My baby's first hair cut...

Time sure flies!  And anyone with little ones of their own can certainly agree.  My baby got his first hair cut last week and he's now starting to walk :(  Love that he's reaching his milestones, but just one more thing he won't need me to help him with anymore.

Vendor Fair

Just got home from visiting old friends and meeting new ones. Vendor fairs are always a nice way to meet new people and see what other consultants have to play with.  This weekend I am borrowing a couple of new products from Pampered chef to test!  So excited! 

Also, filled some spots for my scrappy hour club staring in Jan!  Some seats still open, reserve if you are thinking about it!  Great way to preserve your memories that are stashed in that shoe box or still on your hard drive! 

Have a goodnight!

I just learned that I can post on my blog and it will be updated to my FB page!  How cool?!  Cuts my workload in half :)

Layouts for Fall

I have been busy working on scrapping my pics from this Fall and halloween.  I've done 2, more to come of course. 

 This layout is thanks to Terri F.  She taught us the technique and the idea to use the wood grain stamped crate.  Super cute!

This is my idea of the layout found in the idea book.  I of course changed some of the papers and colors to go with my photos.  I used the Mischief Rub-ons and I love how it all turned out.   

The title is one of the Compliments Rub-ons for the Mischief paper pack.

Workshop November 22nd----Kids Welcome!

I have so many customers and friends with small children I knew it was time to create a workshop that kids could 'do' and where moms can chit-chat.  This workshop is only $5.00 and includes all materials except your families Christmas traditions. 

This December Event Calendar was inspired by my childhood around the holidays.  As a family, we would always try to do new things, get outdoors, and be active.  December this year, I wanted to put into action some of those old traditions and some new ideas from my family.  There are 24 tags, and each tag has a new activity that the kids can draw and we NEED to do them all by Jan. 1st.  (fingers crossed!) 

Workshop will be November 22nd at 5:30pm and the fee is $5 per Calendar box.

Happy Birthday Challenge for The Pink Stamper's Birthday!

I've decided that I am going to try to do a couple challenges a week.  This will be my first ever, super excited!  This challenge is all due to The Pink Stamper's birthday today!  So this a fast, super, cute birthday card I've made.  She was a cheerleader in  high school, as was I, so I loved the idea of using a megaphone.  I also used a paper flower technique that looks like a mini pom-pom!  LOVE IT! 

All products are Close To My Heart except the megaphone cut out--cricut cart Locker Talk, and the  rhinestones--Studio 18.
CTMH colors: Lagoon, Vineyard Berry, Sunny Yellow, and Blush
CTMH Stamps: Happy Birthday C1257
CTMH others: Scallop 2" punch, Kraft Color-ready Borders


This morning I woke up and talked myself into going to a first ever MOPS meeting.  I was actually looking forward to going.  When I got there, I soon realized they canceled it, due to school being delayed.  Of course, the day I GO to the meeting, they don't have it. time...

First Open Scrap Day

Yesterday I hosted my first Open Scrap Day for my customers.  It was so nice to sit down and enjoy friends and family as we wasted the day away relaxing and creating.  I was able to complete an Easter banner, bookmarks, and help some ladies who were just getting started.  Looking forward to the next Open Scrap!
