Vacation & a side job

Wow!!! long time no post!!! Took a little vacation (much needed) with the whole family!! we rented a motor home & went to Country Thunder for 4 days! Had a BLAST!!! I could write a whole 2 page post on just what we did & who we saw...But I will not bore you with all that.

Then when we got home I had to get right to work as I promised a girl I work with that I would make all of her daughters graduation announcements! YIKES!!!! what was I thinking???? I have only done something like that once before & that was for my parents.......So this is what I ended up with: She had 2 different pictures...such a pretty girl huh!!! so I made half like this and..... And the other half like this. Tried to keep it pretty simple & easy to recreate. Then I had to figure out how to box them up & this is what I came up with for that: Luckily....she loved it all!!!!! So now I can cross that off my list & it is to the next. This weekend is the CKC scrap booking convention!! Woot Woot....Sooooooooooooo excited!!! Signed up for a few classes & hope to learn some cool new stuff & of course do a bit of shopping!!!

Well better go clean my craft room (make room for some new CKC stuff)!!!!! :)

Thanks for today's visit!!

The announcements turned out soooo gorgeous, Gwen!!! I'm so glad she loved them too, but not surprised! I can only imagine how fun Country Thunder was & how wonderful to have your whole family enjoying it together! Sounds like a perfect vacation!!!

love the second one with velum, great job and of course should have known you would do a cute box to hold them all!

The announcements are great. I think the velum adds the finishing touch. Thanks for the great idea.
