Time Is Precious... Waste it Wisely! ♥



Isn't that an awesome quote? So so true though! I thought it was PERFECT for my little project I have to share today!


I have had a couple of canvas albums stashed in my drawer for a while now, and finally, I got the courage to get one out and alter it! Have you ever done one of these? If not, you should! They are so much fun! I started out by glimmer-misting the whole thing with several different colors. I know, scary, right? I'm always afraid that I might ruin something, but that's what crafting is all about... trial and error, right?

Once I added, subtracted, painted, misted some more, and glued everything into place, I was left with this fabulous mini album that I LOVE! Take a look at the inside...

 

 



So cute, right? I rarely scrap my own photos, but I have been hanging onto these precious photos waiting for the perfect moment to scrap them. When I got Little Yellow Bicycle's Saturday's collection, I KNEW it would be perfect for this project!

The photos in this album are from my cousins wedding this past September. My little Reagan was a flower girl. She and the sweet little Ring Bearer pretty much stole the show. They were just so adorable and made for perfect photos! I never thought that my daughter would be chasing boys at the age of 4, but she sure proved me wrong that day! It was cute though, so I can't complain ♥


Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I was able to inspire you to maybe try something new!

Make sure you check out all of the fabulous "Saturday's" projects on the Cord Camera Scrapbook Studio Blog!

Oh, and one more thing... did you see that Jinger Adams is having a design team call? I am so curious to see her new line of products! I'm sure they will be fabulous because she is one awesome lady! If you are crafty, make sure you check out her DT call! I have a feeling it's one you don't want to miss out on! ;-)
