While rummaging through my computer I found pictures I had scanned in of my maternal grandparents & greatgrandparents. This is a picture of my grandparents taken while they were in Maine. I don't think I have ever seen them look happier-you can tell grandma has some Maine blueberries in her hand from the way she is holding it.
This is the 1st time I made this-it holds about 5 cards & envies well. Will be making more of these. The tutorial can be found here: http://www.sunflowerstamping.com/2008/11/magazine-holder-tutorial.html.
I tweeked it a little, put my tape in the wrong place the 1st time but am happy with how the 1st "experiment" came out. Added a little bling.
Here is a card box I made for a friend at work-she wanted to give a thank you gift so I put in 5 cards & envies in the box. I used DCWV Butterflies & Blossoms dp. The tutorial can be found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/a2cardbox/
OK-so every year this snapping turtle comes around and looks for a place to put her eggs. Its the same week every year & she comes back to the same exact spot. She has been doing this for 4 years now-each year she gets bigger & meaner looking. I always irritate her a little by getting close & taking pictures. This year I don't think she buried them on our lawn-last I saw her she was making her way through the flower bed-an hour later when my husband was coming home he saw her in the ditch by the side of the road heading back to the wet area she must live in. Here are a couple of pics-isn't she scary looking?

This is a picture of our little furbaby we adopted from Paris Hill Cat Hospital. My husband spotted her when we were there for Cocoa just before Christmas. He fell in love-5 days later we had her home. She is good company for Cocoa and is her daddy's little girl.
