365 Cards - Day 153 - Tag You're It and other stuff...

I stayed home with a sick child today. My youngest has strep. YUK. On the up side, I got to play with my computer and paper. I was able to get some envelopes addressed for the Opus Gluei give-away. I won't show the pictures of the goodies being packed. I want them to be surprised. It should only be another day or two before they go out in the mail.

I also worked on the base for a Disney album for our coming vacation.

I happened to have a Disney Park Guide (brochure) from a previous trip. It measures 9x4, so I made my pages to fit. I also used white card stock and made a background overlay with the words "Disney World 2009" repeated in two different fonts.

I used a couple different frames for the different parks and restaurants that we have reservations at. Plus I made a cool airplane page. The girls are really looking forward to flying down there.

I still have to punch holes and maybe make a few more filler pages.

I was inspired by Lauren.
She made a couple of kickin' vacation albums built around brochures.

You can see one here and another here.
She has a fantastic creative flair. Thanks Lauren.

I will probably make a kit to take with me on vacation that is similar to Lauren's. Scissors, glue, stapler, rub-ons, pen. I don't know about the DYMO. Jury's still out.

Mine won't be nearly as cool. But it'll get done this time. Sooner.

The challenge today on 365 Cards was to use a tag on your card.

I used up some scraps that have been in my drawer for a while.

There is a bit of Little Yellow Bicycle, some other unknown bits of paper and I don't know the larger background paper.

The stamps are Unity. I am in the monthly club. AND holy moly is it ever a great deal.

You really have to check them out.

A little random bling and a scrap of fiber.

I also worked on a couple of Christmas albums from last year.

One for my mom and one for my sister.

I will show you them in a couple days.

Or weeks. We'll see how it goes.

Thanks for looking.

I can't wait to see your albums and the girls are going to have so much fun filling their Disney ones. What a cool mom you are!

Love the card too, by the way, excellent colors and style!
