Love vinyl!!  I'm organizing my daughter's room and decided that it would be clean and easy to label a storage bin for her Legos.  Next will be a bin for all her Monster High dolls.......
(used Silhouette Cameo die cutting machine)

Birthday Card!

It's my daughter's birhday tomorrow and I have been wanting to make a "waterfall-slider" card for a while now so I decided to give it a try with her in mind!  It's actually a pretty easy card to make once you get the mechanics of it down!!  I'm looking forward to using this technique on future ideas....

Sorry I haven't been posting lately ~ out enjoying the hot, lazy days of summer with my kids cause they grow up so fast ~ you have to soak up every minute with them while you can (and when they still want you around...)

I got my friends hooked on a Canadian Coffee Company called Tim Hortons ~ apparently they make the best coffee. I'm more of a "foo foo" coffee drinker with all the "specialty" drinks, so wouldn't be able to tell you how good it is!!  So while I was vacationing last week I picked up 2 large cans of coffee from Timmy's and had to label them so my friend and her husband would "share"!!

So it's the School Carnival tonight and I thought of the perfect item for my kids to carry to collect tickets and prizes so I don't have to have full pockets!!  I picked these buckets up at the dollar store and then with vinyl, added their names.  I found printable tickets online which was my little added touch!!
