Cool new website

Anyone interested in what Heidi Swapp, Rhona Farrer or Janet Hopkins has to say or their digital designs will love their new website called House of 3.  I see some cool digital designs already available by Rhonna Ferrar.

CHA 2009

I know it has been forever since I posted but I certainly do not want to miss out on any of the new releases from CHA.   I have been following the Making Memories blog here and trying to see all their releases as well as win something.   Basic Grey is totally amazing again this year and I found the new releases here.  Another one of my fave’s is FancyPants.  This website covers a lot of releases.  Check here.

Woo hoo…..Canadian Scrapbooker magazine arrived

I am completed stoked by the magazine.  I just have looked through it quickly but am so proud to get my lst time publication in this magazine.   I didn’t realize until today that I will be receiving a gift from a scrapbook store as well.  Can hardly wait to find out what it is.   I am impressed with the way my layout looks in the magazine as well….much better scan than I could ever hope doing.

Crop and Cruise event in Saskatoon

I must say I had a blast at this event.   It was well put on and the food was to die for.  Lots of stuff in our goodie bags and doorprizes.  I loved all the make and takes we did as well.  I must admit that I did way more socializing than scrapping.  It was so wonderful to meet a few of the ladies from Scrapbooking Fanatics as well as women I have met before at crops.  My friend who started me in scrapbooking was also there and it was terrific to see her again.

Here is a few photos

National Card Making Day

Whoopee…..I just may be out of my scrapbooking slump.  I was over to my friend’s Connie’s place today and we played all pm and part of the evening making cards.  I only got two of them complete but am very happy with both of them.  One I used Oxford Collections stamps and the other I used American Crafts Glitter cuts on it.

Hurrah!!!

I finally did a layout.  I put my mind to it this pm and did a page for my Book of Me.  I dug out an old photo of me and Brad Johner (woo hoo) at a party and came up with this layout.  I used Cloud 9 Cinnamin Sticks pp and embellishments along with Maya Road Office Sheers which Caroline sent me.  I also used foil for the first time on my dots.  Going to take a bit of getting used to.
