My "Words to Live By" Album


As promised, here are the photos of my "Words to Live By" album, a class I took (for free!) over at Big Picture Classes.  The paper I used is a retired Close to my Heart pack titled "Notebook."  (LOVE that set!)  I was trying to be good and use up supplies I had on hand and not purchase anything extra.  (Believe me, I could do that for a L-O-N-G time, and still have a passel of stuff!  Did I mention I'm a collector?)   The letter stickers were various ones I had on had, as were the embellishments.  The album was an old 6x6 chipboard album by Rusty Pickle that I found in my stash.  If there is anything I see as I post pictures that I can identify, I'll do so after the photo!   (My apologies -- a few of these turned out a little blurry.)  Feel free to click on any image to see larger and in more detail.

Uffda!  Are you completely bored?  Thanks for sticking with me through the whole album!!  I had so much fun making this, and fun learning a little bit about myself.  Some of the words were easy to journal about, some were hard.  All in all, it was a great class.  Check out Big Picture Classes for yourself!  :)
