Miss you a Latte

I have two great friends that I miss (A LATTE!) and made two of this card to send to each of them.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  I like the distressed ink from Tim Holtz and was able to use up some scrap paper...always nice!

Foodie Friday - Sausage Rollups

Hi all!!  Foodie Friday again.  :)
Today, I want to share a super easy, super delicious appetizer recipe that my BBFF, Christy had on her blog.  Appetizer: Sausage Roll-Ups.  I made these the other night and my fam loved them!!   All you need is two cans of crescent rolls and one tube of sausage. 

Flatten the crescent rolls out on a cookie sheet.  It's easy to keep them in a rectangle, just close the seams - they come out of the can with 4 stuck together - put 1/4 of the sausage on each of the rectangles and roll the long side toward you. Then slice into about 1 inch pinwheels.  Bake about 20 minutes at 350.  EASY! AND YUMMM!!!  This makes a bunch too!
Thanks, Christy!!! xoxo

Spa Party

Hi my crafty friends!!!
Oh what fun this is!!  My daughter is having a Spa Party on the 28th so we are getting some decorations done!  It's a lot of fun.  I made these invitations using the Slumber Party cartridge and made "appointments" for all of the girls to come for facials, mani's and pedi's!  :)  It will be a slumber party too, so I am sure I will have pictures to show of the fun!!!  Stay tuned!  :)
I decided to also put each girls name on the invite....I LOVE it!!!
 The inside... :)
 I attached ribbon and tied in the back
 Couple of ideas for labeling the far, so good! :)
This is going to be a great party...we can't wait!!

Shuttle Fun

Hi my crafty friends!!!  I have been watching a lot of tutorial videos on mini-albums.  Combine that with a great trip to Florida in December  with someone on my team who just happens to love all things space and the fact that the Kennedy Space Center is on the way to the airport from our oceanfront hotel makes for a really fun mini!! 
I really had fun making this album and there are tons of pictures.  I made an envelope mini and even made the envelopes with the cricut!  I also used my Zutter for the first time!!  Cool way top bind up the album!!
Thanks for looking and more pictures to come on the second album I made!!  This one is for Danny, the next one you see will be for me!  :)
I am also positive some cute beach pictures will also be scrapped!  :)
Thanks for's way better in person with lots of fun lifts and flaps and fun!!!! :)

Page one the little envelope opens with a small place to journal.  The envelope flap on the left also opens to reveal a photo mat and can also hold more photos and/or brochures. 

I made this photo mat for inside that envelope...Front and back below...

The flag is on a small card which opens to reveal a spot for journaling
