MCT April Release Sneak Peeks Day 1 ~ you're my hero!


Happy Monday and welcome to Day 1 of  My Creative Time's April Release Sneak Peeks!  I can hardly believe it's already April and a new release!  This release has more "go to" shapes along with some fun and fabulous images and sentiments!  Today we are featuring You’re My Hero Stamp set and Bunch of Stitched Stars dies!

I created a layout for my husband's last day of work before his retirement and a retirement party for him and two of his friends.  The three of them worked together over 25 years at two different departments.  Oh and all three failed at retirement and now work together for another company, a civilian job.
 

I've left some blank squares for jounaling :) my least favorite part!

What an awesome layout!
It's probably a good thing that your
husband found another job. Sometimes,
retirement isn't good for people who
like to stay busy.

Brigit said...

How perfect is this stamp set and dies for that layout, nicely done!!
