Sneak Peek......

 I promised my stamping buddies that I'd offer them a "sneak peek" at the projects I have prepared for an upcoming workshop.
The main project will be a 2011 Desktop Calendar. I spotted this idea on Nancy Morgan's and  Michelle Tech's website. We'll be using A Flower for all Seasons stamp set from SU!, rather than A Tree for All Seasons.  We won't be using the same designer paper in the picture, since it is retired....we will be using something similar, however.

The Halloween project is one I posted several days ago. The paper will be different, since what I used is retired, but the basic design is the same.
The workshop will be a terrific time for you to browse through the new 2010-11 Idea Book, as well as the new Holiday Mini.
For more details about the workshop, check out the events on my Stampin' Up! website, or you can email me.

Booooooooooooo to You!

I was shopping in Walgreens last week and picked up a box of "ghost" Peeps, just knowing that it needed a covering of some sort!  Since I have a ton of retired designer paper from Stampin' Up! (that I dearly love), I decided to use some on this project. I didn't even purchase any of the new Halloween paper. I'm trying to make it a point to use up my old paper before I invest in any more. (Let's see how long that lasts!)
I will post the template for the box in a day or two. The ghost stamp is from the stamp set  Batty For you #116576 by Stampin' Up! The sentiment stamp is from another company, but I thought it was perfect for this project.

Feelin' a Little Witchy....

Not really.......we had a wonderful weekend at the lake. I climbed the stairs with my granddaughter about fifty million times....we threw little stuffed Dora, Boots, Swiper, and Baby Jaguar toys over the railing at the top....hid in the closet......played on the bed.....just stuff any grandma worthy of her name would do!! ;-)
We spent Saturday afternoon swimming by the dock. Leighton is a little fish.....and a daredevil. She loves jumping off the dock....with absolutely no fear (wearing her "puddle-jumpers" flotation vest). She rode the jet ski with her mama and daddy.  Then, her papa convinced me to get on the jet ski with him.....BIG MISTAKE! He turned us over! Luckily, we were only about 10 yards from our dock, and of course, we had on life jackets. After that little escapade, papa and I decided that the float was more our speed!

I spent a little time before we left last week making this little tiny treat box. I used SU! Old Olive paper, but the image is from another company. I purchased it several years ago and just think it's precious. The instructions for the box came from Splitcoast Stampers. The pictures don't do the box justice. I just couldn't get a very good picture for some reason.

Apple of My Eye....

This was a fun card to make! I actually made it sometime last spring. I think the images are digital stamps, but I just don't remember. Too much water under the bridge since then!
