A Few Altered Items

Since I am on 3 different Altered/Hybrid teams I want to show off my recent projects that I have done for them. Let’s start with my new team …. Manda Bean!

This my first project for Manda, it is an album for Justine & Dominic:

It turned out SO cute and they both LOVED it. There is a spot on each page for them to journal and since I printed on Matte paper it will be easy to write with any type of pen.

I also made these cute 4×4 chipboard magnets for my mom. I used the chipboard coasters that I bought on eBay before Christmas. I got a 100 square and a 100 round so I need to start using them up LOL. I made little 4×4 layouts, then put them all on a page and printed them. It was very easy, I was done in less than a hour start to finish:

Onto my projects for Dani Mogstad:
On the Girl Talk blog I did a post on how to transform a Starbuck’s Frappacino Carrier into a storage space for extra hybrid supplies

I also put together this chipboard album of our 2005 Family Reunion for my mom:

Last but not least, Traci Reed
On the Hawt Mama blog there is instruction to cover a little wooden purse that I found at Michael’s a while ago. It turned out really adorable and is the perfect size for a few pens and some envelopes for my desk.

and then I made ANOTHER chipboard album … this time with the pictures from Ellie’s birthday:

It has been a busy month that is for sure … and with National Scrapbooking Day on Saturday I am sure I will have a bunch more stuff to show off soon.

Ellie turned 4!

Oops – I guess since I didn’t blog last month I forgot to mention that Ellie has turned 4!! She had a fantastic birthday with her cousin Lillian and a few friends. Since Ellie and Lillian are only 6 weeks apart we chose a date in between both birthdays to have a party at Grandma’s house. The girls wanted it to be a Princess Party. So Grandma decorated the dining room and turned it into a Princess dressing room, with a rack of play clothes, a table full of jewelry and tiara and of course a great big mirror to admire their new attire.

Princess Justine arrived to help the girls get dressed and they each took a photo with her to go into their craft project (a foam Princess Carriage frame). Then she read them the Princess and the Pea while Sara and I served the girls snacks on Grandma’s china and punch in champagne glasses. When the girls finished eating their fruit tarts and heart shaped sandwiches we opened gifts. Ellie and Lillian sat on their thrones and everyone was able to watch them open the gifts.

The crowing moments was when each girl was presented with their very own cake. I had made 2 pillow shaped cakes, complete with tassels and then placed a real tiara on top. Instead of cutting into the beautiful cakes we gave each of the guests a cupcake, which was SO much easier.

Each little princess left with their craft and a goody bag filled with princess jewelry & makeup. It was a wonderful party and everyone had SO much fun!!

My fellow CT members on Dani Mogstad’s team have made some adorable pages from the party:
