Here are the two pages that flip UP in the album to expose the BOYS.
I still have to add a teacher poem and I want to add two GIRLS titles to the page of the 6 girls.
I used Cuttin Up for the title, some more stickles and the flower tags are Sizzix (mini tags) - all these items can be found over at www.hallmarkscrapbook.com ...... can you tell I LOVE this place - hehehehehe Jody & Brad are the BEST!!!!
Here is a four page layout I made for the teachers album. The two page layout flips UP to expose 4 pages of just BOYS!!!!! The class consists of 6 girls and 13 boys - YES - 13 BOYS so I decided to just put BOYS all over these pages so she never forgets just how many BOYS were in her class this year.
OK - I hope I remember all the font cartridges I used:
MAKING THE GRADE
I think I got them all :o) I wanted all the fonts to be different.
I also used some stickles for some of the BOYS
Tags are Sizzix
The flip layout pages are True Fit Folios from CTMH - it was the first time I used it and I just love them.
All the cartridges, sizzix and stickles I used on this layout I got over at www.hallmarkscrapbook.com.
Hugs to all,
Another layout for the teachers album :o)
This was "Doughnuts with Dad" day. I make it simple because it has a mini album on the left hand side page.
The title is cut with Mini Monogram and "DAD" is made with the Red Tag Cuttlebug Alphabet in chip board and covered with the same pattern paper - then I used liquid glass. I used stickles on the other letters.
I love to shop over a www.hallmarkscrapbook.com for all my Cricut and scrapbooking supplies - they have the best prices around and very fast shipping!!!!

I have been admiring my friend DeeDee's tile layouts and I finally got the nerve to try it - thanks DeeDee for all your inspirations. To see DeeDee's amazing tiles - check out her blog - it's over on the right hand side.
This week with the BBTB challenge I created a tile layout using the poodle. A friend of mine has a poodle that she adores and so I decided that this would be a perfect little something that she could use.
Paper Pups for the poodle
Alphalicious for the title and for the crown tag
New Arrivals for the girl
You can purchase all these awesome carts over at www.hallmarkscrapbook.com at an amazing price.
Also, make sure to visit the BBTB site for more amazing poodle creations.

I helped out my niece tonight with a school project. She had to make a cook book with all of the latin foods that she and my sister prepared for Dec. 24th (Noche Buena). She loved my clip board layout so much that she wanted something very similar.
Clipboard: Fabulous Finds
Hinge closure and book plate: GRUNGEBOARD (I can't get enough of that stuff)
COOK BOOK: cut from All Mixed Up at 1 1/4"
I attached the back side of the hinge permanently with large brads but the front, I had to find a brad that was not tooooo big nor toooo small......one that was just the perfect size to open and close the book by just pressing the hinge onto the brad. Does that make sense??
For all the amazing products on this project, check out www.hallmarkscrapbook.com - they have the best prices!!!

YAY - I am back to scrapbooking!!!!! The holidays are over and I am now getting back into the swing of things :o)
So - last year I made a year long album of school activities for my DD's teacher - she is extremely special to our family and one of the MOST amazing teachers I know!!!!! Now this school year our DS has the same teacher and you KNOW I have to make her another album - hehehehe
Here is the title page to her album. I will be working on this album until May so watch out for more layouts.
PATTERN PAPER: Chatter box
LINED PAPER: Creative memories
TITLE: Doodletype Cricut Cartridge (found over at www.Hallmarkscrapbook.com) I also added Liquid Glass
CLIPBOARD: Fabulous Finds cartridge (also from Hallmark)
MRS. SHEIL: cut out of chipboard using the Curls and Swirls Cuttlebug alphabet and then covered with a bronze cardstock
ANGEL WINGS: GRUNGEBOARD!!!!! This stuff is AWESOME. It's sort of like leather. I painted it with Acrylic paint.
07 / 08: GRUNGEBOARD!!!!! I inked with green and then I added Liquid Glass
MINI FLOWERS: EK Punch
MISC: Craft button, jute, embellishments (Inspire, Imagine & Hope), rhinestones, pencil
I will also be adding the kids names to this page. I am not sure if I will have each child write his/her name or if I am just going to write it in myself.
