Gotta Love the Everyday :: Aniyah + Jordyn

Happy Saturday, Bleeps! I have something to share that I've been working on for over a year! I know that's really a shame, but I'm proud that it's finally complete! Every holiday for the past year, I've been wanting to finish this project for my dear friend, Riscee. Yesterday, was her birthday and I finished! She'll get it a few days late, but I'm so relieved it's done. Although the photos I took are over a year old and her youngest is now walking, these photos will still be cherished memories. I only had a couple things to add and finally was satisfied and bound it all up with some linen ribbon.

Scrapbooking can be fun, but it's difficult to work on deadlines and scrapbook for others. It's very hard for me to sit down and complete one, even for myself. With design deadlines and other personal projects that I am working on (that one day you all will see), scrapbooking takes a back seat. I still create everyday, but that's more like the chicken noodle soup for my soul!

So, without further ado, here's my canvas album started over a year ago in Donna Downey's class!













Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
