City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 172 ~ Count your blessing!

I am hosting City Crafter Challenge Blog this week.

The theme is

Count Your Blessing

Here's my project



I made this album for my brother-in-law Dan when he and Marilyn came to Vegas for a visit early this year.



we took them to Red Rock Canyon



when I make mini album, I like to leave some space for journaling, that way, the recipient could jot down their thoughts on these pages.



Dan asked about the plants while we were at Red Rock Canyon, so I did a little research for him



Marilyn loves to play bingo, I hope she likes this page






I hope you come play along with us




We have a special guest star for the month of August at CCCB. She is my wonderful blog friend Sue Lelli, stop by Sue's blog to say hello, I know she will be happy to see you there!





Movie Night

We went to the movie over the weekends, it was a cute one, hubby liked it and laughed non stop, I was so tired after all those traveling and fell asleep halfway, LOL, that's me!
