Bye Friends

This is going to be the last page in my trip scrapbook. Am I finished?...No...I wish. I kinda work on the pages...hopping around...doing the layouts according to how I feel. The weather here is so beautiful and un-seasonal...I felt like using this bright beautiful paper line. It's from DAT'S (local Scrapbooking store)and still available. I was inspired by my gal pal Donna's Calendar page that she did for her Calendar class. She used the Creative Memories oval cutter to cut the ovals out of the paper then put the pics behind. I used my Gypsy to place the circles on the size square that I wanted. It was really easy.

  2. Hemp
  3. Stampin' Up button
  4. Mini Monograms-FRIENDS title and I welded the font letters to create the word BYE

Sympathy Card

My Hubby came home and said I need a Sympathy card A.S.A.P. Don't you love last minute requests. This is a fast one I came up with while he waited. I used the same design I borrowed from Bananastamper except I used my Cricut to cut the pennant shape. I also pulled out the Cuttlebug again...I keep forgetting to use this machine. Well, simple and fast...maybe not the most creative, but it gets the job done.

50's Primetime Cafe layout-Disney World

Get your elbows off the table...finish your your vegetables...what, do you live in a barn...and the dreaded...Don't make me get my kids HOWL at this restaurant. ps...We had the best server "Cooper".

I absolutely LOVE this restaurant in Disney Studios. It is so funny. The servers will feed you your vegetables if you don't eat them. It's a throw back to the 50's era. The whole place reminds me of my Nana's house when I was little. I love it so much that I chose to have my  42 nd Birthday there. The food is pretty good too. My son Jake even had his plate hung on the wall, as it was so clean. It's important to clean your plate at this restaurant. It's a can't miss. This paper is a new line still available at DAT'S. There is actually Diamond Glaze on the tv neat. I also used a stampset from Hero arts to make my own background on the beige paper from Echo Park.

Cardset #7-Cinnamon roll

Well...this is another card from the set that I've been working on. I decided to make this one for my Dad. Why a Cinnamon roll? Well my Dad loves this certain recipe for these rolls. His Grandma used to make these all the time when she lived with him and his family. Then, when she passed, his Grandmother took over making them for my Dad from time to time. Well...she then passed and my Mom never made these. So I started making them for him. Now I make them more than his Mom ever  made them for him...but he haunts me for them...all the time. It's become a joke. Boy...this would have been so much better with a cinnimon roll... I actually bought the Cricut cart-Love you a Latte just for this cut. I don't even drink coffee. As a result...I think this is the perfect birthday card for him.
