I Scrapbooked!!

After I about had a heart attack that Cleveland wasn't going to get Brady Quinn, he FINALLY went to them in pick # 22 in the first round... can NOT believe he took that long. Anyway, to keep my nervous energy partly in check, I scrapbooked (is that a word??) yesterday. I am sooo behind in this task. I decided to do our cross-country trip for Thanksgiving last year. I used the Tickets & Tokens Simply Scrappin' Kit and found out that I LOVE IT!!! This was the first time that I had used a kit for a "real" scrapbook. I had used the Simply Scrappin' kits for cards and mini albums, but this was the first time I did a for-real album. Of course, I chose the 6x6 album... I did a 12x12 album once - NEVER AGAIN!! It took FOREVER!! Too big for my limited attention span. From then on, it was smaller albums only. I put only one event per book to keep me from going absolutely insane. For this book, I used the navy linen 6x6 ring brag book... so liking the ringed albums - SO easy to work with! I filled out the travel ticket sticker from the scrappin' kit and adhered it to the front. I ran wine narrow organdy ribbon around the front and added some grosgrain and one gingham knot to the mix. Then, in Whisper White craft ink, I stamped "06" on the front and "2006" on the spine. And my cover was done! For the inside, I used the SS kit paper plus Sentimental Journey patterned paper. I used a couple of Cranberry Crisp punched tags and tabs, but the rest was completely from the SS kit... TOTALLY using these again!!
