Christmas Card

Hey all and happy weekend!!

So last weekend I attended my monthly stampers meeting and this BEAUTIFUL make and take is what we made. DON'T YOU JUST LOVE LOVE IT??? I do. Who would have thought to put those colours together? Not me. I can assure you that I will be in the future!
Thanks goes out to my sister in law Renee Ballard who is also a SU demo for creating this wonderful creation!! Love it!!

The stamp set and punch used to make this card is in SU's current holiday mini catalogue.

Take care and thanks for popping by.

Hey everyone:

Well, before we know it Christmas will be here. Can you even believe it!!?? I am a Christmas NUT so I love participating in Christmas swaps. This was my swap card that I created for a swap I was in with my friends in our Simply Stars group (Heather Summers downline group). Everyone did so well....I LOVE swapping with these ladies!!! We are doing it again in Oct so be sure to be on the look out for that card.

It's been a great day. There is a local annual fair here that I used to go to as a child. Toady after about 15 years my husband and I took our girls there. What a wonderful day it was. They loved it and it brought back many memories for me. I'm exhausted so night night.

Thanks so much for visiting today.

Happy Anniversary!!

Hey all!!

Well today is a special day for me. My hubby Paul and I celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary!!! WOW. I remember our wedding day like it was yesterday and much has happened in 8 years. New home, new puppy, new cars, 2 beautiful girls.....the list goes on and on!! I am so grateful to have my dear Paul in my life. Love you honey!!
So of course he would expect a home made card from me and of course life is sooooo super busy that I feel I don't have time to stamp for fun BUT just stamp for clubs and classes (unfortunate I know!!) I can't NOT give him a card from me so I whipped up this little ditty in NO TIME!!! I used the new CUTE CUTE level one hostess set and finally I broke open my Soft Suede paper!! LOVE IT! I even broke out the Crystal Effects for him too. Now that's LOVE!! LOL.
Well I hope he likes it. He will get it tomorrow night when we go out for dinner.

Take care all and enjoy your week.

Guest Book Kit

HEY Ladies:

So I have a monthly scrappin' club that I just LOOOOOVE!!! We have so much fun and everyone is so into their creations. This month we are getting together in a weeks time so I thought I'd post something we will be making. The kit Guest Book is completely intended for scrapping a wedding BUT I only scrap my kids lives SO I had to be a little creative and switch it up a bit. On one of the convention boards I saw a beautiful winter layout using SU's Snowflake #2 die (Pg 202 of the IBC). To whom ever created such a beautiful layout, it was my inspiration!! I obviously have yet to add pictures BUT once the snow hits (which I hear we will get hit hard this year) I will then add my pics! I think that black and white winter shots would really look nice. It's such a simple layout and wintry isn't it? I hope you like it!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Kiddies are back to school next week so I wish you all a happy labour day weekend.

Take care.
Paula :)
