Just in case...

anyone is still up or has a chance to check this in the morning here is another sneak peek. Since it was mentioned that I hinted that I might show 2 I thought I would give you one more :)

Of course this isn't one of the WOW cards because I just can't do that but I do have to say that it is pretty cute. This one was inspired by one of the swap cards I recently recieved and I decided to scale it down and make it a note card. Oops! Speaking of making it a note card that reminds me I forgot to pack something for it or I guess I should say for the envelope. I guess I had better add that to my list to put in my bag tomorrow.

Anyway, I'm off to finish my last few things and go to bed.

As promised...

Here is one of the cards we are doing tomorrow. I have to tell you that I had a really hard time doing this though because I like to keep them a secret (usually right up until we are about to do the card). So I need you to tell me if you like getting sneak peeks or do you like to be surprised?

I don't have too much left to do for tomorrow so I am hoping to get some time to play later. We'll see how the day goes though:)

Too cute!

This is a sneak peek at one of the cards we are doing tonight. It is a cased card from SCS that Roberta e-mailed me a picture of a few days ago. I wasn't going to do a Christmas card tonight but I couldn't help it.

I changed the card just a little to use what I have and just love it. I can't wait to until everyone does them tonight. The other card is with Carte Postale and I am very excited about that. This was my first time using Carte Postale and I am in love with this set. I am hoping to use it in my scrapbooking soon too.

I have been super busy getting ready for Saturday's stamp camp and last night I did a card for CompuPro's open house next weekend. Tomorrow I will upload a sneak peek at one (maybe even 2) of the cards we are doing on Saturday. I promise- I already took the picture so I have no excuses. Well maybe time but I am almost ready so I will be sure to make time.

More Scrapgala

This is the picture frame we made in the Hung up on Family class. I had this picture with me but didn't like the colors so I printed it in Sepia when I got home and dry brushed the edges a little to make it go with the frame better.

I really don't know what my favorite class was but I have to say that I loved this one and want to find more of these frames so I can do more and maybe even teach a class with them.

I just had the best weekend. Mom, Amy (my sister) and I went to Monton for ScrapGala this past weekend. We had 2 full days of classes and loved every one of them. The teachers were awesome. Some of the classes were more fast paced and some were slower and more relaxing. The ones that I had at the end of both days were more relaxing and it was a nice end to the day. We made books, did scrapbook pages, made little holiday ornaments and even made a wall hanging.

All of the teachers gave out prizes and in Kah Mei's class if you won a prize you had to tell something about yourself or do something. Every once in a while you would hear someone in the hall yell "I love scrapbooking". We were in her class last on Saturday and when Amy won we decided that she would have to have a stamp on her cheek and then she got to keep that stamp.

This is all of the teachers when at the "Thank you" to the teachers. They all said that they can't wait to come back next year. They loved teaching here.

I really can't put into words how great these teachers were. I really hope they can all come back next year and am planning on being there.

I will take some pictures of the projects and post them later. I know I will have more to say then too 'cause I know there are things I wanted to say that I missed. I do have to get some of my house work done so check back later.

One Week

Well I can't believe it has been a week since I posted. It has been a really busy week so here is a quick recap.

Friday night was Alicia's party, Saturday morning we left for Dad's 50th party that night. Sunday we left my parents after lunch and we dropped Joe off in Sherwater. About 15 minutes after we left Sherwater Ian started saying he smelled something. We stopped at Tim's by the airport and Sasha (the dog) had had diarea (sp?) in the back seat. Thank goodness my sister was with me cause I don't know how I would have cleaned that up with 2 kids and a dog. We arrived home around 10:00 and then my neighbor took Amy to the ferry in Saint John Monday morning.

Monday I took Ian to have his picture re-takes for school because his first one had a clear line of snot from his nose to his lip. We had to wait an hour but I think it will be worth it.

The last couple of days I have been getting everything cut out for class tonight and working on my name badge for the scrapping weekend in Moncton this weekend. I am meeting Mom & Amy in Moncton tomorrow night. I am getting a babysitter to come until Joe gets here so I can leave a little earlier. I can't wait after this week I am so ready to relax and take some classes.

This is the name badge that I spent too much time on but there is a contest for the best one so hopefully I will win something and make it worth while :) You can't see it in the picture but there is glitter on my name and in the center of the flower. I used bravo burgandy craft ink and holographic embossing powder.

Ok so that wasn't a very quick recap but I hope you had a little laugh with me over the dog incident. I can laugh about it now that I have my van clean again!

Happy Halloween

I hope you all had a happy Halloween. This is a picture of my treaters before we went out. I took both of them to a few places and then Joe took Ian to a few more while Emma and I handed out treats to the last 3 (of 15) kids we had.

Ian is already asking when Halloween will be again.

So, today I can pre-order from the Winter mini and I have no idea what to order. I want it all! Well almost all, I'm sure there must be a few things I can do without :) Not sure just what though. I guess I had better make another list and try to narrow it down a bit.
