Whilst on holiday in Florida a couple of years ago, in our second week..... I discovered that all 25cent coins had a state on the back.....aaaagggghhhh I didn't know this, and it was too late to start looking for them all, soooo we got as many as we could find, which was about 17..........
THEN... my dear friend was going to Las Vegas for a holiday, and I asked if she would collect the rest for me - she said she had so much fun doing it.  She didn't know that each state had a coin either...


here they are!!!!
All in their little protective wrappers, I have now ordered the 50 states cricut cartridge, and can't wait to do a scrapbook just for them!
each state will have a coin - flag - state - tree - bird - flower
and anything else I can think of...yey!!!

let it snow...

These were last years heirloom dies... but the snowfalkes are this years new release...
I cut out the snowflakes, and stuck on small bit to the top layer,(before sticking the whole thing together) cut around, then carried it down to the next layer, and cut around the last. It is a bit fiddly, but lovely when finished.

Blue on white

I just love white and blue on white for christmas....

I had a few images that I had coloured in last year, and when I found them again, I was going to bin them....then the thrift in me said no.... so I sat and had a play...

Where does the time go?

I really can't beleive that it has been 4 months since I was last here....
I will have to make up for it!!!

I wanted to make both the girls a little album each full of 'our family chrismtas' things - photographs of them from sitting on santa's knee to now!

I will include family traditions - recipies - favourite things... etc.  I want them to have a little christmas to take with them when they leave home...(eventually).  They are now 20 and 18 years of age....
It is very much a work in progress, I now have to decorate them.


 These are little Christmas books I am making for my daughters.


They are made from cereal boxes, envelopes and cards.

 I have used backing papers that are cutsie, but they will be covered with photographs.

 The spine is decorated with wired ribbon
