I love to create good things! I usually only scrap for myself when i am completely stressed or on my annual 4 day trip with my lovely friends (which is coming up soooo soon!!! wooohoo!) but lately i have been trying to practice what i preach...."you need to make time! schedule it like an appointment!" So with that in mind i made an appointment a couple times last week!
What a trip! ALOT of walking, sweating and waiting! we had fun though! It was nice to go on vacation with my parents, I can not remember the last time that was! I am sure this will be the last for them!! waiting for 7 other people to get ready in the morning is not there norm, they are usually up by 4 and out the door by 6! We were doing good if everyone ate BEFORE the breakfast bar closed at 10am!!!
I will share more later, my home Internet connection is slooooooooooow!
Oh, it is not easy for me to say "you were right!" but when i do I can say it with a smile! So......Kristopher....."you were right!" I broke out the Silhouette and have discovered I have another addiction.....Here is some of our wonderful creations. I had the help of Maya & Addison. (yes, so easy a 4 year old can do it!)
This is Maya...she makes her first communion next week. She had to make this banner for her big day. It will be on display on the pew during mass. The assignment was to create a banner with her likes and interests included. The peace sign is a perfect Maya touch! We created it using heat transfer and the Silhouette!
Here is my creation. As soon as I spotted this pillow in the store, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!
The best for last.....sweet Addison. So happy with her purple cow! We cut it out of vinyl and adhered it to her pink wall, right under the Princess sign! Impressed with Maya's banner she wanted to create a cow shirt? She loves it! So fun to create stuff with these beauties!
Do you have a Silhouette? If not I highly recommend it! I even know where you can purchase one!!!
I am sure there are alot of you out there including my ever so patient hubby who thinks i play all day....oh how i wish!!! Well this weekend I was lucky enough to play all day with my friends! I attended a 2 day crop and the best time! Thanks girls! (no, this was not a Scrap Happy crop, just incase you might have thought you missed something) Here is a little of what I created!
New Basic Grey...not in the store yet but coming soon!
Happy 8th birthday Maya! A month late? I know I always ask "where does the time go" but seriously where does the time go? 8 years ago I was blessed with my second daughter, my "lavendar" baby! Today you are excited to be learning to write in cursive!
The first picture is our birthday tradition...cupcakes!!! One day while shopping at Wal Mart(yes, Joanne I was at Wal Mart!!) I came accross this cupcake book, so every year the girls pick out a cupcake to create....well for me to create!
She's 4! Yes, Dear Addison who was stil in an infant carrier when the store opened is now 4 years old! Looks are deciving with this little girl....she looks like her oldst sister Bailey but acts just like Maya!!! imagine that! Happy 4th Addi! PS if you look close enough you can see our dog Daisy in the house...don't tell Ron!
