It sure comes in handy to have things you
made hanging around
This weekend my niece and her husband
Cathy & Tom are celebrating their 25 yr
anniversary. Which is silver of course.
So I got the coffee tray I made and added
a few sayings and wrote on the sides with
SILVER Pen, think that counts LOL.
I will tell them it is for there cottage.
Tom has MS and is retired this year
so I want them to spend every day as
a special one. They are both very sweet

We made 3 lovely cards easy peasy if you have
all the things you need to make them..
These are just 2 which I scanned the other is
a pop up its on Tonniece's blog http://tonyzworldofart.blogspot.com/
The top one has a pocket up front, the
next one you use special paper its like a photo paper
using a brayer to mix the colors and then stamped.
It is definatly my favorite...

birthday party.. It was a beautiful day, she lives in the country
on a large property. They have 4 HUGH trees beside the house.
They had the table set out there for us. There was a beautiful
breeze blowing keeping us cool and out of that nasty glaring sun:):)
Tonniece was painting faces, they had tattoo's for them also..
They have a above ground pool. Taylor is 11 and Kendra is 6
so the children were a mix of ages..
Cory did a fabulous job with the party, it was so organized we
heard no crying, screaming, whining, just lots of laughter..
She had all sorts of games to play
different times for the kids in the pool while others were playing the
games, tons of prizes..We all had a fantastic time..
I love kids and don't often get to be around them, I'm sure I had as
much fun a the kids did..
The night before I whipped up 2 gifts, I took 2 potato chip cans and
personalized them, they are to hold pen and pencils.. Pics below..
What a wonderful day I had....
Tonnice will be puttin pics of the party later http://tonyzworldofart.blogspot.com/

Look at the beautiful Fabric Postcard card I
got in the post it was from http://carolclasper.blogspot.com/
Carol Clasper. It was for her
one year anniversary for her blog.
She was only going to give the first 6
people to comment one, but generously
gave then to all 13 of us. She is so sweet..
Thanks Carol I love it..
If you make it larger you can see the
skeleton leaves under the gold organza..

This is the hand made paper I told
you about in an earlier post.
This is the back of page No. 2.
I wanted to show you the texture
of the paper.
I'm not sure if she used paper
pulp for the base, its quite stiff..
There was two books full of these paper.
leaves etc. There wasn't much
seal on them so lots of the flowers
had fallen off. So I picked ones
with out to much stuff on them..
Well I LOVE them.....
I used one for the orange journal below..
I had some plastic sheets 12inx12in.
I cut them up to fit the pages and made
sleves for them all to protect them...
