Our Friends!

Good Morning!

I hope that everyone is have a great weekend! I know that I was lucky enough to be able to actually enjoy a "date night" out with my husband last night and it was well overdue!

I wanted to pop up a LO that I had ben working on, on and off for a couple days ... when you see you'll understand why I say that! ha ha Here it is!

I've really started to take stock in my pictures, and what I mean is that we've ALWAYS been big camera people, my husband or myself are always behind the camera, but sometimes when you take a million pictures, you get so overwhelmed and then I personally do NOTHING with them! No more! One of my goals this year was to make sure I'm developing them in a reasonable time ... so far so good, but it's only March!

Our friends are our family and we are so very thankful and lucky to have them, so why not devote some pages to them!

This paper came from a great find! It was a 12 x 12 pack that I picked up at JoAnn Fabrics on clearance for 9.99$ .... the big deal (as they always have their packs on sale for that price) was the fact that it was a stack of 360 sheets! My mom even took some sheets out and barely made a dent in the stack! The lettering is from the Cuttin Up Cricut cartridge and for the first time in a while, I didn't weld on my gypsy! I wanted to make sure that the letters were backed in black because the paper was so busy!

This is what I meant by "working on the page a few days!" My new little toy is the Sew Easy stuff! You pierce the paper with one of the different heads and then just stitch it with a needle and I used embrodery floss! I think it helps add dimension to the page as well as really giving it a homemade feel!

The colored boxes that will hold the pictures came from a mini DCWV stack that I just got on sale at JoAnn Fabrics .... 4.99 with 40% off, so I think I paid 3$ for it ... of course I scooped up a couple different colors! The corner "holders" as I call them were made with scraps! Yup while coasting along blogs a little while back I found instructions on how to make them, so I cannot take credit for this nifty idea, although I'll try to post a tutorial on how to make them and pass the great idea along. ( I wish I could remember who I learned from!!)

So that's it! LO complete! I wanted to make sure that I put some LO's up because I had held a little survey on the side of my blog to see what people wanted to see more of, so that's that! Although I will of course still be working on other projects as well! =)

Thanks for stopping by and as always,

Happy Crafting!
