nyc memory book ... thanks to Michaels Stores

Tuesday, June 1, 2010

I have finally finished my three nyc memory books ... I made three copies - one for my dear friend Karen, who received hers the other weekend, one for me and one to send to Michaels  head office to thank them for sending me to New York to see the Martha Stewart Show.

I created all of the pages digitally with a combination of my pictures, nyc maps, vintage papers & postcards, and other digital elements that I created or bought on line ...

I left space on the back of each page so that Karen and I could each write our own handwritten notes about the trip ... I used BasicGrey chipboard books as the base ...

I tied a bunch of ribbons to the binder ring and added a little jewellery chain that I made ... I added a piece of the nyc subway map to one piece ...

I'm ready to send this off in the mail tomorrow. Thanks again Michaels ... we had a wonderful time!!!


  1. Oh wow, that is super nice!

  2. Hello there and thank you for your lovely comment on my site. My daughter has a VP shunt and it was wrongly set when she had it replaced 3 years ago. No-one listens. Docs don't know what you go through!
    I'm loving your scrapbooks...a great passion of mine and I haven't done any for a while. You have inspired me!
    Thanks, and keep well yourself. Are you fully recovered?

  3. Yes ... I'm fine now. Had another MRI a couple of weeks ago for follow up. I have regained all of my motor skills. I continue to work with a personal trainer and go to the gym 3-4 days a week to get my strength and endurance back. Still seeing specialists to try to figure out how this happened and to make sure that it doesn't happen again.

  4. Your scrapbooks turned out adorable. I really need to spend some time scrapbooking. I'm constantly be distracted by other crafts, so its been forever since I've made a page or scrapbook. I can only imagine how much fun it must have been to go to NYC to see the Martha Stewart show =)
