1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / My first scrapbook [Image obese for your viewing pleasure!] on: December 11, 2009 05:05:56 PM
So, I made an awesome (first time) scrapbook for my then-boyfriend and I's anniversary. We didn't quite last to that day, so I never gave him the book. I hate to throw away these pages even though it was a messy break-up, so I figured I'd share and maybe spark some ideas for everyone, I love looking at the other posts of layouts :]

The cover, has a senior picture of each of us with names, and the elementary school we met at.

He said the thing that got him interested in me was a conversation about his trip to New Orleans, so I printed off the pieces of it and glued them to cardstock in a fan display.

One of my favorite pages, our first date at the carnival.

I never got around to putting pictures on the page, but he was always cutting down trees, hoeing the garden, or putting up shelves.

The first page for prom

The other one, our school's colors were purple and gold. Another favorite page.

Our graduation page, I put a picture his grandma got of us kissing as everyone threw up their hat, and put our little announcement namecard things beside it.

I really like this page. He taught me how to fish, and so I caught a picture of him getting a stick, and then one of me to which I glued the back hook of a button cut in half (hard to explain but it looked like a hook) and stuck a huge fish on the end to make myself feel better about not catching anything.

One of the most terrifying drives of my life, he took me to the top of a ridge in the valley we live in, scary as you-know-what. Then we hiked down to the river and saw some spiffy cave drawings and whatnot.

The 4th of July page...we took so many pictures trying to get decent ones of the fireworks. The next day, I realized I had a fireworks setting on my camera xD


And some pressed plants from our camping trip over the 4th of July weekend.

Unfortunately I have tons more pictures for more pages, but I never got around to them. Enjoy!
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Inspired by another deadly make-up practice on: September 10, 2009 10:45:03 PM
Oh, this is my favorite time of year. I love the undead, almost as much as they love me, and I'm definitely pulling out the zombie costumes this year. I can't do it this gruesome for work, unfortunately, but I love doing this kinda stuff. Too bad its a little awkward at any other times of year!

By FAR my favorite day. It was Dress As Your Hall Day, and ours was "The Jungle". Some generic cliche used so seniors could dress in tiny loincloths? Nope! I suffered as a victim from The Ruins, and it was amazing! I was 'sunburnt', ravaged, bloody, and had vines like these everywhere :]

My bestest friend Andy

Some of the first testers.

Me at school for a spirit day Smiley

Andy, Ashley, and I on Dress As Your Hall Day (Haunted House). She wasn't a zombie until we stuck a piece of Andy on her, so it looks a little out of place Smiley
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Zucchini bread time! on: August 08, 2009 06:07:42 PM
Finally! The garden has given me a plethora of zucchini, squash, potatoes and sunflowers. Now, if only I had a good zucchini bread recipe!

I figure thats what the Food Network is for, but I had a few questions. Is it similar to banana bread, where the older the fruit the better? Just need to know if I should let the baseball-bat vegetable sit around for a bit before attacking it.

And should I freeze the loaves and then thaw before eating? I've heard that helps a great deal with retaining moisture.

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / New to scrapbooking...do I have to use page protectors? on: July 17, 2009 12:15:03 AM
Hey there! I just discovered the joys of scrapbooking, and am making a book for my boyfriend and I's anniversary. I bought a nice album on sale at Joann's, and it came with page protectors. The bad thing is, when I put just the pages in it seemed to be a tight fit. The pages sort of curl up and don't lay flat, if that makes sense at all. When I add 3d effects they really seem bunched up and really make things bulgy. Any way to fix this, or how do I not use page protectors?

I'm trying the slide lamp shade, and this tutorial (http://www.onedigitallife.com/2004/07/22/linked-slides-create-a-colorful-indoor-escape/) says I need 48-60 1.5" x 1.5" squares of heavy parchment white lumen paper for the backs of the slides.

Where can I get this? Thanks!
