When I saw the design team call for Jinger Adams and The Scrapbooking Queen, my heart skipped a beat. I immediately starting brainstorming...what 1 project could I create that might show my passion for paper crafting, highlight my artistic versatility and say something about me? I realized that I haven't really made anything just for myself, or about myself--in a long while. I decided that this design team call was the perfect opportunity to do so! I wanted to incorporate scrapbooking, stamping and a few of my favorite techniques into my All About Me in 2012 acrylic album, my journaling will come along as I move through the year. I hope you enjoy looking at my album as much as I have enjoyed creating it!

I learned a super fabby technique from the ultra talented Ali Edwards using alcohol inks and, just like her, it totally rocks! Sharing is caring! :)
Another is that it allows me to add extras goodies in-between the larger acrylic pages. I like to add tags for journaling, pockets to hold small mementos and inspiring sentiments that say something about who I am and who I strive to be. (I used Clear Scraps 8x8 clear acrylic tab album)
My life would not be complete without my furry angel and the closest thing I have to a "child" hehe. My precious sweetheart, Maddie. She brings such joy to my days and is a true blessing. I love you Maddie!
Make journaling cubbies--so much fun to decorate with fabric, ribbons, lace, bling, flowers, charms, rub-ons, stickers, etc--add texture with your Cuttlebug...and please don't forget to stamp, even right onto your photo like I did below, coolness! (I used Cherish This Moment from MCT, and various stamps from Unity for my album)

Stamp on Acrylic technique: use Staz On ink pads by Tsukineko and your favorite images to stamp directly onto acrylic, plastic, metal, cellophane, glass and more! It's so easy and looks awesome! (I used Black and Pumpkin)
