Taa-da!

My first exploding scrapbook, and let me tell you before it was finished I EXPLODED myself! Well perhaps it was my fault for not having a back up of adhesive (now I have a year's supply thanks to Joann's 40% off adhesive sale) but it goes much deeper than not having the glue to put it together. Here is my grand idea. Nicole's birthday is on the 21st of August (yes we are both Leo's as many of my friends are- hear us roar!)but I had this idea to create a mini book with her pageant photos. I am a genious right, not--because I decide to really put it together the week of. I got a little off track (some how I lost a week back there) ANY-way I printed the photos I wanted to put in the book, trying to resize them and ended up with the miniature photo that is on the cover. I can't throw anything away and definatly not photos so I just set it aside thinking of really never using it but also never throwing it away. So I am going to be meeting her on a Thursday evening I have to drive about 35 minutes to pick her up and then about 20 minutes to where we were eating (melting pot). I decide to get home from work and start cranking out an exploding scrapbook since the mini album I bought had a large stain in the back (no wonder it was on clearance). But this is when I decide to try something new. I need to leave my house- with book in hand at 6:15. I worked until 3pm, helped a guy from work move a recliner to his apartment and really started the book at 5:30 and lo' behold the old tombow doesn't have any glue left in her. So I try the ole' subway mayonaise trick (the three taps on the counter gets it out for the sandwich artists right!?) not for the exploding scrapbook artist no siree. So needless to say I went to the dinner empty handed. I finally finished it and that little photo made a perfect little accessory for this little metal frame I found!!! So whataya think!?
