Ok, so after reading a few blogging books and MUCH encouragement I am excited to put up my fist scrapbooking post. One book even said that I'll look back at this post with a strong urge to delete it. I may lack some of my "Livin out loud" personality at first but I'm OK with that, I will learn as I go. When that's not enough...well...see that BADGE on the right...The Casual Blogger conference, Oh YEAH, I'm going!!! I can hardly wait!!
This blog will host my scrapbooking life, sometimes a little about my Real Estate Business or a little of both. I hope you find great inspiration and come back from time to time to see what I've been up to!
When I saw this line "Welcome Home" created by Teresa Collins found here: Welcome Home By Teresa Collins Designs. I knew I HAD to make one of these albums for my clients that saved for a YEAR to buy their dream home. They dreamed, they brought friends and family to the model home and they never took their eyes off their goal of owning this home. They had picked their lot and prayed no one bought it before them. Their dreams came true and during construction I went and took photo's of the progress and made them this "WELCOME HOME" Album.
It's a clipboard that was cut by the carpenter that worked on their home - Pretty special! They can hang it on the wall as the clipboard has a special piece that pulls out for hanging. The back is covered in soft thin cork board to protect their wall or table. For the top I used scrapbook page extenders to hold the address portion. The inside are flip tags with progress noted in the "welcome home" frames - LOVE those! I adhered the tags to the key paper using strips of the paper that says home sweet home - those tags aren't going anywhere, lol! :) I thank you for looking and Congrats again Tom and Carolyn, may you have many happy years to come in your new home! :)
And now for a bit of Huge Exciting news! The Paper Life FEATURED the album on Monday!!!!

So with that said, I highly doubt that I'll look back on this first post and have the urge to delete it someday! Thank you for stopping by! Oh, you are more than welcome to leave comments! :) :) :) ~Cheri
