School is out for the summer and I have a little time on my hands. Not much, but a little. I made some little photo albums today for my family. My husband and I are traveling to Florida soon for a week's stay at Navarre Beach. His sister, her husband, 3 grown children and their spouses, 3 granddaughters and 1 grandson, his brother and SIL and their two girls and my daughter are all going. It will be a huge family affair. I am really looking forward to it, but I have so much to do before we leave and so little time! Today, I made little photo albums for each family. I used the cheap little plastic albums from Target or Walmart and decorated and altered them into cute little "holding" albums. I call them "holding" albums because they can hold the pictures until they get properly scrapbooked (or not). I made these for my class at the end of the year. I am posting photos of the student albums and then the ones I made for family. By the way, they are a surprise so don't tell them!
Family albums I can't post them all because for some reason, they are rotating sideways when I upload them!
So then I added some jute rope and hot glued some seashells. I think it dressed them up just perfectly!
Here is the latest P2P layout for the past week. We are going on a scrapbooking retreat this weekend! Yea! Fri. through Sun. nights at Arbor House Retreat House in Lake Charles, LA. Ten of us and two Margarita machines-yahooo!
After the drought we have had for the past three years, I won't ever say rain, rain go away, but hopefully we won't need a boat to get around. Our school flooded today-4-5 inches of water in about 13 classrooms including the library. Our pond that was so dry in November is now way up high on the banks and actually got within about 6 inches of our driveway.
My husband came home at lunch and started looking for our dog. Well, he could hear his nails tapping and thought he was upstairs, so he went up and no Spencer. But it kept sounding like he was upstairs-tap, tap, tap. My hubby finally went into the bathroom and found the Spenster in the bathtub! Smart dog-he must have heard them on the radio saying that an inside bathroom with no window was the safest place in the house! How he shut the door is still a mystery! Any way, hope you enjoy our rain photos. By the way, forecast for tomorrow is.........more rain!
The sidewalk by my classroom-what you can't see a sidewalk? Well it's there under about 8 inches of water!
Since my craft room is still not quite finished, I have been on a hiatus from crafting. Yes, it is driving me crazy, but I know that it will all be worth it. I think I will try to post my daily photos here. I also have a few digital layouts from my picture a day challenge I need to post. Bear with me, as things start to settle down.
The geese came way up on the point yesterday. Guess they are feeling more and more comfortable here. We have a pair that often overnight, but most of them fly to another spot to sleep. They usually come back the next day. I love to watch them land and take off-very cool.
Of course, our Spencer does not like them coming in his yard. They can stay in the pond and he is fine with that, but they can not get in his yard. So funny!
And Buddy-well, Buddy chases everything-including us, usually with a pinecone in his mouth!
Wonder what my photo will be for today? These were all from Sun., Jan. 29.
