Thomas the Tank Engine Day....

For all of you that have kids that love Thomas and 
all his special friends on the Railway lines 
are going to love this book that our 
Guest Designer Mireille Divjak made special for us with our
 I love America Collection.  She is from Holland so since
they don't have independence day the patriotic papers
went perfect to create this mini book for the very special and
most wonderful day her son and bff had with
 Thomas the Tank Engine...  

"Thomas the Train" by Mireille Divjak

June second this year Noah and I went to the Railway Museum in Utrecht.
They  had a very special Thomas the Train Event there.

 It was very special getting "the real Thomas Train" over from the UK ..
and having Douglas and Hiro and Emily there too.

Noah and his BFF Alex enjoyed a day filled with trains..

The even participated in a Guiness book of records

Ocean Themed

Today's sample creation is a ocean color pallet wedding invitation. 

Here we used our Glitter Card Stock in Prussian Blue(GCS019). We contrasted with a beige sandy color card stock.  We added a mesh white flower with a pearl embellishment to the main invitation and pearls to the rest of the cards. 
For the belly band we used the same color sandy card stock and used our Bakers Twine in Light Sea Green (BT004). We also did a envelope slip with a teal ribbon around to finish the look.

All this was glued using our Glue Tape in Permanent(GT001).
