I made my cousin a bouquet today for hosting the reunion on the 4th of July. I also decided to finish up another family mini book, like the one in an earlier post. It was a busy, busy day, packing and fitting in these projects. One more day to work and then we leave tomorrow evening and I can relax for 10 days. I've been told that there is an Archivers and AC Moore where we are going in Georgia. I've never been to either and am excited to check them out while vacationing. I'll see you all in a couple of weeks! Shari

We're leaving Tuesday for a family reunion in Georgia. I got this bright idea of making favor bags for everyone. This is what I've been doing all day. I made 40 toppers and my wonderful sister helped me stuff them. I used the cricut with the markers and put Pierson (my mom's family name) on the back and decorated the front. The reunion is on the 4th. 1 job I'm glad to be done with! Leave me a comment, I love comments! Shari

This is the card I made for my dad. He's been a fisherman for years. He truely is #1 dad. HAPPY FATHERS DAY DAD, I love you.
I used my gypsy and Animal Kingdom cartridge, I copy and pasted the fish and flipped it, I then welded it to make the card. I cut it out of kraft cardstock, the layer was cut with Tim Holtz lost and found paper. I ran it thru the cuttlebug with the houndstooth folder to make it look like fish scales. I inked all the edges. I used a Tim Holtz memo pin to hold the #1 dad sign. The eye is a tiny google eye. Let me know if you like it. Shari

THIS IS A LAYOUT I DID OF MY NEPHEW JEFFREY AT THE SPECIAL OLYMPICS. HE WON A GOLD MEDAL AND WE ARE CELEBRATING HIS 25TH BIRTHDAY SUNDAY, I THOUGHT HE'D LIKE THIS FOR HIS BEDROOM.
I USED MY NEW CALLIGRAPHY CART FOR THE FONT. STAND AND SALUTE FOR THE TORCH AND TAG. A FISKERS PUNCH, SOME FIBERS AND RED STICKLES.
WHAT DO YOU THINK? CLICK ON THE PICS. TO MAKE THEM LARGER.
HAVE A GREAT DAY! SHARI

Finally I got a chance to get some scrapping done. I recently won a RAK from Robin and told her I'd make something with some of the many goodies she sent me. Here it is Robin. I used the chipboard accent tree, the friend layered sticker, the metal accents for the centers of the flowers, some of the pretty blue buttons and finally I embossed the bird with the antique linen embossing powder and used glossy accents on top. Thanks so much Robin, I really appreciate all you sent me. Shari Remember I love comments everyone. Shari

I was in Mt. Pleasant the last couple of days at the Special Olympics. My nephew Jeffrey competed. He won a gold medal!!!! It was awesome and we had a great time. Hopefully with the rummage sale over I'll be able to get some crafting in this week. Have a great day! Shari

I'm in another swap on the cricut message board. This one is home-made flowers. I send 5 flowers for 8 people and I get 40 back. I finally finished them and sent them out today, I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with.
I'm going to the Special Olympics tomorrow morning for a couple of days. My nephew Jeff has Down Syndrome and will be bowling, I'm going to cheer him on. Maybe now that my flowers are done I'll get some crafting done next week. Have a great weekend everyone!! Shari
