The Prairie Creek Inn

In March this is where 3 of my girlfriends and myself are going.  We are looking forward to spending a couple of days just relaxing and scrapping in this beautiful cabin. (shown here in summer) We have never done this before, so we are all very excited about it.

This is the lounge.
If anyone is interested in having a closer look at this place, click on the heading and it will take you to the website.

Thanks for visiting & take care,

This is the first time I have participated in WOYWW.
(What's on your work desk Wednesday)
I am currently working on a recipe mini album, which means that I have lots going on at once.  My main work desk is 6' long, plus other work spaces I have in my craft room.

The start of a page in the mini album

Here's the other end of the 6' table.

I've been using my Cricut today with my new cartridge "From My Kitchen"'s another area with a bunch of bits & pieces that I may use for the album.

Bye for now,

Altered Pop Top Can (Feb.14/11)

Here is a little pop top can that I decorated.  The bottom of the can is removed so that you can put a gift inside, then the bottom is glued back on again.  The label is removed and used as a template to cut out your designer paper, then you can decorate the can anyway you wish.  These are really fun to give because the recipient has no idea how you did that???

You can go here for the full instructions.

Thanks for looking & have a great day,

Here's a sneak preview of our son Andrew's newly published book of amazing photography.

Click on the picture to go & see what's inside.

Thanks for visiting my blog 

My New Look!

As you can see my blog has a new look.  I thought it was time for a change.  I'm not sure if I will keep this one, I may find something else, so don't be surprised if it looks different again the next time you visit.
I still haven't had time to make anything new yet, maybe tomorrow. Until then I thought I would show you where I lived as a child in England.  I loved this little cottage and cried my eyes out when we had to move.

Bye for now, I'll be back soon with something new,

Good Morning Everyone!

We are back from our vacation and had a very nice time. 
The weather, which was fantastic, certainly helped me to feel much better than I was feeling when we left.

I don't have anything new to post yet, but here are some cards that I made some time ago......

I cut the picture into 4 equal pieces and layered them onto black card stock leaving a gap which makes it look as though you are looking at the scene through a window.

This is a purse card, inside is a pocket which holds a gift card.

Here's a card that my daughter made. It isn't finished on the picture, but just wanted to show it to you.
I thought the milk & cookies idea was very cute.  To make the cookie with the bite out of it, you punch out a circle, then with a scalloped circle punch, take a small piece off the circle.

If you want to see the video tutorial for this card, go to Dawn's link
on the right, then click on her video tutorials & look for
"Lemonade Cup Card"

......and finally, here's a picture from our trip.

Cozumel, Mexico.
This is our ship in the background.  We visited Florida, Cozumel, Belize, Roatan Island (Honduras) and Costa Maya.

Have a great day and come back soon.
