Hitting the Streets: Colors #2 Round-up

This week for our HtS (Hitting the Streets) Color #2 Challenge, we decided to make a giftcard/picture holder. The outside is the decoration and the inside holds the giftcard or pic. Ours held one of our school pictures. The Autumn colors created more of a back to school theme. Also, along with the burnt orange, chocolate brown, and creamy white that we were supposed to use, we added a little splash of silver! Hope you like it:


Sorry some of the pictures are kind of blurry. That's what happens when you have a 3 mega pixel camera! Yeah, it's old and worth close to nothing, but it's all we've got for now. But not to worry much longer. We're getting a new one soon! (7 mega pixels)

        Summer Scrapbooking

        One day we were sitting at Blair's scrapbooking table making a page for her summer scrapbook. We found pictures of her flipping at the Lake (lake of the ozarks that is)! Blair made most of it and Carly gave her ideas. Here's how it turned out...

        Our Very First Post!!!

        This is our first post on our very first blog: Taxi Cab. You all are probably wondering why we named it Taxi Cab and we will tell you right now. We wanted to name the blog C.A.B. because it's the initials for Carly and Blair. However, Blogger wouldn't let us name it that short. And the first thing that came to our mind when we said "cab" was a taxi cab so that's why our awesome blog is named: Taxi Cab!
