Moved to South Carolina

Well, I have been very bus with the move to South Carolina. We have een building a new house since January 2009. The big moving date was August 2nd. I got the house all set up and my scrapbook room which was number one on my agenda. Since I got it set up I have been making at least one layout a day. I have really got my groove on.

Spring Fling Layouts

This layout is of my son Matthew. He went and got his lip pierced, which I hated, so I had to take a picture of it. Needless to say he let it grow up, thank goodness.
This is a heritage Layout that I completed of my uncle and his family.

This is my daughter, Kelsey she is 13 years old.

This Layout is of my husband's 60th Birthday.

This is Brendan in the snow which was a big surprise because he lives in North Carolina and they very rarely get snow. He had a blast sleigh riding.

This is Brendan again.

This is a layout of my oldest grand child, Brendan.

This a layout I did of my grandson, Aiden.

Spring Fling 2010

It's April and time for Spring Fling! A weekend retreat for us art addicted women. It was held in Flatwoods, WV. My friend Sandy brought a girl named Crystal wih her for the weekend. I had never met her but, instantly became friends. It was like I had known her all my life. We just clicked. We had a blast!! I love doing these getaways!
Door prizes, Crystal and I won. I can't blieve I won a mini album kit. How appropriate!

Saturday night pajama party night, my friend Kim had her Bunny suit with her bunny slippers on. She was so cute!!!

The 3 musketeers!! We had a blast!

This is Crystal's first attempt at using Glimmer mist. She is jst beginning to scrapbook and is already an awesome scrapbooker in just one weekend.

Sandy standing up to scrapbook, she is in deep thought. I can tell.

Some embellishments by Tim Holtz, I have been looking for.

Flowers and an Owl I found by Prima. I love Prima, so of course I love owls too so I had to have it.

Embellishments I found at the scrapbook store we visited by Webster Pages. I was really floored by these finds. They are right up my alley if you know what I mean.

Vintage Valentine by Fancy Pants.

The new Graphisc 45, A Proper Gentleman. I love this new line. The scrapbook store we visited didn't have the other new lines. I am waiting patiently for the other lines.

My Grand Daughter

This is a layout I did of my grand daughter, her name is Samara. She is 3 years old. This was her 3rd birthday party.

My Very First ATC

I Had always wanted to make an ATC card, so I joined a swap and this is what I came up with. I was very happy with it. Now that I have started making ATC's I can't stop they are very addicting.

My good friend Sandy got her husband into making stickles organizers. I of course could not resist and not buy one. I purchased one and had it painted red, (my favorite color). I then altered it. When I started filling it up, I dicovered that I had more stickles than I thought I had. I also added my alcohol inks to it because they are about the same size as the stickles. My other paints just sit on the stand but they are out where I can see them and hopefully I will start using them more often. If you purchase one of the organizers and place your alcohol inks in it, be sure to check it often and tighten the lids so that your inks do not leak out.

It has snowed all week here in Charleston, WV. I took some pictures this morning.
