Have a wonderful day!

DAD Mini Album

Hey Y'all!

Here's my latest mini....finally!!

I made this one with the pics already in it since its for a guy and I knew he wouldn't ever put the pics in it himself.  It's for my brother and it's mainly photos of him and his son...my AWESOME nephew who is my favorite little man in the world.  Hugs given freely, kisses too and no worries if I'm not perfect or an emotional girl...I'm still his Aunt Sheddy.  He's the only male I know like that except my Dad.  He can change my day and brighten it with one smile, hug or kiss.  He's the best thing in my life.  :-)  Ok...now down to the mini.

I used so many products on this mini.  I used the Bo Bunny DAD album, but I added my own pages to it as well to have more space for photos.  I will list the products below the video.  I hope you enjoy!

WHEW!!!  What a list and I'm sure I forgot a few things.  I am finally using up some of my stash and things that my generous friends have sent me.  Thanks to all my crafty girls. 

I need to get back to my 12X12 layouts, but the OWH(operation write home) cards have been taking a lot of time and oh yeah...working 20 hours of overtime last week.  I am worn out.  But, I still have a smile on my face and my job.  Plus my cards for the Soldiers Angels program.  Not long left before the Holdiay Card deadline.  Hope some of you have thought about sending a card to a Hero or even better to multiple Heroes.  :-) 

I also started my Halloween Mini album.  My Halloween STASH IS AMAZING thanks to my gals at Scrapbook.com!  When I was member of the month for a swap they loaded me up with all kinds of goodies.  I am so excited to use them up.  I do think I could fill 3 minis if not more with all the products I have on hand.  So, be on the lookout for that.  I hope to finish within a week or so.  OH and come see us at Scrapbook.com!

Thanks for stopping by and your comments are always welcome. 

Later Y'all!!

World Card Making Day - Operation Write Home

Hey y'all!!

Well, today is World Card Making day and if you are a scrapbooker or paper crafter...why not try some cards to help out the wonderful Heroes that keep us safe everyday?  That's right....you can make up cards to your hearts content and send them to Operation Write Home and they will go to deployed service members around the world.  Then the Heroes choose a card from the box and use it to send back home to their family!  You can visit Operation Write Home HERE.  They are also having a blog hop today for World Card Making Day.  You can visit the Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps blog HERE.

So...let's get crafting and make some cards for our Military service members!!  They need to be reminded how much we care and appreciate their service. 

I'm busy making cards myself for OWH but I also have been working on a Dad mini album for my brother.  It's finally finished and I have to get my photos uploaded.  Hopefully I can do the slideshow in the next couple of days. 

Keep crafting!!
