A new scrapbook started, first new pages

I started a new scrapbook last weekend and finally got some photos. I'll be working on more this weekend, and using the cook stuff pages Winston sent me!

Here's the first page. I found these cute crowns.


Here's the king of the castle.


Of course, the queen.

The little prince and princess.


And the queen mother.


This is the second page. I love the stickers.
Maks: "Do I know you?"
Kiska: "Help."
Czarina: "Snap that picture and your dead meat."
Oksana: "I'm trying to look like I'm having fun."
Vlad: "Huh?"

Love the crowns! Every royal kitty needs a crown to complete his or her wardrobe!

So do you have enough free book-shelves to accommodate all your future scrapbooks? madame hazel's crystal ball sees a lot of them in your future! It would be a shame not to have them on display!

Wonderful new pages! It was so nice of Winston to send you the scrapbooking stuff. I'm sure you will put it to lots of good use. Love the little crowns.
And Czari - Queen Mother! That is so funny!!!

Hazel, I've got no bookshelf space, but, I've got lots of free wall space! I like buying nice books because I figure, I can always put them on a wall shelf and display them.

14+, yes Winston sent me some lovely things, much like you did. I'm looking forward to sitting down and working on more pages.

I figure, since she does seem to go around trying to put everyone in their place, she's certainly the mother figure around here.

A few more pages. I incorporated some of the stuff Winston sent me.

Here's Maks and Vlad.


Vlad, the party animal.


LOL, Maks does have his wild days.

Here are the best buds.


Now on to Kiska. Winston had sent me a package that was for baby boys and one for baby girls. I changed a few things, so as not to show a whole lot baby type stuff, but I really liked the layout of the page. I think it came out nice.

This is from the first or second day I had my Tiny Miss.


I love this shot of her. I have one of her in the same spot, same post but a year later. You can really see how much she'd grown, but not much. LOL


Here I had to block out the "baby girl" with the hearts. And i also added the giraffe, leafe and butterflies to cover the baby stuff, but I thought the bunny was really cute.


That's it for today. It took me a while to do these two, since I had so many assistants.

I'm looking for some storage. I'm accumulating more and more stuff and need a place to better organize it all.

Cool pages, cute pics. I like the paper. I have to get some more paper before i do more pages.
Scrapbooking is so addictive.

I love and hate looking at old photos. I love seeing how adorable they were as kittens, but its sad knowing how fast they are growing.

Nice work AG! Glad to see you enjoying it! I like to do that and I also cross stitch. Have you ever tried that? I am working on a really tough picture at the moment...cross stitching is very time consuming though..I did a very large ppicture of a house and garden and it took me 6 yrs to finish the darn thing! beautiful in the end though!

Love to see the baby pics of the gang!

Winston, I've never cross stitched, but it's something that I might like to do at some point. 14+ sent me a box of stuff, which included some stuff to stitch on plastic board. I've been focusing on the scrapbooking for now though, since I'm really enjoying it so much. I'd like to maybe find a class or something on knitting at some point too.

How big was the project you did that took you 6 years?

Wow, that's beautiful! It looks like a painting. I love the water area. You did a marvelous job!

I avoid going to the library. I lost some books a few years ago, after a move and they want to charge me like $30 for them!

Its not the typical cross stitch though. You can get two kinds...this one has a pre printed pattern on it and the other way is just plain aida cloth with the squares in it and you do the whole picture...

I love going to the library...I can get movies, books, and for you maybe youll hook up with someone there! maybe they will let youpay the fine off slowly!

The last time I checked was a couple of years ago. Maybe the statute of limitations is over. Seriously, I felt bad I lost the books, but charging me 3 times what they were worth is a little crazy.

A few more new pages.

I don't have a table to work on, so I decided to use the sofa table I keep against the dining room wall, and actually put it behind the sofa. It worked out quite well. I made a couple of pages this past weekend.

Here is an Oksana page.

AG, I know $30 sounds like a lot but do the math. Each paper back pook costs approximately $10. if you had 3 paperbacks, that is $30 dollars right there. Plus, the supplies and time it takes to add and remove each book from the library catalogue. If the books were hardcover, well, a single hardcover can run anywhere from $25 to $40 dollars for fiction.
Yes, I'm a bookworm, I inherited it.

LOL, true, but when the books are worn, used and several years out of date the value does go down. Heck, if I buy a book new for $10 then try to sell it even a year or two later, the value goes down.
