One of the things I love about Stampin’ Up is that every week they offer these amazing deals! You can go right to my webpage and order them and have them sent directly to your home!
I apologize for being incognito the last few months. This summer had a lot of twists and turns in my personal life and my stamping/scrapbooking was forced to the side for a while. BUT I am back…I’m ready and raring to get you motivated and excited for the upcoming holidays!
This is my favorite Christmas Card. We made this initially at a workshop in 2006 where my sister was the demonstrator and I was the hostess! I have made it every year. The trick is to send it to the ‘newbies’ on my list that way I know I’m not sending something they have already gotten!
it’s hard to see in the picture but the white is edged in dazzling details so it sparkles like crazy!
Today I am participating in the MDS Monday Challenge over at http://www.mdsmonday.blogspot.ca. It’s my first attempt at an ombre – digitally or traditional…not sure I like this particular way of doing it so plan on seeing future attempts! 🙂 I’m working on a Dance 2013-14 scrapbook for my daughter. The goal is to have it finished before competitions start for THIS year in November. This picture was taken after they competed at the State Competition in February which took them to Nationals!
Today I wanted to share a page I did quite a while ago…but it is still my very favorite. These are some of my favorite pics of my now 18 year old Austin. This page was done with the My Digital Studio Scrapbooking software from Stampin’ Up. So simply and easy to use and you can make pages like this in minutes!
Today is the last day of the school year! It amazes me how fast time flies! My beautiful daughter will be a Junior in High School in September. Craziness!
So today I thought I’d share one of my favorite pictures of that beautiful girl growing up. This picture was taken on shores of Lake Michigan during a dance competition at Summerfest in Milwaukee. It was her first year on the team. Last week, she made the team for the 11th year in a row. I’m so very proud of her.

This week I want to share my favorite picture of my oldest son Brandon! He is a lance corporal in the United States Marine Corp and stationed in California. He turned 21 years old on Wednesday. It amazes me how fast those 21 years have gone by. I think that is one of the reasons I am enjoying my time with my youngest Logan so much. It won’t be long and he will be all grown up too!
