Coming out of hiding

Well, at least for a few minutes! LOL

I am missing all my sweet blog friends! I thought I would post an update on what we have been up to and maybe post a couple of projects.

The girls' party was a HUGE success. One of their friends' mom told me she was told "it rocked!" :) We went with a luau theme, with palm trees and pinapples and leis. The kids did the limbo, played coconut bowling and hot coconut (like hot potato). Here is a picture of the birthday girls.

The visit with my parents was wonderful, as was our anniversary and DH's business party.

I have been busy the last two days trying to get caught up on projects before we head to Arkansas to visit some good friends next week.

I decided to use one of the fabulous mini albums from Magistical Memories a little differently for this month's projects. There are three different pages in the Star book so I used them for three separate projects.

In the first project I used one of the pages as the base for my photos. After covering it in pattern paper I used a second star behind it and added a chipboard fancy frame for the journaling block at the top.

I used the second page to create this door hanger.

I used the last page as the exclamation mark on this card.

Better get going, we have neighbors coming over for dinner tonight. Thanks for stopping and have a fabulous weekend!!!!
