Jacquie did her book about her mother. The picture on the front is actually an altered picture of her mom.
Eileen did her victory dance and Jacquie got DJ to shake that thing! (and if you know how quiet and sweet DJ is you understand how awesome this is!)
As they always do, Bill and Donna treated everyone to a limousine ride and a nice dinner. These dinners are always a lot of fun and this one did not disappoint!
The paint all over my hands matched my nail polish!!!

I know both these wonderful ladies from home!
Way too soon it was over!!!
DISLIKE: In hindsight I woud have used much thicker fabric on the spine. The fabric is beautiful but way too thin and the spine is really really flimsy.
SOLUTION: Take it apart and put it back together with a stronger spine.
LIKE: I like the colors and the bird
DISLIKE: I hate the way the writing with acrylic paint came out (especially since I screwed up the T).
Right side page of the layout above is part of the FABRIC WRAP. The fabric wrap is exactly what it sounds like. You sew pieces of fabric together and embellish and then use it to "wrap" your signatures. LOVE IT.
LIKE: A thick yummy book with many many pages.
DISLIKE: TOO MANY pages!
SOLUTION: Since I have to take it apart to do the spine again, I will probably divide this into two journals (since I did double what DJ suggested!).
