Paper Crafting Club???

I am trying to decide whether or not to host an after-school paper crafting club.  I would love to have more of a reason to get my supplies out but can 3rd and 4th graders handle it?

Something to show for my time...

Hello!  I finally have a few pages to show off from the different crops I've been too lately.  Who knew I would enjoy going to crops as much as I have?  A friend I met through stamping classes has shown me the light!  (Thanks Rosemary!)  I went on a weekend retreat in June with her and a really great group o ladies.  While the house we stayed in had a few things to be desired...okay, a lot to be desired I still enjoyed myself immensely.  I have another set of pages to post but have to figure out where I put them.

Have a great day!

Well, the school year is winding down and my crafting is revving up!  Our last day with students is Friday the 18th and then only a staff day on Monday to survive.  I spent a wonderful (although hot) weekend with a great group of ladies scrapping away and have pictures to load into the computer and upload.  Hope to have things posted later today or tomorrow at the latest.  I am heading to training tonight so that I can be an official at local swim meets.  Yippee!??

Hang in There...

I put this card together quickly using a wonderful stamp I picked up at DeNami in Allentown.  A dear friend is going through a rough time and I just wanted to quickly make a card so I could get it in the mail to her today.  I used some design paper I picked up at Joann's and my Copics to color.  I wasn't wearing my glasses when I colored this and boy, can I tell but it isn't too bad so off it went.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Stamp Show Fun

Well Girls (and any stray Guys that wander here),
Spring is here and my time is finally freeing up for a little crafty goodness.  The Eagle Scout's scrapbook was a success and I will take pictures of the pages I have completed for my son's book.  I managed to sneak up to Allentown to the Heirloom Stamp Show on Sunday for about an hour and a half.  My craft piggy bank is officially empty!  I spent time at DeNami Stamps, Impression-Obsession and Clear and Simple Stamps.  DeNami has been a long time favorite but the other two are sort of new to me.  I say sort of because while I've seen cards two awesome bloggers (Hi Lori & Savitri!) have posted using their products I didn't connect the dots.  The dots are connected! LOL!

My son has a two hour mixed martial arts class tonight so I am hoping to put ink to rubber tonight while he and my husband are gone.

Boy Scout Biking

  The mountains in the background were cut using Going Places on my Cricut.  I have gotten a lot of use out of it this past couple of weeks working on this project with Patty.

From Cub to Eagle

This is Ben, the son of my friend Patty. He earn the rank of Eagle Scout recently and his mom asked for some scrapbooking help.  Here is what we came up with so far...

These are Ben's entries into the annual Pinewood Derby.
