Disney Scrapbook 1st 4 pages

I started a Disney scrapbook for my sils trip to dianey with her husband and 3 of the kids. They had never been as a family and I've never seen her have a photo album so thought she would like something she could enjoy instead of something she has to dust. Here are the 1st 4 pages. One the 1st one I added a picture of all of them standing in front of the castle. The second page will have a picture of the baby giving tigger a high 5. The 3rd picture is of the baby carrying around a stuffed mickey mouse. And the last picture will be put on the page of the baby sleeping with mickey and winnie the pooh in his crib.

I'm not doing the pages in any order. I have more done but still have to take pictures of them. I accidently already added pictures to some before I could take pictures of the pages so you'll get to see some of the munchkins. I'm only making an 8x8 album because I find the 12x12 akward and hard to store.

Sanman Halloween Exchange

My Sanman partner has received her exchange so I can post my card finish. Silly me forgot to take a picture of what I put in it lol. I made the card and wrapped her package like a piece of candy. It was a fun exchange. Hers to me was just as nice and the kids liked taking all my goodies. Nicholas (4) took the skeleton gloves she sent and Stephanie (7) took the note pad and pencils. She loves drawing. I made another for my 123 stitch Halloween exchange but we are both behind on sending so I can't post that one yet.

3rd Finish of the day!

This one has got to be my favorite piece I finished today. Stitched on 28ct evenweave from JCS magazine. Now it is ready to be hung on my Ornament Christmas Tree (well whenever we get to that time when the tree goes up lol) ~

2 of 3 finishes for the day

I have been getting some finishing done today. Ran over tho the Joanns and picked up some trim and then went over to Micheals who is having a sale on trim. The first is by Sanman Originals. I love the little bees. The second was in a European cross stitch magazine but it has been so long I din't even know which one. The frog is for my niece who loves green and frogs. Haven't decided on the bee one. Thought I would keep it and hang it during spring time. I'm posting the third finish above~

Autumn Stitching Finishes

I was in the mood to decorate so dug through my finished pieces and pulled out 2 autumn finishes. I discovered my strong dislike for the glue gun and sticky mat. Not a good combo for me. I had glue wrapped around my wedding ring and didn't realize it until 2 hours later.
