WISH YOU WERE HERE PREVIEW 1


I made a set of four different placemats
with a matching coaster. This set is in 300DPI.
The placemats are 10.5" x 8"';
and the coaster is 4" circle.

The elements I used for these printables are all made
by Paulette at Create with TLC. You will see her goodies
available with the train when it departs on July 12th.


I am in the process of making more for this
set so you can use it as a BONVOYAGE PARTY
THEME or AROUND THE WORLD THEME
table setting. Can't wait to see what everyone
is creating for this train! SUCH FUN!!!

A FRIEND INDEED

This is a tribute to those we trust with our
hopes, secrets and dreams.


We discovered in each other and ourselves
worlds, galaxies, a universe.
--Anne Rivers Siddons

Friends are God's apology for relations.
--Hugh Kingsmill

A real friend is one who walks in
when the rest of the world walks out.
--Walter Winchell

Some peoople go to priests;
others to poetry;
I to my friends.
--Virginia Woolf

I can trust my friends.
These people force me to examine,
encourage me to grow.
--Cher

Love is only chatter,
Friends are all that matter.
--Gelett Burgess

The more we love our friends,
the less we flatter them.
--Moliere

When friends ask for a second up,
they are open to conversation.
--Gail Parent

The best mirror is an old friend.
--George Herbert

Silences make the real
conversations between friends.
--Margaret Lee Runbeck

Love is blind;
friendship closes its eyes.
--Anonymous

Familiarity breeds content.
--Anna Quindlen

COLORS OF FRIENDSHIP



White is pure, honesty held true
Blue brings solitude;
Time to look within.

Yellow brings me
warmth to care

Orange holds sorrows,
old and new

Teal gives me
laughter and joy
to share

Red beats with the
heart of friends

Purple holds loyalties
that know not time

Green keeps
jealousy and envy
all in check

My heart beats of many colors
Strengthened by friends
that share the memories
YOU have helped color my world.

PROJECT: JOY JAR

JOY JAR...

this can be a service project, gift for charity, gift for family or friend...

Spread a little joy around you. A JOY JAR, which holds a daily inspirational message, will keep giving and giving!

Type 365 or 31 inspirational messages, depending on if you want your JOY JAR to last for a full year or a full month. These can be Scripture verses, inspirational thoughts, or smile provokers. You can find these on inspirational calendars, topical books, joke books, or make up your own. Print these on different colored sheets of paper, then cut into strips. Fold each strip into a small piece with the message inside. Place in a decorated glass jar. Attach a note that says:

It is hoped this JOY JAR will help you start each day with a spiritual boost, and inspirational thought, or a smile. As the year/month progresses, may your days be bright and full of JOY.

Give this to secret pals, shut-ins, special friends, or anyone you can use a boost each day.

LIFE IS A BANQUET TRAIN DEPARTS...ALL ABOARD!!!

know
if you like or what you like so I can
fine-tune my
cargo on future train rides.

The download link for each preview
follows
each preview....

Don't forget to check back to the main

loading dock for this journey for a TON
of
great freebies as well as each depot along

so give everyone
time to upload their cargo

I should make note for you, as I did in one of my first
posts about this train's cargo. My recipe card templates
and now finished pages I'm sharing are sized and made
to be used in one of those 4x6 photo sized albums you
can get at discount stores and sometimes the dollar
stores even. The cover is a bit larger than the actual
pages so the one blank template is only good for you to
use to design your cover/back pages not the actual
recipe pages. If you have any questions or concerns,
don't hesitate to contact me. THANK YOU!

SMUGGLES,
RhondaSue
PS... Look on my side bar to the right
for the
subject of LIFE IS A BANQUET

LIFE IS A BANQUET comments


This train leaves the Depot on June 14th.
Please be sure to check back there often for
freebies and updates.

I have a few more templates that will only
be available with the download from the train.

At that time, the ones I just posted to download
by right clicking and opening in a larger screen
will be deleted from here and you'll have to go
back to snagging them in the zips. So you only
have a few days to get them this way.

There are some real exciting previews and freebies
to be snagged at the Depot! Have fun everyone!
