55 New Things
There was a challenge or idea going around last year about documenting the new things that one encountered or did in a year from one birthday to the next. The idea was to list the number of new things represented by the birthday at the start of that year. As I turned 55 in 2008 I decided to collect these 55 new things and document them in a mini-album. I used the new Kit of the Month from Creating Keepsakes as when I saw it I knew it would make a perfect start to creating the album. I added the front and back covers (Teresa Collins) and many items from my "stash" that I had purchased and never used or used less than I should. There are a lot of Tim Holtz and Heidi Swapp embellishments and lots of alcohol inks and crackle paints from Ranger as well as Glimmer Mist and Glimmer Glass from Tattered Angels and probably other stuff too. I'm going to try to get these in order front to back! The actual list of "new things" was cut into strips and placed in the various envelopes throughout the book. Since I took the pictures I also added ribbon to the rings.
