Theme Day Thursday November 3, 2011 RETRO


Happy Thursday... Only 52 more days until Christmas!!! Yippie.
Very soon as I feel better and get help with my business I will be crafting daily!!!! 
On to what my amazing design team has made for today's Retro theme! I asked them to think outside the box and be very creative... and they were!!!


Samantha used Nifty Fifty for her card.





Tammy S used her Nifty Fifties cartridge to make this project. To see how she created it please visit her blog at http://thepurplemuse.blogspot.com/




Amanda used Kates Kitchen for the project.
 
 
 
 
 
Melissa used Forever young to make this and gave her first try at Twine
 
 
 
 
 
Emily used  Indie Art Cricut Cartridge to make this.
I will let you know when she posts this on her blog.



I just want to first say a HUGE thank you to my design team. They are really helping me to hold the blog together while I am not feeling well and setting up the Webstore. I cannot thank them enough. They are such a fun, talented group. I have slowly been setting up the webstore and learning so much and unfortunately making a few mistakes along the way. But every mistake I make I am learning and making sure to not make the same mistake twice. Also please remember I have only been blogging for 6 months now. I am learning at such a high rate!

Oh Erica, I feel so bad for you, that is just not fair to have so much wrong with you, the arthritis is enough for anyone, let alone the chrones and everything else. I agree with everyone else, you are only one person and can only do so much, we all make mistakes and that is why we are not robots, when you think of it even computers make mistakes. You take care of yourself and your family, take a break and get better soon. Sending you cyber hugs and best wishes to get better soon.

Erica, thank you for sharing with us. Knowing all youve got going on in your life helps me see that I'm not the only one with "stuff".
Everyone did such a great job today! Emily, I'm leaving my comments here for you. Your card reminds me of the hotel I stayed at in Disney world, pop century! I love it! I graduated high school in 1987 so this is wonderful for me! Great job!
I left comments for everyone else on your blogs.
I think that you all did a great job this week and I am for one hitting my craft room hard this weekend!!
