Bella Cards



Well, as promised, here are a couple of cards that I started last night and took the time to finish tonight. The first one is a birthday card for my best friend. I love the birthday or party themed bellas. I used twinkling H2O's and my new nestabilities on both cards. The second card is using another bella stamp that I borrowed or a friend stamped a few of them for me while I was scrapbooking one friday night. On this card I also used flocking by doodlebug and the scalloped rectangle nestabilities. I really like these products and will be using them more in the future. Thanks for checking in on me. I am ready for Friday. I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and weekend to follow.

Wow is all I have to say for this week. Last night was my last class at Scrapbook Garden. It is amazing how I really do feel good about my decision and I feel like a ton of bricks have been lifted off of my shoulders. Tonight I worked out after work and when I called home to tell my hubby that I was on my way, he told me that he was starting dinner. Can life get any better? I really enjoyed walking into the house with dinner waiting on me. (boy am I spoiled) I hope he keeps this up even though I am not working a second job anymore. LOL! I have spent a little bit of time in my scrapbook room this evening working on some cards and boy does that feel good. I promise I will get a couple of them up tomorrow night. My next project is cleaning my craft room and get in gear catching up. I have to match my friend Toni's 50 pages since our Yoder crop. I am so jealous. I hope that you are all having a great week so far. Thanks for peeking in.

John Deere Fanatics


Chad and Zachary

Well here is a page that I just finished up using the Cricut Design Studio and the Stone Script font. I have been lazy about getting my desing studio back up and running since my computer crashed a couple of months ago. I can't believe that I have not done this sooner. I really love the design studio and I have so many pages to just add the finishing touches with this tool. I hope that everyone has had a wonderful weekend. I spent the majority of the weekend with my best friend and her children (our godson). We had a great day today, we met at our usual time and place (the Zoo) and then went to lunch. It is great to see the boys grow up and to just have fun time with them. They were running the zoo and they even had me running (LOL)!

This Tuesday is my last class at Scrapbook Garden. Wow, that is going to be hard, but it is time to move on. I look forward to teaching this week and having at least one new instructor to sit in my class. This week will be busy, but then things should slow down. I hope that everyone has a great week. Thanks for peeking in.

Family Pages



As promised earlier today, here is a new layout that I have unearthed. In getting things cleaned up I am going through all the layouts that I have completed and I am putting them in the appropriate albums. I apologize for the flashback on the pictures. I still have not figured out the best way to photograph the layouts. The pictures were taken at my Uncle's wedding in 2006. Wow, we had a wonderful time. I used Bazzil cardstock, the silver specialty paper is by Magenta. The embellishments were from making memories, prima marketing, and 7 gypsies. I did put a little bit of stickles on the flowers. Thank you for peeking in. Have a great Friday! :)

Okay I know that I have been slacking again. I promise that I will get some new pics posted tonight. I have been really interested in the Olympics so my blogging has suffered this week. I only have one more class to teach next week, so I should have more time to scrap for myself. I am enjoying it when I take the time to do it and I realize now how much I have missed working on things for myself. Thank you for checking in and I promise I will post again tonight with at least one layout done.

Yoder Retreat

One of the bedrooms for the retreat. I love the quilts!!!

Our Fun Filled Group!

Mary creating perfection!

Toni talking with her hands and telling stories.

Well, I am ready for Friday! This week seems to have gone on forever. I am working tomorrow night and doing my last Friday Night crop at store. I really can't believe that I am down to just two more classes or events at the store before I am finished. Wow what a journey. Enough about that.

I just thought that I would share a couple of pictures from our Yoder Retreat. Wow what a wonderful day and what fun. I don't think that I have laughed quite that much and also gotten so many pages done in such a long time. I can't wait until next time. Let me tell you that Janet was a wonderful hostess and really does a wonderful job with the retreat. I could just go there and hang out and do nothing.

Sedgwick County Fair

My husband goes to the Sedgwick County Fair for work and most years I will tag along or join him later. Well, now that our Godson is old enough to enjoy the time instead of just sitting in a stroller we have started taking him out to the fair. It is a blast since he is so into cows and anything john deere. Wonder where that started? Could it be that his Godfather sells John Deere. Here is a picture of the two of them after the carousel. Zachary has such a sweet little smile. I have also included a picture of Zachary with the funnel cake. How can you go to the fair and not have a funnel cake? Have a great Friday.
