Happy Thanksgiving - Vinyl

I ordered some vinyl from CraftVinyl. It is very nice quality vinyl and I highly recommend them. Anyway. this is my front screen door. I just wanted to do something simple. Well, it is NOT simple to layer vinyl!!! It was next to impossible to keep the air bubbles out, let alone line things up. I don't think I did too bad considering it was my first time trying to do this.

Turkey - Create A Critter Turkey - all parts cut at 11.10"
Happy Thanksgiving - MS Seasonal Cake Art - cut at 6.45"
Gypsy (of course)

With Sympathy

My daughter recently had a death in her extended family. Sympathy cards are not my favorite to create. I always second guess myself as to what is appropriate. Well, this is what I came up with.


Card: Stock 5 x 7 card kit, cut to a 5" x 6.75"
Black cardstock - cut at 5" x 6.75"
White cardstock - cut at 5" x 6.75"
Martha Stewart punch around the page - Double Loops
Cuttlebug folder - Victoria
Embossed White cardstock - 4" x 5.75"
Black ribbon
Oval "with sympathy" tag - created on the Gypsy (using TBBM)
"with sympathy" stamp from Michael's $1.00 bin

Inside card - I looked up some card verses on the internet and found one I really liked, so I copied it and pasted it into a 5 x 7 WORD document, then printed it on my home computer.

Another reason I've been so busy ....

my Granddaughter .....

My daughter and granddaughter live with us. My daughter works nights so that we don't have to put the baby in daycare. I work a full time day job, so my evenings are spent "playing" and not scrapping .... but that's okay. LOL

Below is a current picture of our precious granddaughter (my daughter has requested that I not post any direct shots of her). She is now 7 1/2 months old and getting into EVERYTHING ... I'm beginning to think that she isn't going to crawl and will just start off walking, or maybe even running! LOL

Busy, Busy, Busy ....

Man .... things around here have been very busy.

The beginning of October was our high school's homecoming. Since I haven't moved away from the community, it is always a GREAT time to run into people from high school!!

This year was extra special. It was the 30th reunion of our Color Guard. For those of you who may not know, the color guard are the members of the marching band who perform using flags and rifles (and other things as well). Well, I was a member of our Color Guard when I was in high school ... those are my best memories from high school!!!

Ok, so we ended up marching in our homecoming parade behind the current marching band and it was GREAT! We even did a routine, so everytime the band played the school song we did our routine. It was so wonderful to hear everyone cheer us on, and at times it was so loud we couldn't hear the band.

Afterwards we had lunch and had time to sit and visit and look at old pictures. We hope to do it again some day.

This years turn out was approximately 50 reunion guard members, ranging in age from 51 to 19.
