my "collage" book...

I put together my picture collages last night...








I kept it SUPER simple...with all of the photos I felt like it really didn't need much at all. To assemble the pieces I just sandwiched a strip of ribbon between 2 of the picture collages and then it's folded accordian style. The only thing I would have done differently is use a wider ribbon...but, oh, well. It's done! Then I just added some journaling about some of the things I want to remember about 2007. Like I said...super simple!


And then I thought I'd share these cute jars...



In my kitchen I've collected retro stuff over the last 5 years. I love enamelware and jars and stuff like that. Anyways, I got these stickers at my LSS last week. (I think they are made by Melissa Frances) and I just added them to these 2 jars. And easy way to decorate! My sister gave me this idea...thanks, Karly!



And here's a view of my kitchen today...




Okay, Gabbs is waking up (why does nap time go by so quickly???).



Have a good day!!



T:)



(Oh, and there's a new challenge up at the Goodie Box...head on over if you want to "challenge" yourself!)

Love the album! So simple and yet so full of good stuff.

Also - beautiful kitchen. I love simple clean lines. The white with red touches go great together.

Thanks for sharing and I hope your week is off to a great start.
