Backpack Mini Scrapbook.

A big THANK YOU to Sabine for hosting the Inky Fingers on Sunday, April 15.  The afternoon started with hugs, show and tell of projects we've made, catching up on the "happenings" in our lives and getting the potato bar ready for the delicious lunch. We "oohed and ahhed" over Sabine's beautiful  home, chatted some more, and after eating lunch we were ready to make our Backpack Mini Scrapbooks.  Sabine did all the cutting  we just had to score and assemble.  For a tutorial click on the link below.

This is a nice project to make for a teacher, a grandparent, to mark a special event or just for fun because it is so easy and makes such an impression.    A great Sunday afternoon and we even got to meet Sabine's husband John and their beautiful children Charlotte and Luke.

A little bird told me....

Christine painted this bird on the napkin holder, all free hand, and I was lucky to get it for my birthday.  Beautiful!  Unfortunately this creative talent skipped my generation, my mom was very good at drawing too.
Thank you again Christine.

Fat Free Cupcakes

Caryl took all the fat out of these cupcakes and loaded them with "cuteness".  Can you guess what they are made of?

Thank You

My birthday was April 1st and we celebrated at Caryl's house, however Christine couldn't make it so today we continued the celebration right along with all the Easter happenings; egg hunts, basket hunt, brunch and candy eating...lots of candy eating.  I was surprised with a beautiful display of cards made by Angela, Caryl, Claudia, Monique, Dawn and Christine.   THANK YOU, THANK YOU ALL!!!

The time has gone soooo fast that I had to look back in my day planner for the date.  The Inky Fingers got together at Angela's house in January and made calendars.  Each member was assigned a calendar month and made enough copies for each person.  The stand for the calendar is a CD case, turning the cover around created the stand.   Double click on the photos to see them larger, sorry a couple are a little blurry.
