World Card Making Day October 1, 2011

I was told it was time to do another Shoebox Swap. Since I quit selling for Stampin' Up! I haven't made the time to do these any longer. Wendy McKenzie and I were talking about me setting one up and came up with 10/1/11 World Card Making Day.

I scheduled the church and posted on the Living Springs Stamping and Scrapbooking facebook page as well as sent an email out to all my 'scramping' friends. Then, Stacie Mandrell asked if we could make it a Scrappin' Creations event also.

It was good to get back together with old friends and make cards. We worked from 10am-3:30pm creating. The ladies did stop to have lunch - made by everyone (salads). The cards were made with Stampin' Up! stamps, Close to My Heart stamps, Cricut cartridges, Cuttlebug folders, Sizzix folders and so on. Please click the title to go to the facebook page with the cards.

Easter 2011

We had a great Easter - very uneventful. The Easter service was long but nice. The Bells played the prelude ("Because He Lives") and we were perfect! I had to choke back the tears!!

After church service, we came home and made a quick ham, mac 'n cheese, green beans and rolls. Wendy and Meredith McKenzie came over for dinner and brought a great potato salad and dessert! After we ate, we went to see "Rio". A cute movie!

Audrey was beautiful and Evan was handsome for church. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Joy of Love - Day 3: How He Changed

Evan's day! I was thinking about this picture today. Evan was born 3 weeks early and his birth mother smoked. The combination produced a small baby. He was right at 5 1/2 pounds. His legs were so small. I thought he would break! It didn't take long for him to grown - by leaps and bounds. My friend, Anita Dye, offered to make his baptismal outfit. He was baptized at 4 months old. She had to add a piece to the outfit so it would fit!

So, as you can see - Evan has changed a lot in 12 years!

Joy of Love - Day 2: What They Look Like

After Day 1, Audrey and Evan both said 'Are you going to take our picture EVERY day?' So today, I got one shot and one shot only. Audrey is 14 and a freshman at Spring Valley High School. Evan is a 6th grader at Summit Middle School.

Joy of Love Day 1 - What They Do

I joined this photography log to get back into using manual settings on my camera. So you will see some good pictures, not so good pictures, etc. Day 1 is 'What They Do'. I took pictures of my daughter, Audrey, doing homework. I think my favorite picture is of her hands.

Cricut Cartridge Storage

I hate carrying those large boxes for the cricut cartridges to a CROP. I found the instructions on It took 1/2 hour to make and since I got the ribbon box on sale, it was $5.50 to make! Taking my cartridges to crops won't be such a hassle now! The top picture shows all the boxes that the storage replaces! Pretty great idea!
