Sacrifice the Camera, but Grab the Paper!!! - Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

Well. You know you're a scrapbooker when.........
you spill your Cherry Diet Dr. Pepper (at your own Open House) at the make 'n take table, and instead of grabbing your camera, you grab the paper! Goodness gracious. Yes, I did it again. I am a major klutzoid. I should know better than to have an open cup near my paper. Aimee had to stamp her card all over again. Terri and Susan ran for paper towels and scooped everything up.

Luckily, I had placed supplies at two different tables, so half of the paper was saved. The jury is still out on my camera. I'm waiting for it to dry out. Will I ever learn? Probably not ;-)

I have the most wonderful scrapbookin' friends. My feet tell me that my Open House is finished and tonight is reserved for bloggin', couch potatoin' and watchin' "You've Got Mail". I've probably watched it over a dozen times, but it is on tv tonight, so I must watch it. It's nice background buzz while I'm blogging.

Here are photos of a little album I made for my August class. It was the most popular class, judging from the number of people who signed up. This is not my typical style. I like more vintage, muted colors. If I do go for a bright color, it's usually not a primary color. But I have to tell you, there's something to be said for thinking outside the proverbial box (every time my boss mention thinking outside the box, I want to choke him. Good Lord). I think this turned out rather cute, and I used a lot of new CTMH items. I tried to post every page, but it has taken me two hours to post these photos, so this is it. My favorite page is the most simple - the back cover with the cute little giraffe. I hope you like it too!

I think I probably would have grabbed for the paper, too, though I'd be kicking myself if I ruined my camera. With the exception of the Dr. Pepper disaster, it sounds like you had a good day. Your little 10 Things album is SO cute. If I were in the neighborhood, I'd definitely sign up for your class! What fun it would be!

Deb, sorry to hear about your spill. Hope you recovered from it with all paper and supplies in tact. The little notebook is cute. You did a great job on it. How was the open house? Did you have many sales or bookings from it?
