Missed Me?

Again it's been awhile since I have posted. Sorry about that. I've been trying to keep busy, since the job market is so bad and I still haven't found a job. I belong to several scrapbooking groups, and I participate in some of their swaps so that helps. I have just finished all but one swap for May and they have been put in the mail. I did the gift bag yesterday. The paper I used was Baja Breeze card stock and Parisian Breeze Speciality paper pack, these are all from Stampin Up!. I used by cricut cartridge 'Potpourri Basket' to cut the butterflies and my eyelet border punch from Stampin UP!. I think these turned out really nice. What do you think?
Speaking of Stampin Up!. I think I have found my niche, these products really inspire my passion for scrap booking. I have just joined the thousand of other passionate demonstrators and I hope to become successful. Thank you Mandy for all your inspiration. I just held my very first workshop, (thanks, Amber for all your hard work). There were 13 ladies and 8 kids. the adults made 3 cards and the kids made their very own mother's day card. Whew, was I nervous!!! This group of great ladies actually got to see me stand up and sweat. But everything turn out great and we are going to have a card club beginning in May. The 3rd Saturday of the month Amber is going to allow me to come into her home and help her and her friends create beautiful cards.
Well ladies, I've enjoyed my time with you this morning, but I really need to go clean up my mess in the Craft room, that room is worse than having kids, I have to clean it all the time, Who messes it up?

You're a HOOT

Love my Stampin Up buddies. We get together and create the coolest stuff, Thanks to our Mentor and dear friend Mandy. This is the 2 page layout we did last night. Aren't these the most adorable little characters? I did 3 workshops this week and I just can't seem to get enough of it.
I have my first party/workshop in a couple of weeks and have been thinking hard about what we are going to do. We have decided that we are going to have a mother child theme. Moms are going to make 3 cards and kids are going to make their very own Mothers Day card. I'm really excited and hope we have a good turn out. I need a Big Shot, I want a Big Shot, If any one out there knows of anyone who doesn't use theirs and is willing to part with it for a reasonable price, let me know, I just can't afford a new one right now.
I have been working on my swaps and for the most part I'm totally caught up until the first of May. I don need to work on a few that are due the first week of May. I will get to them tonight and tomorrow.
Wow! Sunday is Easter already! Where does the time go. Every year I say I just need one more week. And the same this year, If I just had one more week I'd be more prepared (right!). It has been cold and rainy for the last couple of days and it just doesn't feel like Easter is Sunday. Hopfully the weather will clear by then.
Well kind friends I'm off to create. Love chatting with you, please come back again, Happy Scrappin.
