Gratitude Album for November Blog Challenge...

I hosted a Gratitude Blog Challenge over on my other blog. Here is the album that I put together for all the journaling and pictures.
I had so much fun with this album, because I didn't stick to any "rules". I just had fun. I will keep this on a shelf in my Scrap Space, but will put it out on the mantle or somewhere every November so that I can remember all that I was grateful for this last month.
There's also a new challenge going on for December - so check it out.
I will add album details later today.

Sweet 16 Album...

This is a very simple album that I completed as a gift for someone. I usually try to take pictures at an event and then make a small album of some sort for the person "of honor". I needed an album that was small because I really didn't have too many photos. I didn't like any of the 7x7
CM albums I had on hand (wrong colors), so Desiree offered me a few choices. She had some 8x8's that had been on her shelf "forever", she says. This one was opened and had a few smudges and was kinda dusty. It cleaned up real well, though - don't you think? I added the ribbon and you can see just a few pages. This album was kept simple and I left the journaling for the birthday girl.
