Cards, layout and misc stuff

Itty Bitty Scrap Shack Shack had some cool card inspiration projects and I decided to play along and make some cards. The first 4 are square cards. I felt good to use some scraps :)

This is my favorite! Someone will get it in mail next month :)

After the Fiskars training I was left with few scraps that I used to demo the texture plates. I couldn't just put them in the garbage, they reminded me the ice cream cones. I pull out my CTMH ice cream stamps and started to play. The pictures are from out visit to Israel. The girls were enjoying the ice cream on a hot summer day at our friends backyard. Good memories!

This is for mom. Miss E loves to build things from the magnet blocks. She built this huge E, brought it carefully to my desk and took a picture of it. :) I am so proud of her!

On the other note, I am in the middle of organizing the basement. In one of the boxes I found the project that I started 6 (yes, six) years ago. 2008 will be a year of finished projects!

Catch up

We had a great visit to CA! My dear friends did whatever they could to entertain us - it was so good to spend some time with them, to see the kids, to talk about the old stories! I wish we could meet more! Just few more pictures from the trip. I still need to organize them.
Farmers market - a lot of oranges!

The next two are from Standford University

The girls had a blast playing dress up with the friends. Isn't she adorable?

We came back to a snowy WI and the next weekend I went to a crop with Outlaws. It was great to spend almost 2 days just scrapbooking. I am a slow scrapper but I did a several layouts and worked on my upcoming Fiskars demonstrators training, so I was happy :)

Here is some of what I made:

At the crop we did a charm swap. I made 2 charms. They are cute, but beading is not my field LOL I got some very cute charms from other outlaws including a charm with the outlaws logo!

Last Saturday was my first Fiskateers training. I had 8 ladies. I think it went well. I have few things I want to change for the next training but I am happy that my first training is done. 12 people more to go! Those are the cards I made as a samples for the training.

I am trying to make something everyday, here is my lo from yesterday. Becky Fleck sketch, HG pp and chipboard, HS snowflakes and letters, Jenni Bowlin stamp, Maya Road journaling card

I was freezing all day today for some reason. Maybe I should scrap summer pictures! LOL
