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.


We spent our summer family vacation in Sanibel Island, FL. Here is a layout I did with some family pictures we took on the beach. I chose black & white pictures so that the colors can be in the paper and embellishments.

I made this card for the niece of a very special friend. I used chipboard negative letters, misc ribbon and the paper is from Joanns. The embellisments are from Stampin up. The tags are from the TBB&M Cartridge and cut at 2" with the Cricut.


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.
