Photos, photos everywhere!

Hi everyone!!

How are we all this afternoon? Getting ready for a big weekend, or perhaps a quiet one at home. We will be having a peaceful weekend at home. Last night the crafting bug bit me. I have been printing out a few photos lately and they have been getting scattered all over my desk. So I thought I had better get my act together and organize some storage for them.

I have had the Kaisercraft Recipe Box for a long time. Initially I was going to use it to hold all my handmade cards, but because I make my cards a bit bulky it probably wouldn't hold that many. So I decided I would use it to hold all my photos instead. Now this idea has been sitting in my head for ages, so last night I decided to do something about it and make it. I am very pleased with the way it turned out.

The dividers aren't quite finished yet, I am going to add photos to them and mat it with brown cardstockI really do love the way this one turned out.

This morning we went to a class at the library called Wild about Dance. It was a free class as part of the school holiday program. It was supposed to be only for 5-8 year olds, but they let Miss Em play along as well. The girls had an absolute blast and danced their little hearts out. It was quite a fast paced dance but Kayla did extremely well. I think she would do great in a jazz class. Emily just bopped along to the beat, but when the part came to shake her hips she really let it rip...too cute. I didn't take my camera with me (silly me), but this was Emily about one hour after we came home...all tuckered out the poor little sweetie.

They got cute little wrist bands and a puzzle/colouring-in book for their participation, which the girls thought was the greatest thing ever. Tonight they were playing Dance Class in their bedroom and doing the routine again. I am sure we will keep hearing about it for the next long as they had fun that is all that matters.

Well I hope your weekend treats you well.
Until next time

Hi Renee I just love this, might snag your idea for mine tucked away in the cupboard. What I would love to know, is where did u get the clear crystal sprays. I found some once in blue I used on a monogram for a friend but have not been able to find them since and I sooo wanna get some more. Would really appreciate any info u can give me on them as I did not keep packaging either. Thanks so much
