Sunday Quickie... um?!

So I have a ton more projects to share and not a lot of time today so i'm going to try to make this quick... hence the title.  So for my last post I realized as I was going to link up the DCWV projects that I didn't follow all the rules for the challenge so I re-did them both. :) believe me it wasn't a problem since I love to have the pages ready for my scrapbook & I need more birthday cards.  So I bought a scrapbook from Walmart for $5.00 and I really like the color and embossing on the cover:

I put all the 12x12 layouts I've made since August in here (so all the ones I've made for the past year).  I usually only have online "photo albums" cause printing pictures seems like a lot on a student budget.  But I've been getting 100 free photos from shutterfly every once in a while and shipping and handling is a lot less then actually buying all those pictures.  Also, I know what they'll look like before I get them etc.  Anyway...

Here is a quick photo tutorial for pumpkin decorations I make every year.

  1. Get a new roll of toilet paper
  2. wrap it in a square of fabric.  This will be your pumpkin so choose a color you like.
  3. Using 4 strips of contrasting fabrics stuff the middles into the top of the pumpkin.
  4. Then push in a cinnamon stick and add some cute raffia to make the stem and vines.  
Hope that makes sense to someone out there... & sorry for the horrible lighting in these pictures... I was in a hurry and in a small area with one small window.
