G1109 Workshops Your Way™ Calypso Scrapbooking Kit
The Calypso Workshop Your Way is incredible. I was able to put together 4, 2 page layouts and make 9 total cards (3 each of 3 designs) just by adding ink pads, a stamp set and a card and envelope value pack. Directions for the workshop is available to download directly off the website. Below are the samples of what I made using the Workshop Your Way.

Now, I didn't follow the directions exactly. I spiced it up a bit. It was lovely to get these pictures from 1998 scrapbooked. In 1998 my daughter was 2 years old and she's now 20 so I'm WAY behind to say the least! Harvey the Flamingo is stinkin' cute. Doesn't he look like a Harvey?

These next set of layouts are pictures taken from 1997 and are a skinny version of me. I worked so hard to loose my pregnancy weight and as a treat I went on a end of the summer trip to the beach in Rhoad Island. It was a quick trip but oh so wonderful.

and here are the three designs of cards that I was able to make from the Workshop Your Way. Now the workshop called for the stamp set One in a Melon C1650 but I used Tickled Pink C1651 because I fell in love with Harvey and had to use him in these cards. So I spiced things up a bit in true "Nina" fashion.
