September 11 Tribute

This card is a tribute to all of the victims of September 11th terrorist attacks. We must always remember the lessons we learned that day.

What a crazy weekend. Gotta love it.

We went out to dinner yesterday to celebrate my middle daughter's birthday. We had a GREAT dinner and then the boys went to Lowes and the girls went to Barnes and Noble. Then Dad has the idea that we all need ice cream. Needless to say we were stuffed when we got home. Kelli had a good time, I think. We got her a Flip video camera and she's be vloggin ever since she opened it.

I did get a chance to do some crafting after we got home.

I'm about finished making Halloween stuff. I did make the 3-D Spooky House this morning, I just haven't taken pictures yet. I've made it the center piece decoration for my entertainement center. It was easier than I thought it would be and so cute.

I know it's September, but I love Halloween

It has been an insane weekend. Sick kids, sick husband, and then it was my turn. I hate to say it, but work may be a relief. At least I know it will be very busy at work, which will make the week go by fast. I know, I know, don't wish your life away. At least that's what I tell my kids all the time.

Anyway, at least I got some crafting done. Here's are a few cards I've made over the week. My favorite is the never ending card. It was so much work. It's like making 4 cards at once. It was fun, but I won't make very many of these. It was so time consuming. I will probably only make one per holiday/season.

I've got a lot of other projects made. I'll try to get them up as soon as I can.

(I'll list as many as I can remember. Most of these were made from scraps I've had for a while and the packaging is long gone.)
