Chatelaine Mystery X

An update, finally! Its coming although I hate to admit this is still February's section I'm working. Whew, talk about labour intensive and I'm not even adding any of the beads. Tempting though that might be, as you can see from the number of gaps, there are a lot of beads to be added and I'm starting to rethink having to add all these at the end.

I'm still working...slowly too...at my PIF gifts. I'm hoping this weekend to start working on some of the finishing of these projects so I can finally get a couple in the mail.

I went to a local scrapbook shop last night with Carrie and Kristy and totally fell in love with a new paper pack from DCWV called Once Upon a Time. Its absolutely gorgeous and of course it just had to come home with me! I have no idea yet what I'm going to do with it, I'm tempted to just put it in an album on its own and just admire the beautiful papers. But I might try to get a little more creative and as it says on the cover sheet, create my own fairy tale.

If anyone ever thought they might like to try their hand at scrapbooking, this is the paper for you! Its so pretty that you don't even have to add anything other than the pictures themselves, and not too many, because you don't want to cover up too much of the paper.

Your Mystery X is beautiful! I can't seem to get my head around scrapbooking, someone gave me a PILE of stuff when my first son was born, probably thinking I would do a scrapbook for him. One of my friends helped me do about three pages, and there it sits, four years later! But I agree, beautiful paper and will look lovely in whatever you decide to create with it.

Mystery X looks great! If I had a craft room I would totally scrapbook.

Barb said...

That is going to be pretty. It's coming along nice.

The mystery looks fabulous :) I think I would stitch on the beads as I go as I am not a fan of beading - love the look but it's so tedious to stitch all those little beggars on!

I did ONE page ...once...and it didn't sing to me, so no more scrpabooking for me :)
