Here is the layout of our special dinner. I did a flip to show our dinner plates - those pictures are hidden because they are in color. At the restaurant they gave be orchids - I took a picture of the orchids and put them out and put them as a boarder of the picture of me holding the orchids. This is also in color to show the actual color of the orchids.
During our family vacation we celebrated our 9 year wedding anniversary. We had a fabulous time. My sister and niece took the kids to dinner and ice cream so that we can enjoy a nice romantic dinner together. We really enjoyed the time together and were in much need of some time alone.

In December my oldest sister turned 40 - so for this BIG celebration, I decided to make bags for the guests. I cut the bag using the Cricut and the TBB&M cartridge. The bag is pink and brown bazzill paper. I used the Cuttlebug - "Hiipie Chick" font for the "40th" and cut the flowers with the George Cartridge. The middle of the flower has a rhinestone. Inside the bag I put a pink votive candle with the votive holder. Not only was she surprised by the party but she LOVED the bags.
I made this paint can for my SIL. During Christmas, my brother purchased lots of Close to My Heart items and I put them all inside the paint can. I made envelopes for the stamp sets using coordinating paper and ribbon. She totally loved her gift and was very surprised with the wrapping.
This is a monogram card I made for a challenge that Regina did on the Cricut. It is made at 5.5 inches. I embossed the "T" with the Cuttlebug and hung a dragonfly charm to the end of it. I used paper from the Pocket Full of Poises DCDW stack, the pink paper is from Cricut, I used Prima flowers in orange and pink and put a rhinestone in the middle. The ribbon is double sided, hot pink and orange.
One day my daugher and I took her brother for a hair cut. While we were there, there was a girl donating her hair to Locks of Love. At this time my daugher Kasi (which was 4 at the time) decided that she wanted to let her hair grow to donate it for the same cause. This year - one week before she turned 6 - she finally donated it. We are very proud of her for doing such a thoughful thing at her age. Here are a few pictures as well as a scrapbook LO that we did for her teachers scrapbook.
This tin I made for my special niece Jessica which turned 13. I love her as if she were my daughter. These are her favorite colors. I used my Cricut and cut the monogram at 5.5 inches. I got the purple cardstock, folded it in half and free hand cut the shadow "H" I used stickles to add shine. The paper is from Pocket Full of Poises DCDW Stack.
