Train Album

Even though Pat kept me busy helping her with her page designs over the past few days,  I was able to complete a chipboard album of a trip to the Train Museum with my grandchildren.  This was really a fun album to work on and brought back so many happy memories.  
I remember how very excited my grandson Lane was when he was sitting in the train acting like the engineer and then telling us all about every train.  This boy really knows his trains!!!!  And to think it all started out with Thomas the Train!

I especially won't forget how long it took the boy to decide on the perfect train souvenir.  You can tell from the picture his sister was just about all trained out...

Here are a few pics of the album.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please feel free to leave a comment, I would love your feedback!

Design Consultant Weekend

I have had a great time with my house guest for the past five days.  We cropped into the wee hours of the night every night.  With a little guidance, Pat was able to create twenty-four 12x12 pages of her trip to India.  The beautiful pages we created highlighted the gorgeous pictures she took on her trip!!!  (I think she took 1,000 pictures everyday - seriously!!!)
While we were not able to complete the entire trip we certainly made a huge dent in the effort.  We even designed a few more pages for her to complete when she gets back home to Longboat Key.  Overall I think it was a very successful cropping visit and I can't wait until we can do it again!!!
Here are a few pages we put together.

I am glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoyed the pics as much as we did creating them!

Candy | Trinket Boxes

Cricut cartridge boxes...  
I have been saving all of my Cricut cartridge boxes on a shelf in my crop room but now instead of taking up space I am going to re-purpose them for sale to customers who want a unique gift for a special person.  The inside of the box can hold candy for that special valentine or a binder of your favorite photos or jewelry or trinkets.  So many options, limited only by your imagination!!!  Each box can be custom designed.     
A fantastic gift for Valentine's Day for that special someone!!!

Trinket | Candy Boxes

The boxes sell for $25 each. 

Valentine Door Wreath

I bought some flowers at 50% off from Hobby Lobby today and used old wooden letters from two years ago to create a new Valentine Door Wreath.  I think my front door looks much more inviting now to all my guests!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my Valentine's wreath as much as I did creating it!
