When I checked my blog last week, I found out all my pictures had disappeared. I am working on tracking down which memory card has them. I am so bad about moving them off the cards and onto my computer. Hopefully I will have them reposted in a few days.

Well, I did the huge mini for my Mom, but felt like I was leaving my Dad out. While surfing the net, I found the perfect mini for my Dad. I think he will get a kick out of it. I found an outhouse mini tutorial. You can check it out here http://myscrapmenagerie.blogspot.com/2012/09/outhouse-mini-tutorial-is-here.html. I can't wait to start on this one. Hopefully when I get home this evening.

Well, I finally found a brand new Big Shot I was willing to order. I love getting a great deal and can usually only afford new machines when I find a great steal. I found a Big Shot on Amazon.com for just a few pennies under $45.00. Yes, that does include shipping and taxes. Okay, so it has the free super saver shipping. That takes a few days longer, but it's free. According to the website, I should have it by the first of September. Woo Hoo! My old Big Shot still works, just not like it used to and the squeaking is very annoying. Maybe I can take it back apart and work on it again after I get my new one. It never hurts to have a spare.
I am so a craft supply hoarder. I need to do a destash on my facebook page.

So I have been working on the embellishments for the family album for my mom. I have quite a few added to the base pages I posted not long ago. Tim Holtz was definitely the way to go. Thanks to everyone from the Frugal Scrapper Yahoo Group for the suggestions. I used Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and some Stampers Best Stamps as well as some Tim Holtz stamps. The Sizzix dies awesome. I love them. I am very happy with the way this is coming together. I made rosettes with my Martha Stewart score board and topped them with buttons for the sister pages and Tim Holtz gears for the brother pages. I still need to add the names and come up with some pictures. Lots left to do to finish this. I will post the full album when I finish it. Until then enjoy pictures of the embellishments.

My Big Shot is still not "right". I got the new crankshaft and installed it, but the slipping and squeaking is still happening. Makes me so sad. I guess I will continue to use it until it is totally dead and then maybe get a new one. My husband has been asking what I want for my birthday next week. I might get him to get me another one.
