Grandma & Hoot!!

My Grandma turned 90 this december; she's just an amazing person. You would NOT know that she is 90; I'm pretty lucky to have her genes, and super lucky to have her in my life. I'm working with some BoBunny papers for Scraptales, and they were perfect for this photo from her birthday. She's just beautiful.

I also found this awesome calendar at OwlBarn. She has the cutest owl links, and this fantastic calendar. You can pick from a bunch of different owl artwork, and download your own calendar. I printed mine on photo paper, and I used more of these cute BoBunny papers. They were perfect since they are all double sided. I put a little stamp on the back of each page for notes. I might add birthdays from each month later on. I used my new Cinch to bind it. Super fun. It stands upright fairly well since the cover and back are a heavy chipboard.

Go--make one already!

It's a free download--so get some owl love for 2011!

December Daily 27-31

Finished Album! Here's the last few pages. What an awesome project this has been. I'm already excited to get pages going for next year; my mom got me a Cinch, so thinking maybe I'll have finished loose pages, then bind them together at the end of the month (leaving me options to add full page photos, etc. It is fun to look through this already, and I know it will be even better when pulling it out next year. Good memories of a busy month!

So, just about done with my December Daily Album. It's been a blast. Haven't got any photos of it yet--but I've been getting photos into it!

I've decided to do the one little word thing with Ali Edwards this year too.


'Cause it makes me think of flylady's shiny sink, which I'm so trying for...clean, uncluttered, simple, shiny house.
'Cause it makes me think of the shiney happy people song. Holding hands.
'Cause it makes me want to SHINE.

And maybe that's just enough!

Happy New Year!!!
