thanks!

Thanks for all the comments on my table! I appreciate it. Just for the record, my carpet is tan and has plenty of spots and my house is not always perfect! I just know how to tidy up for a picture. LOL! To answer Christina's question, yes the top can be raised and lowered. I had Mike adjust it to the chair I'm using so it is at it's lowest.

Here's a peek at the gift albums I made for my in-laws for Christmas. I bought cheapy plastic photo albums at Walmart for $1.96 each. They held 36 pics. That gave me enough room to put two pics from each month of 2005. I included a Table of Contents at the beginning to explain where each pic was taken. I had extra space so I put four dividers in to represent the seasons. I did the section pages out of American Crafts paper. It was perfect since it had the season already printed on it. For the cover, I used the scraps and punched circles in various sizes. I'm happy with how they came out. I will probably do these every year since it's a great way to share pics. The family seemed to love them. Here's a look at the section pages....

See ya tomorrow!

Leave the hurt behind you, love has found you now and He'll never let you go - oh you've got to know that Jesus will not leave us now - so leave your cares behind, oh leave your cares behind (song lyrics by Amy Grant)

Those albums are really cute Tracie. I need to do something like that for the grandparents for Christmas next year. I think they would like that more than a new shirt of a gift certificate!

very cute books. what type of printer do you have b/c I have yet to figure out how to print white ink well. it never works and i'm convinced it's my epson stylus color 980 that i got way before i was ever into scrapping.
i've already been thinking about next year's Christmas gifts so i can start them NOW!!!!

love your new scrap table and space, very you! had fun today at scrap it, wished you would have stayed longer, did you find anything good after you left? i won't say it wasn't any fun without you, but it could have been a lot more fun if you had stayed.... and -ahem- in my best beegee's voice....

Christina - The white words were already printed on the American Crafts paper! I do have a Canon i960 printer that I love though!

Sherri - I actually got a rockin' new dress at Marshalls for church. Tiff helped me pick it out!
