Papertrey Princess Challenge

Welcome to the newest Papertrey Princess Challenge!
Lee  posted the latest challenge.
She challenged us to make a mini album.
It could be any theme but since Christmas was just here
and my parents celebrated with us, what a perfect thank you gift!
I used a 6x6 AMM album I had in my stash.
Since I don't scrapbook much, this was a fun challenge!
Here are some of the photos.

I have made some great friends via the world of blogs and I am very thankful!
I wish each one of you best wishes in the the new year
and I look forward to all of the craftiness in 2012!

Thank yous in different styles

Tis' the season for making thank you cards!
I decided to break open my new stamps and paper. 
My PTI box came while we were gone, so it was like a Christmas present!
I decided to use the Thank You stamp that PTI generously gave to its customers.
I challenged myself to use the same stamp and the same die cut but in 4 different ways.
I like the results, let m know what you think!  Enjoy!
In Pure Poppy....
 In Raspberry Fizz.....
 In Canyon Clay (love this new color!).......
 In Hawaiian Shores.....
Hope you having a great week. 
We are having a school or work!

Happy Wedding Day

The weekend before Christmas we headed to a family wedding in Ohio.
The kiddos had such a great time with their cousins that were also attending the wedding. 
They came in from Buffalo, NY and Detroit, Michigan.
While the kids had a blast, the adults got to catch up and have some wedding fun!
We are so glad we made the time despite flying out the Utah the next day!
Here is the card that I made for the bride and groom.

Flying the coop......

This is the message I found before we left on our vacation.
What a great week it has we are back home and time to celebrate the holidays with family.

Happy holidays to your family from ours.
May the joy of the season be with you today and throughout the year.

 With Christmas right around the corner,
it is a mad dash to finish Christmas presents.
My kiddos love sports, so I put together a couple of collages for them.
I used my cricut to cut out the letters to customize them!
Here is the soccer version.....
 and the skating version.....
I can't wait to see there faces!

Christmas Tags

Tis the season for making tags.
I love to make tags because not only are they quick and
easy but they pack a punch when your recipient sees it!
I used a variety of Papertrey Ink products from this years Christmas release and past years.

Last one...Happy Birthday Dad

I promise this is the last birthday card of the year!
Last week my Dad had a birthday. 
While he does not prefer to acknowledge them, he knows the Grandkids do!
