Oh- and then there are new jeweled brads, they come in 2 colors of fire and ice, circles and squares. This is going to be a nice addition of "bling" to our scrapping and stamping projects! Yippy!!!!! Okay, then MORE chipboard, I mean come on, can anyone have too much chipboard? The shapes remind me of the Polke Dots & Petals set- lots of flower inside/out and big petals! You chipboarders are going to LOVE this. Then there is a new punch box, I have not seen a picture of it but it sounds cool. It is a big punch like we have but it has 3 flowers in a row and then the stamps are word stampst hat fit into the punch outs. I have not formed an opinion on this one yet- since I have not seen it. But I will fill you in as I find out more.
I know you ladies are starting to think about that new catalog...... I know I am, and this just makes it that much harder. Think about it, we got to see a couple of the new hostess sets as incentives for new demos and I LOVE them too! What is a girl to do? Stay tuned and I will give you more goodies and gossip as I hear it.
Tata for today!

We also did some other outdoor stuff like roller blading.......... yep, got a couple little rub burns but at least I did not take any spills! This was day #1 of our get healthier regime and I did really enjoy it. Although, think about this........., we ended up at the ice creamery! LOL! I just had a jr cone and it was quite refreshing. We, as a family, are going to try and do more of this stuff since we all enjoy it and know it is good for us. Plus, I need to look good in that swimsuit again!
Well with all that, no, I do not have anything to post picture wise. But I did want to stop in and share my weekend with you. I will try and get some stuff done this week and post for you avid readers (smile) and browsers. In the meantime, I hope you all have a wonderfully beautiful week!

I did it though, I signed up for some classes at the MegaMeet in May. May 12th to be exactly, you should check out the site and if you want to go then let me know. It is at the Rock Financial Place, lots of shopping, new techniques, make n takes and did I mention shopping? I love these things and I think the most favorite part is 1. all the new stuff that I get to see and 2. the $1 scrapbooking store. Come on, who can ask for more than that? Items that I buy during the year for $3-4 and now I can get them for $1! Oh, how much fun. Can't wait.
Okay, this is a card that we did at my stamping group a couple weeks ago but it is a set that I just adore and it is so sweet and simple. It is Fairytale wedding and I used my cuttlebug to emboss the white with the heart embossing plate. It is a standard size card in pretty in pink with gable green on the tab which just happens to be the word window trimmed down and brad added to it. The set also contains a cake and ring but we all decided that this set is very versatile and could be used for baptism, confirmation, and to be honest, the cake could be wedding/anniversary. So, as I said a fun little set.
This last weekend I started making (mass production as far as production goes) the altered composition books so I can be prepared for any upcoming "shows" or sales that I participate in. I also, believe it or not, worked on some gum/chapstick holders for holiday gifts. I know, it is early but I have to be prepared you know! Plus you should all be thinking about those holiday cards and not waiting until the last minute to make them. But I am guessing that you are waiting for the new SU catalog to come out. I know I am along with the retired list that will come out on May 1st.
So- I will leave you all with good wishes on your tax returns, mine went out in the mail today (once again- shame on me!).
Tata for now!

I just love this set and I was trying to figure out why I would need to get it and just couldn't justify having it but............ I was overcome with the urge to splurge so I got it. And I am so glad that I did, not only can I alter items but it is great for cards too! Here I took a composition book and altered it and I am thinking of making a few of these and giving them to some friends (hm, I wonder who might get these!). The paper is K&Co and SU tempting turquoise and Celery (one of my all time favs!). I also used some hodgepodge and the round tab and spiral punch.
For the card, which is standard size, I used the same set but also Polka Dots and Petals (remember how much I love this set?) Oh- and I did send it on to Jen so she can enjoy it as much as I did! Anywho- I cut the flower out to make it stand out a bit. I was thrilled with the way this card turned out.

The next card I did I made it 4x4 inches and used some of my clear envelopes for this one. I used the earth tones, Mustard, Rust and then Chocolate and mounted it on a chocolate card. Sometimes I just like to get a little note instead of the regular size- makes it a bit more mystery I think.
And that is it for the first day of photo posting. I hope that you all enjoy these. I wish you all a Blessed Easter!!! Ta Ta for now!

I have yet to post any pictures, shame on me............ I know but once I have some viewers ask for them then I will know it is time. Don't you all flock in at once either! (smile). I just have not had time but I will work on it and try to get some things in here so that I then can post that my blog has photos! Yikes.......... what will I do then, they will expect things of me, want more (or not! LOL!)
Oh, the tipper for the day- it is snowing! What the heck, this is crazy but I guess I have to expect this in Michigan right? Well I must go- have a "craft night" and look forward to seeing my buddies (you know who you are!).

Don't you feel like your time is flying by though- especially when you do have stuff planned and have no extra time to do anything? I keep telling my kids not to wish their youth away (oh yeah= like I would ever have listened to my mother tell me that!) and to savor their time because it will go much faster as they get older. I actually get excited with butterflies in my tummy when we have no plans. It just feels good to know I have no one expecting anything from me, well short of the laundry and meals for the family/cats. I can do what I want and when I want to do it and that includes NAPS too! Oh, I had one this weekend and it felt so good- go ahead, try one! You will not regret it.
Sooner or later ladies I am going to have to add some crafting along with this happy site don't you think? I will have to load some photos later and get them added if I can figure that part out. Yikes............ that will cause some gray hair and loss of years for sure!
Take care and talk to you later!
