Happy Sunday again Friends and Family!!!

I am sorry it took me a whole week to post this card.  I will try and do better next week.  :o)

I am still taking  May Flaum's "Camp Scrap".  I am moving at a snails pace, but I am having a wonderful time doing it.

This is a card from week one "BY DESIGN" class.

Although the design is very simple, sometimes less is more.  I am very happy with how it turned out.

Instead of sewing on the card, I distressed the edges, and used the WeR So Easy rolling stamper.  It really was fun to make.

I hope you all have a wonderful week.  I may make some paper dolls this next week...we shall see!
Hugs to all.  xoxox

Happy Sunday!

Happy Sunday Friends and Family!

I hope everyone is having a fun and relaxing Sunday.  I will do some chores today, and then find some time to do some scrapping.

Yesterday was another story though.  :o)  Yesterday I played in my creative space.  I took another "Camp Scrap" class with May Flaum, this time for a double page layout.  For those of you who know me, if I were to say "I have a lot of paper", that really does not describe how much paper I really have.  I LOVE paper!   But for some reason yesterday I thought I would try and use some of my old paper that I had put aside.  So I went looking and saw a folder I had set aside to do later.  To my surprise, I had set aside pictures, a partially done layout and memorabilia from Scrapbook Expo 2004!  So welcome back to the past, 10 years ago with a few new things added in to get this layout DONE!
Please don't laugh, as this was the cool stuff back then.  :o)

This was my first Scrapbook Expo back in 2010.  My husband Vince, who has always been very encouraging, got involved too, and wanted me to have a great time.  I signed him up for what was called the "Teacher's Pet".  A volunteer who would help pass out supplies and such during class.  So he was the helper for the class I was taking.  He was a BIG hit with the ladies, and helped them tie bows and all sorts of things.  This paper is "Hippie Chick" from SEI, and we both did the SEI Iron Ons together at the SEI booth Make and Take.  The cards on the layout are from the card class that he was the helper in.  Notice the paper tearing and distressing , (crinkled up paper)...VERY big at the time.  :o)

I had saved a ticket and our wrist bands, which is why I used them in the layout.

I did my best to incorporate May's lesson into the old theme.

 I am happy with really makes me smile.  I was so excited about Scrapbooking then.  (That has not changed a bit!)
Tomorrow I will post a card.  Have a great rest of your Sunday!!  Hugs.  xo

Happy Friday to all of my friends and Family!!

I thought I would post another creation from May Flaum's "CAMP SCRAP".

This layout is from her DESIGN class.  I have to be honest, when she first put up this sketch, I was thinking, ""this is just too basic".  BUT, as I kept on going, I found out how fun, and creative I could be with it.  These pictures are from New Year's eve.  My honey and I always take a New Year's picture, and this year we just could not get a picture we were happy with.  So we just kept snapping away, making silly faces.  I will always remember it, because we were laughing so much at each other.

Here are some close up's of some of the detail:

I really LOVE taking classes!!!

I hope you all have a great Friday and a WONDERFUL weekend.  Hugs.

Happy 4th of July my friends and family!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful day having fun, celebrating our country's birthday, and making new memories.

This evening I had some fun creating.  I am taking an online class from May Flaum called "Camp Scrap".  It is a six week class that started last Monday, and I just got around to taking one of the first lessons.  May is a super talented crafty woman, and I have been a huge fan of hers for quite some time.  I highly recommend taking a look at her blog and check her out.

I created this tag after watching her live chat that she conducted last Monday.  She is so inspiring, and has so many great ideas.

I am looking forward to six weeks of fun and creative genius!!

Have a super weekend.  Hugs.  xo
