Before Forever was created (that sounds funny), I had been using Shutterfly to store my images.

I found a lot of my photos in high resolution on my computer, but I wasn’t sure they were all there. I went to Shutterfly to order their Archive DVD. I was going to select just the best, but that was a lot of work, so I decided to select all the albums and all the photos.
I thought it was going to be a little pricey per their price list:

Archive DVD pricing
Total Pictures Price
1-100 $9.99
101-500 $14.99
501-1000 $19.99
Each additional 999 pictures, now only $4.99
Shipping & handling
not included

I ordered 6680 photos to be put on DVD. I added it to the cart and the total was $9.99 before shipping. I paid $13.51 with tax and shipping. I wondered if it would arrive with all of the photos or I somehow didn’t select them all like I thought I did.

I ordered it late November 18, 2015 and it arrived in my mail box on November 25th. They mailed is UPS, but UPS handed it over to the US Post office for delivery.

Lego Friends Invitations

Inspired by this blog, I made these Lego Friends invitations for Sara’s 11th birthday party.

I used the Cricut Score and Cut features on the back side and the front side, I used the Print then Cut features.

On the back, I scored the circles on the invitation and then also cut the same sized circles out. The scoring was used so I could easily locate where to put the circles. I used foam squares to make the circles stick up a bit.

I found the Lego Friends images online somewhere.

So far, my favorite scrapbooking “Non Creative Memories” tool is the Cricut Explore! You can do so many things with it. I used it to create Sara’s Lego Friends party invitations in September. I’ll post a photo of them later this evening.

I love the print then cut feature and also the feature to use pens and the Cricut to write straight onto the paper.

As I work more on the blog, I’ll spend more time posting images of what I’m working on.
