Hostess Monday With Chriss

Good Morning Ladies,
Welcome!  I am so excited to be your hostess today and to show you a project that I made with a Looby Loo design.  First a little about myself.  My name is Chriss and I come from Scrappin' With Chriss and Lou.
I have been married for 35 years to my high school sweetheart and I have two children, Kelly is 31 and Brian is 29.
I want to tell you the story of how I met Wendy (Looby Lou).  I had started blog hopping and I noticed that women would say that their project was a "digi" I did not know what a "digi" was.  I kept leaving comments asking "what is a digi" finally one day I received a very sweet reply back from someone called Looby Lou.  She explained that a "digi" was a "digital stamp" and invited me to her blog.  Little did we know that we had started a friendship that has lasted to this day.  I fell in love with digital stamps, I love that you can store them on your computer and they don't take up any space in your scrapbook room.  I also love that if something happens to your computer, Wendy keeps your stamps safely stored on her site.  Being a member of this Design Team has made me grow and stretch my imagination in ways that I never had before.  I have taken three Copic Coloring Classes and will be Certified in Copic Coloring at the end of May.
Here is my project.  It is a "lunch bag album" with Under the Sea Set (colored) I am making it for my little next door neighbor who is like a granddaughter to me.  I am going to fill it with pictures that I take of us this summer and give it to her.  I bought her a little pink fishing rod so we can go fishing together.

If you would like to see more pictures of the inside of the album, please stop by my Blog today!Hugs,
