Grandson's Graduation

My oldest grandson is graduating next week.  I made a simple card to hold something very special inside of it for him...

I can't wait to see him walk across the stage and receive his diploma!  And then it will be party time on Saturday!!!!

We R Memory Keepers Lucky 8 Punches

Yay!  I received my four Lucky 8 punches I ordered last month.  As soon as I had a spare moment I just had to try them out.  Absolutely love the flower punch!!!  It has so many possibilities.  Each punch has multiple designs that can be cut.  The punches are a little pricey, but I am positive I will get my moneys worth out of them.

Here are the punches I purchased (Floral Burst, Lace Kerchief, Tatted Doily, Retro Scallop) and the end design from each punch...

First punch (Tatted Doily) - started with a 12x12 piece of card stock...

And 8 punches later - Voila!

But the flower punch (Floral Burst) is my absolute favorite punch!!!  Look at all the possibilities from this one punch.  A frame for another page, little tiny flower confetti for shaker boxes, scraps that could be trimmed to use as feathers or petals, etc, etc , etc!

I just think it is cool to be able to take one 12x12 sheet of paper and with 8 simple punches make it a beautiful round decorative paper!  Too cool!!!

Retro Scallop & Lace Kerchief Punch results.

New Cricut Carts!

I received happy mail!

Krissy's Album

Completed album number two during the weekend retreat at Memory Lane Inn.  Just in time for Donna to send to her niece for Mother's Day.  I hope you enjoy the pics.

Tammy's Album

I was busy the past 3 weeks.  I have been working on two album orders.  Here's a small sampling of Tammy's album.

Donna ordered the album to give to her sister for Mother's day.  Donna called me yesterday to tell me her sister said "the album is the best gift ever - better than a new Coach purse!"  What a wonderful compliment.

Drew's Graduation Album

I am working on an album with my daughter-in-law for my grandson's graduation.  We started it right after Christmas and almost have it completed, except for the Prom pages that just took place a couple weeks ago.  I cannot believe my oldest grandson will be graduating...

Here's a couple more.  I love the pics with his dad.

One of my all time favorite layouts is my little cowboy.  I can't wait until my grandson sees this album at his graduation party with all his friends!  LOL

Hope you enjoy the pics - I sure enjoyed designing them!

The Big Move!

The first post on my new blog - Woo Hoo!!  After struggling for months with the blog built into my website I decided it wasn't worth the frustration.  Last weekend at the Memory Lane Inn retreat in Tyler my good peep Stefani helped me set up my new blog!  Thanks Stefani - I think this one is a winner! 
So now I need to get busy and start posting what I have been up to for the past couple of months.  Look out world... LOL
