Hello August

I can't believe that August is here already! What have I done this summer craft wise? Nothing! Absolutely nothing! Well, not entirely true. I have been able to keep up with my card swap group, thank goodness.

Other than that, I have been very busy with the kids, summer stuff, work and now gearing up for back to school. I am trying for a full time job and keeping my fingers crossed as it is at a local craft store and I would just love to have this job.

I owe a friend a scrapbook and it needs to be done in two weeks. I have to get it done before I start this new job (should it be offered to me - positive thinking, positive thinking) otherwise I will never get to it.

My daughter, who is 12 has decided she would like to take up cake making, decorating etc. She told me the other day that I can have her scrapbooking stuff or just get rid of it. It broke my heart. I will just have to store it away until she comes back to the craft.

Other than that, I have been watching alot of videos on cardmaking, cricut, scrapbooking and so forth. I have to stay motivated somehow right?

NSD MPS Challenge #9 - Take Shape

I made this gator card for the NSD MPS (www.mypinkstamper) challenge #9. I used the Create A Critter cartridge and my Gypsy to create the card base then added the various layers and some accents. I love how cute this turned out.

NSD MPS Challenge #1 - Mother Dear, I love you so...

I am trying to participate in a couple National Scrapbook Day challenges with Robyn over at This is my submission for challenge #1.
