Hello All,

   Thought I would share what I have been working on all week- It was my granddaughters graduation from High School and I made this for her party - Not hard to do and lots of fun.


 This is a 6X6 photo album I made using Chip board covers and card stock to make it. Her school colors are Orange and Black and this year she was into camoulage. I made the flowers from Spellbinders die leaves from Marianne Dies and Martha Stewart punches.

 This is one of the pages to show where the pics are kept.


 This is what the inside of the book looked like

 And this is the back.
Hello All,

   I had to make two cards so I am posting them both - this one is for the little fisherman of the family.

Very simple with the help of all our fine dies and stamps - Frame is Dutch Doily by Cheery Lyn DL130
Stamp of little sailor fisherman is Sparkle N Sprinkle Set 00-287P4 Children it was pop on the page I used my Inkadinkado tree stamp and chalked the rest. I used the new TH markers to color the little boy.Love them.

Hello All,

   This has been a very busy week - don't know how I find time to work. LOL  This is for Joan's challenge

http://www.atjoansgardens.com/2012/06/this-weeks-challenge_14.html

This was a fun card - like to make kids card fun for them so this little Choo Choo moves (runs down the track) Made using Close to my heart stamps, and a couple of my trusty rubber stamps for grass and rocks.
The card has a slit along the track with the two penny's on the back of the train so it will move. Fun

Hello All,

   Time for another challenge at Joan's - I made my card and then realized I had used a punch instead of a die cut so I used the same Idea and changed to a die cut. I am posting the other card but not entering in the challenge. This is the die cut -

Hello Again,

  I decided to do a very simple but elegant looking card another find at Joan's.  Hope you like it.

Cheery Lynn is making some really beautiful dies and wanted just simple -
This die is: FRM Peacock #137
I used the Corner form Cheery Lyn B165 but cut it down some
Card was embossed with the Sizzix Swiss Dot
That's it - I could have added pearls or rhinestones but this could be more masculine
