TGiF, Stampers! Please say hello to the cover of my 'True Love' paper bag album.
Today's altered art project was created for sale on eBay, but the project qualifies for the Pal's Paper Arts "Anything But a Card" challenge, PPA26. For all the challenging deets, including a look at the Pals' a-mazing samples, clicky HERE. As always, for the ginormous view of my photos, clicky right THERE on the photo.
This vintage-inspired Valentine's Day-themed paper bag album is jam-packed with authentic vintage ephemera ... I don't do copies. In this particular album, most of the ephemera dates back to 1925. Over the past 7 years or so, my albums have been purchased by Doctor's, Lawyers, and Indian Chiefs. I estimate that I have over 150 of these vintage-inspired albums scattered all over the world. Which is kinda cool to know ...
Okay, enough with the ancient history:
This ^ spread is pages 2 and 3 of the album;
This ^ spread is pages 4 and 5;
This ^ spread is pages 6 and 7;
This ^ spread is pages 8 and 9; and,
This ^ spread is pages 10 and 11.
If you're so inclined, you can see several more detailed photos of this album by visiting my eBay store. To see all the pretty pictures, clicky HERE and be whisked away on an exciting journey of discovery!
My friend Karen is one fun chickadee with a great sense of humor, and I hope she doesn't mind, but I'm gonna share with you the entire contents of an email she sent me today:
"Deb, Thought for the Day:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says, 'W T F.'"
OMG, it's been right under our noses the whole time!
Soooooooo, Reid-the-Wild-Child called me after school yesterday 'cuz he was thrilled to see his jokes on the Web. Here's what he said:
"Aunty, since you were so nice to help me get famous and have my own TV show, I'm gonna give you one last joke for free."
"What? Whaddya mean ... you think I'm gonna pay you to put your jokes on my blog?!?"
"Do you want the free joke or not?"
"Sure, why not ... as long as you promise that it's the last free joke." I answered.
"Yeah, it is. Okay ... so, a turtle goes to New York City and he's lost and he's in a really bad neighborhood. And then he gets mugged by a gang of snails."
"The cops asked him what happened, and he said, "I really don't know, it all happened so fast!"
Thanks so much for stopping by ... I hope your weekend is fantastical!
