I am back from my scrapbooking weekend away!

Hi All,

I am back from my scrapbook weekend at the Wild Horse Pass Resort in Chandler, Arizona and it was great. It was put on by Scrap Sistaz here locally and if I must say, they did a great job. There was about 95 of us and a great time was had by all.

I only got a few scrapbook pages done because a bunch of pictures that I was going to use were not in my envelope of pictures. Well duh!!!! Do you think I bothered to check THAT before I left for the weekend?! I did make a couple of cards though and wanted to share them with you.

Will share more after I get the pictures from the crop organized. Have a great week!

Wow! Over 2000 hits!!

Hi All,

I can't believe it. Over 2000 hits. When I started this blog, I never would have imagined this. Thanks to all who stop by to check it out. I really appreciate each and every visit.

Sorry I haven't added too much to the blog lately. With the new job, by the time I get home, I am brain-drained and haven't felt much like crafting. I know, it shocks you to hear that come from me, but I have had sooo much information crammed into my head in the last two and a half weeks that I can't come up with anything but a mess!

I am going to a weekend crop on Friday and hope to get my creative juices flowing again. Good thing it will be inside since the temperature here in Arizona is supposed to be 115 degrees for most of the weekend. I will mainly be working on my scrapbook of our trip to Texas in March to see our Granddaughter. But I also plan on taking some card-making supplies with me as well. A few of my friends want me to teach them what I know of the Gypsy since they have not had a chance to experiment with theirs yet. And they want me to teach them how I go about making my cards. I really need the time away to do nothing other than crafting. I am sooooo looking forward to it. I will post pictures next week of my creations.

Again, thanks for stopping by and come back again soon!!

I made it through the week!!

Hi All,

I made it through my first week back working. I am very tired, but so very happy to be working again. My brain is on overload with all the information that I have been given to process. I really think I am going to love working at this company. I am a contract worker, but hope to get hired on permanently when the contract is complete.

Anyway, I wanted to post a couple of cards that I made last weekend. The anniversary card is for my husband's brother and his wife.

And the the "Hershey" card is for a friend of mine's husband for his birthday. His nickname is Hershey and she wanted a card that referred to Hershey chocolates. I even inked the white mat on the inside with brown chalk ink to make it look like someone had chocolate on their fingers when they opened the card. She loved it and I hope her husband will like it too.

With the long weekend, I hope to get some crafting time in and will try and post again. I hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July with family and friends! Later!!
