Smell that Ocean Air?

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh! It is fabulous. I flew into Florida tonight. Of course my flight was a bit delayed but I made it. As soon as I got to the outside of the airport the humid air hit my face and I could feel my skin screaming out thank you. Being in Colorado, I'm aging fast with the dry air. This is like an immeadiate face lift. It feels good. So good. It is so good to see my family. I miss them so much. My mom picked me up and we had to hug a good 5 minutes. Love how my mama can make me feel so much better in a matter of 2 seconds. It is a great feeling. My dad looks fantastic. Remember he had his open heart in January? Wow, he looks amazing. I am so proud of him. My brother is here too. It has been awhile since I have seen him too. This should be a great trip. I miss my sweet husband and babies, but they are having their own fun as well. Tomorrow is the big day for my Grandmother. She will celebrate 80 years. Amazing. My family is throwing her a huge surprise party. I can't wait to see her face tomorrow. I will keep you posted on how fun it is. Since I am not a perfect planner I don't have anything creative to show you, however I have a cute pic of Alexis that I shot about a week ago. She is such a cute hambone. Have a fantastic weekend.

Feeling more like FALL!

Here in Colorado it is feeling more and more like fall. This is just in time for me to pack my bags and head to Florida. :) Okay, just for a few days, but at least I will get to see the ocean for a couple of days. I will be leaving on Friday to celebrate my Grandmothers 80th birthday. I am so excited to see family.

I've been stamping away and wanted to share a few projects. There are only a couple days left to take advantage of Stampin' Up!'s Fall Frenzy Special. This first project is the 2-5-7-10 box made with Autumn Fest. I love these boxes and all the fun things you can do with them. This box and card were made at workshops this month and a big hit. When stamping the leaf for the card I used the rock and roll technique which added alot of flair to the card. Of course I couldn't stand it and cut out the leaf. I sponged around the edges a bit and Viola! Hope you are enjoying a little bit of fall weather. I know before long I will be saying the word *SNOW* here and I am NOT looking forward to that. YIKES!
Have a fabulous day!

Scrappin' and Stampin'!

Thought I would share a little of what I have been doin'! All products are Stampin' Up! I am getting ready for the holidays and feel a little confused lately. I am making Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas items. My stamp room looks like a Holiday Fest gone mad. :) It has been fun! As long as I am stamping, I am happy! The first pic is from my Holiday Chipboard class last Monday night. We had a great time making 5 different ornaments. Here is one I really liked.
Then, I have been doing a few things to tote with me to workshops. Let me share a few!

See why I am so confused? Lots of different holidays. I am having fun! I have made many different Halloween treat bags. I just love Halloween.

Lastly, I have a layout to share with you. I think it is quite fun. It is titled "10 things I Love". You know my passion for scrapbooking! One of the reasons I love it is it gives me a chance to reflect on a lot of memores. Some of them I don't have pictures for and that is okay. This layout was fun because it gave me a chance to reflect on the things I really do love: Here is the 10 things! 1. My Husband 2. My kids 3. Stamping 4. Florida Sunsets 5. Music 6. Starbucks (i know? Way down the line, eh?) 7. Laughing 8. Girlfriends 9. Being Silly 10. ME! -this shouldn't surprise you! :) Anyhoo, here is the layout! I hope you have enjoyed the buffet of stamping here tonight. I know my blog has been a bit quiet, but I am busy stamping and teaching what I love! I hope you had a great weekend and fit some stamping in.

Long Time No See!

Man, I am really sorry I have been such a bad bad blogger. I had a bit of a cold the past week. In fact one day I thought I was dying. Maybe I am just a princess and do not tolerate being sick well, but really I felt like crap! Today is the first day I really feel back on track. Lexi started preschool today. I have to admit a few tears shed. I think more because she just went in and said bye so quickly. Like it was nothin'. See ya mom! Ugh! Tear at the heart strings. I told her I would miss her and she told me I could just stamp or play with the cats. I liked her choices. When I did come home, I didn't know where to start. It was QUIET! I enjoyed the peace, but I admit to getting back to the school to pick her up a little early. I missed her.

In stamping news... I have been super busy! Great classes coming up! I've been working on all the September stuff and I love it. I love this time of year. I love stamping Fall themes and Halloween. I will share soon. I thought I would share a class I recently did. I love the Baroque Motifs stamp set and I love how elegant you can make these cards. Here are a few that we did. I hope you enjoy. All materials Stampin' Up! of course!!!

Have a great week and happy stampin'!
