12 Days of Gifts: Project Life Album

Howdy! Welcome back for another edition of 12 Days of Christmas Gifts! Have you ever taken on a scrapbooking endeavor where you decided to create an album for someone to use — say, for a baby shower gift or a wedding gift? It’s quite the undertaking, yes?

This is one of the seven cards I made last week at my Crop… (and yes I’m just now getting around to posting it). I have to warn you that since I already fell off the blog-a-day posting challenge wagon — I probably will be a little scarce this week in posting. Don’t worry I won’t disappear altogether — at least I hope not — but I have three workshops this week. And that starts my marathon run of 10 events this month! Yahoo… but I’m probably going to be very pooped at the end of each day. Today I’m being a good little girl and getting a head start (what a concept!) on many of
