Tonight I was messy

So I had a friend who recently graduated from the RCMP training program, and during his 6 month "DEPOT" experience, he sent out weekly email "updates" (which were really more like short novels). At the end of it there were 24 looong emails, wonderfully written, just begging to be made into a little album. I was envisioning something more of a mini album/digital scrapbook, but there was just too much writing, so basically I just made it into a little novel for him. I have a few pictures from depot that I still need to print and include. I wanted it to have sort of a 'report, document' feel to it, so I bound it using one of those prong-y thingies. For the front I printed out his name, his troop number etc onto masking tape, and then attached it to the front. (I erased his personal information from the pictures.

I'm really happy with how it came out, I'm actually thinking now I might have to go to depot training, just so I can have a little book of my own when I'm done.

I've been inspired by Donna Downey lately. I'm hoping I can go to her Inspired Workshop in May. Anyways, I was inspired by her "Inspiration Wednesdays" video's, and so (instead of packing like I should be) I got out some paints and was just messy and played. This is really hard for me, my crafts are always neat and planned out. But I had fun just being messy. I'll have to do it more often. I'm waiting for it to dry, so I can had a some more to it. Hopefully I'll finish it up tomorrow.

**Sigh, and then I really need to start packing away my creative treasures
