Explanation for my absense!

I promise - I have a GOOOOOODDD explanation for my long absence. My high school reunion is in 3 days and I've been coordinating it for the past three months. Seriously. I've learned lots of new technical skills, created a 17 minute slide-show DVD, made a few digital scrapbook pages (for the reunion, of course) - and made AND BOUND a spiral bound program/directory with old high school photos in it. Seriously, I feel like I have moved mountains!!

I can share a new creation with you. It's actually something I made last month for Dream Street papers. On one of our mall excursions, we stopped in a photo booth for some silly photos. I couldn't wait to scrap them.









I used the "Heart Song" collection on this. The chipboard birds are new from Stampin Up!

Speaking of Dream Street - have you seen the new collections yet?? Merry & Bright, Nature's Poetry, Sam, Superstition and Urban Ink! Click here to see new papers; click here for awesome new rub ons; and click here for alphabet and die cut shapes. You will love these new lines.

I'll check in AFTER my high school reunion and start cranking out some new creations with these awesome lines!
