Some weekend work

I didn't get much done (because I decorated my house for Christmas!) but here are a couple projects:

I made more birdhouses to bring to a little party. Everyone's going to bring something little homemade, so I thought they'd be good. I bought this:

at the Dollar Store. It's a cinnamon broom, so I broke off pieces and put inside the birdhouses. They smell wonderful now! I'm going to add a cinnamon stick to each one too.

And another wedding layout

Wow, now I don't want to post my birdhouses. Yours are AWESOME. (I just used scrap paper on mine as a passive aggressive statement to the fact that I'm constantly volunteered to make things and never asked.) I do love the cinnamon idea though, may have to steal it.

LOVE the latest wedding page too. I think it's the lace and flowers that really make the page for me.

Wow Charys. That LO is just breathtaking. What a beautiful couple they are. And I love his casual dress. When are you giving them this book? I am dying to hear her reaction. Smile Does she scrapbook?

I'm giving it to them for Christmas. The man who walked her down the aisle in this picture is a really special figure in her life. (not our real dad) I'll let you know how they like it. I hope to give it to them about 2 weeks before Christmas, so I've got to get busy. She doesn't scrapbook at all, so I hope she likes it. Smile

Silly you!! Of course we want to see them! You're the one who gave me the idea of using my crinkle thing for the roofs.

Your birdhouses look great and I love the idea of the cinamon. Bet it smells wonderful.

The bride page is beautiful. I love your use of the butterfly. You've used those a few times recently and I really love them, it adds a nice touch. Great page.

Charys I love the lo and the birdhouses! I wonder if my dollar store sells a broom like that. I am sure your sister will LOVE all the work you have done. How many pages do you have now?
