After the weekend was over we consolidated all our photos and made them up into a little movie for all the ladies to keep . This year we decided to decorate boxes for them to store their CDs.  I have used CD boxes from Blue Edge Crafts, covered them with patterned paper and added old CDs and alphas.








Thank you for visiting my blog.  I will be back next week with some  more photos from our weekend.
