EASTER PHOTO, BIRTHDAY CARD, CUPCAKE WRAPPER & SOME VIDEOS..

YIKESSSSSSSSSSSSS, yes I know it, I have been missing in action for quite some time now...the last few weeks, I have felt like admitting myself to a COO COO FARM....I have been trying to work on creating videos for The Cutting Cafe....

The Cutting Cafe now has a new VIDEO TEAM....and the ladies have done some awesome videos...so please be sure to check out this page and visit it often...

I decided I wanted to start doing a few videos and omg.........it drove me crazy....not doing the video, just trying to get it uploading without pausing and getting a somewhat good picture...so without further ado...I have completed these three...


....I can't say that I am totally happy with them...(kind of blurry), so if anyone has any pointers for me...PLEASE BE TOUGH ON ME AND SHARE....this video making thing is kind of addictive...geessssssssssssss..but I gotta get it looking better...OKAY ENOUGH WHINING...

Here is the card and envelope that is one of the videos.....I used the new LONG SENTIMENT TAGS from The Cutting Cafe...I really love these long tags...it is fun to make different size cards ....it is going to my middle son who will be 15....he is the one that was born on a Easter Sunday 15 years ago....and it wasn't even his due date...take about special...having the same last name and him being delivered that day....his birthday has only fallen on Easter one other time...Here is the Envelope I made to go with it...I used the HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU set for the CUPCAKE on the card and the BIG STUFF SENTIMENT set to make the envelope...I thought I would share a Easter photo of my kids...I have been taking a bunch of photos of them lately because I want to surprise my mom and my mother-in-law with a nice framed photo of them on Mother's Day...THEY ARE 8, 13, 14, 17

AND LASTLY, I am thinking .......TONIGHT'S GONNA BE A GOOD NIGHT......we will be going to see the BLACK EYED PEAS IN CONCERT.............yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...I so need to go have some fun....hugs
