I was gone for a few months from Blogland and now that I'm back I'm having to re-learn Blogger all over again.  Seriously Google, I don't have time for all this confusion.  Did ya haveta change everything?!

I also found out that Google Friend Connect will soon be eliminated! GOOD ONE GOOGLE! Not only that but I also got a message that I'm at 93% capacity...what ever that means....what? is my Blog going to explode when I reach 100% capacity??? Go ahead, make my day.

I don't know exactly how that's going to work but if you want to be sure to get my posts I encourage you to do one of the following:

Follow Bubblegum and Duct Tape on Twitter 
"Like" Bubblegum and Duct Tape on Facebook

These links are on my sidebar to the right.  I don't want to lose any of the blogs I follow so I'll come over to your blog and do the same, just leave me a note below if I'm not already following via any other way besides Google Friend Connect.  And if you know what is going on, please tell me, send me an email or comment below...I'm totally lost! 

Today I want to share two mini albums I made that my very creative friend, Cheryl Shoats, designed. The first one is a Gone With The Wind mini album. She used a variety of papers inspired by the movie.  The images are from the internet:

on the next page, she made a little set of folders you can stick tags or small pictures inside:

The next mini album is The Wizard Of Oz.  This is such a cute little album, I can't wait to put my pictures inside.  Cheryl used Graphics 45 paper, you can find it at Simon Says Stamp: LINK

 I like this little tri-fold surprise:

I had a lot of fun making these albums and I cannot wait to put pictures inside.


  1. I love these! I'm a huge fan of the wizard of oz AND Gone With The Wind!

  2. Oh my gosh, Maria. I LOVE them BOTH!!.. But I'm most head over heels with the Gone With The Wind one!!! I've been wanting to make one for-EVER, but just can't get to it yet, for being so tied up with other projects. Yours came out beautiful, and I love the die cuts you used! I can see they will be a MUST for when I make my own. They really are a perfect touch, considering the settings Scarlett was most often in, in most of the story/movie!... Well done, there YOU!! (0; Maybe you'll be inspired to do some more? Can't wait to see them if you do! ((hugs)) ~tina

  3. Nice work as usual, Maria. From what I understand, GFC is being replaced by the Following gadget and will only affect those who do not have a google account. Here's an article about it: http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2011/11/google-friend-connect-accessory-to-be.html

  4. Wow, I love those albums. Every time I come visit you, it make me want to get off the computer and pull out all my paper. Then I remember I'm not that good at it, and my digital albums look tons better than my paper albums. LOL

  5. you're a wizard with paper!! ;)
    I found this link http://whilehewasnapping.blogspot.com/2012/02/bye-bye-gfc-what-will-you-lose.html hope is useful!!

  6. Beautiful mini albums! Wonderful use of papers and embellies!
