Weekend Retreat Projects

Last weekend my daughter and I attended the Sunshine Scrapbook Retreat held Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Sandcastle Hotel in Virginia Beach and got lots of projects done. This photo is of  my granddaughter  and we are most proud of her accomplishments as a first time member of the Colony Cuda swim team.
These two pages were taken several years ago on the day she learned to ride without training wheels. I  love the one of Granddaddy letting go!!

Until today, most of my postings have been of cards. I love creating cards but I also love to scrapbook and  try my hand at any crafty idea that comes along. Below is an idea I saw at a craft show last month.  I covered a small Pringle can with scrap holiday paper and the lid cover cut with a 3" scalloped  punch. The Poinsettia is made from paper using the Paper Blossom punches.  While the flowers are a bit time consuming to make, I hope you will agree it is well worth the effort.  The sentiment tag is computer generated.

I am making 20 of these to fill with candy and give to the ladies in my social club at our Christmas party.
The larger size Pringle can decorated this way would be ideal to fill with homemade cookies or fudge for a hostess or teacher gift.
