there.
