Baby Shower

In the middle of all the rush and holiday cheer we are getting ready for the baby shower of a friend of my oldest daughter.  The theme is Dr. Seuss. So I took a break from my regular scrapbooking and worked on a shower umbrella.  The umbrella itself is covered with rows of white eyelet sewn right onto the umbrella.  Once you have that the umbrella can be used over and over again.  Different flowers and ribbons are added to suit the occasion.  For this shower  I used primary colored  ribbons.  They are tied just under the first row of eyelet and hang down  past the edge of the umbrella.

Acrylic Soccer album

OK - So I guess that I am going to give this blogging thing a shot.  I have been scrapbooking for a few years and always love to see what everyone else is creating.  Now my babies are off at college so I plan to spend more time scrapbooking and posting.

Some of my favorite lines of paper are Bo Bunny, My Minds Eye, and Best Creation.  Lately I have been trying some acrylic albums and mini albums.  Photos will be posted soon.
