September with Sweetwater

I got to play this weekend with Sweetwater's September Kit. I used some old photos - some much older than others. The one of my daughter was a few years ago at fall festival. The other is me and my siblings camping somewhere out west way back when.....

Inque Boutique in da house (and a flair sneak peek)

pppssst.... I now have in my possession 5 of the new Inque Boutique CHA Summer release stamp sets. I just wanted to spread the word that they have hit the stores. I ordered mine from Sonshine Craft and this week I noticed that Scrap Supply has them in. If you are looking for these stamps - hurry before they sell out and you have to wait for restock. :)

(now before you get back to your regular internet about a sneak peek from flair?)

These were made with Flair Designs' new "Holly Jolly" and "Rejoice" Christmas collections.

I've been bitten...

I've been bitten. I've been bitten by the kit club bug. My local scrapbook store closed it's doors this summer and I've been stalking kit club sites trying to decide to join one or not. Then I wandered over to Melissa Phillip's blog. If you've never seen Melissa's card creations, you will be in for a treat. Well, that was where I saw it. The club. Only to find out that I missed it's debut. But nevertheless, I was bitten. I just joined The Scarlet Lime Kit Club. Check it out. If you join by Sept. 10, you have the option of purchasing the debut limited edition stamps from the September kit.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

She got me...I've been tagged

Well - she got me with a tag! Hilary K. tagged me, only I think she forgot to tell me. Oh well, I wandered over to her blog a few days later and found it. She wants me to list a few (8) random things about me. Gee, I hate to bore you - but I guess I needed to post on my blog anyway. Here goes.

1. I took piano for about 7 years.

2. I saw Elvis in concert around 1974 and cried when he came out. And I was pretty young, but I remember it.

3. I was born in France.

4. I've always had a dachshund in the family since as far as I can remember.

5. I taught myself how to sew, crochet, and cross-stitch.

6. I love to make Thanksgiving dinner.

7. My favorite color is purple.

8. I recently amazed my teenage son at my ability to cross my arms while jumping rope. (I thought you'd like that one.)

So.....I have some wonderful news. I've been asked to join the creative team at Creative Xpress! I'm thrilled about it. There is an amazing design team there and I can't believe I get to join them.

Last week Piggy Tales selected their 2007-2008 team and I was asked to join the team for the 2nd year. The new team (4 returning members and 6 new girls) consists of:

Ruth Clarke returning dt member
Melanie Douthit returning dt member
Becky Heisler
Tracie Hudson
Celia King returning dt member
Trina Linford - DT Coordinator / Co-Owner
Lacintha Naidoo
Julie Overby
Barb Pfeffer returning dt member
Teresa Tyree
Amber Winward

Congratulations to the new team!

I've been in the mood for some cooler weather, so I hope fall comes soon in the south. I pulled an older photo from my stash and scrapped it using Cosmo Cricket's new Gretel papers, which went great with Prism Paper's Kraft cardstock. That's all for now!
