Bella Card


I hope that everyone has had a wonderful weekend. I got a chance to scrapbook yesterday and actually got 5 pages done. I have not had a chance to take pictures of any of those layouts but I did make a birthday card for a gal at work. She was on vacation when her birthday so I had a little bit of time to make her card. I am never sure what to make for someone at work, but I remembered that some crazy person gave me this bella stamp. I just love it and it is perfect for my co-worker. I used white cardstock for the actual card, making memories blue paper with the cuttlebug swiss dots folder and a scrap of patterned paper. I colored the bella with watercolor pencils and the dove blender. I hope everyone has a great week and just remember that it is only a four day work week. Thanks for stopping by.

I know I am a total slacker. I plan to do some updating on my blog this week. I have gotten a few pages done recently and I am working on a Travel word class that I will be teaching at Scrapbook Garden next month. Please check in later in the week for more updates. I promise not to be such a slacker in the future. Thanks for checking in.

90 Years Old

Well, it has been forever since I have last written. I am sorry that it has been so long. I have spent the better part of May out of town. I went out of town for my full time job and then went to St. Louis to visit family. My grandfather turned 90 last Friday. Most of the family was able to get together to celebrate. I enjoyed the time with my real dad, grandfather, and the rest of the family that was able to get together.

My grandfather is one very special man. His mind is so sharp and he tells such wonderful stories. On Thursday evening his church and the seminary that he used to teach at threw him a birthday party. They really spent quite a bit of time planning the party and it was wonderful that we were able to join the fun. There were about 40 people in attendance and it was really neat to see how he has touched so many people's lives over the years.

Thanks for peeking in. I did get a little bit of scrapbooking in while I was gone and I will post some of those pictures later this week as well as a class that I am teaching later this month at Scrapbook Garden East. Have a great rest of the week.
