Make it Marvelous in May!

Greetings Crafty People,

WARNING:  Long Post...

May is such a wonderful month, especially for crafting!  National Scrapbook Day was May 5th; Mother's Day was on May 14th; and Memorial Day is right around the corner.  May also marks the end of the school year, and the beginning of Summer break, for many students.   This month, I attended my first scrap house retreat - and it was wonderful!!  I am already looking forward to the next one!!  LOL.

While on this retreat, I had the daunting task of completing my very first Kathy (Orta) King project - The Everyday Life 8x8 album.  I made this album for my mom to showcase the pictures from her 80th birthday celebration last November.  My intentions were to have it done by last Christmas; but reality set in, and I targeted Mother's Day 2017 as the delivery date.  Now, anyone who has visited this blog knows that I tend to be a slow and steady crafter - and deadlines tend to drive me into a crafting frenzy!  LOL.  Nonetheless, I pulled it off (for the most part)!  Yay me!!  I had my sista' Cassie cheering and pushing me along.  The end result...

I was able to present the album to my mom on Mother's Day; and although I still have a few minor embellishments to add, she loved it!!  I'm so excited to have completed my first KK project!!  I used a couple of designer paper stacks to complete this project - Paper Studio "Black Tie Optional" and "So Glam".

Thanks for visiting and leaving a little love!
