Where did May go???

Oh my! Am I in the dog house!! Only three posts in May from me! Well, I promise I have been busy and up to every thing good. ;)
I had a great time with my family and as always hate to see them go! My mom and I looked like two blubbering idiots as we said our good byes once again. I just hate being so far away from my family. They did get to see the great sites of Colorado and spend time with more family I have in Denver. The kids loved having them around as well!
During their visit I was a stampin' fool! I had many events that my mom participated in and she had so much fun. I had a big stamp camp that was just a BLAST! Then I had my club and a punch class that she joined in on. May was a SUPER busy stampin' month and June is going to be the same. With all those beautiful stamps retiring I am trying to get the most use out of them. My French Script Background stamp has smoke coming off of it from the tremendous use it is getting. LOL! Who doesn't love that set? Soooo many uses for that one!

I have another BIG Stamp A Stack that is coming up and I can hardly contain my excitement. They are so much fun and the cards are gorgeous. Here is a little sneek peek at one of the cards. Now the original design is not mine. I went through a ton of my swaps from last convention and ran across a card VERY similiar to this. I tweeked it a bit and added a double background and VIOLA, this is one of the cards. To the original designer, whoever you are... amazing card. Just love this! So elegant!

I have another class this month I am excited about. My sideline and best friend mailed me this awesome accordian album that she made using the Simply Scrappin' Friends and Flowers and I LOVE it. So, I played around with it and made another sample using Tickets & Tokens Simply Scrappin' and came up with this lovely little design. This makes such a great little album to use for vacations. I will fill it with my last Salt Lake City trip from Regionals. I have a tween camp coming up and I can't wait. I love to stamp with kids. They are much more talented than we ever give them credit for. They are doing some really fun projects and one is a little journal with all kinds of fun stuff to fill in. I bought some teen magazines because I want them to use a few things in them. Man, do I feel OLD! You know, the good ole' Seventeen Mag and Tiger Beat. They were so GREAT. They had the pull out posters that we all hung in our rooms with Scott Biao (is that spelled right?) on them. What a hunk he use to be. LOL! Anyways, I actually had fun catching up on the teen news.
Well my friends, I am back. I am working on something fabulous for tomorrow already. I better get back to work. I am alive and kickin' and stampin'! Smooches!

Kimberly, so great to hear from you. How wonderful you got to spend time with your Mom. I can't wait to see mine. 11 more days. I haven't been home in 4 Years!!!
Oh....almost forgot to compliment you on your projects. But you know I LOVE everything you do, right?

That album is awesome. Hmmm, that would be so cool to use for pictures when we go to Germany in October. I'll have to look and see what supplies you used. Thanks for sharing it!
