I was surprised to see that Shimelle linked my album up on her blog today. I got a little excited to see my name on her blog. I'm ready to start my learning tomorrow. I have a fresh memory card in the camera. And the batteries are all charge up. I may even use my iPhone for some of the photos.
And the best news is that we are going to start IVF on schedule. I have a cyst on my right ovary that the Dr was worried about. But it's not producing hormones, so after a small prick tomorrow, it shouldn't be any problem.
Here's my album for this year's version of Shimelle's "Learn Something New Everyday" class. I can't believe it's been going on since 2006. I have a few half or mostly complete albums. This year I vow to finish my album.
This year is a little special. Since we should start IVF on the 2nd. This year's class runs a great time for me. Whether or not our journey ends up like we hope, I should have a lot to learn this year.
So I decided to use a homemade album this year. I made covers from canvas. The covers are about 5.5"x7.5". I wrapped chipboard with the canvas and sewed the edges. I added grommets for the book rings.
Supplies: Pattern Paper - Studio Calico; Cardstock- Bazzill; Canvas; foam letter stickers - American Crafts; Square Fabric covered brad - K & Company; Pink Elastic - Paper Salon; Maya Mists
The inside pages were made from Kraft Bazzill. I made pocket pages that are about 5"x7". I wanted a place to write a lot of journaling. I plan on writing a little about what I learn on the outside of the page. But I wanted a place to write more private stuff, if I need it. I can also put extra photos in the pockets.
The inside pages do have some pattern papers on them. I plan of adding embellishments and photos as I go along. I used papers Studio Calico, Sassafras Lass, and Lily Bee. The Studio Calico papers are from the Home Front collection. And the other papers were part of August 09 Studio Calico kit, "Over the Rainbow". So now I'm just waiting on Sept. to roll around.
This is the last page I got done for the challenges at www.shimelle.com. It was a busy weekend that started with me going to CKC Charlotte on Friday. I have all the challenges printed out. I plan on getting more of them done in the coming weeks.

I don't know what took me so long to get an iPhone. The things this thing will do are amazing. Right now, I'm using Glue to post to my very neglected blog. Hopefully being able to post from my iPhone will help me post more.
EDIT: Well, Glue isn't working that great for me. It's posting the titles for the posts, but I'm having to manually add the text for the entry. Now that defeats the purpose of posting from Glue. Maybe they can get that corrects, so I can use it.
