Bon Voyage...

I don't leave for another day, but I probably won't post. The mad rush is on - packing for cha. Getting last minute projects done for the show, calls or whatever. Not to mention the regular life stuff to take care of. As life would have it - my daughter has a new cough so off to the doc in the morning so we can take care of whatever it is "before" mommy leaves. Just in case it's nothing - they are having us come in early before the really sick ones come in. Straight back to the room. Better safe than sorry.

The great scrapbook related news this week is that I was invited to join the Prism Papers brand new Design Team. I've worked with their cardstock for over a year, and love it. I'm so excited to be included with these talented ladies.

On a sad note, this week has seen the passing of my dad's dear cousin, Luther (Uncle Luther to me).

Below are some new projects.
"Adore" uses Paper Salon "Pristine" paper collection. "Mother's Love" Uses Paper salon's Serenity line from the Karen Neuberger collection. This vintage photo is my mother and my oldest sister, Nancy.

This page is using the new line "Blossom" along with the new chipboard alphabet letters and scalloped frame. I used the new Tailored Tins "Pattern Builder" to stamp the background on the frame. Thanks for peeking!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Now we all have to get used to putting 200 "7" on everything we date.

I'm working hard on CHA-W 2007 projects and can't wait to be able to post them. What a wonderful show this is going to be. I'm counting the days. It's been, er, well... I can't say exactly how many, but quite a few years since my last visit to Anaheim. Here I am in the this photo. I'm the brunette in the front seat next to my blonde sister.
I love that my dad took lots of photos. They were all done in slides and I used to gripe about them on being on slides. During the past few years I would take them in for print processing until I learned to scan them. Then he surprised us all and send them somewhere and now we all have them on CD. High quality. LOVE this b/c I had to use one recently and the color wasn't right - so I changed a yellow dress to pink. Call it altering history if you'd like.
One more new and wonderful scrapbook related happening for me. I've been asked to join the Dream Street Papers Design Team! I recently worked with their papers for a challenge in the Pub Calls Challenge. Check them out.
My daughter said the following to her daddy yesterday morning: "Daddy, I need to go to the mall. I want to thank Santa Claus for all my presents".
awwweeeeeeeee. I suggested maybe we send a card since he's on a long vacation now.
Happy New Year!
