Fall Fun




Here is a little tag book that I put together yesterday. It is the same concept as the birthday book I posted a few weeks ago. The base is orange card stock cut in 3 x 6" pieces and then cut to look like a big tag. I punched one hole and used a ring to join this mini book together. I accented with a few tags, stickers and buttons. This particular day was a day a few years ago that we took one of our nephews to the pumpkin patch with us. We had so much fun but it was bitterly cold that day. The wind was crazy! But we decided to go have some hot chocolate and warm up a bit afterwards. I just love going to the pumpkin patch! Pretty soon my girls are going to be too old to do that. *sniff*
Since my girls have taken up scrapbooking, for Christmas we purchased this great little Epson 4x6 photo printer. It is great and delivers good quality photos, but the neatest thing is that I can make these little mini books so easy! I just put my memory card from my camera into the printer and tell it what size of photo I want to print. It really comes in handy when doing different little projects like this. I used it quite a bit in the Scrappin for Sam book I made a few posts ago.
My sister and I are off to Kansas City this afternoon. She had wanted to get out of town for a bit and I decided to take a day of vacation tomorrow. We have our evening and day tomorrow all planned out. I am so excited! I got on Priceline.com and named my price for a hotel...I got a $140 room for $65 in Crown Center! *woot* Hopefully the weather will be nice to us and we can get some fun pictures. Talk to you later!

How cool; I was just thinking last night, it takes me "forever" to complete anything. LOL
