Thank you to you and you and you!!

Hello! Thank you so much to all of you that pop in here to check things out so often! I have been feeling so bad about not making posts lately and when I stopped by to make a new post this morning I got all warm and fuzzy feeling on the inside to see that I have had so many faithful visitors! You guys are the very best!!! : )

My life has been a total whirlwind lately! Hubby and I run soccer for our county and this year right about the time we decided we were going to go for it one more year he found out he was going to have to start traveling for work. Ugh!!! He has been in and out and gone for most of the entire season so far (weeks!). We already had a small soccer board and one of our other key people had to step down this year as well, so that basically leaves me and one other member of the board to run the show! 320 kids, 29 teams, 59 coaches, 84 games and 5 referee's and off we go! It has been stealing most of my time lately, but it is a short season and since we have decided this will be our last time in charge I am trying to make it a good one! : )

Anyhow...I have a few things to share with you today!

I had 2 swaps due this past weekend and although it took being awake into the very wee hours of the night to get them completed, I made the deadline! : ) The first one was a new In Color swap. The project could be anything as long as it used the new In Colors from Stampin Up!
I used three of the six new colors and made this tiny little book! I am such a sucker for mini albums so this was super fun to make! I used an envelope to make the base of the album and added card stock to the front, back and middle after sealing and folding it in half. I adhered one layer of card stock on the inside and then folded a second piece and ran the 'spine' of that piece through a bead of glue and bound the book that way. I used Dreams du Jour from SU! for the stamped images and added a butterfly to the top corner for eye candy! I only glued down his center so I could lift the wings and make him look 'in flight'! That butterfly is soooo pretty! I love winged things!

I will be back in a little bit to share the other swap project and more! : )

Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette and Very Vanilla
