Stamp Camp

Last week I had the opportunity to attend a Stampin Up stamp camp hosted by Wendy Rust. I used to go to these all of the time, but since I have gone back to work I just havent been able to. I really enjoyed myself and loved the projects that Wendy had for us. So I wanted to share with you what we did. I am most certainly going to try and attend these more often.

I hope you enjoy and BIG hugs to you all!

I wanted to share with you some other Valentine cards. The first one was made by a friend of mine for her boyfriend and the other two were cards I received in the mail. I love getting this kind of mail.

This was made by my friend Jessical McNeil.

I got this card from my long time friend Christa Beard.

This one I got from a newer friend of mine, Dana Creech.

I hope you enjoy seeing my wonderful treats that I received for Valentines.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentines and BIG hugs to you all!

Serenity Layout

My husband took this picture during one of our cruises. He loves to take photographs of sunrises and sunsets and he really does a good job. This photo was so beautiful I did not want to take away from it. I kept my layout very simple, yet elegant.

The background paper I chose, was paper that I have had forever it seems. Don't you just love when you can use something that you've had for a long time.

Hope you have a wonderful day and BIG hugs to you all.

Valentine Project

I bought these clear heart ornaments after Christmas where I only paid 1/2 for these. I saw this done last year and knew I wanted to make these for my small tree that I decorate for different holidays. I used Glitter-It by Beacon for my glue, but have been told you can also use Pledge Floor Wax. I then used Red Glitter from Recollections and ribbon from my stash.

Photo Christmas Cards

Do you ever wonder what to do with those Photo Christmas Cards you receive every year??? Why not place them into your scrapbooks. It's fun to go back from year to year and see how the kids have grown and how the family changes. I started doing this a couple of years ago, to me it's the perfect solution.

More Scrapbook Layouts

I want to continue to share with you my layouts from my Alaska cruise back in May of last year. I know, I know, it just keeps going and going. Let's face it, I don't work on layouts unless I'm at a crop and we did not have crops October-December. We just picked back up in January and got another one in about a week. I so look forward to my crops just so I can get on the ball with my layouts. Anyway, please enjoy my trip along with me.

Just A Little Somein, Somein I Made

I had a friend over about a week ago so she could work on a special project she is making for her little boy. While she was working on her thing, I had a hankering to use my Cinch. So, I made me this cute little memo pad to keep in my purse. I used scraps of paper and embellishments that I already had and some scrap ribbon. It is so cute and have had several people ask me to make one for them. Now how fun is that?
