our little star


that making memories baby paper again.... i love this particular paper. all those polka dots - so cute. You know i had never bought a pack of patterned paper before this one. I'd always picked out paper by the sheet. I was never sure I'd use up a whole collection of papers - probably cos I'd never actually gotten this much scrapbooking done before! Yesterday, while i was out at Target, I looked for the girl paper - of course it wasn't there anymore. I coulda kicked myself for not buying it when i saw it. I learned long ago if you don't get it when you see it you might as well forget it! Oh well - i'm sure by the time i need the girl paper, i will find i have enough anyway. The boy stuff is always the problem - never girl stuff. I also used a doodlebug embellishment (the star in the upper right hand corner of the right page - can you see it?) as well as some K&Company "Proverbs to Go". I'd bought those proverbs on sale when the store was closing. They were quite popular at the time - the little strips of paper with preprinted things on them. I really loved the Proverbs version of this line - they seemed like chinese fortune cookie fortunes - all packaged up in a chinese food take out container. i thought let me see if i can find a few that would be appropos for this album. There are 400 two-sided pieces in the container - and i looked through them all to find suitable ones.
Yes - i'm nuts.

Very cute! What a good example you are being!! I hear you with the paper packs...it has to be a really good one before I will buy it..but then again, I have to place to buy "by the sheet" paper anymore, so I guess packs will be in my future more and more! Kerilou
