My Final Layout of 2009 ... Welcome 2010!

Well, I'm going to end the evening with laughter and smiles. This layout is called "smiles".

Nighers all! Sweet Dreams and Happy New Year!!!

Couldn't Resist ...

Sometimes you just see a picture and the heading is obvious. This is a push button ordering podium and I was trying to conquer it when someone called my name. The picture says it all!

If you can't laugh at yourself then life just isn't much fun! Heehee!

Another SDV 2009 Day 3 ...

I'm so new to all of this so I don't know whether to edit my last post or to post again ... even if it is the same day. If I'm doing a major "blog no-no" then please let me know.

Anyway, I just finished another layout. I loved doing this one because it shows the wonderful friends I have made at the SDV in Orlando through the years.

Thanks ladies ... I look forward to 2010!

SDV 2009 ... Day Three ... I'm on a roll .........

For some reason, there are so many great pictures and moments from this day so I'll be posting a few more layouts for Day 3 after this. Enjoy Sissy!

Heehee ... this is getting to be alot of fun. I've already got the next layout in my head ... will post soon. :)

Getting Ready for the New Year!

Well, as I'm battling another sinus infection, I'm also playing with my Christmas gift. My sweetie bought me a new computer with a 24" screen and I'm having a blast playing with graphics. On my old laptop I would run out of memory practically as soon as I signed on ... ha!

Isn't she lovely! Okay, I really need sleep now ... until later ...

Another Tilda Christmas Card ...

I'm trying to keep the cards minimalistic. I always tend to embellish ALOT so this is different for me. I do like the simple & clean look though.

I just love my Tilda stamps by Magnolia. My Christmas "girls" just came in and I'm having fun playing with them.

A few Spellbinders some coloring with my Copics, add flower soft, stickles & liquid pearls and viola' we're done!

SDV Fun ...

Okay, so I know that I'm supposed to be working on Christmas gifts, but I ran across some of the pictures from this years SDV in Florida. I just felt that I had to digitally scrap some of them. Enjoy!

December Class Project

I have finally quit changing next month's project for Jane's December crop. I had so much fun designing all the little spaces on this explosion box. The Christmas tree in the middle is 3D and sits on a woven "rug" of paper, we also will do a mini book on one of the spaces, there is a recipe holder (with some delicious recipes included), and well you get the picture ... lots of fun. I totally scraplifted the paper bow you will be making, but can't remember where I got it to give the credit to ... sorry. I will be teaching the Explosion Box & Bow at the crop on December 4th. You can go over to Jane's blog to sign up if you are coming to the December crop. If it is not posted yet she should have it posted soon.

Thanks for looking and have a Happy Thanksgiving! :)

First Chrismas Gift Finished

Finished one Christmas Gift:

Now I'm going to start on my brother & sister-in-law's VEGAS wordbook ... so it's off to the Cricut.

Thanks for looking! :)

Getting Back to Normal

I had a wonderful time this last weekend at the monthly crop.  I was teaching a class making Christmas cards and had so much fun. Then just spending two days scrapping with my friends ... especially my table buddy Robyn. Today met some friends at Craftiques Mall to check out The Scrapbooking Factory booth. Took some pictures:

Come on by and visit at Lockhill Selma & NW Military.

I Had a Wonderful Day!

What a fun day!! I went to see Jane's new booth over at the Craftique Mall on NW Military & Locke Hill Selma. If you are in the area you will love checking her booth out. I'm just upset that I didn't have my camera with me ... LOL ... I was just so excited about finally getting out and about after spending weeks sick. Next time I'm there I'll post a picture of her booth.

Do y'all ever feel like you have soooo many ideas running around in your head that you can't settle on just one? I'm starting my Christmas gifts (about a month earlier than I usually do) and trying to get down on paper what I'm making for each person ... then I drift off to my happy creative place and it goes on and on. Kind of like Doug, the dog, in the movie UP who gets distracted so easily ... SQUIRREL! You'll understand that if you saw the movie. Too funny!

Well, I'm off to figure things out and get those gifts started ... I'll post my gifts as I finish them ... well the ones I can since some read my blog and I'm not letting them get an early peek. :o)

I'm Finally Back!

I'm finally up and about now! Gee, it's only been about six weeks of coughing ... then pulling a muscle in my chest from coughing. I know, you haven't heard of that happening ... it does ... OUCH!

I've been having fun getting the Christmas cards together for the class I'm teaching at The Scrapbooking Factory (Jane's on-line store). These cards are so easy & fun to make. I got the card ideas from a class I took in Houston. Can you say "stinkin' cute".

My Boo Book Acrylic Album class went great!

This was the first class I have taught for Jane at The Scrapbooking Factory and I couldn't of had a more wonderful group of women.

I had so much fun with this project and loved sharing it with these ladies. Y'all were a hoot!!!
Here they are with their finished albums!

Now I'm off to work on next month's class ... will have that here soon. Thanks for looking!

Working on Unfinished Projects ... During Down Time :)

Well, it seems as though I was meant to spend the month of October getting over a sinus infection &  bronchitis. I'm finally feeling a bit like myself again so I thought I would put some finishing touches on some of my projects that have been waiting patiently to be finished.

I made this Disney "Mickey Parts" word book some time ago with my Cricut using the George & the Mickey & Friends cartridges. Every year I go to the Dream Events SDV in Orlando so I used this word book to remember last year's SDV event.

This event is ALWAYS so much fun ... can't wait for next year... now I just have to get this year's put together. :)

On to my next project.
