Starbucks candy holder

I made these little treat holders for the scrapbook retreat I went to a few weeks ago for my girls to enjoy while scrappin' I just keep forgetting to post pictures. Again, it's the Bo-Bunny dot paper that i love so much.

This is what I did this weekend

I made cards almost all's what I made. I got these new stamps from I Break for Stamps that make me laugh. They are in their humorous seniors series. Then I used my Twisted Sentiments set from My Favorite Things and you get the next 4 slightly naughty, yet funny cards.

Next, Grandpa asked if I could make him a few golf related thank you notes. I don't know what I used this golf paper for in the past but thankfully I had it in my scraps bin and thus, 2 thank you notes born.

Lastly, I just love these new stamp sets I have from Stampin' Up so I made this card. Thanks for looking!

Baby card

This is a card I scraplifted from Hambo Stamps Blog for my cousin who is having a little boy in December/January. Used my own finger print and the one little swimmer still needs a tail.

All Scraps

Here's a card I made for my uncle for his birthday. I'm trying to use a bunch of scraps cuz my stash is getting a little too full for my taste. I have no clue what the paper is other then the shiny stuff from Wal-mart again.

More swaps

So here is my latest swap that I did for the Cricut forum. It's 8X8 and it was called Starters and Finishers (appetizers and desserts). For my starter I did fresh Veggie Pizza. I used a bunch of scraps and stash papers that I don't know where they even came from.

My finisher is actually a Weight Watchers recipe that I love for Key Lime Pie. I used some of that crazy paper from the Wal-Mart stack that I never thought I would use but bought anyway and it's actually growing on me. Then I used some cheap patterned paper from Hobby Lobby and some ribbon from the stash as well and a little green brad and some bling at the bottom.

I don't think I've posted all my swpas on here but in the last week I've mailed out 3 swaps and have this one ready to go out in todays mail. I've been a busy girl.

Here's my plug for Altered Art Playground....go check out there blog! They have lots of fun new stuff and contests. Tell them I sent ya :)

Weekend retreat

This last weekend was the Scrappin' Ladies retreat so I met the girls up there and we scrapped all weekend. This is Michelle, Pat and Myself. Kris couldn't make it but we missed her!

Here's what I worked on this weekend...this is my cookie sheet calendar. I used the pirate princess paper by Rusty Pickle. I'm in love with this line. Everytime I order online I have to order more of this. I know, I'm obsessed. The flowers are from Petaloo. All the numbers and months and holidays are magnetic so they can be moved. Everything is stored on the back side.

My trip to Maine was what, 3 years ago and I'm still scrappin' pictures of it? Here are the pictures from Acadia National Park. I don't remember what the plaid paper is but the accent paper is Bo-Bunny's dot paper. I love this stuff! The back side looks like suede and that's what I love more then the dots.

I had too many pictures to fit on this layout so my top right picture I made into an accordion thing. When you pull on it, you can view the other 4 photos that I wanted on here. My trees are cut from Doodlecharms and the bottom hills and trees are from Plantin Schoolbook, the words are from Opposites Attract (thanks Kendra for letting me borrow this cart).
Next I did the pictures from the Texas Titan roller coaster that I rode last summer at 6 Flags Over Texas. I loved this coaster! It was a 255 foot almost straight down drop into a dark tunnel. Best coaster I've ridden on yet! I used paper by Moxxie and embellies from Jolee's. I also bought some crazy mirror paper from Walmart and used that for the words.
I've been graduated from college since 2001 and these pictures are just getting scrapped as well. All is card stock from Hobby Lobby and embellies from Jolee's.

Last I scrapped the pics of the girls and I from our retreat in April up at Storm Mountain. This is where I met Kri, Pat and Michelle. I love scrappin' with you girls!
