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

We rubbed elbows together and she was a blast.  Thanks for letting me use your stamps.

My dd and family live in Australia.   They were on vacation to Port MacQuarie where my SIL’s brother lives.   They got the most beautiful photos of my grandchildren and I totally love the camel one.

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.

It’s one thing to know that  you are on the Page Maps September 2008 newsletter and also in the card maps but I just found out I am also included on  Friends of Page Maps which is a link on http://www.pagemaps.com.   They posted my link to my gallery…..how cool is that. See here .…..I am way down on the list.  It also was so cool to see so many names of ladies that I have met in the scrapbooking community since I started scrapbooking.

I am pumped tonight

The new Page Maps see here from Becky Fleck for September came out tonight.  I had submitted a card based on one of her sketches and it is on the site.  I was so thrilled when she asked me to do a card in the first place and equally thrilled when she said she loved it.  Woo Hoo….

I am so proud so far

My sister in law is taking part in the Ironman in Penticton today.  She did an incredible time for her age bracket in the swim at 1 hr and 21 mins.  I just checked the website and she has completed the bike ride through the mountains to Osoyoos and back which is 112 miles in 7.25 hrs.  She is now in her final leg of running which is a course of 26.2 miles.  Woo hoo….I am so proud of her to have the endurance and tenacity to complete this grueling marathon.
