Spring Banner... Princess Castle and some fun!


How creative is this?  Cheri made a Spring banner for her home.  She used my

Playful Banners: Frills CS00167 (used on the ends) &
Easter Titles CS00191 (Spring).  To make the eggs she used the circle tool in Robomaster and  cut the bunny ears and chick beaks by hand, that's amazing!  I just love the little added details with the ribbons and flowers!  It's such a wonderful banner to welcome

The Princess Castle album  was created by Chrissy, who is a seller on ebay. She contacted me a few days ago to ask if I would mind her using my die-cuts in layouts to place in auction.  I was thrilled to see her work, it is outstanding!

To create the album she used my Enchanted Castle- CS00198 and Princess Carriage -  CS00199  If you click on the picture above you can see her whole album and all the creative pages she made.  And for some fun you can keep  watch  of her  auction as she already has bidders...go Chrissy!



News From the Homefront

Friday was the last day of school for Julie, Kristen and Jennifer...Katie started a new tradition last year to pick them up from school and take them out for snow cones. 

Jennifer said when she stepped outside her school that afternoon she knew Katie was waiting in the parking lot by hearing a stereo blasting the song " Summer time".  

I had my own surprise up my sleeve, Seasons passes to Six Flags.  So on Saturday we spent the rainy afternoon there,  by four o'clock the sun had come out and we were so glad we stayed!  Since most of the crowd had left we didn't have long to wait. We ran from one ride to another in no time! 

Maybe that's why I failed to pay attention to what Katie got me on...The Boss!  She kept saying it was her favorite ride and I would just love it. I should have known that she got me with her laugh as we started to roll.  After the first hill I just closed my eyes and prayed until it was over. I hated it!  It creaked and threw us  from one side to the other and the hills they where humongous! ALL I could thing about was how was my little Julie doing?  But she ended up loving it. 

Jesse and Lorelei had a great time too!  But they didn't ride the Boss, their favorite ride was Scooby Doo's Big Adventure.  I hardly saw Kristen and Jennifer since they found that they could ride Batman over and over again.

Sunday was our recovery day and I needed it as I found out how sore my body was...I blame it all on Katie!

Monday we had the family over for a big barbeque and tried to play the game "Cranium".  We had a difficult time trying to understand the movements on the board so eventually we gave up.  And just settled with drawing a card from one of the challenges.  We discovered very quickly how hard it is to hum a tune to your team...

Well that's about what's been going on around here! We are looking forward to the lazy days of summer ahead by sleeping in...well except for Scott and the boys who have to work. 

Have a great week!
