Saturday I attended an evening crop at my all-time favorite scrapbook store, Paradise Scrapbook Boutique, in Chico where I finally finished a cute little mini book (this is where the “not rushing” title comes in). Now quite a few of the supplies to make this little mini book were provided to attendees of the National Scrapbooking Day crop held on May 4th & 5th of this year. As I have been trying to be a good scrapper I have been trying to complete one project before I start another (ok, stop laughing). . . sooooooooo during that 2 day event – in between all the talking & eating I was working on another project (Contessa album by Paper Phenomenon) which was going to be a gift for a special girl in my son’s life. Welllllll . . . as things happen I began working on a couple of projects at the same (LOL – so maybe it’s really 4 or 5 projects) – sooooooooo without further ado here is the completed mini book:

Now as most of you know I am NOT an original thinker but I am an EXCELLENT copier and it is lucky for me that the owner of PSB, Karen, made an example for inspiration and I ((plus a few other people) copied her mini book. Isn’t it stunning. The paper line we were given is from Cosmo Cricket. I absolutely love the shabby chic look of it. I just may be keeping this album for myself! That’s all for now . . . I will be posting in a couple of days the pictures of the other project I completed this weekend (it was a very productive weekend-LOL) . . . take care and thanks for stopping by . . . till later . . .

WOW . . . I can’t believe how busy the last 2 weeks have been. The first week hubby & I had the Oroville Community 4th of July concerts to sing in and a 4th of July bbq & swim party at our close friends home in the Kelly Ridge area where we viewed, from one of their balcony’s, fireworks being shot over Oroville Dam. We then celebrated our 43rd annivsary on July 5th by going out to a great dinner. Then on Saturday we drove down to the bay area and visited with hubby’s brother & sister-in-law. Along comes Monday and I am off to my girlfriend Jan’s home where she is hosting a scrappy girls swim party & dinner (I got a bad sunburn). On Wednesday I am at my favorite scrapbook store, PSB, with friends trying to finish up a book that I started back in May. Then on Thursday our 6 year old granddaughter spent the day & night with us. I spent Saturday with the scrappy girls at Gina’s home where Eva taught us how to make tamales and spanish rice. Scrappy girl Donna taught us also how to make her refried beans. There were 7 of us and we each took home 24 handmade tamales (will post pictures at a later date). It was a lot of work, but fun. In between all these fun activities I have managed to continue going to workout at Curves 3 days each week, doing the cooking, cleaning, laundry, yard work, and making the following:

Well that’s all for today. Thanks for stopping by . . . till later . . . Hugs & Kisses . . . LindaB
