It's graduation season... so why am I scrapping in reds and purples? Let me tell ya why... I have two custom orders for graduation albums to finish before next week. I've been scrapping like a mad woman lately (LOL!) so I ran out of blank board books that I LOVE to alter. I decided to try a new vendor for my book bases, so I looked up pricing with a company that I haven't ordered anything from since 2005. Lo and behold, they offer a better price on my beloved little board books. Order placed, I'm happy. Right? Not quite. Long story short, they failed to update my address (I've moved 3 times since 2005!) and sent my whole order to a house that's an hour away from me, to some people who are probably wondering what the heck they are supposed to do with these 15 weird little books, a pack of funky paper and a 5 yard spool of ribbon. So... the problem has been rectified, but I still have 2 more days before my shipment arrives.
In the meantime, I couldn't just SIT there, so I put together this funky little album. It's purse shaped, 6 panels, and I used some retired Junkitz paper. The red and purple, of course, remind me of the Red Hat Society. I didn't want to make it only for that, so I used a general "Sassy/Diva" theme. I wasn't sure I was going to like it, since I'm more of a blue/green/brown kinda gal, but I think it's just so FUN! I'm quite happy with it, it was nice to step away from my color comfort zone.
Now, where is my supply order?!
