I'm finished!!

Some of you may know that I have a scrapbooking business. It is called 200 Trees. It is named for my awesome yard that has over 200 trees. Anyway, I scrapbook for other people. The last couple of weeks I have been working on a graduation album for a client. It was a lot of fun but also a lot of work. I had SO many other things going on with the end of the school year and other projects...not to mention every day family matters. I am happy to report that I finished the album on time! whew! It ended up being 46 pages. I think I must have done at least 30 of them on Saturday! It turned out well. I hope the graduate likes it! I am just sharing a couple of pages that I made. This first one uses the treehouse papers and Doodle this from SU. I also added a bit of ribbon from my ribbon stash. The leaves and buds by the flowers are just hand drawn. That is one of the things I LOVE about this set...you can easily add to it.
This next page was done using basic grey papers and a vellum quote. The journaling is temporary...I just copied what was on the back of the photo so mom could re-write it herself. The prima flowers are stuck on with mini glue dots and then dotted in the center with Stickles. The hardest part on this page was getting the heart the right size.
School gets out on Wednesday. yay! Then the fun really begins. I am working on the 'summer charts' today. We worked out a point system for the kids to earn their allowance. The goal is that they will actually DO some things around the house and that they will have their own money to spend and thereby won't be constantly asking MOM for money. We shall see...If you have any great tips on how to get your kids to do their chores, I am always up for suggestions!!
Have a great day!

Wow, good for you on getting the scrapbook done :)! Just curious about your scrapbooking for others business, how do you charge the people? Do you charge a flat rate?
