My dad phoned and needed groceries. When I brought him his groceries he was in pain. He broke his hip a little over a month ago, but that isn't the problem. He has severe rheumatoid arthritis. He is in pain every day but today I could tell was worse then average. So I stayed and made him dinner, cleaned up his apartment, and tried to make him comfy and make sure every thing was in reach so he could just relax. I hate to see him like this.
When I got home I worked on my paper bag mini album. I don't know who it is going to yet. But it is fun making it. Here are a few pictures. It is far from finished. I just started to add embelishments. I came to the realization that I shouldn't buy premade embelishments as I never use them, I make my own. I have to appoligize for the photo quality as my internet was down and I didn't have time to retake any pics.
I also figured out that I should have stamped before adding the paper to the bag. Less bumpy. I think that the stamping turned out fine though. I stamped the stem of the flower and then stamped on this flower.
I stamped the butterflies, then punched out a Martha Stewart butterfly and attached it to the stamped one. You can't tell by the photo but I only attached the body to the paper, so the wings stick up.
This is the last page. I thought it was the front of the book and stamped the tree upside down. Hubby said "Guess you have to make a new page." I didn't want to so I restamped it on the same paper then backed it with a darker blue. Actually I like it better.
Like they say A mistake is just a reason to be more creative. Well actually no one said this I made it up lol.
