What a beautiful girl!  And such a pretty hat.  Smiley
I wish I could have a goat friend (I hate to call my animals pets.. they're much more like members of the family!).  I'm so jealous!  Cheesy

That is so cool. I feel inspired to sneak images of fornicating animals into all of my projects from now on... wait... that sounded wrong... oh well Smiley

Ha ha, love it.  Grin

Ha ha, yeah this is an awesome chart.  I'm thinking that I will try to make some socks or leg warmers (because I really can't stand knitting socks!) for myself using a variation of this chart next winter.

striker923: Thanks!  It's my boyfriend's backyard.  He and his Dad designed and "crafted" it, if that's the correct term.  There's even a little pond with a waterfall and TONS of frogs in it behind him in the second photos (I think he's blocking it from view though!).  I'll tell them their yard got a compliment!  Smiley

Thanks for the feedback everyone.  Cheesy

hgddm: Those must be some HUGE shells you are finding!  We live in California by the beach and most of the shells shaped like this that I've found are tiny.  Tongue

Wow, this an amazing skirt!  I like your choice of color and how the ruffles are placed differently on the front and back.
I'm going to have to make one of these too.   Smiley

10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Shell Scrapbook :) on: April 11, 2011 10:29:32 PM

Here's my very first scrapbook... and it's constructed inside of a natural shell!  Grin  This one's *bursting* with memories.. literally!  Look at that shell!
I made this for my boyfriend for our first year together, about.. oh, a year and a half ago!  About time I post it, right?  I forgot to take pictures before I gave it to him, and he has been refusing to give it back to me for photos since.  (I had to sneak it off his desk!)  Smiley  I decorated the pages with images, shells, flowers, and assorted little items that I found or had kept from our adventures.

To all of you experienced scrapbookers -- I've got a question!  You know those little puffy white circles that you stick on the back of images, etc. and then to the page?  Well, I used those (can't remember the brand, sorry -- I picked them up at Michael's) and they started getting... "un-sticky" after a few months.  Can anyone recommend a brand that's of decent quality so that my next project won't be falling apart like this?  Or is this to be expected for this type of product?

I got the shell halves on Etsy, pre-drilled with tiny holes.  The seller (I'd have to look up the name) included some string and flowers as well.  A note for anyone looking to attach starfish to pages... they scratch the images!  Check out the second to last image with the huge starfish.  It didn't really cross my mind.. but, yep, it has scratched the opposite page.
I'm going to make another little book for our year 2.5 (I missed our year 2 -- damn you school!) coming up soon.  Smiley  I think I'm becoming addicted to scrapbooking -- I have built up quite a stash..

Here's the book and a few of the pages (I checked with him, and he's ok with posting these pages up here.. so, enjoy!):
