Bone Yard

Boneyard.  Thank you and your are welcome Amy. 
Congratulations Minicooper on your new grandchild! Nothing better in the world than sitting in a rocking chair with a baby in your arms!

I was so touched by a thank you note left anonymously. She scrapbooks while doing her chemo. What a positive thing to being doing. I said a prayer for you and hope you are well soon.

And Deanna the men in blue are in progress (they wear green here).

I'll probably load the template for the bingo cards, so you all can have them for everyday use. I was playing around trying to improve my grunge skills. Jackson thinks all the scary stuff for Halloween is kind of cool. So I have the more playful kit now and than the scary (?) kit next. Have fun.

And the Alpha

Bingo Alpha.  Only includes the capitals.  I set the preview on one of the cards so that you can see it well.  After you have your layout finished then you can resize them  if you wish.  They have a small hole in the top of them so they can also dangle anywhere on the page.  I used a staple in the preview, and it is included.

Halloween Cards and Tags

 Halloween Cards and Tags.  Thanks for the information.  Our friend from the Black Forest asked about the Dalmatians and we have a more official answer.....
  Dalmatians were used to chase rats out of the fire stations and horse stables of London. They were trained to escort the fire engine, to protect the horses from stray dogs and other animals. Also the distinctive spots of the Dalmatian made it easy for the horses to distinguish from other dogs. Dalmatians had a "natural calming effect on horses." The dogs escorted the horse-drawn carriage in order to quiet the horses. Once on the scene, however, the dog had other duties as well, including safeguarding the fire equipment from vandalism and theft.

Its always fun to learn where these customs originate, and really how long they have been going on.  Thanks for letting us know.  Also, I didn't have trouble with that download, try again, sorry.  We are out of bandwidth, so I shut it off until the 1st of the month.
