2005 Scrapbook

Yesterday was the best day for scrapbooking I have had in years! I started working on a scrapbook for 2005 well over a year ago now and a lot of the pages were missing some stamped accents and there was no journaling what-so-ever! So I set to work making sure all the pictures I wanted were there and the events I wanted to remember the most were going to be all in order. I find the hardest job is gathering all the photos and extras like football tickets into one spot.
The above photo is to show you the ribbon detail. First put down the sticky strip onto the page, then use one very long piece of Basic Grey satin ribbon and start from the left side. At one side start folding the ribbon and sticking on edge onto the sticky strip. Keep going until you have enough pleats. The layers will bounce up a bit so to keep them all flat I went back with a pair of tweezers and glue dots to stick each pleat down.

After yesterdays scrapbooking I now have 32 complete pages and I am searching for photos for another 2 that I need to squeeze in - but that will require a trip to visit my mom and her photos!

These are some great pages, I keep telling myself I'm going to start scrapbooking but so far - not.

Thanks for sharing,
