Hi Crafters,

I was so lucky to be chosen as a hostess for a Shutterfly party (through HouseParty this weekend.  My parents let me use their house.  We had a bunch of ladies over and we made 8x8 books.  Everyone that came got a free 8x8 code as well as 12 free stationary cards. Shutterfly has very reasonable prices and wonderful products.  They often run discounts and coupon codes.  I order most of my pictures through them and have always been impressed with the quality of the photos and the photobooks.

I always have to find a way to incorporate my love of paper crafting and this is how I did it.  I used Plantan Schoolbook end cap features to make tags for everyone's reusable shopping bags.  These were cut at 2.25 inches with tag feature.
You can see all my photobooks and a few of the tags.  I do like free stuff and they sure sent some goodies!
A few of the ladies hard at work!
Little Penelope Jane even got in on some photo book action.  She'll be a crafter in no time!  She can even multitask...napping and creating at the same time! I'm so impressed.

Happy Crafting,
