Don't forget about Project #3, based on our memories of 9-11!
Saturday, August 29, 2009
9-11 has been on my mind a lot these past few days as we draw closer to the anniversary of that event. I'm sure most of us will never forget where we were that day. I was at work and remember the shock of my co-workers as news began to come into the warehouse. I remember just praying constantly as I went about that day. At break time everyone hovered around radios to get the latest news. No one said much. There were many tears and those of us who trust in the Lord did our best to encourage those around us who didn't have that hope.
For this month's project, use 9-11 as your starting point. Create a scrapbook page or other project to show where you were, your thoughts, feelings, anything that sticks out in your mind about 9-11. This project is pretty open ended. Maybe you'll decide to show your love for your country and your God, or perhaps a particular song touched you about that day. Or you might decide to depict the events as you remember them. Whatever you decide, please remember to use at least 50% Close to My Heart products in your project.
Mine is still a work in progress. When it is finished I will post it so you have an example to go by. You have until September 30 to e-mail me a picture of your completed project.

When you recieve your Acrylic Album, remove the protective film from the front and back of each page. I did this as I went.
Starting with the back page, I cut a 6x6 square peice of B&T and a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 photo. For each of the other pages, my B&T and photo get 1/2 inch smaller each time. So the 2nd to last page is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 B&T and 5x5 photo, with the front page (under the cover) being 4x4 B&T and 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 photo.
I distressed the edges of my B&T papers and my photos with Cholcolate DistressingInk. I used the black and white rub-ons from each of the packs, and the quotes I found by searching online.
To attach the paper and photos I used Liquid Glass. Run a bead of Liquid Glass around the edge of paper, smooth out with your finger and attach to the top side of page. Do the same with photo, attaching to the top of the B&T. Add rub-ons as desired and you have a very cute mini Acrylic Album to give as a gift or keep for yourself!
