I can't believe I forgot to post this great lighthouse. I used an svg file from SVGcuts.com and some scrapbook paper I had that had Maine written across it in different fonts. I gave this to my daughter for her birthday. She is finally getting to go to Maine with me this summer and I am so excited to be able to spend some time with her there. This lighthouse is really great in that it has a tea light at the top to make it really look light a light house and it comes apart toward the bottom. It makes a hollow shape and I put some "lobster" money in there for her.

I just loved the flamingos and the look of this cute vintage travel trailer.
Here's a card I made for my daughter's coworker to give to her daughter. She is in the 2nd grade and trying out for cheerleader so I sent her this card of encouragement. I used Create A Friend for all the images except for Varsity Letter (for the "R" on her shirt. The paper was from an old 4 x 6 paper pad that was in my stash
