A Crop Project

This sign was on the outside of a Cracker Barrel.  I know it used to tell farmers something, but the scrapper in me says different!  I love to go to crops, the paper kind, and CKC was coming to MY town!  Excited beyond belief, until I got my email today.  They did not have enough response so they are canceling.  Boo-Hoo.  Find a group of crafters you love and organize a crop night.

Definition for the day-Not Webster's:  Crop-  A place to gather with friends and make tiny pieces of paper turn into beautiful memories.

Creative Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention in Shreveport

Over the moon about the upcoming convention right here in my very own little area!  Shreveport, September 12-14, 2013.  I have often wanted to travel to the CKC in other areas, but time just never seems available.  But NOW, here they come! So I have volunteered to work Thursday (so I can see it all) and will attend a few classes on Friday (so I can learn a few new tricks)  No pictures today, but come September...

Definition for today:  (Not Webster's) Over the moon:  Being overly excited about an event!

Oklahoma Disaster Relief

I am so glad to be working for a company that is concerned with others.  When I first joined CTMH, the tusami in Japan happened.  CTMH created an acrylic stamp, all the proceeds from that stamp went to that disaster. 

Now, we have created another stamp, A True Thank You, to benefit the efforts of the American Red Cross while they serve the victims of the Oklahoma tornado disaster.   At only $2.95, several can be purchased and have a big impact. 

My prayers are that Jesus will take this small amount and multiply and comfort those in need.

As I sit at my Scrapbooking table pouring over Facebook postings, I look up and see all (some) of my embellishments. It is then I think, I need to use them, but then my mind also thinks, once I use them, I cant replace them, because some are retired. I certainly don't want to use them up because... what if I need them!'s problems.

Happy Valentines Day

Repurposing your stamp sets is a tricky thing to do. Thanks to Kelly Groves Brandt with CTMH for reminding me of this idea. I made this Valentines day card for my hubby using our new "For Always" papers, Holiday Red cardstock and the Creepy Creatures MyAcrylic stamp set C1522. The inside reads: My heart will always beat for you! Awe! Be inspired

Not having blogged for quite some time, I decided that this should be it.  I have been absorbed in taking pictures of the grandboys.  Mostly fun pics, candid ones, the kind that you don't have to worry if the face is clean or dirty, or if they are posing oh so cute.  Just pictures.  For, some time in the future, they will be just memories.  Journaling about the fun we had while playing in the mud.  The squeals.  The screams.  The laughter.  All memories that have to be scrapbooked.  Now just finding the time.

     CANDID-  Not worrying about glamour shots, just having fun taking pictures.
