Back Pack Mini Album

Hi Everyone!

Well it is probably back to school week for most of your children!! How exciting! About a year ago or so, I had seen two videos on creating a mini back pack for school (paperphenomenon, and sunnystampin), I really wanted to do it, but had trouble with the binding portion.  Well after numerous examples, I pretty much ended up doing Laura's from "followingthepapertrail" binding idea "genius".  I think it is the best, and I love it.  So here are some pictures of the back pack.  Thank you Ladies on youtube for this wonderful idea!!!

I think the only thing I would do is change the belt portion to ribbon, the material I used was really bulky.

Until next time stay happy and healthy enjoy!!!

Hi Everyone:

I have another non-craft post today.  My lovely friend Angie's daughter got married on August 11, 2012.  Angie and her daughter did most of the decorations for the wedding, as well Angie's husband.  They used the Silhoutte for most of the decor in the reception.  They did a fabulous job!  I am hoping to get some pictures for you soon.

Baby Shower Invitation - Photoshop Elements

Hi Everyone:

Another short and sweet post today. So I have been playing with Photoshop Elements for about a week, trying to come up with an invitation for my bosses baby shower. The theme is little cowgirl, so cute.  I purchased the clipart online, I believe it was from an etsy store. I can't remember right now. Here is what I came up with!

Until next time, be happy and healthy!!!
