Magical Mini Album

A little project I wanted to share using Close to My Heart's "Magical" collection.

I offered this workshop years ago using other themes but thought I would bring it back!  Love this collection and how it goes so well with my Disney pictures!

Hoping you're having a fabulous weekend!

Be Careful What You Resolve......

My New Years resolution for 2015 was "Be Brave"...and so I have taken a new job and relocated after 30 years of living in Woodland.  Still in Cali, of course, from Northern California to the Central Coast.  It has been an adjustment, but am so happy to be able to spend my weekends visiting places like this!

My hubby had to stay for a couple of years to finish out his retirement but I see him almost every weekend.  Which leaves me more time to craft and hopefully blog!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

Banner Frame

I held a "Scrapbuster" workshop for my
customers to use some of their stash to
create a chip board Banner Frame
 from CTMH.

This was my sample that I am using in my
craft room.  Once I hang it up, I will post a picture.
I have an awesome orange framed mirror that
will be hanging next to it.

Yes, I am an orange addict!  :o)
