onto the important stuff

OK, since many of the people who read this are of the scrapbooking variety, I figured I'd throw a little bone to you all. A little review if you will.

Finally got my copy of Donna Downey's "creative albums" on Monday and man has that girl got some mad skills. Creativity oozing from her pores (great visual, eh?) SO many cool ideas...all with the steps shown to create the mini masterpieces. Not only do they look amazing, they are completely doable and that's pretty important to this craft impaired individual.

Shows some variations on the "typical" mini album ideas as well as some cool new stuff that I've never seen before...albums made from floppy disks, paint chips, cigar boxes and my favorites, the rolodex album and mat board album (completely quick and easy but soooo fun looking).

Anywho, I completely recommend the book to any and all of my scrapping buddies. And one more thing, apparently Donna and I have this crazy, cool psychic connection thing. I bought some of those sliding metal binder clip thingies on Sunday (not knowing what I was going to use them FOR, just thought they were cool and super cheap) and just a day later, Donna shows me how to USE them on page 102. Nice Donna.

Cannot WAIT to get the Photo Decor book...that book is the whole reason I'm waiting to decorate this house, seriously.
