Spring is in the Air
Yes, Here in Sunnyvale, CA Spring started two weeks ago with all the trees blooming, rain falling for days and my hubby with his allergies which is keeping us up at night. I am not sure why Spring came so early but maybe it's also an indication that Summer will come early as well? I truly hope so because this girl loves HEAT!!!
I know I have not been good at updating my blog lately. But I have been creating tons of things for my workshops, upcoming classes and now I am going to start teaching at a new scrapbooking store that just opened nearby...oh, yes and I have been creating layouts for myself as well...one of my layouts is shown here.
I have been loving using my new Stampin'Up papers and they are just so beautiful. Even though I think the Spring/Summer 2008 Collection catalog is doing a terrific job at showcasing the stamps, I think it needs quite a bit of work at showcasing the true beauty of the Designer Series Papers and Scrappin' Kits.
This layout features the new Ginger Blossom Designer Series Papers and one of the new Hostess stamp sets called "For A Friend". Oh, can't forget to mention that dainty little chipboard heart from the huge chipboard paper pack "On Board Accents" and the gorgeous flower from the "Pretties Kit"...hey, did you know that you can color those flowers with just about anything? You can apply our poppin' pastels on them, color them with our reinkers (yes, the same reinkers that are used to reink our ink pads, ink spots and markers) and even stamp on them? Yes, they are truly amazing and extremely alterable and versatile.
Now, I just have to find time to work on my photo skills...see, this pictures is showing you how bad I still am at taking good photos.
