For every 5 people signed up, I will fill this order

I LOVE to Scrapbook!!

I started with Stampin' Up! because I love using their stuff to create awesome scrapbook pages! I have set lofty goals with my boys scrapbooks and this year, I have set an even loftier goal of actually back up with my own book! What a thought, stepping outside my role of mother to scrapbook! So far, I have failed that goal! But here are some really cute pages I case'd with the Confetti kit! I teach a scrapbook class every month and put myself to the challenge of seeing how many pages I can put together with each kit I feature. My participants get to take away my written instructions (with pictorials) plus the kit and any embellishments I feature each month all for $40. If you should see any kits here that you love and would like to purchase, please don't hesitate! This was my February class - there are a total of 14 pages I created, but I'm only showcasing some of my fave's!! Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Wheelin' Samples as Promised!

Alright, I didn't have time to create any new cards to show you my Spring Wheelin' skills, but here are a couple I made in the wintery cold days... So glad those days are behind us and the sunshine is ahead!! Full sun ahead! These cards were both ideas off of other people! I really like the look of each!
Wheels are also great to use in your scrapbook pages as border creators. They are an inexpensive and versatile tool in your crafting room! People also use them to create borders in their rooms, so the sky is the limit!

Day One on my Blog - How Exciting

Hi all! Here I am entering the world of blog's! I think it's an important thing for me to do, as I have been thinking about it for quite some time! Here in this space, my very own, I am hoping to share with you on many different grounds. I will share my creative creations, my upcoming classes, any Stampin' Up! monthly specials, and so much more. I am also hoping to use this outlet as a medium to share motivational thoughts as I find the ones that move me. Today's thought of the day, I just HAVE to share with all my sisters out there. I read it off of a Starbucks cup and I didn't keep it, so I am paraphrasing it and can't recall the person who was quoted, but it said "There is a special place in hell for women who don't help other women"!!! LOVE IT!!! This speaks so loudly to the other aspect of my blog. I am hoping to share with you the inner ticking in my head - I know scary! But at the very least, it can be entertaining! As I stumble through my life trying to prioritize and not spread myself too thin, I will share my trials with all of you. If I can help one person out in a small little way, then my goal of blogging has been achieved!!! Enjoy, save my blog in your favourites, and check back frequently! :):)
