I Guess I'll be saying Goodbye...

Stampin' Up has put some ultimatums on us demonstrators...although I understand why they are doing it, I also feel conflicted about it...as you can tell, I'm a "hobbiest"! I will continue to be a demonstrator, but I will no longer be doing my blog. I have several friends who may not just use Stampin' Up so I can't even link to them....so I will neither promote Stampin' Up! nor will I promote anyone else...that's fair right? So goodbye blog world...it was good while it lasted!

September's Scrap Class...


Yup! It was a 2 pager...I thought since there weren't many people who were going to come...I would bless those that did...it took us a while, so I probably won't be able to do many 2 pagers...unless the layout is simpler...For this project we used...Circle Scissors, My Way Arrow Punch, Curves ahead? die, Good morning sunshine designer paper (retired), 2-chocolate chip 12x12, clear button and corduroy button (retired)...

A little note of thanks


I made this card (times 4) for the girls that gave me birthday presents...ashamedly, it's over a month late...Love you girls, tho!

I used an embossing folder and just pimped out the flowers with micro beads and Crystal effects...I used the oval scallop punch and the medium sized oval punch for the sentiments...and ribbon punch. Hope you likey!!!

We have had Bryan for 2 months now and he truly feels like he's been here all along! I love how God works things out like that! Hope he has an awesome day and God gives him a special blessing!

4th Scrappin' Class and now here's Clyde...



This is my 4th scrap class page and the girls had fun!!! I love this stamp set...SU! Branch Out, which is retired...it didn't last long in the catalog. We used a lot of heat embossing!

For those of you that have come here before and are wondering wuz up???? Well, did I tell you I had another son? He's great and he is turning 15 in 2 days! We have been sooo busy this summer. In the last few weekends we have been camping (which involved a monsoon) and went to Gatlinburg. Trying to get a little fun in before school...Hope you all had a good one! The adoption is going well and should be done soon...we are allowed to make most of the decisions regarding Clyde so I thought I'd let you see him! He's grown up so much since we have had him!

3rd Scrappin' Class...



Well, this month went a whole lot better than last month! We will see what happens next month...I used a sketch from a scrap mag...not sure which one...either Scrapbooks Etc. or Creative Keepsakes? Obviously, the theme was red, white and blue. One girl was smart, she didn't have that exact theme so she brought "Girls" printed out, instead of using my "July", but she used the happy stamp so it read "happy girls"! I thought she was clever for thinking ahead! Now, to think of one for next month??? Any ideas for a theme? I have been wanting to do the 4 seasons, so I may do that! But please give some ideas...

My first challenge with...



Card Patterns

I had some fun with this sketch! I have a few friends that have birthdays coming up so I took the opportunity!

Tools: Heat gun, eyelet punch, Pixie sewing machine, Cuttlebug w/ Swiss dots
Accessories: Organza ribbon, buttons, embroidery thread
Stamps: Crazy for cupcakes

I used the buttons because evidently I'm not a good sower...:(...tried to make my goof ups not sew bad...ha! Ha! Get it...not SEW bad.

How ya'll doin?

This is my first night where I'm actually bored! I'm tired, but bored...Mark's asleep on the couch along with Jake...Mollie's on the floor, sleeping...not sure where Bryan is in the house...probably on the phone talking to his girlfriend...Clyde's asleep...think I should get a clue and go to sleep? Hope you all are doing good! I really need to do something creative! I just got a load of stuff from Stampin' Up! I should have used my time wisely and made a card...there are a few birthday's coming up soon! Maybe I could do a challenge too...it's been a long time.
