Michelle and I love this time of year! The Christmas trees, the ornaments, the family, friends and for Michelle - shopping! Michelle is the kind of person that gets up the day after Thanksgiving at the crack of dawn and has a blast getting the deals - I however, was content at the desert as far away as possible from the crowds!
Thank you all for sticking with AMM through the ownership change - I know it wasn't easy for anyone - Natalie is such a wonderful and creative person - to then hope that someone else would take as much pride in her "baby" as she did - scary. We hope that we have not let anyone down. We are proud of where AMM is heading!
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Holiday and a Propserous New Year.
We will be spending Christmas with our loved ones, eating way too much, enjoying good company, being thankful for another year and our healthy families and friends and that includes all of you!
Thank you again!
Alison and Michelle

Movie Stars scrap too! hehehe We saw Jennifer Esposito yesterday at the Christmas book class - she is even prettier in person and WOW - she is tiny! We were going to wait outside for her and ask for a photo - but we felt like stalkers and went home! It was cool though! Here is a photo I found online of her - in case you don't know who she is:
We went to Debby Schuh's class yesterday in LA. It was so great to meet her and what a fun class. I am adding photos of her album - she has some incredible ideas! There are 13 pages to the album - I have only uploaded a few here. If you would like to see the whole album - let me know. We used Anna Griffin products and they are beautiful and excellent quality - also a SEI album. Debby is such a great teacher. She is patient and really funny! I would highly recommend taking a class from her if you have the the time! Okay - ignore the background on these photos . . . .I did them at my desk . . .and it isn't too pretty!
Cover - I didn't pay attention when I photographed - I should've fixed the ribbon!
One of my favorite pages
Another of my favorite pages . . .okay I will be honest - I LOVE all the pages . . .especially this one we did on a "transparency" that looks like a present and backs to the next page . . .SO COOL! I am gonna add this on . . .here it is:
This is actually 2 pages. The box and holly paper is on one page (the transparency) and the paisley and pink paper is the next . . . great idea, huh?
Anyway - so impressed with Debby and so impressed with myself for actually finishing a project . . . can't wait to take the next class with her! She is doing online classes for CKU - think I am gonna sign up TODAY!! Will let you know how they go!
