Tut Tut, Looks Like Rain (Name that Movie)






Kate is ready for the snow storm. She had just woke up from her nap, you can see that she took off her shoe and sock for entertainment while waiting for me to come get her. I didn't notice right away!

I have a few projects going on right now for other people (invitations, gift clock) but one for myself that I'm working on that I'm really excited about. A long time ago my favorite scrapbooker, Ali Edwards, had an article in Creating Keepsakes about a travel journal (see PDF of article here, 4th link down). She made a journal before traveling and filled it in with post cards, journaling, stuff that she picked up all while on her trip. I tore the article out with the hope that one day I could use the idea. I looked at the scrapbook store for an album that I liked but I didn't see one so I made my own (covered chipboard, hole punched paper...). Here is what I have so far.

  4. Jenn, I cut chipboard to the size I wanted and used a thin (almost like the thin handmade type)paper to cover the front, adhering with spray adhesive. I used scrapbook paper to line the inside of the covers.

  5. Oh, I think that I'm going to make a copy of an aged map of the area and use gesso or modge podge to put on the cover (kind of wrinkly and old looking).

  10. Okay,I have to stop just checking in on everyone and ask is any one going to name that movie!?!?!?!?! My only guess is Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day. I am quite rusty at this .. Ashley?

  11. Said by Christopher Robin who walked up and down under an umbrella while Winnie the Pooh hung from a blue balloon like a little cloud to raid the honey from the bees nest at the top of the tree in 100 acre wood in "Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree".
