I went to Marge's monthly class tonight and came home with three winners! My blogging friend LadyDoc asked, "Who's Marge?" Marge is my friend, teacher, and favorite SU demonstrator. She holds a monthly class in her home, usually presenting three or four cards for the girls attending to make. Next month's session is an all occasion share. Each girl brings a card to "share" with the group, including stamps and anything that goes beyond the basic supplies.

I leave for San Francisco on Friday afternoon and won't return until Tuesday so I will be off-line for a bit. I can't wait to see my mom!

Variations on a theme

While at Marge's for an impromptu stamping session, I borrowed "A Good Egg" to stamp out some images to play with later. I had a good time with embellishments, as you can see.

Cooking and Cracking Up

I made these cards with Marge at her February class. Both were pretty straight forward.

My Dad (and updated Mom)

Here is the picture of my dad that I wanted to play with. I didn't have as much time as I had hoped this weekend but did manage a few things, this foray into PhotoShop Elements included. I took Savitri's advice and added shadows to some of the elements and see a marked difference in the overall page. You can see a before and after if you look at the picture of my mom from the previous post and the one included in this. I'll post a few other cards I managed to put together later tonight if I get a chance--tomorrow at the latest.

Ruby June

I think this is my favorite layout I’ve done so far. It is a picture of my mom from her childhood. I am enjoying learning the ins and outs of Photoshop Elements 4.0 for my Mac. I have a picture of my dad that I may work on tomorrow.

Another Digital Layout

I started a scrapbook for my son's Scout memories. This will be printed and inserted. My husband bought me an awesome printer that will print 12x12 so I don't have to send the file out for printing. Haven't done much traditional paper crafting this weekend...was busy with a project for church. Hope everyone has a great week!
