Learning Curve

The new challenge up at Paper Issues is called "Learning Curve". This is my interpretation of the challenge - my sister learning how to make noodles from my grandmother.

Ridin' the Rails

Milo's first train ride - a small red train at the zoo and he loved it!!!
I used vintage train tags from Amy Mattes Designs on this layout. I printed them out on patterned paper, cut out the blue edged one and popped it up.
I punched a section of a tag and used it near the title.
Visit a boys life and get these tags for yourself. You'll love them!!
(They also come with red and yellow edges).

Snow, anyone????

Well, I will take snow over this heat and high humidity any day!!!
Actually, I found this photo while sorting pictures and I just received some new dies, so... My new dies are from Cheery Lynn Designs and are just gorgeous!
I got 6 doily dies, cut out three from the English Tea Party and one from the Canadian Kaleidoscope, and then decided to use them on this layout to give the illusion of snowflakes.
I am so glad to have found these dies!!! I love to use doilies on my layouts, but there is no variety in the stores - all white, all the same pattern. I'm so excited that now I can cut different shapes in different colors!!!!
BTW, these dies cut so beautifully, that I placed another order today for more designs!!!!!
