It has been a very long time since I have blogged ... but wanted to share this.  I think I have found a most excellent white pen ... it is a little on the thick side .... but I can live with that. What do you use ?????  This is a uni-ball Signo // broad.  Maybe it does come with a thinner nib.

It's Finally Done
My nephew and his wife were married 3 years ago in August and I am finally finished with their album.  In the meantime they are also the proud parents of twin boys.
Here are a few of my favorite pages from the album.


These two pages were lots of fun to do.
I placed my picture(s) in the desired places and then I just painted frames around the picture.  I used acrylic paint and after the paint dried I did some doodling with a black permanent pen and I rubbed in some different colors here and there using Staz On Ink Pads.



The next two pages are pics of peeps dancing.
I love the lyrics of a song that I used.




This is a favorite picture of mine.  
Ian is crying, but I do not know why !!!
I just get a kick out of crying babies !!!


I could not resist doing a whole page of my girls.
I did some hand stitching around the edge of the circle.
Everything else was layering.  I used a plate as a 
template to cut out my circle.




And here are Ricky And Nicole 
Mommy and Daddy to be.

I do have a few blank pages at the end of the album.
I am thinking I will do some layouts of the twins.

Now that this is done, onto Manny and Nara's album.  
I hope I can get it sooner than 3 years.  
I have made an album for all my nieces and nephews that have gotten married.  I wonder if I ever will have to make albums for my girls ???????
