I'm Baaaack!

Yesterday hubby and I celebrated our 13th anniversary. I got beautiful red roses and I thought I would share them with you. Aren't they purty??? Silly me had booked my evening so we went out to lunch instead. Olive Garden's Chicken Crostina is quite yummy!

Our visit to the church over the weekend went well. We need to head back out there again tomorrow night to meet with the board.
Here is a project we will be doing for the next host club gathering. I bought these small scrapbooks awhile ago and they are almost the same size as the 5x5 Art journals in the SU mini catalog. The covers are red and I tried to take one apart to cover it but it didn't work very well and was way too time consuming to do at our meeting. So it is covered in Au Chocolat paper with accents of vanilla and real red. The flower is from the Office Accoutrement set. For the memo tag I used the bracketed memo stamp in the set and punched it out with the large oval punch. It is layered on a key tag punch.
The side tabs are made with the round tab punch from the mini catalog and I alternated chocolate chip and real red tabs. I plan to use mine as a way to keep notes and ideas that are stamping related. It is also a good way to keep track of things you already have so you don't buy duplicates as I have been known to do.
I hope to post as usual this week but we
have lots going on. My mom comes from Germany on Thursday, my son Josh has his 5th grade band concert that same day, Wednesday we go back out to visit that church and more family comes for the weekend. Whew!
Have a wonderful day!!

Happy anniversary. The flowers are beautiful. Olive Garden any time of day is good. Glad you got some time together. I just got 3 of the 5 x 5 albums from SU. I can't wait to use them. I plan to make recipe books out of mine.

Happy anniversary Tracy! Those roses are just gorgeous!

Love your little book. Red is such a pretty accent against the chocolate and vanilla. Great minds think alike as I am using mine to track my purchases too. I think I finally figured that I needed to do this after having duplicates of many things (too many to count).
