I never showed my daughters Reading Fair Project. I used my cricut to cut all the images. She ended up winning 2nd place.

Some new cards

I thought I would share some cards I have recently made:

I made this card for a lovely lady who had surgery and is still in the hospital.

I made this bear card for a little girl who had her tonsils out.

My Middle daugher bought this dog for her boyfriend. She wanted to to make him a card as well. I think the card turned out really cute.

This is my youngest's Valentine card for a friend at school along with a dog she bought.

Challenge of the Week #6

The challenge for this week was: Theme "What's Cooking", 2 Printed Papers, 2 Solid Papers, 1 Recipe, Photo's.

I had so much fun doing this layout. The cookies were made before Christmas and I took pictures just for fun. My grandmother taught me how to make cookies and I know the recipe by heart. I love making cookies because it makes me think of her. She had MS and could not walk but she sure could teach you how to do anything just by telling you how to do it. Those are some of my fondest memories growing up.
