I live in western Ky just a few miles from the Ohio river. The town of Brookport, Ill which is just across the Ohio River from me was one of the towns that was hit very hard. 3 pple were killed in this town alone. Lots of homes were either destroyed or damaged. They did confirm that it was a F3 tornato that went thru Brookport. Also the town of Diamond, Il was hit hard also. I have a friend that lives there and she didn't have any damage considering that she lived only 2 blocks from where the damage started. Also in the conty that I live in Livingston County, Ky there was an F2 tornado that touched down about 10 miles south of me that destroyed 5 homes and 15 homes are severly damanged.
If yall could take a few minutes and pray for these ppl that lost loved one or have lost everything that they had. This is the time of the year to give thanks for what we have and to know that any time we could lose it. Thanks for letting me write this and for reading it.
On the blog http://www.hidinginmycraftroom.com the challenge this week is "DIE CUTS" You are to use a die cut on your project. I am doing a Christmas mini album and I'm using cuts from the CAC2 cart along with the Cake Seasonal Sampler cart. I'm going to enter one of the pocket pages from the mini. This mini album is one that Ginger http://mysistersscrapper.com had done back in the summer. I knew that I had wanted to do this pocket page mini so I decided to do a Christmas one and with the pocket pages I would do some die cuts. I thought that this would be perfect for the challenge.
Here are some of the pages already done. I hope to finish it this week end because Ole Man Winter is going to bring in some very cold air over the next few days. So I'm hybernating into my craft room.
CITY SIDEWALKS that I had gotten a couple of weeks ago at M's. I used a MS lace doily punch on the flap. The die cut is from CAC2. I used some bakers twine on the candy canes. I made a pocket for the tag that was part of the stack.
This is the back page with the sled from the CAC2 cart. I also used some bakers twine. The presents were on the page from the stack. I may still add the reindeer from the CAC2 just not sure yet. But for now this is what I did.
Here are some of the other pages that I have done for the mini.
I had gotten ome sticky frames from Tuesday Mornings and thought that this would look good on these pages.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
I will post the finished mini when done.
