Monkey Bis.....

I had to include these....We stopped to see these monkeys and they came right up to you and were so cute....One was very interested in the monkey inside Brad's camera. Brit could have held this little guy all day.

Many of you will recognize this from Becky's blog at inkingidaho.blogspot.com. I demonstrated this for a class this morning. Two cards with matching envelopes and the card file folder. We used the new ribbon,designer paper, corduroy buttons, rhinestone brads, flower punch, Big Shot Top Note and the Polka Dot Punches stamp set.

A couple more Cruise photos

The first photo is a dancer in the Isle of Roatan, Braydon and Britney at dinner, and then Brad and I and the girls from our balcony before leaving Miami.....a week of fabulous memories, just wish it didn't go by so fast.

Big Shot Nugget Box

My SU box arrived and the Big Shot Box was included....watch out, your going to see this one a lot! This is the greatest little treat box and so easy for a quick gift or thank you for a hostess. I also used the new paper and the Yummy stamp set and the Valet ribbon. Each box it filled with paper wrapped Hershey nuggets.

Great Vacation had by all

This year we celebrated the kids birthdays by going on a cruise. Braydon turned 21 years old while on the ship and Brit turned 18 years old in January (so she got to bring a friend.....our other "daughter" Mallory). We left Miami on the Carnival Valor and stopped in Grand Cayman first, on to Isle Roatan, then Belize and finally Cozumel Mexico. There was no lack of fun all week long....we took 1200 pictures, but I thought just a couple was enough to share. If your thinking about a cruise, GO, this was our 7th one and we will go again. Thanks kids for a great time!

One Layout.....3 Cards

I needed a couple quick cards and I was limited on time, so I used one layout and whipped out three cards to suit the need of a Sympathy Card, Wedding Shower, and I Miss You card. They turned out nice. I used a patterned clearance paper from Target,True Thyme, and Black with the black and white checked ribbon. The shower one is the brides paper that matched her colors perfectly. Then I added the brads and clips from SU and MY FAVORITE silver string.

March Brings St Patrick's Day

I have ONE St. Patty's day stamp, so you will see what I can do with ONE stamp...The "Irish" is using the Big Shot alphabet and gluing it on. The rest is embellishments of ribbon and a glitter pen.
