07/28 Preview of August SOM D1286 Today's Date

When I received this stamp set, I wasn't really crazy about it. But after all of these cards, it is growing on me! Check out the slide show below for the rest of the designs. I am off to the Close to My Heart Convention on Wednesday for some fun and frivolity! I promise I won't be singing to anyone while I am there!

07/27 Mamma Mia trio!

Ok - this is the reason I LOVED Mamma Mia! This is me and my best friends at my goddaughter's wedding - OK a few years later than the 80's but oh well! Can you guess which character I am in the movie?!!!

Great memories of my youth!!

07/22 I LOVED Mamma Mia!

Ok, ladies. No idiotic car chases, blood and no brains blowing apart! Just plain
F-U-N. You must see Mamma Mia! Not to mention my favorite - Remington Steele a.k.a Pierce Brosnan and Meryl Streep.

What a great movie! Of course I was listening to ABBA when they recorded the music the FIRST time - Life is good!

07/22 What cha' doin' Ma?

Harley just had to see what I was doing this morning - taking a picture of my layout, of course! He decided to pop his head in at the exact moment I snapped the photo. Did I tell you he loves paper? He eats all of the scraps while I am scrappin'. No need to vacuum!

07/21 Level 1 Flip Book

I found this great project from Stacy and purchased the directions for only $10.00! The cd includes 59 step-by-step photos to make this EASY flip book! I used a Level 1 paper pack from Close to My Heart called Good Times (X7092A) but any Level 1 paper pack will do. It doesn't matter how old Robbie is - he is always the funny guy!

07/13 All Day Club Scrap Challenge!

Afer spending some time weeding my flower bed, I decided to put a dent in my Greeting Cards challenge for Club Scrap. I was inspired by some greeting card photos in the Scrap Rap and went right to work. I LOVE how they turned out!

The only flower pic NOT from my California trip is the sunflower. That beauitul gem is from my husband's sunflower plant.

07/140/09 Still goin' with the Watermelon theme!

I decided this post needed to be brought back simply to match my new blog design. Isn't it awesome?!! Huge thanks goes to

This card is for the CTMH Friends Card Sketch Challenge - I am so lucky to have to time to be creative! It should really be "You are ONE in A Melon!" but my mind was somewhere else!

Stamp and ink colors are CTMH Holiday Red, Clover Meadow and Black. I used the waterbrush to color the watermelon wedges.


07/10 I'm Back.............

....and the best part is that my mojo is back, also! What am I talking about? - my creative part of me - stifled from months of working with teenagers!- has returned! My first post is my Circular Watermelon Book - such fun! I wished I had taken more pictures of my children eating watermelon!

The cover is from an idea I got after buying napkins and paper plates at KMart!

The inside pages are circles cut with my Cricut Expressions and embellish with CTMH stamps. Robbie did LOVE watermelon!

Cute, huh? look for this workshop in August!
