I Need Crafty Therapy! Winner Announced and a Giveaway

This past week seems all a blur!  Tabitha and David are now living in their new home.  Jim and I are exhausted and I know David's mom, Rosemary is wiped out. 

Jim and David

In the middle of all the moving Tabitha's girlfriends hosted a couples baby shower!  This was my first couples shower.  It was different and fun.  The statements and questions about childbirth from the men were often entertaining.  Tabitha opened the presents gingerly and David tore into them.  LOL  Their theme was a Mardi Gras Shower.  It was bright and festive.

Now, with all the moving and baby shower I haven't had time to "create!"  I'm in bad need of a little creative therapy.  After a good house cleaning today I'm going to finish up a Valentines Card for my sweetie to give to him tonight with a wonderful home cooked meal. 

I did manage early in the week to work on a project I had been putting off for awhile.  When I complete a scrapbook page I often throw them in a container to put in a book LATER.  For 2010 I kept up with putting pages in their respective books for weddings and other special events.  Here are the boxes I had of other layouts in during 2010. 

Can you guess how many albums I made from all these layouts?  Here are some clues...
  • I like two inch thick albums
  • My pages are often bulky
  • Some of the book are ring binders and some of post bound
Leave a comment and a guess how many books I made from them and I will choose a winner from the correct answers.  I'll put together a little crafty creative therapy package for the winner.  Extra chances for being a follower of Debby's Dare.  I'll pick a winner Wednesday!
