Weekend away...

Got away with these fine ladies to Lake Geneva:It was drizzly, so I didn't take a lot of photos.

But I did create these:And one more that will be revealed on Sketch Day for May from Imaginisce! :)

I made the Studio Calico Blog! :)

I had wanted to transform my old bulletin board for some time... and then Studio Calico was having a challenge to make a home decor item... and the example was using something you had already...

I had JUST seen some awesome inspiration from Jennifer...

How could I resist the challenge!

Something old made new again.
In the past it just held coupon I'd forget to use, or sign-up sheets I eventually forgot!

Try it... make something new out of something old!

Got a little Mojo...

Believe it or not! :)
I still have some other things too that I need to get photographed and up! WOW!

Just to tempt you.... this is a sneak peek of my sketch for The Story Matters, that will post tomorrow! :) It's a simple sketch to work with! I just loved it! :)
(I'll add the sketch tomorrow)
Then I joined the banner craze, and worked with American Crafts papers to complete the challenge "changing seasons"... (in layout form). :) So I thought to say Goodbye to Summer.
Weird time for that, huh? :)
THEN, while going through my stuff contemplating what will go in the Scrapaganza Garage Sale, I came across this paper, and thought to do a quick page. :)
AND (whew, huh?) I wanted to scraplift myself, cuz I thought this paper lent itself to a Christmas layout I did with American Crafts previously. I worked with the Adobe line of papers (LOVE the colors and the bold graphics!) & I did this page! (Excuse the graininess of the photo-I used the store camera, cuz I left the layout there. I think they have it set on "the smallest and grainiest possible. Yeah THAT works for me. {sigh})
I LOVE my I-Top for pages like these!!!
Making brads that I can center the image on the brad... YEAH! Love that! :)
Get it... Dinner @ Dad's {house} :)
This was Thanksgiving dinner last year. :)
Thanks for lookin'!
If you liked something, leave me some love! Comment. :)

Easter slide show! :)

Just thought I would throw together a quick slide show of our Easter!

We continued the tradition of church, then straight to "Grandpa Don and Grandma Dinah's" house for an Easter egg hunt! Still a blast for them-as you can see from them running around "on the hunt"! I even caught a shot RIGHT before Gavin collided with his cousin Arra! (No injuries) Too funny!

Grandpa and Grandpa throw in lots of change and even hide some dollars, in addition to the sweet treats!

Cora has gotten a "dress-up" dress from Grandma Dinah's for a couple years now for Christmas... perfect, I think for Easter wear! :)

Everyone ate well and had a great time!

Thank you Grandpa and Grandma! :)
