The Last Of My Acrylic Album

Before I get to the acrylic albums, let me show you this cute little ornament I made today...it's the first ornament I've ever made and I'm quite proud of it. I've been following the 12 Days of Christmas ornaments on the pink paislee blog (man, those ladies are mad talented and very creative) when I saw the first ornament posted by Danielle, I thought "hey, I have a box like that", so I decided to make my own! The cool thing about this little ornament is that it doubles as a gift box...how cute is that? I used pink paislee's tinsel town line here, some prima gems, heidi swapp and bazzill flowers, and of course ribbon from savvynsassy's December Snow Bunnies kit...this is my last month on their DT, too. (sniff, sniff)

Too bad I already have the color scheme picked out for my tree, I'm really diggin' the apple green and pink...hmmm, maybe next year!

OK, so like I said, this is also my last month with My Acrylic Album. It has truly been a pleasure creating for the team for the past 11 months. When I first started with them, I had never created an acrylic album, I'd used plenty of acrylic/clear products but my first acrylic album was this one. Now I have about 11 acrylic albums under my belt (and more to come because they are ever so addictive), and a couple of acrylic plaques...I've even designed an acrylic album for the company!! How awesome is that? So for all of you out there who are still scurred to try an acrylic album, I say go for it, there is no right or wrong way to do it!

This castle album is so cute; it's part of the new releases found here. When I received this in the mail, I knew what I wanted to do with it. I am the only female in a house with 3 males and "queen of the castle" automatically came to mind!

I wish I had the opportunity to take better photos of this, but I have been getting home from work later than normal, which means it's completely dark out, which means poor photo quality, but you get the gist of it.

I used Crate Paper's Prudence line along with K&Co's intricately designed die cut paper.

This is one of my fave pics of me taken at my sister's wedding in May 2007.

The one in the green was taken this Thanksgiving...I can tell I've gained weight since returning to work, which is why I will be working it out starting January 3rd (I picked that day because it's 7 months before my 35th birthday and I want to be 25 pounds lighter by then). Shoot, I'm trying to be a hot momma...know what I mean?

The large photo was taken this summer; I love it although I look tired, but what Xander was only 3 months old at the time, so that explains it! LOL!

To create the front and back covers, I applied the brick rub-on to the inside of the covers, then sprayed with adhesive and coated with glitter. To stop the glitter from flaking off, I lightly sprayed the surface with adhesive, then lightly heat embossed.

This is MAA's butterfly album found here. I just took it apart, used my crop-a-dile to punch a second hole and created name plaques for my goddaughter, my niece, and my 2 friend's daughters for Christmas.

This is my goddaughter's, I'll post the rest later.

Thanks for taking a peek!
