Thank you to all who took last night's Cricut Class

I want to take a minute this morning and thank each and every one of you who took the Cricut class last night. I had a great time with all of you! I hope all of you who have a cricut, will take it out this week and have some fun with it. It really is a marvelous machine! Any of you who want to try it again, let me know on my blog here, and I would love to bring my machine back to the store and play some more!

Please, take time to post a message on the blog to let me know what you thought of the class. I am always striving to make my classes better, so your input is important to me! I will hold a drawing for those of you who post an opinion and one lucky winner will win a prize! So please let me know what you think!

I am posting the pictures of our projects so that you may copy them if you would like! Once again, thank you all for coming to the class and I hope to see you all soon!

Wow! I finally got to play!

I decided to spend some time last night scrapping for fun! (Imagine that!!!) I had a blast. My challenge was to Scraplift a friend of mine, the amazing Laura Fiore. I wanted to do a layout that told the story of Heidi getting stranded at home for two days when she was on her way back to school in Spokane. She had the choice of going ahead and flying on to Denver and sleeping in the Denver airport for 2 days before there would be an available flight, or adding another stop in Seattle and leaving from home in two days. Of course she opted for the latter. It was rough being 2 days late for Jan term- like missing 2 weeks of school, but she caught up and all was well. What a fun story to tell after the fact!!!

I also finished a card for the CPS sketch and I will post it in the next couple of days!

Scripture Challenge #4

I am somewhat behind in posting for this challenge, but I am going to keep plugging away. Life just so gets in the way!!! I am learning though, to put those things more important than sitting on this computer, first. I will always be able to post, but my family is growing and changing and I need to treasure the time I have now.
The word for challenge #4 is wait. I decided to use the verse,

We wait for hope in the Lord. He is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his Holy Name. Ps. 33:20-21

My sweet daughter is struggling some away at school and I wanted to do a layout to encourage her. So this one is for you Heidi! He is always there....even if it seems otherwise and He cares for you!!! I love you!!

LRS February Kit Designs

The February LittleRedScrapbook kit is one of my favorites! I had so much fun designing with the Webster's Pages patterned paper! The ribbons, flowers and jewels were an added bonus. If you haven't checked out February's kit yet, stop on by LRS and do so. You won't be dissappointed!

Another fun sketch from CPS. I decided to go for the shabby look and distressed all the edges.

I used Collage Press and Seven Gypsies patterned paper, Making Memories brads, and Foofala buttons.

LRS February Kit

I wanted to post the beautiful February kit from LittleRedScrapbook. I have had a blast making my layouts and projects from this kit. The embellies are way fun and the patterned papers from Webster's Pages are so pretty. I also love the stamps from October Afternoon. All in all, this kit is absolutely beautiful! Hopefully I will be able to post some sneak peeks of my designs in the next couple of days!

A Very Good Cause

As you may know one of my very favorite scrappbooking sites is Studio Calico . The SC community is very talented, giving, and a downright fun bunch of gals. One of SC's DT members, KirstyWiseman is extemely talented and quite funny too. If you would care to take a moment of your time and view the above video, Kirsty's daughter is on a special mission to raise money to see a specialist in the States. I would appreciate it and I know the Wiseman family would be forever grateful!!
