It looks much less green in person.
Then all I needed was an album & some baseball card style page protectors. These are We R Memory Keepers brand:
My album is actually black leather, but same style as this one.
It's been a really long time since I've scrapbooked in 8.5x11 size...like, since high school. I went through a 12x12 phrase through most of college, and now, I stick to 8x8, when I actually create something. I went with 8.5x11 because most of my paper is that size. I didn't want to buy a bunch of 12x12 cardstock just for one project. So, I'll adjust.
I also found these really awesome stickers from 7 gypsies, which coordinate perfectly with my theme and also happen to have some phrases on them that I think will be perfect on my pages:
Cute right? What I don't use, I'll use on some other project because these stickers are adorable.
So, after coupons and some stuff on sale, my grand total was something like $22. Awesome, right? I know I've spent money on the supplies I already had, and I will spend money to have the pictures printed, but all told, that's an awesome total for a scrapbook project.
I warned Mike this morning that I'd be starting this project first thing tomorrow. I'm going to take my camera to bed with me even :) He whined, of course, because that's what he does, but I'm getting really excited to start photographing. First up on the agenda: farmer's market (my first of the season!) and then a trip to Wal-mart. I'm sure that'll make for some fun stories :)
I'll post pictures each day (hopefully!) at the end of the day or the next morning so you all can sort of see the process.
Happy Friday, y'all!
