My first little project.

I went looking for a scrapbook. I have never done scrapbooking and I wanted to start making something cute for the gang. There's an arts & crafts place near me and I wanted to see if they had some nice inexpensive scrapbooks.

I saw a really nice one, lime green and it was $11.99. I walked around for a while and then I came upon another area that had some Disney and Barbie stuff. I found a Barbie scrapbook for $6.99. Ack! I loved it! But, I had to adapt it for not just the girls but the boys.

So, here is what it looked like before I started.



And this is whats it looks like now.



I took a black and white sheet from the foam 14+ sent me and I covered the barbie sillouettes. Then I added these pre-made little foam kitties! I had to put the big pink one together, but I think the glue I used isn't right for this. I have to wait to see if the foam is still slipping and sliding. when I bought it it said it's good for any surface, but I may have to start all over.

I still have to do a strip to cover the back, but I think so far I'm very pleased.

Funny! I see the box I sent the stuff down to you holding your new scrapbook!! Even part of my addy.
I love what you've done to make the scrapbook personal for the kitties! Great start!! The fun foam is actually very easy to work with and make neat things. Great!! Keep on going now!!!

Oh no As you can see, the box is serving as my craft table.

The foam is great. I found my X-acto knife and it was really helpful with scoring the foam so I can get a good cut. I found some pictures I can use as a start, so hopefully the cover will be properly dried and I can put the plastic cover on and start working on some pages.

I'm going to have to look at some better glue. Something with more precision and that dries faster.

Thanks! It was so inexpensive, I had to make it work. I knew I'd be able to use some of the foam to alter it a bit. Those little kitty cut outs did the job nicely too. I have to do the back tomorrow, and start on a page or two.

I'm a righty. The cat seemed to work better at that angle.

It turned out very nice but it was alot of work. Overall, the album is pleasing to look at.
