Twilight Mini Album

I had never participated in a SWAP before, nor heard of a paperbag mini album. When I saw that someone was doing a Twilight Paperbag Mini Album swap I thought it sounded like something different and fun. This is my finished mini album I'll be mailing out this week to my partner and she'll be mailing hers to me. I used paper from the Immortal Stack you can get at Joanne's. The chess pieces I used my cricut to make from a file created by Makeupgirl217 who has her own website:
This has inspired my sister and I to do at least an overnight visit to Forks for fun since we live in the state of Washington. We'll then do our own mini albums / scrapbook album using pictures we took etc. I live in the area it was filmed along the Gorge and not far from the high school (Kalama) you see in all the outside shots. I'm amazed at how many pictures you can put into one of these albums by the time you add tags etc.

Scrapbook Page for Circle Contest

My first real scrapbook page. I used the Cricut Imagine for the butterfly, Friends, purse, and two little girls. I also used my sewing machine to do a zigzag stitch and then a straight stitch. You can't tell, but I also used glimmer mist on the butterfly and ink to edge the blue edges of everything. I think it came out pretty good for my first one. Now I'll have to find pictures to put in it! haha :)

Time to start posting

I just got my Imagine back or I should say replaced. It had a hardware problem. So far so good with the new one though. Made a card last night for my sister just for fun to send to her. She has red hair and I have blonde. I have a Twilight Album I need to work on for a swap I'm in. Will get some pictures of that up here soon too. My goal is to start taking pictures of my projects and posting them on here. Oddly enough, I have not taken any pics of my classroom that has decorations in it that I've done via my cricut/Imagine. :) So.. we'll see if I can keep to my goal on doing better on here.
