Scrapbook expo, Anaheim

Becky and I made our way from San Diego to Anaheim to shop till we dropped today at the Scrapbook Expo. We found some really good deals. My favorite part was when we stopped by "The Stamps of Life" booth. Stephanie and her husband are the nicest people. She is exactly the same in person as she is in her videos. She is the sweetest person, they both are. I bought too many stamp sets today. There were some really good deals. By the time I got home and took all my stuff out to look at again, my head was spinning. Oh my, where to start. Then I got tired and had to go lay down and take a nap, haha. After my nap I was able to focus again and I made a couple of cards. What a fun day. I hope everyone else had a terrific day, God bless.

It's Thursday again, go figure...

It has been an interesting week. Monday and Tuesday we had off from work, bummer though, no work no pay so you really can't enjoy it. Then to top it all off I was not feeling my best. I was feeling the exact same way I felt a year ago and ended up in the hospital. I have a mind over matter thing going, I can't afford to be sick, so it don't matter! I am feeling some what better today. It's just our crazy weather here. 80 degrees during the day and mid 40's at night. I am okay unless I go out at night.
Back on to more fun stuff. I am on a mission to have one of my cards published in a magazine. I see what is out there and say "I can do that!" I really like the Cricut magazine and they are having a call out. Is that what they call it? I made a card tonight but not for that. I made it just to do it, because I haven't felt good enough to be at my work table.
 I stamped the butterflies on some scrap patterned paper. The oval is from a stamp set from Stamps of Life, it's an outline of a tree. Again stamped on scrap paper from my stash. I then cut and embossed the background on my cuttlebug. Taped the butterflies to the oval and applied pearls. Cut and tied ribbon to the front panel, stamped birthday sentiment and mounted on green scrap paper. I used my ATG to mount panel to front of the card. You can't see it, but inside I used some more scrap paper that matches the oval and a piece of white card stock to the inside. Done! I am really trying to use up some of my scraps. I am doing a pretty good job so far. Have a great Friday!

Scrappin' For Kenzie: Cards For Emily

Scrappin' For Kenzie: Cards For Emily

it's Thursday...

It's Thursday, it's Thursday...yeah it's Thursday. One more day this week and then we have a four day weekend. My head is spinning I am so happy. Okay back to earth now. I was just doing one of the things I do way to much of and that's, surf the net and visit all the creative blogs that are out there. I came across one asking for cards for a dear little six year old who has recently been diagnosed with Leukemia. I think I was able to get the link it is in the post above. Hopefully it worked because I know how important all the support a family gets the better. Her story was our families story 17 years ago. Have a great weekend and God Bless.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope everyone had a nice day. I was up late last night, as always, putting together things for work and family. I am such a goof, but I do work better under pressure. Thanks to my cricut expression it didn't take too long for some of the things I made. But I wanted to make special cards for my hubby and kids. My DH works third shift so I always put his cards on the steering wheel so he gets it first thing. He made me stop filling his car with balloons, bummer :(.  I wish I had taken some pictures last night, but by the time I got done all I wanted to was go to bed. LOL
But it was a wonderful day. I hope it was for everyone else too.

Here we go again...

Well here we go again another work week is quickly approching. At least I have a good job, stressful sometimes, but good. The only thing is it takes me way from what I really like to do, papercraft. My husband asked me to make a belated birthday card for his boss. So I need to go make one soon. I also have to put together some Valentine's day goodies for my staff and the school staff where I work. I am so happy I was able to participate in the "My Pink Stamper" Bog Hop. It was so much fun, thank you Robyn.

My Pink Stamper Blog Hop

I am attempting to get into the "My Pinkstamper Blog Hop". We were asked to make something that had red on it, had a circle and a pink ribbon. Oh and also use a cut item. I made this little valentine with the skunk from create a critter. I love this cartridge so much! Happy Valentine's Day everyone!  WooHOO!!!!! I did it! Okay other than the picture being sideways...what can I say I am still new at this. Sorry I don't own any of Robyn's stamp sets. It's not that I don't love them, it's just times have been a little tough lately. But anyway here I am! Thanks for stopping by.

sorry I am still trying to figure this all out :) anyway Happy Valentine's Day!
