I have said it before, but I will say it again- I love Scrapbooks Etc, their classes and their products BUT it is SOOOO far. It takes up our entire evening, its a lot of stress, gas and money to go out there for class.
That being said this month when we got the advertisement for the upcoming book class and Jackie asked if we wanted to go... I said why don't I just design something and we can work on it at my house? She and my mom thought it was a great idea, because they feel the same way about driving all over town. SO this is what I came up with - It actually had 3 rings I just didn't put them in for the pictures.
It was probably the best craft night ever. Jackie brought her award winning chili and delicious cornbread to share with us. My mom had the boys with her so Brian and Kenny could go to Bible Study (this week they went for dinner and then to see the movie Courageous), so we got to have them around while we made our books. Jacob even sat at the table with us and made a book of his own. We enjoyed the comfort of my home with the doors open and the fresh, cool (60 degree) air blowing in. It was just awesome. Sure my book is simpler than something we would have made in class, but it also only cost us $15 each instead of $25 and I had a lot of fun putting these together.
