The Greeting Farm Fresh Challenge - 3 Stamps Challenge

Happy Friday Friends! Before I begin. . .I have to vent! Today I slaved away for 4 hours making a 20 page mini album. My daughter's friend had requested that I make a mini album to give to her father for Father's Day. I had procrastinated and had completely forgotten to make it and she called yesterday to see if it was done. . . ummmm, no! So. . .I had to work on it today. . I didn't eat lunch or anything. Creating a mini album for me is a monumental task and it actually turned out beautiful. LOL! If I can finish a mini album. . .it's beautiful even if it turned out crappy! Well, when I was done. . .I was soooo proud of it.

Anyway. . .my daughter's friend called to say she was coming down to pick the album up and she was about 5 minutes away. Thankfully, I completed it. I gave it to her and she LOVED it and was grateful that I created it. I was happy that she liked it. When she left. . .I realized. . . .OMG!!!! I didn't take a picture of the mini album. Not taking a picture of it is, in my eyes, CRIMINAL! I worked so hard making it and it's like I never made it because I don't have a picture of it. It's forever gone. I know. . .I'm silly but. . .bummers. I can't show you my mini album. It's not like I make many of them so every one that I make really counts.

Okay. . .enough venting

Guess what! The Greeting Farm is having another challenge. Yup! Whoohoo! Stop by the Greeting Farm blog and check out the samples created by the DT.

Three stamp sets. . .wow. . .that's an awesome prize. I wish I could play! LOL! Well, you can. . .isn't it worth it to play along to possibly win 3 stamp sets? The Greeting Farm has such awesome prizes for their challenges. You will need to use the Greeting Farm stamps for this challenge.

Rita said...

This is so beautiful!

I know how you feel when you forget to take a picture of something you made, it's like a part of you is missing. That's why I have to take a picture of every page of a scrapbook album that I made & gave to my kids or their friends.
