Cards for Haiti

I have been working on a few cards for one of the online companies I occasionally buy from. She asked for cards to send to the people of Haiti. She has been there and loves the people and wanted to get some cards to send to her contacts there to cheer some of the people up. In a very small way it lets them know the people in the U.S. are constantly keeping them in our thoughts and prayers. Please continue to pray for the Gengel family in Rutland that their daughter Brittany is found. That's all for tonight.

Reindeer Dust

Every year we have a tradition of feeding Santas reindeer with Magical Reindeer Dust. All the kids grab a bag of the deer food (oatmeal, glitter and sugar) and sprinkle it on the lawn. The idea is that the reindeer will spot the glitter sparkling in the moonlit and will guide Santas sleigh to your door. We add a slight twist to it. While the children are sprinkling the dust, Christmas elves leave a bag on the front door step with Christmas Pj's and a book! Its great to see how quickly they all get in their pajamas because it means its time for bed and Santa will be coming soon. Thanks to my daughter Joelle's mother-in-law Judy, we now have bracelets with bells so if the reindeer don't see the food they will hear the balls. Cute huh! In keeping with my goal to do some page layouts this year, the pics are of our Magical Dust, enjoy!

Baby cakes

I wanted to do something that would make it a party for Mattie and Mia when they welcomed Cecilia home. At the time I made these little "babies" we didn't know if it was a girl or a boy! I also had the Sweet Treats cartridge that I was dying to try! If you would like the directions on how to make these just leave me a comment with your e-mail address. TFL.
