First YourStory

A few weeks ago I ordered the YourStory Bundle of HSN.  That was the first time I actually seen what it could do.  I have to say I LOVE IT!! I so found my easy button on making little photo books.  This being my first project with it, I realized a few things I would do different. 

I would not have my background paper or pictures be so large.  I would also score the papers I put in just to make the pages move a little more easier.  The adhesive is awesome in these covers!  I love this YourStory so much I purschased the YourStory Laminator from last week, they had it on sale, plus used the 30% off they were offering.  

I seen on someone else's blog of using it with the kids pictures.  So I'm going to use it with my kids school work.  What a great way to store things I LOVE IT!!!

All my PC stuff I have enjoyed so much!!!  Below are a few of the pages from my book.

Items Used: Imagine, JT Imagine Cart, TinkerBell & Friends,
Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons and the  Sentimentals Cart.

This is my best friends since 8th grade.

Death and Birthday

I am sorry I have not posted anything this past week.  We experienced a death in the family, my husbands grandfather passed away.  I am honored to been able to know him the past 15 years.  He was an awesome man.  He lived a long life, he passsed away at 95.  Three years ago in Feb. his wife passed away, they were married 72 years.  Amazing couple.  Many of us hope to live until we are 72, and they shared their life together for 72 years.  He will be missed.

The Birthday is mine, even though it doesn't seem like much to celebrate this weekend of such sadness.  But my husband did get me the Your Story from HSN.  He made me smile.  I am happy to have a loving husband, best friend and father all rolled up in one man.  Life is short, enjoy every moment with all  your loved ones and friends.  Remember you never know when it will be the last, so always respect and love those people dear to you.

The big IMAGINE and GYPSY update is here.  It was posted yesterday on the PC messageboard, but I didn't realize it till late last night.  SO needless to say I was so excited I updated my gypsy then started on the imagine.  The updates are awesome for they gypsy.  But by the time I got the Imagine done, it was time for bed for me, now I'm at work.  I've only been able to play with the gypsy for a small amount of time and have not been able to link my Imagine carts to the gypsy yet.  That is my plan tonight...LINK and start playing even more with the Imagine and gypsy.  Hopefully I'll be able to post something NEW tomorrow for everyone!! 

Thanks for following me and sorry for the delay in posting.

IMAGINE Winter Wonderland

As I am sure everyone has had their fill of the snow, freezing rain, sleet, snow and more snow this year.  I bet we all have some awesome pictures we have taken of all that lovely snow.  So I thought I would make a layout for the pictures I know I have taken....espeically the Big Blizzard of 2011  NOT!!!

I used the Imagine Snow Angel Cart for the blue snowflake paper and the background page.  I used the Winter Wonderland words from Winter Frolic and used the same snowflake paper fill from the Snow Angel Cart. The stars and silver snowflakes are from Creative Memories.  I just love this imagine machine, there are so many possibilities!!!  THANKS PC!!
