Paper Bag Album

I just completed a challenge to make a paper bag album. I've never done one of these before so I thought it would be fun. I used pictures from our trip to San Diego. Here is the cover.

Here is a slide show of the other pages:

Teacher Appreciation

Teacher Appreciat-ion week was last week and I usually try to make a little something for the amazing people I work with. Last year I made post-it note holders and before that, I made them altered clipboards. Today, I was talking to one of the teachers and I noticed she had her clipboard on her desk and it had papers on it :) I was pleased to see that someone was using the gift I had given them almost 3 years ago! So this is what I made them this year: a photo clip and a magnet. Both are very easy to make. I just took a jumbo binder clip and put paper & some other decorations on it. Then, your photo goes in between the metal part. You don't use it as a regular binder clip (I had one teacher who was a little confused by this :) The magnets are clear stones with patterned paper glued to the bottom and a magnet stuck on the back. I also did this for the Scrap it Forward challenge. Thanks for looking!

Celebrating Mothers Blog Hop

At JMS the DT love our moms and to show our appreciation for everything mothers do we are celebrating mothers in our blog hop this week. The hop officially kicks off at 9 am (NFLD time zone), and ends at Midnight (NFLD time zone). There are 18 stops along the way, some have blog candy up for grabs (but you'll have to find them for yourselves as we don't want to ruin the fun!). In your travels don't forget to collect the words to complete the quote and take it back to Just My Sketches & the Blend to enter the major prize drawing worth $30! If you have only just found the blog hop, go back to JMS to the start. If you have been hopping along you will have come from Zarna.
Here is the sketch and my take on it. I used the song "A Mother's Prayer" by Celine Dion. The journaling is just a copy of the lyrics. The only thing I changed was the use of the word "she" in the lyrics to "them."
The words you need to collect from me are: always remember. Leave me a comment & I'll pick a winner on the 14th and send you a little blog candy for playing along! Thanks for hopping with us! Your next stop will be Margie.
