Perfect End to a Challenging Week

It's just been one of those weeks. Monday... ALL week long! It's not a good sign when you have to give the Wal-Mart check-out girl some tips/hints on bagging your things. This proved to really test my patience. It was already a long day at the office. And I'd already put off grocery shopping too long "No hun, bagging the 8 gallon trash can isn't necessary, and you can just put some of those paper products down inside the trash can too." :o)

All in all it wasn't a horrible week! Everyday just felt like Monday to  me. But the week ended on a great note. I spent a few hours at my mom's house with my two sisters and my sister-in-law and my niece making some paper craft things from some kits I had purchased. I wanted to have this get-together on May 9th, National Scrapbook Day, but just couldn't get it scheduled. However, the whole month of May is considered National Scrapbook Month, so we just celebrated a little later than most.

The kits I'd previously done and posted here were made by everyone else. I was able to guide them through the steps quicker. We added extra pages to the Recipe Ring so that everyone had twice as many recipes pages. They turned out even better than before with some extra embellishments to the front covers.

We made a new kit too that I hadn't made before. It was an  adorable mini album. I can't wait to put some more of these together with the supplies I have to use as gifts, give-aways, or donations to a great cause. :o) Here are a few shots of some of my favorite pages from the mini album.

This album has the prettiest shades of pink, blue, green, teal, beige. It is perfect for small photos or memorabilia. Or just wrote your notes of love or appreciation on the blank pages.

My sisters got away before the camera came out. I think they had flash-backs from being forced into photos last week on Mother's Day. :o)  I did get a couple pictures though of my mother and my sister-in-law, Amber and niece, Nicole as they worked on their projects.

.  I hope you all had as great a weekend as I did and are ready for another great week ahead!

  1. I especially love the recipe books! I saw something similar at Target for about $15. The Target one wasn't nearly as cute as yours!

    Whenever I read posts about sisters, I wish I had a sister so badly! I always prayed for a sister, but God gave me three brothers instead. :)

    Hopefully this week is full of Saturdays instead of Mondays :).
