Instagram Madness!

I've been neglecting the ol' blog again. It's not because I haven't been doing much, or that I've been so very busy that I can't find the time. It's just that I haven't felt like it. I am beginning to think creativity and blogging run hand in hand, and they were running in the opposite direction I was going in. 
But not today!
Today I made stuff! 

But first I cleaned my table off, read some of my book club book, ate breakfast, made some phone calls, sent some texts,  checked my emails, printed some pictures, checked my favourite blogs, checked facebook, and drank a Cherry Coke before 10 am. 
We have a saying..."I put the "pro" in procrastination. But when I get started, I get things done. 
So without further ado....
my Instagram album.
I got the idea from Linda, and ever since, I've been thinking about doing it. 
I was so loose with it! I grabbed a container of paper and just started picking stuff out. I used my favourites, not that I don't like all my crap, but there are some papers I like to hoard, and those are the ones I decided to use. 

 And I used Martha Stewart's labels. They are a good deal. 
 And washi tape. All kinds of it. And lots of it.
 I printed the Instagram photos as wallets using my new printers software, it worked perfectly. 
 Dusted off the handy dandy Bind-It-All and in less than 2 hours, I had my little album done. 
 I put the photos in chronological order. 
 And I'm caught up to this week. I have lots of extra pages.
I'm kind of regretting using that butterfly paper, I bought 2 sheets and have used them both! I guess what I'm really regretting is not buying more. 
I've got lots more to blog and will try to get back on the horse. There's babies, trips, a wedding, food, photo shoots, dogs, and so much more to blog about. And there's also that and more in the future.

I so need one! You should sell these on etsy! You'd make a fortune! It rocks.
