Kit: Purse album

After working at the last 2 CKC shows I have had many requests to kit my purse album "Finding delight in everyday moments".

I just finished creating it! This is a fun accordion album made into a purse. A beautiful project...with everything included!

Here is a peek send me an email for inquiries!
Thanks! Kathie_d

Ohhhh baby!

Looky what I got in the mail today! I'm so excited to have my lo in this book by Memory Makers!
This is one of my favorite pics that I took of my 2 youngest girls a few years back (ok actually about 14 years ago...but who's counting).
Thanks for sharing my excitement...oh yea and be sure to check out the book...lots of amaZing lo's in there!

Are you my mama?

My 9 y/o son's classroom has hatched baby chicks. I just have to laugh when he tells everyone he is a "chick mama". He is so excited to be a "mama" to a baby chick! I'm not sure what we will do with his chick when it is big enough to come home...thank-goodness for internet searches & a handy husband!

Does this make me a chick grandma? Wow I'm SO not ready for that!

A busy week!

I started my week with another candle...
44 to be exact! ~~~wow~~~
how time flies when you are having fun!

I had a nice day with my family... my dh bought me a laptop...YEA! I can't wait to play around with it.

After the fun relaxing day with the family I headed out bright and early the next morning for a trip to Manchester, New Hampshire for CKC Scrap convention!

I flew from Oregon to Arizona then to New Hampshire...a total of 1o hours. It is always so much fun to go to these conventions for Rusty Pickle!

I was thrilled to be working with Eric again aka Earl...we had a blast at the show in Portland together! Eric is always great for a laugh! Eric works as the booth manager for Rusty Pickle we were so busy at the booth so we didn't get too much time to run around and goof off together...maybe next time!

I met up with Lynn Warner at the Manchester airport:

Lynn is an amazing woman with wicked scrappin talent! I just love to meet new people and I after a craaaazy busy weekend at the Rusty Pickle booth I think we will be forever bonded!

Lynn totally sure to check out her blog!

Here I am teaching the CKC Rusty Pickle make & take class! I got very nice feedback from this double lo I designed.

I met some incredible people in Manchester it was fun to be able to share tips and chat with

fellow scrappers!

I got to meet fellow chef Kristan for the first time, I'm not sure how she managed to escape my camera...but I'm sure Lynn captured a pic of her! She is very sweet and inspiring!

One of the best parts of the trip was meeting the Piggy Tale crew! They had a booth next to ours and wow are they ever the sweetest people you could ever meet...Giboney, Jeremy & Brandon!

If you ever have an opportunity stop by the Piggy Tales booth and meet them!

Lynn and I made them cards one night to thank them for all their help: "Scrapvivor" one gluestick, scraps of paper, fabric, alpha rubon's and small is a pic of the cards we created for them! It was fun to scrap it up with Lynn!

It was a fun trip to Manchester...but I'm happy to be home!


InnerLace - the song Take It All

This video was sent to me by my scrapping friend Pam...."Okay some of you know who they are but for those who dont this is our family from Israel. Ehrinn is the oldest girl and then her two sisters and brother. We are so proud of them. Also they have some publicity on the adidas website somewhere, need to check that out. Let me know what you think. Pam"

Love it Pam...had to share it with others!
