My sister had decorated a gingerbread house (see above) and she brought it along. It was a 'winner' with the kids.
These are bright and fun scrapbook pages. I was inspired to make freehand scallop borders to represent the kids eating their way through the lollies (I am sure that they were not all that impressed with the gingerbread).
Enjoy - oops sorry you can't as it all went rather quickly.

One of the first things I noticed on my very first visit, many years ago, to the United States was the mailbox system. Householders work out how much the postage is going to be. No going to the post office or a post box to post your mail, simply put it into your mailbox, raise the flag to let the mail collector know you have mail to be collected. If they have mail for you they will put the flag back up - that way you know you have mail.
I first saw the mailbox template in a scrapbook magazine sometime ago, cut it out planning to use it - sorry I do not remember the magazine. It was supposed to be enlarged another 50% but I like it as a smaller version. I cut a small piece of paper and using my scissors created a little bit of grass at the bottom of the mailbox. Are you like me - do you have loads of paper in your stash - so when looking for cardstock to use I came across this great cardstock that has been hiding for a few years - loved the numbers and it just seemed right.
These are the letter boxes (sorry mailboxes) at my friends homes in Kentucky, Missouri (2) and Denver.
Off to check my mailbox - sorry letter box!!!!

I have kept this scrapbook page really simple, as those Longhorns are the stars. I had taken a photo of a notice in the shop telling everyone about the drive down the street, so I cut up this photo and used in in the journalling. A little bit of twine, a few brads, torn edges and daubing of ink around edges completes the journalling box. Yeh ha!!!
