I'm Back from an Amazing Trip and Missing my Crafty Friends!!

Hi,

The past Five Days were Amazing......So Much fun to get to Spend time with Such Wonderful Ladies.... I'm Truly Blessed for the Friends I have made in this Hobby!

I had a little Fun one day at the retreat making an Accordion Album using Karen Burniston's Accordion Die and Simon Says Stamp April Kit!!
When I saw the Papers I was immediately in Love with the Colors and I am usually so not a Yellow Person!!

Here is the Project:


I folded it a little different so I could Add another Picture on the Front when it is folded.  Usually you fold the small pages opposite of the outer pages. I folded them the same and made a front Page which I will show you in a few.....
All Papers are from the April Card Kit at Simon Says stamps.  The Sentiments are also from that kit.
All the cute Kitties and Dogs on this card are also Stamps from Simon Says Stamps....I just Fell in love with them at the Retreat and MUST get them ALL!!!!

Here is the Front:

Aren't those Boston Terriers the Cutest?  Heidi at Simon Says has a male named Simon and this stamp is made because of him and drawn by Kristina Werner..... LOVE it!!

Here are close ups of the inside pages.....

 

I don't know about you....but this book just makes me Smile!

There are so many possibilities with this Accordion Album Die...I just Love Creating with it!

I'll post some more cards I made and some pics in the up coming Days....Today I need to Rest and reflect on the good times and special Ladies I got to Spend some time with......

Hope you have a great day!!

Apparently it is not the water from the lake but, in fact, pure talent coursing through you, since you can pack your stuff into a suitcase and come back with amazing projects like this! I covet your coloring skills! Who makes the Hope you have an amazing birthday stamp? Is that one stamp or did you make it from letters, etc.?
