I'm so happy I figured out how to get the photos facing in the right directions - looks so much better. Amazing how the small things can make us so happy! Here is the accordion album that was part of the 9,000 piece kit from Cosmo Cricket. All the edges are distressed with a Close To My Heart brown ink pad. Most of the papers did not need a lot of distressing as they already had a "distressed" look to them. I did not use adhesive on the top of the photo frames and was careful to put the adhesive on the very outside edge of the frames so that a photo could be slid in. Photos can also be placed on the tags with journaling placed on the back of the tags.

Did you notice that photos are all oriented in the right direction? Yay!! I figured out how to get them rotated finally. Thanks for your patience!

I know many scrapbookers, stampers, cardmakers & papercrafters who have said in the past "I couldn't do that - I'm not creative!" And even experienced crafters sometimes feel "blocked" and at a a loss of how to compose a card or page. For anyone who wants to discover their creativity or recover it, check out The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. While I've not managed to get through the whole 12 week program, I love the book and it has helped me get over some hurdles. In looking back over my blog and the projects I've gotten done in the last 3 months its certainly got me working again! You can find the "Basic Tools"on http://www.theartistsway.com/ under the tab at the top of the home page.
