Ornament I made for my Mother in Law

This is an ornament I made for my MIL for Christmas. I got this idea from Archivers. You just take a 2x3 acrylic stamp block and a 2x3 wallet size picture. You use 2 sided tape that comes in 12x12 sheets, also purchased at Archivers. I altered the picture using Picasa and Walgreens photo to add the year and the holly leaves border. Then I just used glue dots to attach the ribbon to the block. This is a picture of our whole family that we took on Thanksgiving. Its her brother and his family, her sister and her family and then her 3 sons and their families. Thanks for looking.

More Twilight Ornaments

I was searching the cricut message-board one day last week and I found the idea of making glitter ornaments. It looked easy enough so I decided to try it. I'm very happy with the way they turned out. The website for making these ornaments is here. I just used black vinyl and the SCAL program, along with the Twilight font to make these ornaments. Thanks for looking.

Lots of pages for my mom's birthday album

I was able to get a couple days off last week and make it a 4 day weekend. So I worked on my mom's album to try and get it close to being finished. I was able to get 8 pages done!! I'm so happy to have gotten so much done. We just have a handful of pages left to do and we have a week before the party, so I'm feeling good about the fact that we'll get it done. Thanks for looking!
